Default Help with sampling (Complete novice here)

Hi all, so I have just been beginning to sample beats on FL studio and I was wondering if there is any possible way to eliminate specific parts of sampled beats.

For example, if I love the synth line, but hate the drum backbeat in a sample how can I eliminate that backbeat just so I hear the synth line by itself. Up until now, all I can sample has been either vocals acapella or very very simple musical beats with not much else going on besides one specific sound.


Any help would be greatly appreciated!

there is a beat slicer utility in FL you can probably try to use. You could also trying eliminating frequencies through the equalizer.

you would also end up removing those same frequencies from the synth line - maybe not as apparent in the resulting sound as if you tried it with a vocal but it still wont sound like the same synthline with the beats removed...

True, then recreating your sample would probably be the best way.

Sorry to resurrect this thread but I tired searching for a guide on sampling.

But anywhere here goes. I saw a video of youtube of a producer "Timofey" recreating entire songs. I would like to recreate a part of a song in order to sample it. How do you identify and then find the sounds? If it helps I'm looking to sample what I believe to be a electric guitar rhythm from "Welcome to NYC - Cam'ron"

any help would be appreciate, total noob here

what do you mean by this?

identify meaning to decide what instrument/synth patch was used to make a given sound?

and what do you mean by "find"? work out how to recreate the sound using a synth/instrument?
