The EXS24 is the workhorse sampler that sits at the base of many modern musical compositions. With it's ability to stream digital samples directly off your computer's hard drive, the EXS24 is an extremely powerful studio tool.
In this tutorial program, David Dvorin demonstrates essential ESX24 sampling skills including how to build your own custom EXS24 instruments. In fact, by the end of this tutorial you'll be able to confidently create realistic multi-sample instruments using zone and velocity mapping.
You'll also learn how to accurately trim and loop samples, how to simulate vibrato and use the EXS24's filter section to add realism, and how to import many popular sample libraries including Akai sample CDs and Giga Sampler libraries.
This tutorial provides you with the quick-way into Logic's ESX24 Sampler. If you're looking to to get the most out of the EXS24, this tutorial is a perfect jump-start.

Great tutorial, nothing to question about, but an in depth of the use of this instrument for glitch effects would have been interesting, since I've seen many people using it for this purpose. No complains though.

Expected much more in terms of examples and performance. Theory was educating but should have had more hands on practicals to relate the best of the software plugin. A bit disappointing compared to.

I feel like the pacing of this course is strange - almost all of it is great for beginners, but then all of a sudden the last section goes from defining what modulation means (something extremely basic) to all of a sudden talking about LFOs without ever defining them, then almost immediately inserting and combining multiple modulation parameters, envelopes, etc.
