Reversing cymbals and samples in FL Studio on Youtube
Reversing samples and cymbals in FL Studio
One thing we talk about all the time is creating interesting parts and build ups between transitions of songs. When we talk about doing this we usually bring up the fact that you can use a reversed cymbal sample to really build a track up. In this tutorial we show you not only how to reverse symbols but to basically reverse any type of sample or audio file that you pull into FL Studio.
Using the reverse effect can really get a unique sound that you couldn’t get otherwise. Reverse guitar for example can give you a very unique sounding sample and really almost anything that you reverse can have a very dynamic vibe to it. The reason I mention guitar is because an acoustic guitar reversed can sound so cool in any track. Reverse samples can really provide an atmosphere if layered quietly in the background or be used as an intro. The main reason I point these examples out is because I want people to know that reversing cymbals is one great feature but don’t stop there. Try this on many other things and I think you’ll be surprised at the interesting parts you come up with. if you really want to get creative try reversing a word or a couple words of the vocal line right before it hits a big chorus part. This can then be layered with a reverse symbol and add a whole new dynamic to it.
In the tutorial above we show you how to reverse samples using the channels window. It can also be done in FL Studios Edison, it really is a matter of preference.
