Eliminating White Noise in High Hats using FL Studio

Apr 4, 2024

For those using FL Studio, unwanted white noise in your high hats can put a damper on your music's overall quality. In this article, we'll guide you through the process of eliminating white noise from your high hats to produce a crisp, clean sound.

  1. Identify the Source of White Noise: First, identify if the white noise is coming from the sample, plugin, or recording. Solo your high hat track and carefully listen for white noise issues.

  2. Use a High-Quality Sample: If the white noise is originating from the sample you're using, consider replacing it with a higher-quality, noise-free sample.

  3. EQ your High Hat: If you're using a plugin, try using an equalizer (EQ) to eliminate frequencies responsible for white noise. In FL Studio, add Fruity Parametric EQ 2 to the mixer channel. Isolate and remove the band responsible for the white noise, typically found in the higher frequency range.

  1. Utilize Noise Reduction Plugins: If the issue persists, consider using a noise reduction plugin, such as Noise Gate in FL Studio or other third-party plugins like iZotope RX or Waves X-Noise, to minimize the unwanted noise.

  2. Improve your Recording Environment: If you're recording your high hats, ensure your recording environment is free from any interference. Use proper microphone positioning, and consider investing in a higher-quality microphone or audio interface to reduce noise.

With these tips, you'll be well on your way to achieving clear, polished high hat sounds in your FL Studio projects. Happy producing!
