How to… re­sam­ple ef­fec­tively

Future Music - - FEATURE -

‘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.
