    Edit the samples first, using Audacity (y)

    http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

    Once you've edited them down, import them into FL6.

    Yep, most of the time any wave editor that's built into the sequencer software isn't strong enough - you need to get a stand-alone wave editor for the heavy duty stuff (y)

    I use Steinberg Wavelab

    One of FL's only shortcomings, that its Wave Editor can't edit MP3s (for the longest time, FL couldn't even _READ_ MP3s, and I still convert any MP3 samples to wav before I use em in my FL projects. I suppose it's good practice too, because decoding MP3 files in realtime uses more CPU than just playing back PCM wav files).


    Had to do this exact thing when I made my entry for the Knowledge Mag remix competition, right pain in the fucking arse having to cut up a bunch of MP3s with the various samples in, took me fucking ages.
