As an electronic music producer, one of the most important skills you can learn is how to time stretch.
Time stretching is the process of changing the tempo of an audio signal without affecting its pitch.
This is a very useful technique when you want to change the tempo of a track without affecting its pitch, or when you want to match the tempo of two different tracks.
There are a few different ways to time stretch in FL Studio, and in this blog post, we will go over how to do it using the Fruity Stretch plugin.
This plugin is included for free with FL Studio, so if you don’t have it already, you can download it from the Image-Line website.
Once you have the Fruity Stretch plugin installed, open it up and drag it onto the track you want to time stretch.
Now, all you need to do is change the tempo of the track in the plugin window, and the track will change tempo without affecting its pitch.
How To Time Stretch in FL Studio 21
- Start by selecting the region you want to time stretch.
- In the Region Inspector, find the Time Stretch/Pitch Shift section.
- Enter the desired percent change in the Time Stretch field. For example, to double the length of the region, enter 200%.
- Click the Process button.
- That’s it! The region will be time-stretched to the new length.
Access the Tools window
In the Tools window, you’ll find the Time Stretch tool.
This tool allows you to change the tempo of a selected region without affecting its pitch.
To use the Time Stretch tool, first select the region you want to change.
Then, in the Tools window, click on the Time Stretch tool.
In the Time Stretch window, you can change the tempo of the selected region by dragging the slider to the left or right.
You can also change the pitch of the region by dragging the slider up or down.
When you’re finished, click on the Apply button.
Select the Time Stretch tool
FL Studio’s Time Stretch tool is a powerful tool that can be used to change the tempo of a track without affecting its pitch.
This can be useful for a variety of purposes, such as matching the tempo of a track to that of another track, or simply changing the overall tempo of a track.
To use the Time Stretch tool, first select the track you want to change the tempo of.
Then, in the main window, click on the ‘Tools’ menu and select ‘Time Stretch.
‘ A new window will open up with a number of options.
First, you’ll need to select the ‘Stretch Mode.
‘ There are three options here: ‘Elastic,’ ‘Resample,’ and ‘Stretch.
‘ Elastic mode is the best option for most purposes, as it preserves the original pitch of the track while changing the tempo.
Resample mode will change the pitch of the track as well, which can be useful if you’re trying to create a completely different sound.
Stretch mode is the least-used option, as it can often produce artifacts in the sound.
Once you’ve selected the Stretch Mode, you can then use the ‘Factor’ slider to change the tempo of the track.
A value of 1.
Set the desired length of the region
Open the “Piano roll” by either clicking on the button in the toolbar or by using the shortcut (Ctrl+Alt+P).
In the “Piano roll” you can see all the notes that are in the pattern.
Select the notes that you want to time stretch.
Right-click on the selection and choose “Time stretch…” from the context menu.
In the “Time stretch” dialog, set the desired length of the region.
You can also choose to keep the original pitch or to pitch the region up or down.
When you’re done, click “OK” to apply the changes.
Choose the desired Pitch and Tempo settings
In the main window, navigate to the Stretch Mode dropdown menu and select the desired mode.
For example, if you want to change the speed without affecting the pitch, select “Speed.” If you want to change the pitch without affecting the speed, select “Pitch.” If you want to change both the pitch and the speed, select “Pitch/Speed.”
Next, use the Pitch and Tempo dials to set the desired values.
The Pitch dial changes the pitch in semitones, while the Tempo dial changes the tempo in percentage.
For example, if you set the Pitch dial to +12 and the Tempo dial to 150%, the pitch will be raised by one octave and the tempo will be increased by 50%.
Once you’ve set the Pitch and Tempo values, click the “Stretch” button to apply the changes.
Adjust the parameters for the type of time stretching you want
There are a few things you need to do before you can start time stretching in FL Studio.
First, you need to select the track you want to stretch.
Next, you need to select the region of the track you want to stretch.
To do this, click and drag your mouse over the region you want to select.
Once you’ve done that, you need to click on the “Time Stretch” button in the “Processing” menu.
Once you’ve clicked on the “Time Stretch” button, a new window will pop up.
In this window, you need to select the type of time stretching you want to do. There are three options to choose from: length, pitch, and both.
If you’re not sure which one you want to use, it’s usually best to just leave it on “both.”
After you’ve selected the type of time stretching you want to do, you need to adjust the parameters for that type of stretching.
For example, if you’re stretching the length of a track, you need to specify how long you want the track to be.
If you’re stretching the pitch of a track, you need to specify how high or low you want the pitch to be.
Apply the changes to the region
In the “Region” tab, click on the “Tempo” drop-down menu and select the “Time Stretch” option.
Then, use the “Percent” slider to set the amount of time-stretching you want to apply.
100% will double the length of the region, while 50% will halve it.
You can also type in a specific percentage.
Once you’re happy with the settings, click “Apply” to stretch the region.
Listen to the results of the time stretching and make adjustments if necessary
After you have time stretched your sample in FL Studio, it is important to listen to the results to see if the stretching sounds natural, or if there are any artifacts that you need to remove.
If there are any artifacts, you can try using different settings in the time stretching algorithms, or you can try a different time stretching algorithm altogether.
Once you are happy with the results, you can render the sample to a new file and use it in your project.
In conclusion, time stretching is a powerful tool that can be used to change the tempo of a sample without affecting its pitch.
It can also be used to create interesting new sounds by slowing down or speeding up a sample.
Time stretching can be performed in FL Studio by using the TimeStretch tool or by using the Stretch Mode in the Sampler channel.
