1 Since we’re mess­ing about in the playlist, now might be a good time to check out a handy new fea­ture that’s sure to in­spire any beat­maker stuck in a rut. We’ll start by drag­ging a drum loop into the playlist. It’s noth­ing fancy – in fact, it’s a bit ho-hum.

2 Click the lit­tle wave­form icon in the up­per-left cor­ner of our clip to open a menu of var­i­ous clip-based func­tions. Long-time FL Stu­dio view­ers will note that there’s a new Chop sub­cat­e­gory un­der the Re­gion menu. Se­lect­ing it, we can avail our­selves of a wealth of pre­set beatchop­ping pre­sets.

3 Se­lect the Drum and bass pre­set. The clip is au­to­mat­i­cally chopped and re­ar­ranged into some­thing far more in­ter­est­ing than our orig­i­nal synth rock pat­tern. Chop pre­sets are clearly cool for breath­ing life into dull beats, but these pre­sets can also be ap­plied to any au­dio clips you record live into FL Stu­dio.
