  • Clicks & MIDI Gaps 4:20

    Clicks & MIDI Gaps

    Multiplier now addresses a very common problem when using samples and samplers, "clicks". See how to remove them, as well as address a subtle problem called "MIDI gaps".

  • Pitch Envelopes 2:52

    Pitch Envelopes

    Discover how to use ADSR to modulate or change pitch, in this example, to define the start of the sound.

  • Pitch Bend Melodies 2:27

    Pitch Bend Melodies

    See how to create riffs and melodies using a sampler and pitch bends. Multiplier also shows his preferred workflow, and how to set pitch bend range.

  • Tuning 5:43


    This video shows how to tune a sampler, fine-tune a sampler, as well as some considerations when working with vocals.

  • Loop Crossfade 4:03

    Loop Crossfade

    Learn how to smooth looping sustained sounds, and how to avoid phasing when doing this with vocals.

  • Filter Modulation 3:40

    Filter Modulation

    Explore two examples of filter modulation, first using a low pass, and secondly, using a notch filter.

    Multisampling is a huge part of sampling. Multiplier first introduces the idea with a simple example, and then shows a more creative application of it.

  • Velocity 3:56


    What is velocity? Why is it useful? Multiplier reveals the main three uses: filter cutoff, amplitude/volume, and multisample layers.

  • Voices 1:16


    This video quickly explains what "voices" are, and how it's necessary knowledge to apply and use portamento/glide.

  • LFO Modulation 6:12

    LFO Modulation

  • FM Envelopes 7:08

    FM Envelopes

    This is Multiplier's secret weapon for making the most out of samplers. Explore three different examples, tone, "metal attack", and "wobble attack".

  • Time Stretching & Pitch Shifting 2:48

    Time Stretching & Pitch Shifting

    Now discover the all-mighty time stretching, and pitch shifting algorithms most modern samplers offer.
