    Default Guide To Sampling In Fl Studio 5/6.

    THE DEFINITIVE (LOL) GUIDE TO SAMPLING IN FL STUDIO 5/6.

    Hmmm . . .

    Where to begin . . . ?

    From the beginning is a good a place to start as any I guess.

    So letís fast forward (>> ) through your relentless digging through all those dusty records.
    Finally youíve found it! That simply amazing record with that amazing voice/loop/breakdown/part and you want to sample it and make the hottest possible record known to man, but you donít know how to sample in FL.

    So lets get down to it. Is your sample dirty? Excess clicks, pops, noise, record hum, scratches etc? If you want it that way skip through this part, but I would suggest, and this is a personal opinion, that you work with the sample as clean as possible initially and dirty it up to your specifications after the fact.

    In order to clean up that sample (not too much though) I would suggest the Waves plug-ins X-Noise, X-Hum and X-click. Use Sony Soundforge 8 or any other audio editing application to clean up the whole song, cause who knows what other parts may work when you start.

    Now that you have your soon to be sampled song ready to be chopped and re-assembled just dump the whole .mp3 or .wav file into the bottom of the playlist editor. You can load up as many different files as your computer can handle. Depending on the size of the file you may just see a blank block with the name of the file appear saying that it is being streamed from your hard disc.
    In order to see the file go to the step sequencer click on the sample and click the option that lets the file be displayed.

    So now you can see your file. Let the chopping looping and screwing begin.
    In the play list editor to the left hand corner you will see a few tools that you may or may not have used. Letís try the knife tool
    In order to cut out the part you want just set your snap to Ďnoneí, zoom as close as possible and start cutting.
    Now that you have cut your loop or part play it on loop to make sure that you have cut it just right.

    Hmmm. . .
    So how do I find the tempo of this?
    Well you have options. You can either count how many bars you have sampled and adjust your tempo till the number of bars the file takes up syncs (once you havenít stretched or compressed the sample before it would remain the same). Or you can stretch or compress the sample out to the required length or the number of bars the sample contains and adjust your tempo till it sounds like normal or how you want it (think chipmunks)

    Ok, now you have your loop but you want to play another part of the song under it. Just cut out the part you want to use from the same file and make use of the Ďmake uniqueí function. Now you can have your different parts chopped up differently and donít have to worry about parts dropping out because they start after one another. Try it. Itíll make sense once you do.

    Once you click a part that you have chopped click again in an empty part of the audio section of the playlist to copy it.

    Another problem you may encounter: Hit points donít match up.
    So your snare and kick sound a bit off sometimes during the sample. What you can do and get away with without any drops in the sample is cut the sample where the hit point is off and drag the hit point in the sample back onto the line where your kick or snare hits.

    Another tip: Eq
    Eq out all kicks and bass, they are your enemy. Not really, but if you want to change the kick pattern and come up with something totally new I suggest you do it and replay the bassline. This way you can now have more to switch up in the song. Also to you can eq out most of the backing instruments under a vocal and put it in under your music.

    Donít forget to use your panning and volume automation in here also.

    So forget about that Fruity Slicer and going back and forth from program to program.
    Once you get the hang of it I guarantee that it would help you out a great deal.

    sampling in the FL "WaveTraveller" generator is much more efficient

    You have no idea how long I've searched the internet for something that would teach me how to do what you just did. Funny thing about it though is that I've become really proficient in Adobe Audition...in some cases I'm better using Adobe than Fruity...but I'm still glad I know how to do this now

    How exactly would I EQ out the drums? EQUO? I've tried it, but it just makes my sample really bland and boring, because it takes the bass out too.
