Breakbeat #1 - Amen Brother - The Winstons
here's a thread to talk about one of our favorite breaks, and things related to it.
I've put together a bank with the sample sliced in BM3, saved to aif (to preserve slices), and chopped up across 32 pads. each pad has two layers. layer one has timestretch turned on, layer two has timestretch turned off, and each set of layer's gain is mapped to a macro (from -inf to 0db) to switching between (stretched on macro 2, unstretched on macro 3), depending on the bpm or feel you prefer. all pad layers have tune mapped to macro 1, and fine tune to macro 5. there's some reverb on the bank, some sv filters, and an eq (none of which really need to be there, nothing special going on with them). I've included a few patterns which might be helpful to some. the straight chopped pattern could be quantized and split between the first and second parts of the break. pad 33 has the full sample aif, for offset key sampling or whatever use. I've also added some fun pads for a stopped record, spinback, and super stretched hits (300 BPM is the max), as well as a ghost snare hit. All of this stuff has been chopped and modulated in BM3, so perhaps you'll find some inspiration here too.
I'd love it if anyone had any input or improvements to make to it.
