74 - SAMPLE YOURSELF        

From: Khairafik

Got a sampler? Got some synths? Here's an idea on making synth-based/breakbeat(..etc) kinda stuff. Play a drumloop (or better still - sequence one yourself and sample it) on a program such as Cool Edit and loop it. If your soundcard can play and record simultaneosly then you're good to go. Stack up some synth sounds (bass or anything) and play it real-time while recording to Cool Edit (open another window). So your playing will be `in time' with the drumloop. As you build up the phrases (parts) (and edited them, of course) you can transfer them down to your sampler. There you can do further edits, cut and paste the parts and record a sequence using those `original' samples. This way your sequence will sound more `human' and sometimes even more organic (depends on the way you do 'em). And you're not limited to just a few (on-board) effects on that synth. Works for me. .
