You can practically use any sample to create a riser effect in FL Studio and in this tutorial I’m going to show you how.
Download The Riser Effect FL Studio Project File and follow along with the tutorial. Or you can start from scratch and Do-It-Yourself!
First thing to do is to go to the Browser and right click on a sample of your choice and select ‘Edit in audio editor’ from the menu. This will open the Edison with the sample (I’m using a simple snare sample).
Select a portion of the sample you want to LOOP and press ALT+L. This will set loop points to the sample.
Press CTRL+A to select the whole sample and use the ‘Drag’ -button to drag the selection to a Sampler channel (in the Step Sequencer).
Open the Channel Settings and under the ‘Loop’ click on the ‘Use loop points’ and ‘Ping pong loop’ if you want. This enables the Sampler to use the loop points we just defined in the Edison.
Set the Pitch Knob Range to something like 24-48 semitones. The higher you set the value, the wider the pitch range for the Pitch Knob. This means you can raise the pitch more higher (or lower).
Go to the Piano Roll -view of the Sampler Channel and draw a simple note (any note) with any length you want.
In the Sampler Channel, right click on the Channel Pitch -knob and choose ‘Create automation clip’.
Draw a ‘rising’ envelope.
Listen the end results:
Experiment with different sample materials, loop lengths and Pitch Knob automation envelopes. Possibilities are unilimited!
