If you’ve ever edited an audio clip in FL Studio, whether by stretching it, changing the pitch, or using the multiplier option, you may have struggled to bring it back to its default state. It’s actually pretty simple.
To reset a sample in FL Studio after having adjusted the pitch or time of the clip, you first must bring up the Channel Settings window by double-clicking the audio clip or track header. Right-click the knobs Time, Pitch, or MUL, then choose “Reset.” Each knob responds to the parameter.
How to Reset A Sample or Audio Clip Back to Normal
For clarity’s sake, I’m going to show you how to do the same process in a step-by-step format, that way I can share additional tips and tell you some other important details.
1) Double-click the Audio Clip to Bring Up the Channel Settings Window
As I explained in my other guide that was specifically on resetting a time-stretched clip, you have to double-click the clip or the track header to bring up the window.
It’s called the “Channel Settings” window, but you could also call it the sampler as well, although, it’s important to understand that the “Channel Settings” window is not the Edison sampler.
The Channel Settings window is the interface for the settings inside the Channel Rack, whereas the Edison sampler is a fully-featured sampler that can do a lot more.
2) Right-click the Time, Pitch, or MUL Knob to Reset the Parameter
Which knob you turn depends on which parameter you have changed thus far. For instance, if you have time-stretched the audio sample, you’ll need to right-click the “Time” knob and then hit “Reset.”
But if you’ve changed the pitch, you’ll need to “Reset” the Pitch knob instead. If you try and Reset one of the other knobs for a change that you haven’t actually made, it won’t work. In other words, a time-stretched sample won’t go back to default if you’ve changed the pitch.
1 Quick Tip for Stretching and Changing Audio in FL Studio
If you find that re-sizing the audio clip doesn’t appear to work anymore, it could be because you’ve accidentally turned off the “Stretch” feature. You can do this by clicking on the tiny waveform icon that’s on the top-left of the audio clip in the Playlist.
How to Reset An Edited Audio Clip Back to Its Original
It wouldn’t be a bad idea to drag the clip back into the Playlist after having deleted the remnants of the original one first.
