Slice & Chop Samples [Beginner Tutorial Video]

edited January 2009 in General
Hi everyone,

I'm new to this forum and I'd like to share with you a tutorial video (<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=" m -->) on how to Slice and Chop Samples with Intua Beatmaker. (There will be more to come - read below)

Over at SampleSimple, a music production website for sampling, we've just launched our first ever Mobile Music Production Sessions heavily inspired by the Intua Beatmaker app.

Feel free to check out SampleSimple as we'll be adding more content about the Beatmaker app. (<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://samplesimple.com">http://samplesimple.com</a><!-- m -->)

I'll also be on these forums to help anyone with handling samples within Beatmaker.

Thanks.

    I didn't catch the explanation on chopping....Although you did a decent job on the wave editor you could have been a little more thorough on the chop feature. <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D -->

    Thanks for the feedback Upright,

    I'll be releasing more of these with more in-depth tutorials.

    Thanks for checking it out.

    Chopping is real easy. Basically in the "sample" menu you'll touch "select" so you can pick the pads you want the "chops" to be on. Generally picking 4 or 8 pads is good because samples are mostly in 4/4 timing. Once you pick the number of pads and location you want them to be chopped you'll touch the "chop" button in the sample menu. Once here navigate to the file you want to chop, highlight it, then touch "load". If you want to edit/fine tune the samples further you can go ahead and follow the tutorial SS provided for the wav editor.
    There's not much need for a video to do this. Just point people in the direction of the manual. RTFM people! <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://intua.net/downloads/BeatMaker_UserManual_131.pdf">http://intua.net/downloads/BeatMaker_UserManual_131.pdf</a><!-- m --> *read the f*$@in manual!
    FYI: The sample menu can be found in the pads section.

    Yeah, chopping is rather simple.....Once you read the manual or play around with it for a while. I was just suggesting that since SS-beats vid says "Slice and Chop" in the title, he should have discussed how to chop samples. I think the vid (while done well) would have been more appropriately named "using the wave editor in Beatmaker". <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D -->

    Hey thanks guys, for the feedback.

    The term chopping and slicing samples is rather broad.

    We define it as being able to fine-tune / editing slice points as shown in the videos.

    We direct all of our subscribers and visitors on the SampleSimple.com website to read the manual as shown here:

    Thanks again.

    I love this app!!!!
