How To Sample With an iPad
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Hello everyone! Dj Puzzle here as your guide and today I’d like to show you the basics of sampling with an iPad. This video is for those just starting out, those with very little knowledge of sampling on an iPad. I decided to use Beatmaker 3 because it’s one of the best sample sequencers for iOS in my opinion. We won’t dive deep into advanced sampling in this video perhaps I’ll publishing another one for that. I thought it would be fun to sample from a vinyl record for this one! This Polish jazz record from my collection was perfect because it has lots of isolated samples. I could have went on for a lot time grabbing sounds and playing with them but I wanted to keep the video under 25 mins. Perhaps there will be a part 2 in the near future. Let me know! I have a Patreon account and wanted to thank my patrons. I hope you find this video useful and thanks for the support!! 1900 subscribers so far whoo hoo!!

Gadget Stockholm Tutorial
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

Hello everyone! JUST RE-UPPED the video and the new download link is below. I’m super stoked about today’s episode (warning this is a long video that covers a lot) because we get to talk about two of my very favorite things Korg Gadget and Propellerheads Rex files! This demonstration will give you a brief history of rex files as well as explain what exactly they are and how you can make them your self. Then we transition into importing my free rex files into Korg Gadget Stockholm and then we close with a walkthrough /demo for Stockholm using some of those same free rex loops. You’ll get a brief Abu Dhabi comparison too so please kick back and watch the whole video.

Free link to rex files so far https://www.dropbox.com/sh/z16mm2wzptfze1q/AADS15CxmJI_vVYf5gvA98CSa?dl=0

Beatmaker 3 Traditional DAW
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

I AM SO STOKED to share the latest BM3 guide I just produced. I think it’s going to blow the app wide open for those who still struggle with the app. Those who come from traditional DAW style work flow. The genre of choice Shoegazer/Space Rock/Post Rock whatever you want to call it was a LOT of fun writing and producing for you in this video. I completed a video I’ve had in my mind for about seven days. The goal is to continue with keeping things simple and down to earth so that I could help those who struggle with Beatmaker 3. I want to help you see it as a traditional DAW with bonus other features such as a wicked sampler, clip launching, and automation versus the other way around.
