The Piano roll Chopper is an advanced note slicing tool that can use standard score files as slicing templates.
The Piano roll Chopper uses standard FL Studio Score files (*.fsc) as slice patterns . Click the Browse button to select a groove template. The Piano roll shows real-time preview of the results. See below for some guides about making such patterns.
This section lets you set the options that will be used for slicing.
Chopper and Arpeggiator patterns are regular Piano roll scores, but are interpreted in a special way to fit the purposes of the Chopper and Arpeggiator tools. Templates can be found in the FL Studio installation directory under ..\Data\Patches\Scores\Arpeggiator or if you select the Piano roll menu > File > Open score, this should open in the Scores folder.
1 (Green) - The boundary of green notes defines the chopping pattern while the position relative to C5 the transposition. For Chopper scores all notes should be placed on C5, this instructs the Chop tool that all notes of the original score should remain at their original pitch. For Arpeggiator scores, source notes will be Arpeggiated relative to the interval between C5 and the notes set, For example, C5 = no pitch change, F5 = +5 semitone transpose and A4 = -3 semi-tone transpose. So if the source note in the original Piano roll was B4 and the Arpeggiator score was at F5 for the overlapping portion of the source and arpeggiator score, then the B4 would be transposed to D (+5 semitones).
5 (Blue) - Defines a note that will not be chopped.
9 (Pink) - Pink notes are not affected by the octaves range set in the dialog
13 (Yellow)- Defines the length of the pattern, useful when the chop/arp pattern does not extend to the end of the bar.
