    Can anyone recommend a good drum sample source. I have a bunch of samples and they are pretty much all in G. I am looking for something deeper and a bit lower but still packing a punch

    I think he could have dragged the bottom of Wave Candy and as it elongates, the lower notes will appear, one way or another.

    Edison, right click the wave, tools & convert to score and dump to piano roll. Way easier.

    ACTUALLY THE REASON WHY SOME KICKS  LIKE U SAID ARE PITCHED DOWN, WELL ACTUALLY THATS NOT THE REASON. THE REASON IS BECAUSE WHEN EQ ITS GIVEN A LIL HIGH END OF AIR THATS ALL. THE LAST EXAMPLE SHOWED THE RANGE BETWEEN C1 AND C2

    all you needed to do was right click the pattern the kick drums on & send to piano roll then put the pattern on the same key as the kick lol or buy nicky romeros kick plugin or download bazzism

    The best tutorial I have seen about Waves! thank you. One question. I wonder if I can produce by FL Studio same snare timbre of one music I have in Mp3 . I love that snare .. I can see the wave difference of color in two waves by Wave Candy,. How Can I make FL studio match that wave? tks

    If you want to find the key tune of a drum sound or whatever, just use edison (detect pitch region) and save yourself a lot of time.

    first find out what the note/key that the sample is in, then go to the samples channel settings and the "INS" tab, then on the piano at the bottom right click on the top of the piano key that the sample is in. Then it makes the default note right

    What you do to create a track say in a minor. Would you have your kick in a and say your synth lead/bass in a minor?

    exactly, many people will say that it isnt necessary, but its the little things like that that can make a big difference in the quality of your tracks

    Ya sorry that's what I meant piano roll root note at c5. All the samples are in c5 ( stabs ,one shot snares) on ni mashine (built in samples) most of the samples are in c also so I jus kept it at that. What you think I should do for the genre tech house as there Are quite a bit of drums? I guess I could leave it and his mix with tracks using the circle of fifths lol I'll his never produce one shot samples in c again ? What do you think for the genre ? And thanks again heres a link you might fin

    no dude, samples can be in any key. drum samples, synth/bass samples, and even effects have their own pitch to them. it isnt 100% necessary to do this but it really helps with moombah and electro house i think. Samples definately are not root noted at C, many samples are even labeled in what pitch they are in. fl studio just has the piano roll default note (middle C) at C5

    Lol you think I could jus pitch the whole track down? All samples are root noted to c lol
