MAS­CHINE SAM­PLING DOs & DON’TS

Future Music - - THE ART OF MODERN SAMPLING | FEATURE -

Do… ex­per­i­ment with sam­ples and ef­fects chains. Mas­chine makes it easy to add sev­eral plug-ins after a sam­pler. Try adding in de­lays, phasers, dis­tor­tion and other cre­ative ef­fects after a drum hit or one-shot. Now go back to your orig­i­nal sam­ple and tweak the con­trols. What hap­pens now if you pitch it up an oc­tave, move the start point or loop your hit? It’s great see­ing the un­pre­dictable re­sults these changes can have on a cre­ative ef­fects chain.

Don’t… over­look Mas­chine’s Macros. As­sign­ing mul­ti­ple sam­pler parameters to a sin­gle ro­tary can be a great way to add a touch of sonic weird­ness. For in­stance, add a chunk of au­dio into a sam­pler and see what hap­pens when you tweak var­i­ous com­bi­na­tions of pitch, start points, en­ve­lope and LFO set­tings. This can work par­tic­u­larly well with short looped hits and melodic sounds.
