Logic Tutorial: Resampling Pads Using EXS24 + Sculpture

November 27, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Logic Pro user Matt Shadetek demonstrates resampling using Logic’s EXS24 and Sculpture, details below:

In this tutorial we introduce the concept of resampling: we’ll take an existing part of our track, in this case a synth chord played on Sculpture, and convert it to audio so that we can manipulate it further using Logic’s EXS24 sampler. Our goal in this example is to create a sound I associate with old school underground dance music including 90s house, hardcore and jungle: take a chord, put it into a sampler and then repitch the chord it by playing on a keyboard. The parallel harmonic movement that results can create an interesting, slightly dark feeling.

The next step is to make those chords sustain by using the looping functions in the sampler. This will produce looping artifacts in some cases, one problem being that the loop will playback faster if we play it at a higher pitch. We might not always want this, but in this case it adds an interesting uneven rhythmic feeling to our resampled sounds and completes the sound. This technique can be used for all kinds of sounds and was a popular technique in creating some of the best early drum and bass ‘hoover’ style basslines. Use your imagination and experiment! – Matt Shadetek
