Hi guys im fairly new to producing and i have been hearing the term "twist up a sample" everywhere. Now in theory i have a good idea of what this means in general but i have no idea how to go about it and when i attempt to "twist" i might as well just get up and do the dance! I can make some pretty decent bass sounds that sound really good over a beat but then when i try to manipulate that sound it all goes wrong and sounds S**t So.. I was hoping some of you might share some of your techniques in regards to what you do to twist up your sounds and add variety. I have been trying NI massive out for a while and can smash out a bassline from within the programme but its when i bounce the sound and try to do something with it that things go all wrong. As ive never in my life been around anyone else doing this sort of thing i just cant get my head round what approach to take when trying to "twist up a bounced sample. I know that things will vary from sound to sound and what your actually looking for from it but i know there must be some common practice sorta methods that you guys can share.. Please?
