How to Create and Edit Sample Banks with FMOD Sample Bank Generator EX 1.68.45




What are sample banks and how do they work in FMOD?




A sample bank is a collection of audio samples that can be used in FMOD Studio or FMOD Designer to create sound effects for games. A sample bank can contain up to 256 samples, each with its own parameters such as volume, pitch, loop mode, etc. A sample bank can also have a name and an ID that can be used to identify it in FMOD Studio or FMOD Designer.


A sample bank can be created from any source of audio data, such as WAV files, images, equations, or scripts. FMOD Sample Bank Generator EX 1.68.45 allows you to generate sample banks from these sources using different methods, such as waveform sampling, bitmap sampling, generative sampling, or scripting sampling.


A sample bank can be used in FMOD Studio or FMOD Designer to create sound effects for games by assigning it to events or sound modules. An event is a container for sound modules that defines how they are triggered and controlled in the game. A sound module is a component that plays a sound effect based on its parameters and properties.


A sample bank can be played in FMOD Studio or FMOD Designer by using the built-in audio player or by connecting it to an event or a sound module. You can also preview how a sample bank sounds in different platforms (such as PC, Xbox, PlayStation, etc.) by using the platform simulator.


How to add samples to a sample bank




To add samples to a sample bank, follow these steps:



  • Select the sample bank that you want to add samples to from the sample bank list. If you don't have any sample banks yet, you can create a new one by clicking on the New button on the toolbar or by selecting File > New from the menu bar.



  • Click on the Add button on the toolbar or select Edit > Add from the menu bar. A dialog box will appear where you can choose the source of audio data that you want to add samples from.



  • Select one of the following options from the dialog box:



  • WAV File: This option allows you to add samples from a WAV file on your computer. You can browse for the file by clicking on the Browse button or by dragging and dropping it into the dialog box. You can also specify how many samples you want to add from the file and how they are distributed along the file's duration.



  • Image File: This option allows you to add samples from an image file on your computer. You can browse for the file by clicking on the Browse button or by dragging and dropping it into the dialog box. You can also specify how many samples you want to add from the file and how they are mapped from the image's pixels.



  • Equation: This option allows you to add samples from an equation that defines the waveform of each sample. You can enter the equation in the text box or select one of the predefined equations from the drop-down list. You can also specify how many samples you want to add and how they are distributed along the equation's domain.



  • Script: This option allows you to add samples from a script that generates audio data programmatically. You can enter the script in the text box or select one of the predefined scripts from the drop-down list. You can also specify how many samples you want to add and how they are distributed along the script's execution.



  • Click on OK to confirm your selection and add samples to your sample bank.



How to edit sample parameters such as volume, pitch, loop mode, etc.




To edit sample parameters, follow these steps:



  • Select the sample bank that contains the samples that you want to edit from the sample bank list.



  • Select the samples that you want to edit from the sample list. You can select multiple samples by holding down the Ctrl key or the Shift key while clicking on them.



  • Use the sample editor to adjust the parameters of the selected samples. The sample editor consists of a waveform display, a parameter panel, and a playback control. You can use the waveform display to zoom in and out, select a region, or move the cursor. You can use the parameter panel to change the values of the parameters such as volume, pitch, loop mode, etc. You can use the playback control to play, pause, stop, or loop the selected samples.



  • Click on the Apply button on the toolbar or select Edit > Apply from the menu bar to save your changes to the selected samples.



How to save and export sample banks




To save and export sample banks, follow these steps:



  • Select the sample bank that you want to save or export from the sample bank list.



  • Click on the Save button on the toolbar or select File > Save from the menu bar to save your sample bank as an FMOD Sample Bank file (.fsb). This file can be used in FMOD Studio or FMOD Designer.



  • Click on the Export button on the toolbar or select File > Export from the menu bar to export your sample bank as a WAV file (.wav). This file can be used in other audio applications or converted to other audio formats.
