Great opportunities in Fruity Loops (especially that it works in VST and Logic).
But how do i stop a sample in the middle of it's loop on the sequencer in Fruity Loops?
For an example: We have a vocal sample in WAV that says "Drop the beat" .
If we want it to shout out loud: "(Drop)(Drop)(Drop)(the beat)".. It will sound like this: "(Drop) (the/Drop) (beat/the/Drop) (beat/the/Drop) (beat/the) (Beat)"....["( / )" = symbolizes many sounds at the same time..].
And the velocity function on the step-sequencer only allows us to change the sound, at the same step that the sample begins... so how do we cut a sample in the middle of.. it??
I think this function must be available in the program, or else the manufactures has work to do in further versions of Fruity Loops!
You can't stop the sample somewhere in the song.
You also can't exactly stop the sample in its middle.
Not without changeing pitch.
Well, you can, but then you have to use the
volume-envelopes which can be accessed over the sample-window. Then you'd just have to try shorten the decay and release times as long until it cuts sharp through the middle of the sample.
The problem is, that you now have an altered sample, because Fruity Loops processes sample-editing mostly destructive. Only plugins are processed non-destructive.
So you'd have to put the original sample in it a second time, if you want it in its full form as well.
But there's another way which should be the solution to your problem.
In the sample-window look at the page with the envelopes and check the box 'Cut itself' or "Cut by itself' or something. Then change both alterable values to 1.
Now the sample
