Sampling is huge in music production. We all use samplers, but very few of us know how they work and how to effectively deploy them in our productions. Ableton’s awesome Sampler is seamlessly integrated into Live’s workflow which makes it both easy to master and intuitive to use in both your “live” and studio tracks.
This tutorial is divided into two parts: Part One begins with a look at how sampling works. You’ll see all of Sampler’s basic controls and functions as Olav guides you through all the options on Sampler’s GUI. Once its functionality has been clearly explained, Olav takes a deep, sonic dive into sound design.
And now the fun begins: In Part Two you're invited into Olav’s audio workshop where you’ll see him create his sonic masterpieces. He turns vocals into kick drums AND funky bass parts. Master Basoski then shows you how he designs swooping sweeps and staccato stutter FX. He also does some cool “oldskool” time-stretching.
So join Olav Basoski in this informative Sampler sound design tutorial and see how you can release the outrageous audio potential locked up in Ableton’s premium instrument: Sampler!

A drum machine, sometimes called a rhythm machine, is an electronic musical instrument designed to imitate the sound of drums or other percussion instruments. They are used in a variety of musical genres, not just purely electronic music. They are also a common necessity when session drummers are not available or desired. Smaller and lighter than a VHS tape, the drum machine comes with various repeating drum patterns and styles to serve as the backbeat for everything from hard rock to jazz, pop, funk, salsa and hip hop. Tempo or beats per minute (BPM) is adjustable, and some drum machines also include percussion sounds.
Most modern drum machines are sequencers with a sample playback (rompler) or synthesizer component that specializes in the reproduction of drum timbres. Though features vary from model to model, many modern drum machines can also produce unique sounds, and allow the user to compose unique drum beats.
Like most digital devices, the drum machine has a LED screen for cycling through "patches" or tracks named according to music genre. "Rock" might be one category, with 10 or more track variations called HR-1, HR-2, HR-3, and so on. Each track within the category will differ from the others in some way. One might use the kick drum on an extra beat, while another might include toms or a cymbal ride.
The first drum machine was in 1930–32, the spectacularly innovative and hard to use Rhythmicon was realized by Leon Theremin at the request of Henry Cowell, who wanted an instrument with which to play compositions whose multiple rhythmic patterns, based on the overtone series, were far too hard to perform on existing keyboard instruments. The invention could produce sixteen different rhythms, each associated with a particular pitch, either individually or in any combination, including en masse, if desired. Received with considerable interest when it was publicly introduced in 1932, the Rhythmicon was soon set aside by Cowell and was virtually forgotten for decades. The next generation of rhythm machines played only preprogrammed rhythms such as mambo, tango, or the like. They also have other patterns like bossa nova.
If this description boggles you, having a look at the video demonstration should clear things up.
Well suited for quickly sketching out your musical ideas when on the move, patterns can be created in the sixteen step sequencer, with no limit to the amount of bars your composition requires. Apart from the basic waveforms there is also a secondary oscillator which can be routed to different targets for harmonically enriching your initial sounds. You can shape the basic palette from friendly cheesy 80s trumpets via stuttering robots to totally unlistene-able sonic mayhem. If anything, you can sure annoy people on the bus.
For further improvisation there is a multi-touch keyboard allowing you to play along with the sequencer for quickly testing new ideas. When you're pressed for time, you can save a song in progress and return to it later for finishing your idea, or plainly reliving your initial enthusiasm when creating that bubbly, acid bassline over that funky beat you had a brilliant destination for.
Apart from working from your mobile device, your songs can be exported in WAV format, uploaded to SoundCloud for direct sharing, or you can export your songs as MIDI data so you can continue work on your desktop computer / other hardware devices. You can also record a live performance directly onto your device.
MikroWave is actively being updated, so keep your eyes peeled for notifications to be sure you're getting all the latest features. You may also aid development by leaving suggestions and sharing your ideas on the website.
Just to be clear: MikroWave doesn't rely on samples for sound generation, but actually synthesizes sound. For best performance your device should run Jelly Bean (Android 4.2) though it should run fine on any recent device.
Read / write from external storage / SD card. This is used for exporting your songs as audio / MIDI and for recording audio output.
Internet access. Used for both accessing the online manual and for direct uploading of your material to SoundCloud.
When in doubt, MikroWave is also available as a FREE version, note that saving of songs is disabled in this version.
