Change the Pitch of White Noise in FL Studio: Step-by-Step Guide

Jan 23, 2024

White noise is an essential sound design tool that can add depth and character to your music projects. In FL Studio, you can easily create and manipulate white noise to suit your needs. One popular way to use white noise in music production is by changing its pitch. In this step-by-step guide, we will walk you through the process of changing the pitch of white noise in FL Studio.

Step 1: Create white noise

  • Open FL Studio and start a new project.
  • Add a new channel by right-clicking on the Channel Rack and clicking 'Insert.' In the list of plugins, select '3xOsc.'
  • In 3xOsc, set all three oscillators to white noise by clicking on each oscillator's waveform dropdown box and selecting the noise icon.

Step 2: Route white noise to a mixer track

  • In the Channel Rack, assign the white noise to a free mixer track by changing the 'Track' number in the channel settings.

Step 3: Add Fruity Granulizer

  • Click on the mixer track where you assigned the white noise. In the mixer's effects slots, click on a free slot, and select 'Fruity Granulizer' from the list of effects.
  • In Fruity Granulizer, click the folder icon to open the sample menu. Drag and drop the white noise sample from the Channel Rack to the Granulizer. This will load the noise sample into the plugin.

Step 4: Change the pitch

  • In Fruity Granulizer, find the 'Pitch' knob and turn it to your desired pitch level. You will hear the pitch of the white noise change as you do this.
  • Use the 'Grain spacing' and 'Wave spacing' knobs to alter the texture of the sound further if desired.

Step 5: Final adjustments

  • Adjust the attack, decay, sustain, and release (ADSR) settings in both the 3xOsc and Fruity Granulizer to your preference.
  • Add additional effects like reverb or compression to enhance the sound further if desired.

After following these steps, you will have successfully changed the pitch of white noise in FL Studio. Experiment with different pitches, settings, and effects to achieve diverse and captivating sounds for your projects.
