This tool generates an automatic chart from your FL Studio .midi files. Using this to chart FL Studio songs speeds up the process when starting to put the chart together.

  • Quickly generate a basic chart that you can tweak
  • Basic charting algorithm – e.g. lower pitched notes charted green, higher pitched orange
  • The note timing will match your midi, will be perfect
  • It charts starpower & Sections


Steps

  1. Export the midi file using FL Studio

    • Go to piano roll and press file > export midi

  2. Convert the midi into text

  3. Copy & Paste the generated text into the chart.text file

    • Copy from “MFile” to “TrkEnd”

    • Ensure there is one blank line/space after the pasted text, or it will fail to convert
  4. Open the Autochart Tool

    • Press 1

    • Enter “chart” as the name

    • Select the track (always “1”)

    • This will generate a chart file

  5. Paste the .chart file into the folder with your Song
