Hal Leonard Books has announced the release of Sampling Techniques for Modern Musicians, a new video course with Yeuda Ben-Atar for Groove3 subscribers.
In 14 tutorials, Yeuda Ben-Atar takes us into the always innovative, often revolutionary, sometimes controversial world of this now essential audio practice.
From rote fundamentals – What is a sampler? How do we use a sampler? – to the broadest and most complicated questions – How do we sample musical instruments? What and when should we sample? – this course serves as a guided exploration of the diverse equipment and techniques, such as
- Sampling with Ableton’s “Simpler” and advanced looping with “Sampler”
- Time stretching, voicing, and glide
- How to shape your samples with filters and envelopes
- How to use Low Frequency Oscillators
- Round Robin sampling, multi sampling, and granular sampling
A multi-instrumentalist with experience in virtually every genre, Yeuda permeates his lessons with an infectious enthusiasm for music and those who create it. His work as an instructor, musician, and producer endow him with a unique perspective on how we can best engage with and learn about sampling. Sampling Techniques is the perfect primer for anyone with a vested interest in music-making-especially through music-taking!
