FL studios...
So ive ben using fl studios 8 since it came out, havent played alot with every single setting/adjustment/ect, but ive ben using it to make "rap" instrumentals.

Anyone who has experience with the program (any version, theyr pretty much all the same), can someone tell me how to change the tempo speed of a sound sample without it changing the "pitch" of the sample also. I cant find info on google or forums. Im trying to actually mash a song for my first time, using vocals from "God's Gonna Cut You Down" by Johnny Cash, but its pissing me off that the vocals are changing pitch when i try to adjust the tempo of the sample :(

From what I understand you would have to change the tempo and then lower the pitch on the sound byte separately as changing the tempo inherently changes the pitch.
Woah, mama!

If you're still on FL's basics I'd suggest you switch to Ableton Live or Bitwig. FL is awful.

Ive heard enought about using different programs, blah, blah, blah. I have no reason to go and buy a whole new program when i can do 90% of the same shit just in a wierd format, compared to other shit. One of the most "important" reason im using fl studios 8 is because it fits on a 1g flashdrive (along with what ever song/vlc/mp3 files that are created from it) because i can take it anywhere.



I asked one question, the first reply seems to be the only "on topic/best" responce.




Thanks for playing ;)

I remember FL studio pro was good if you just added a gentle high freq to most things and had a decent enough third party vst compressor to bring it out. If your ears are tuned (eta: and speakers raw), you can pretty much calibrate any sound with quality plugins, regardless of engineers (catered to a brand) hammering you with protools being the bee's knees'

Is there a pitch shifter for it? Once you settle on a tempo, you can "do it by hand" through something else. It might take some time stretching and resampling, but you can reimport the file without using a live effect and have a hardcopy of it.

I used to like working with Celemony Melodyne for lossless stretching of wav files without changing the pitch. Worked wonders

so my "only" option is to load a vocal file and (re)build an instrumental behind it..
instead of loading the vocals into a prebuilt instrumental.


figures.


guess i need to a bit extra work "just in a weird format", again :P


"thanks" for the help :P

Yes....


But between the pitch shifter and tempo, either one of them adjusts both of them at the same time...

Just wondering if i can adjust one somehow without affecting each other :/


Just guess i have to build an instrumental specifically around the vocals. "Weird format" but still doable.

A true pitch shifter won't just speed up or slow down a sample to change the pitch. It will preserve the speed while altering the pitch. Maybe a third party wave editor can do it.

Maybe you can play/export a copy of the wave to file in the right tempo and run it through another pitch shifter app and then reimport it.

It should be a native process of FL.
