Creating complex, multi-layered sampler instruments can be a real time-consuming chore that eats up hours of valuable production time. Thankfully, Redmatica software has brought us Keymap.
Keymap is an incredible production tool that makes it easy to create multi-sampled instruments. More than just a simple patch editor, Keymap lets you edit sample duration, loop points, and fades to create realistic sampled sounds. There's also a host of time-saving automatic sample mapping features called magic pads that make it a breeze to set-up multi-zone sample patches. And if that's not enough, the icing on the Keymap cake is it's amazing Harmonic Re-Synthesis tools that can be used to pitch correct off-tune vocals or create dramatic and unique effects for your sampled sounds.
All of the topics above, and many more, are explored in detail in this tutorial. Along the way, you'll learn some valuable remix tips & other sampling tricks you can incorporate into your daily production workflow. For a full list of this tutorials contents, see the Table of Contents below.
A great tutorial !!! I mainly use ESX24 into Logic 8 to produce my minimal techno tracks. Redmatica Keymap is a powerfull tool to create my own instruments. Now, I can edit my samples in only one software and transform them in one click in an instrument ready to use in Logic.

yeah, i purchased the Redmatica Keymap 101: in the middle of the night one evening and thoroughly enjoyed the whole video. Bill Burgess is off the chain he had me rolling though the whole video, i find him very to the point and highly informative and a joy to listen to. Although i having purchase "Redmatica Keymap" i got this tutorial out of curiosity and enjoy the whole thing in one setting. Bill has a way with words that breaks the monotony of just listening to just the tutorial he add emphasis with flare and to point review. Thanks for having him do this one it kept me up.
