    Alright so I'm trying to learn how to get my drums in sync with my samples. I've been on here and FP and the threads all talked about chopping the sample. However most of them said that you need to chop on the drums to get the sample truly in sync. I didn't fully understand this though. Can someone explain what they mean and how it's done? I know it involves FL Slicer so I loaded the sample in but what's to be done from there is what perplexes me. Or can someone just explain how to get my drums in sync with my sample period? Your help would be greatly appreciated.

    First of, you can chop anyway you like. It's just easier for a beginner to chop on beat to make it sound right.

    What it means is that you have to listen to the samples underlying drumbeat. You will then place the staart point of your chop where there is a kick or a snare. If all your chops start with a kick or a snare you will have easier time syncing them with your own drums in the step sequencer.

    You need to get a feeling for the sample you want to cut. You need to get a feeling for the tempo and the vibe. Just play around, experiment, be creative. There is not only one way to do it. And Sabo said it right. The easiest and (sometimes!) best way is to chop at snare or kick.
