1 JJ II J I Back Close CM0340 Tutorial 3: Samplers, Samples and Beat Slicing In this tutorial we will look at a few case studies of Software Samplers. We focus on three basic software samplers: Recycle Intakt Kontakt We will focus on basic sample manipulation, beat slicing and organising samples. This should give you some good ideas for attempting the coursework

3 JJ II J I Back Close Recycle — Overview Main purpose: Take a drum/percussion loop or other sample, Automatically chop it into sections using transient detection. Each ‘slice’ is loaded into a sample playback device of some kind and assigned a MIDI note number. A MIDI file generated that plays through the loop one slice at a time with the original order and timing. Now your drum loop will run at any tempo you set. No audio has to be stretched because all you’re doing is changing the intervals between individual hits being triggered. Additionally can also alter with the sequence, triggering the slices in any order you like, or removing parts altogether. Having individual slices opens up many other possibilities.

6 JJ II J I Back Close Using Recycle — Selecting a Bar Position the mouse pointer over the L handle (the Left Locator) and drag it to the left a bit and release it. Playback now starts from this point. Set the Right Locator similarly. Drag the Left and Right Locators until the loop is exactly 1 bar long (or any multiple). To hear individual slices : With playback turned off, move the pointer over the waveform view. The pointer changes to a speaker symbol. Click with the Speaker pointer on the slices in the waveform view.
