I did mention it, its a chopped sample (sliced) on every kick, snare, ghost snare, crash and ride. They’re located to keys on my keyboard which is why i cant just play a snare and pitch shift it up or down with my keyboard.
Don’t forget to use’destructively render slices’ option.
Once add your slice markers to the drum loop, right click on the waveform, navigate down the pop-up menu to ‘slices’, hover over it and then select ‘destructively render slices’. This will turn all your slices into individual samples up in the sample box on the left hand. All your slices will then be deleted from the original waveform and you will now have the original complete drum loop at note C4, along with the smaller sliced up sections at note C#4 and onwards. These can then be mapped across the keyzones like dblue was saying. If you don’t use’destructively render slices’ then you can’t map the samples across the keyzones to affect to affect their pitch and speed.
That’s the way I’ve been doing it anyway.
Mapping the slices across octaves will of course affect the pitch but it will also affect the speed of playback. So playing the sample at an octave higher will make it play at twice the speed. If you want to change the pitch the without affecting the speed you’re gonna have to download an external plug-in which will do time-stretching so the original length is retained while the pitch is shifted. Rubberband is a pretty good one, I’ll put a downloadable file of it at the end of this message. It’ll do what you what in terms of pitch-shifting and time-stretching. However it’s a destructive process, so once you apply it you can only undo the process with ctrl+Z on windows, or cmnd+Z on mac.
If you are using a mac there should be an AudioUnit plugin called AUPitch that will work for you as well. It’s the same as Rubberband, but because it’s a plugin it’s not destructive and can be turned on and off. So it could be automated to create rapid changes in pitch if you wanted to.
Both of these will pitch-shift but keep the sample length the same.
Beyond that again is a program called CDP Composers Desktop Project: [http://www.composersdesktop.com/]which can do some more advanced stuff. Although it takes some investment to learn the program, but it’s powerful and fun to mess around with.
Anyway that’s my two cents, hope it helped.
Edit: Cant upload Rubberband the file size is over the limit. Here’s a link to the download page.https://www.renoise.com/tools/rubberband-timestretch-pitch-shift It’s got versions from Renoise 2.7 onwards
