Hey there guys Im New to producing I'm really trying to get better at creating beats (instrumentals) my main goal though is learning how to Sample. How do people sample something lets say like from the 50's that is pretty much really hard to find some sheet music for. I'm trying to replay what ever it is that they played. Also for example the producer Pretty Lights when he samples a vocal from a song how does he take out all the instruments from the original and just keep the vocals. also when people sample instead of just chopping up the original piece of audio and just looping it. i rather replay it myself so that way i don't have leakage from other instruments. and just overall have better control of the sonic space in my mix. If you guys have any tips or techniques on sampling it would be greatly appreciated. by the way I'm using native instruments maschine and protools. if you guys know anything on logic its good too but I'm not that familiar with it so i would much rather prefer maschine or protools. THAANNNNKKKKSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
