Hi Franz

As I want to keep the characteristics of the sound, maybe the best solution
is to edit the wave file in a Audio Editing program but, instead of make it
short, maybe making a Fade Out would be better. At least the only parameter
that will be changed will be the Volume.
In this case, the "charge" over computer's processor will decrease also
with the volume (this is a second issue but important in my computer - AMD
450 MHz / 250 Mb RAM)?

Hi ...
If you are using a wav file (or fruity samples) then sure it's gonna play
the whole file ...
You should make the wav shorter in an Audio Editing program like
Soundforge, Cool Edit or Wavelab ......... OR ........ alternatively when
you click on the sampler where your sample is loaded in, then the window
that pops up has a few control ... On the SMP tab there are quite a few
knobs to turn ... Look on the TOP ROW of the two rows of buttons for one
saying DEC (decent) and turn it clockwise ... you will actually see the
waveform change shape as it decents the wave ...
You still might want to load the original wave in an editor and shorten it
to a spesific lenght. Hope it helps then ...

Hi March

I've tried this but it didn't work.
Even if you put the note length as small as you can, FL will play back the
complete sound file. Maybe the only solution is to change the file, i.e.,
change the wave form in order to make it shorter.
I also thank you for your availability in explain me Automation but I think
it's too early, I'm using FL only for about 3 weeks.
Thanks anyway, maybe later I will ask for your help in this matter.
