LESSON 10: Samplers

Enter the world of sample-based music through an interactive lesson in slicing, chopping and arranging samples, sourced from audio recordings as well as original material. We’ll also discuss different approaches to drum programming, from finger drumming to pattern based sequencing, and unique perspectives on each to add to your arsenal. One-on-one with your mentor, you’ll see his/her unique take on sampling and how it has evolved, from early experimentation with magnetic tape to the latest sampling engines available in Logic.
