    Introduction

    Yeuda Ben-Atar welcomes you to the course and discusses what this course is all about.

  • image description 3:26

    History of Sampling

    Sampling is the art of taking existing sounds and re-purposing them. In this video, Yeuda goes over the history of sampling from its origins, its stages of evolution, and where it is today.

  • image description 1:11

    Signal Flow

    Before we talk about sampling techniques and tricks, you have to learn how a sampler works. In this video, Yeuda covers the signal flow of samplers.

  • image description 2:42

    One Shot Sampling

    In this video, Yeuda starts working within Ableton to teach you about sampling using Ableton's built in Simpler instrument.

  • image description 2:36

    Zero Crossing

    A big part of a sampler is the ability to loop a sample. In this video Yeuda shows you how to create a seamless loop in Ableton.

  • image description 6:00

    Sample Looping

    We've now seen how to create a basic loop in Ableton. In this video Yeuda dives a little deeper and shows you more creative options with loops and Ableton's Simpler.

  • image description 4:25

    Advanced Looping

    You now have the fundamentals of creating loops and samples within Ableton's, Simpler. In this video, Yeuda switches to Simpler's big brother, Sampler and teaches you some more advanced looping techniques.

    Time Stretching, Voicing, and Glide

    In this video, Yeuda goes over time stretching, voicing, glide, and all the characteristics of each sampling technique.

  • image description 2:09

    Filter Section

    You don't always want to use the full sonic spectrum of a sample. In this video, Yeuda goes over the filter section of Sampler and how you can use it to shape your samples.

  • image description 7:57

    Envelopes

    Attack, Decay, Sustain, Release. Not sure what those are? In this video, Yeuda takes a look at envelopes and shows you how to further manipulate a sample.

  • image description 4:47

    LFO's

    Low frequency oscillators allow us to take the movement of a waveform and apply it to different parameters. In this video, Yeuda shows you how to use an LFO in your sampling.

  • image description 4:16

    Round Robin Sampling

    Round robin is a technique to inject more realism into your samples. In this video, Yeuda shows you how to how to incorporate round robin to make your sampling sound more realistic.

  • image description 10:49

    Multi Sampling

    In this video, Yeuda shows you how to do create realistic multi sampling using individual samples.

  • image description 3:42

    Granular Sampling

    A granular sampler is an instrument with granular synth capabilities. Granular samplers divide the samples into really small pieces called grains. In this video, Yeuda shows you his best practices for granular sampling.

  • image description 1:35

    Interpolation and Sample Quality

    In this last video, Yeuda goes over interpolation, sample quality, and how it effects the sonic quality when transposing.

  • image description 3:23

    Clearing Samples

    Yeuda discusses how to clear samples and the overall legality of using samples.

Thorough, professional, helpful

Loved this straightforward, direct and lean set of tutorials. I really thought that I knew this stuff, but I didn't, and feel humbled by how clearly Yeuda explains it. I worked through all the tutorials with Live running, too. The broader explanations of how and why are also useful for samplers in Reason too. Very useful.

Great introduction to Sampling

I am an intermediate level producer with a fair amount of experience with Ableton Sampler and Kontakt, however I needed some remediation on Simpler since I first learned about Simpler on V 8 and I wanted to catchup. The presenter did a great job for the beginner and more experienced electronic musician - particularly with granular synthesis, multi-sampling, round-robin sampling and Sample clearing. I look forward to Yeuda delivering - Advanced Techniques for the Modern Musician.

Straight to the meat

Set out very clearly and logically. Straight to point and the videos are not so long so that you can absorb the information info better. Very good tutorial and will definitely look forward to more from this tutor.

Good series

First time I've seen this presenter on Groove3. If new, a welcome addition. Content was good and the length of each video wasn't too long. For someone who's not done too much or any sampling, a must watch and for more experienced sampling artists, you might find something you didn't know. Although heavily focused on Ableton Live, the concepts are generic enough to use on any sampler.
