Samplers & Sampling
One of the most effective and powerful ways to craft your own unique sounds is to make use of sampling. With the sampler, you can manipulate audio in the fashion you choose, whether to recreate faithfully an extant instrument or to mangle beyond recognition a sample lifted from a record. In this workshop, we will explore how to create your own custom patches in several different software samplers. In the process, we will explore concepts such as sample editing, key mapping, filtering, modulation, and granular synthesis.
