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:

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?

That;s great to hear! many thanks, good motivator to make the final part!

That being said: maybe later tonight or tomorrow.

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

Cool glad it worked out. Let me know if it's useful.

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/
