How to Convert a FLP File to a MP3

FLP files are audio files you create yourself with the Fruity Loops Studio software utility. Fruity Loops lets you add your own sound effects and samples, and then loop them together to assemble entire songs. There aren't any conversion programs that translate FLP files to MP3 files, but you don't actually need one. The Fruity Loops program includes a built-in exporting feature that lets you take any FLP file you've made and export it as an MP3 track.

Step

Open the Fruity Loops program. Click the "File" button at the top of the screen and select "Export."

Step

Click the "MP3" check box underneath the "Output Format" heading at the right side of the window.

Step

Click the "Bitrate" slider. Drag the slider to the right to make the track a higher quality MP3 file with clearer audio. Drag the slider to the left to make the track a lower quality bitrate, which also makes the final file much smaller.

Step

Click the "Leave Remainder" check box if you want to leave any trailing sounds at the end of the audio track. Click "Cut Remainder" if you want to end the track as soon as the main sounds stop looping.

Step

Select the "HQ for all plugins" check box if you used any special third party plug ins when creating the audio file.

Step

Click "Start" to save the FLP file as an MP3 file with the same name in the same folder on your hard drive.
