Question from a subscriber:

How do you add a sample in the akai mpd32?


Response:

Let's see...The samples are actually stored in a device in Reason and the MPD (or Oxygen8) just triggers the sample to play. The two devices I use fr sampled tracks are DRREX and NNXT. You could also use the NN19, but the NNXT is like the upgrade.

I use the DRREX when I want to match the sample tempo to my track (beat matching). This comes in real handy when I just want to loop a sample and match the BPM. I use the NNXT for more creative stuff because it gives me more control of the sample.

You can import a sample as a loop or as "chops/slices" in both devices. In my vids, you can see that I use the MPD alot and I'm triggering the samples in the NNXT.

Taurus - ur stuff is the *ting* man i'm tellin ya. I also learned that your a drummer - me to! When I was a kid I used to play around with the piano/keyboard in the 80's/90's (26yr old now). But I can't read music - I play by ear, just like you. You hit the pads & keys, (i gotta mpd32 to!;) in the same manner as me - it flows. I reckon we can play steel drums - even tho we never have! or maybe you have - i don't know! I'm luvin your youtube flix - keep em comin dood. Peace bruv Andy D, birmingham UK.
