Where you get your samples from?
« on: April 15, 2009, 09:42:11 »

Lo all,

From one source Ive heard that getting your samples from real synths is a hell of a job. You would have to know someone with a synth in the first place. Other than that where do you get your samples from and how do you sample/import them to your pc?

Hello Dude,

why not try some free Software-Synths and sample the Sounds from them? :)

The other Option, that comes to my mind, is, to search the Internet for free Sounds in WAV format ^^ .

Or: for Chiptune-like Samples, you can use the Synthesis-Function in Milky, or simply draw your own ones in the Sampleeditor.

Greetings,
Ingo

PS: i have a Yamaha CS1x Keyboard and a Waldorf MicroQ Racksynth - so .. if you need a special Sound, tell me, and i'll see what i can do. I'm not a good Soundprogrammer, but some basic Sounds i can create too, with a bit of experimenting ;)

Someone told us here in the Board, that you can use the Demo Version of FruityStudio and it's Ability to use VST Instruments (and it's basic Set of Synths) for creating Sounds, too. The Wav-Output to Disk is enabled in FruityStudio Demo as far as i know, so you can trigger the Notes, that you want to sample, in the Pianoroll and then record the pattern or "song" to wav file. After that, you can use a free Sample Editor to cut the individual Notes out and save them in seperate wav files; import them into Milky Sample Editor and rock on :D .

I've attached a simple and old example of mine into this post.

For soft synths, I used to use FL Studio, but have been using Modplug for VST sampling.  I picked up an issue of CM Magazine, which I must say, has a quite impressive sample library (it didn't hurt that one of their VSTs on the DVD had samples).

Also, check out The Freesound Project for a variety of free samples.

^dankie! =>

this one's a little less bloated than ZynAdd....

amSynth -
http://amsynthe.sourceforge.net/amSynth/

wavetool - is a small freeware (windoze95 or so) i remember having used i alot in the past... note the SIG-GEN.exe is a chipsample creator...
http://www.sonicspot.com/wavetools/wavetools.html
http://www.sonicspot.com/wavetools/wavetool.zip

goattracker is also a very nice sample creator for c64 sounds..

.....

hey, don't use premade samples.. if you take the process of sample creation away from tracking what will tracking than be to you! djing?
get yourself a pack of tr-x0x standard samples and start learing how to make your own shit inna synthi!!

Thanks for the replies dudes. Im not motivated to create anything myself from scratch. The way I did it is download sample packs and chop them up to my liking. So far Ive come up with zero patterns or samples. Still, I love this tracker thing :D
