Resample Audio Tracks Natively

Sun Aug 30, 2020 12:07 am

Since Logic has been making some Hiphop-friendly tweaks recently, I figure it’d make it even better if they allowed resampling so you can change a sample from say 44kHz to 8kHz & so on & so forth. FL Studio allows this feature and this is why they are a go-to for a lot of hiphop beat makers. I hope to see this in the near future on Logic.

That’s not what I’m speaking about. That’s to convert the samples of a project to 44kHz or 48 or 96 or 192. I want to be able to drop it to lower rates to achieve different sounds from it. If you want to spend the time to understand what I mean, google a beat maker named “Cubeatz” and how he makes samples. What you showed is not that

Then you can import your sample in a project and change the project sample rate to achieve this. You can then bounce the sample again.

Or you could simply use Flex Time in Speed (FX) mode, which is a faster workflow and should achieve the same results with even more flexibility.

The video is 14 mn, I don't have time to watch it, but judging from your last description I believe I answered your question. Did you try what I suggested?

I am familiar with what you suggested, but it gives different results. I appreciate it anyway though, thank you

The Bitcrusher plugin has a downsampling option

I'm looking to do this too after watching the same video from Cubeatz, did you ever manage to find a way to do this in logic?

Unless you can specifically link to the relevant spot in the video, no one will bother to watch the entire video in order to help you.

The spot in the video is from 0:47 to 1:30. Thanks

So it appears FL is a) changing the sample rate, which you can do with the Bitcrusher, and b) applying a steep lowpass filter slightly below the Nyquist frequency (half the sample rate), which you can do with the Channel EQ.

Okay thank you, so say I wanted to reduce the sample rate of a sample from 44100 to 11025 - I would select downsampling to 4x and I would then need to apply a steep lowpass filter at 5512 (half of 11025)?

Thanks for your help

Yes. Try in reversed order as well.
