Sample Editing Tips & Tricks?

Well, the title says it all really, but to illustrate my meaning, David Earl recently put out an excellent video for you guys on 'Folders' in Logic Pro. During the vid., he's editing a drum track and casually adds in a bunch of stutter and reverse edits. Well, I found that a whole lot more interesting than packing folders, that's for sure. It's not just where & how you slice & dice, but what effects do you throw in, how do you enhance it in the mix, how often to you repeat it etc. etc. Another example; there are a million and one companies out there selling samples, and most of them plug their own stuff by linking in a nice little MP3 file full of attention adding phrases that are full of sample edits. It grabs you, but when you buy, the samples themselves are, of course, vanilla (as they should be). I'd love to hear from you guys, on the best ways to add that kind of sparkle to our compositions. Doing it in Logic Pro would be a real plus for me, but any DAW I guess could cover the same territory. Thanks!Reply
