Have you ever wanted to stream your beats or tracks on Twitch for everyone to listen to? Well, we get how important it is to share the vibes around.
Of course, streaming your newest tracks, or even videos, on Twitch would require a few extra steps. Don’t worry, though. We got you!
We’ll be tackling how to download and use OBS to stream FL Studio sessions for Windows.
Before you know it, you’ll get to start streaming your awesome audio sessions in no time! Just make sure to follow and review each step carefully.
Using FL Studio and Twitch
Let’s focus on making music or awesome tracks. To record and live stream your sessions, you’ll need to download and use any live streaming software.
Open Broadcaster Software (OBS) is a great way to achieve what we want.
Plus! It’s a free, open-source application.
The initial setup and configuration may be a little confusing if you’ve never worked with OBS before, so we’ll be starting from there.
Step 1: Download OBS
Download the application from OBS Studio. Here’s a link to where to download it.
Step 2: Open the Audio Settings in FL Studio
In FL Studio, Go to Options > Audio Settings.
This will help get FL Studios ready to be set up with OBS a little later.
Step 3: Enable the FL Studio ASIO Driver
ASIO stands for Audio Stream Input/Output.
It is an audio driver designed to make live audio recording and tracking in Windows possible and easy.
An audio driver is a computer application used by a computer’s operating system to recognize and properly interact with an audio device.
Under the Audio Tab, go to Device and Select FL Studio ASIO Driver.
If you don’t have it yet, you can download the driver here.
Step 4: Open OBS, Configure Desktop Audio Capture and Select the Main Audio Option
Under Audio Mixer in OBS, go to Desktop Audio and click on the Gear Icon.
Then click on Properties.
Next, click the Drop-Down Arrow next to Device and select your Main Output.
You should see the name of your audio interface next to Main Output.
For example, if you have a Komplete Audio 6 audio interface set-up, select it from the drop-down options.
Step 5: Test the Audio Altogether
Go back to FL Studio and play some beats. It’s time to go crazy because we’re testing the waters.
While the audio is playing, you can open OBS again. This is to check if the Desktop Audio volume meter responds to the audio playback that’s going on in FL Studio.
If it does, then we’re all done with this part.
Configuration is complete, and you can record or stream your production sessions on Twitch!
Step 6: Try It on Twitch
Now that it’s all set up, we can try streaming your FL studio sessions now on Twitch!
Open the Twitch website on your browser, and make sure your account is logged in.
Go to the menu, and click Dashboard > Settings. Click the Stream Key, and then select the Show Key.
Highlight the stream key and copy it using ctrl + c on your keyboard.
Open OBS and go to its Settings. On the left of the settings menu, select Streaming. On the drop-down menu next to Service, select Twitch. Choose a server close to your location for the lowest possible latency when streaming.
In the Stream Key field, paste your Twitch Key that you copied earlier.
And there you have it! You’ll get to stream your awesome audio tracks from FL Studio live on Twitch.
Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some frequently asked questions and their answers ready for you.
Is FL Studio Worth It?
Yes, FL Studio is an awesome music production software that’s totally worth it.
It’s more for making music and focuses more on audio. That means if you’re more for editing and producing videos, you’d have to look into other apps.
Looking on the brighter side, it’s a great affordable choice for any up-and-coming music producer. It also worlds well with both Windows and macOS.

Is FL Studio Good for Beginners?
Yes, it’s great for beginners!
It’s one of the easiest Digital Audio Interfaces to learn compared to Ableton, Pro Tools, or Reason.
How Do I Center My Mic While Recording?
Sometimes, when live streaming a session of FL Studio on Twitch, the mic would be played on the left or right of the channel, and it isn’t that great.
Under the Audio Mixer, click on the gear icon next to your mic. Next, select Advanced Audio Properties.
Make sure the Mono Checkbox is checked and that the L/R slider is centered.
TIP: It’s better to have your mic connected to your audio interface rather than a USB mic.
We hope this helped you figure out how to live stream your FL Studio sessions on Twitch.
Just remember that whatever tracks you make and whoever comes by to listen, it’ll be a total blast.
