As a classically trained musician and technologist, I have somewhat mixed feelings about sampling. That being said, I agree that it certainly opens up creative opportunities for those who may not have any formal musical instrument training and from my own point of view, it allows me to perform on instruments that I certainly would not be able to play without a great deal of time back in the practice room.
To that end, I have taken baby steps into the world of sampling and thanks to Christian and the many people supporting this forum, I have decided to share my first efforts. I have created three virtual instruments, the first of which is called SnappinClaps.
This represents my very first effort and is a very basic recording of me clapping my fingers and clapping my hands.
I have also included an mp3 that I made, kind of like a ‘round’ purely using this virtual instrument and some whistling noises.
I have also included an mp3 of all three of my sampled instruments so far in a single short piece.
I hope you enjoy and feedback is welcomed.
