    Hey all,

    So i've been working on a new resample technique. It's a combination of my old workflow and some new elements. I used to just make a long recording with loads of automations, in the key of the song, using portamento etc.

    Then load that recording in my project and start layering, arranging, pitching that. I split the frequencies, add fx to each channel (low, mid, high) etc. From there on my new technique starts. I record samples that are perfect for granulating. And they must be complementary to the bass your re sampling. Load the granulized audio in a slicer and start layering it with your bass samples.

    The song below is still a work in progress, but shows to some extend what I'm doing atm:

    Great Stuff Man! I just started getting into this method of re sampling and it's always great to see how other people do things to get a starting point for my own way =D

    Thanks for the vids!

    This is probably a dumb question but I dl'ed KT Granulizer to experiment with the stuff you did in the first vid but I can't seem to access it in Logic. Do I need to put the .component file somewhere in order to get logic to recognize it?

    I figured it out. I had to pull the .component file into the Logic library. Nothing too tough. Thanks for the reply

    So While doing the 3rd tutorial I cover some aspects of audio analyzes. Since this is an important part of glueing the bass lines and samples together. It's really easy with the right tools. So I wrote a "Best Free Audio analyzer" Post on my website.

    I'll finish the tutorial Saturday evening. For now, check out the analyzer VST round up: http://durkkooistra.com/2011/03/12/the-big-free-audio-analyzers-round-up/

    Nice 1, I mainly use SPAN (and PAZ from WAVEs but it's not free).

    It was great so see there are so many great free plugins available.
