NEW HERE. Couple Questions.
Like I mentioned in the title, I'm new here and really new to the beat making game lol. Life long music lover and artist to the core. I paint, draw, a little photography, amateur video editor. All around creativity is my drug.
Aaaany ways, to my point. I recently downloaded the iMPC basic on my ipad, (when I was a teen I dreamed of being a music producer) and learned a a little on how to use it. Well enough for me to want to download the Pro2 so I could try my hand at creating a whole entire beat. That is till I saw a video on youtube made by a fav producer of mine by the name of Henny The Business. He has a video using the Beatmaker3 and MAN I FELL IN LOVE!!! Him creating a beat on the spot, the breakdown and all pretty much sold me, watching him layer and sample sounds and moving, cutting, pasting awwwwww man I am hooked!!!
Now my question(s), is there a way to bring in a song from itunes or one of my folders (I have tons of music I would love to sample) into Beatmaker3? I kinda know how to bring a sample sound from other apps and such but I haven't been able to find any info or videos on how to bring over a whole song so I can cut and chop parts of it. iMAC comes with the turn table, click the load button and then my itunes list pops up. Love how easy that is and honestly I kinda feel a little cool messing with it hahah
One video I found shows me the Beatmakers3 sampler and how to use it, I see where it says "drag and drop here" but I think you can only drag whats in your library already correct?
I haven't found any videos of someone grabbing a full song and importing it to Beatmaker then sampling it. Is it because you have to use another app? Can you even do that? Any chance it comes with its own turntable lol? I would love to be able to upload a song, new or old and just go insane cutting and chopping sounds. Or lets say I have a song that has a really nice guitar lick, I would love to just bring the whole song over and into the BM sampler, cut out the lick then loop it. Then go back in to the same song and sample more sounds to use either later or in the same beat I'm trying to create.
Sorry for the long story, I want to be as clear as I can be so when you read my question you will know exactly what feature/app to look for and use.
