Hi everyone, first of all thanks so much for the amazing tips and feedback. To @plainjanefrancis point, I think I def needed a bit of time off of it. Typical learning curve frustration. I think hitting the wall was the wrong way to address it.
Thing is, tiredness really messes you up… I sample this drum break, but don’t really like it but I’m too tired to look for another one so let’s move on to melodic parts while still listening to this “meh” break and I hate it more and more up to the point when I go to bed angry after spending hours on it going nowhere.
Listened to it the next day = jeeeeesus this is bad, deleted whole pattern and restart fresh.
@mr_bernard you are right, it’s not about the finishing product. It’s also about learning the functionalities of this great sampler that will help you have more fun and perfect your skills. I’m still using in a basic way. Nothing too fancy and I have yet to experiment with fills and conditional trigs. I’m also making lists of things to experiment when I’m away from it. I usually get these ideas when I cycle to work.
@Hans_Olo I used some old electribe waveforms but haven’t experienced resampling them yet. You mean like making stabs out of them, or better waveforms?
@alien_brain I actually tried to not limit myself to sampling records, I took out an old casio plastic keyboard, hooked my SP303 with vinyl sim on and got great spooky stuff out of it. That definitely helped!
@subLimb I really need to watch and listen to other peeps! good point
Also I’m playing at my local East London pub tonight and wanted to cram as many decent beats as possible in the DT to get a proper set. Well I have 5 decent ones which is better than nothing and there will be more next time let me know if you’re around The Chequer’s E17 @Artsutanov
