With the release of the latest FL Studio Guru video, we have reached the 20 video mark.

 

If you haven't checked it out yet then the Free FL Studio Guru series aims to cover:

 

  1. Tutorial videos that cover the commonly asked questions in Looptalk. We’ll try to keep these around 3 minutes.
  2. Top Tip videos that cover those ‘Power user’ shortcuts and features that really make FL Studio fly.
  3. Blogs about the music production, technology, software and anything else we think is cool and relevant to the producing musician.

In this tutorial we explore the effects of the interpolation settings on the live audio from Sampler Channels & Audio Clips.

 

 

Interpolation is a curve fitting process that computes intermediate sample 'amplitude' data between the known sample points (filling in the gaps). This will reduce aliasing when samples are transposed.

 

 Interpolation is only used when the pitch is transposed. Like most things, interpolation uses some CPU power, so FL Studio gives you the option to have different live and rendered interpolation settings.

 

So what about other plugins?

 

VST, Dx & FL Native plugins (synths & samplers) may or may not have their own internal interpolation settings (sometimes called over-sampling).

 

If you check Sytrus for example you will see it has its own Live (Draft) and Render settings. All good plugins interpolate/oversample or whatever, but some just don't show these settings to the user.

 

To make sure plugins DO put their best foot forward when rendering, use the "HQ for all plugins" on the Render dialog and the select "Notify about rendering mode" on the Wrapper settings.

 

To download the project and plugin used in this tutorial visit this Looptralk thread.

 

Enjoy!
