Syncing to Transposing Slider... Or something.


Recommended Posts

Basically I have a couple of VSTI's that aren't transposing with the rest of the instruments when I move the slider. The whole slider range seems to change the VSTI's pitch up or down 1 semitone where it should transpose it 12.

This is really annoying me now, is there anything I can do? Thanks a lot! ^o^

Are you talking about the master pitch slider on the top left, or the pitch slider in a single channel?

For pitch bend range on a channel, it probably depends on the VST. Generally, however, there should be a setting to control the pitch bend range within the VST. Have you looked for that? I'm assuming you've done this, but have you checked the range on the "Plugin" tab of the channel window for the VST?

Yeah, the master slider. I have a habit of transposing everything up a couple of tones and leaving it there only certain plugins won't work- Magic 8 Bit off the top of my head. I've had a look about in the plugin tab and checked and unchecked options but nothing's working.

Yeah I know... It's just pushing up the transposing slider is a nice way of making a song sound different if you know what I mean. You can throw it up a couple of semitones and it sounds "new" which is advantagious as the different parts can be heard from that "first listen" perspective.

If you really want to be ridiculous and roundabout, alter the pitch seperately after exporting (in Soundforge or something or even Edison), but before exporting, divide your project's BPM by (1+the % you're increasing the pitch by).

e.g.

bpm / 1.5 (33% slower)

pitch * 1.5 (50% higher)

= 50% higher, same speed

To actually answer your question though.. if you like being able to quickly turn up the pitch of an entire project, you're probably SoL at least with FLStudio. For one thing, you'll never get the master pitch knob to affect audio clip tracks.
