How to… resample effectively
‘Resampling’ (recording a processed signal down to audio, then further manipulating it) is often discussed, but can be hard to master.
The main ‘pro’ is that complex modulation, timbral movement and effects are baked into the audio file, influencing what you generate next. So, if you bounce down a bass note featuring unique twists through the course of a note, then load that single note into a sampler, you can set loop points around a particular section, then apply legato glide. Playing back your new sampler instrument across the keyboard gives a new take on that original noise.
