It may seem like a dumb question, but people are dead serious when they ask, "What does 'Flip a sample' mean?" It's actually a good question that goes back to sampling, making beats with samples or using samples in beats.
I made this FREE video on sample flipping to answer the question, "What does FLIP A SAMPLE mean?"
My Sample Flip Beats and video tutorials on How to Flip a Sample and Making Sample Flip Beats go into more detail about sample flipping, sample chopping and sample slicing. These videos demonstrate and explain the process I use when I flip a sample.
In short, "flip a sample" means to take a sample and make a beat or song using the sample in a creative way. "Sample flipping" is another phrase that means the same thing. It's all sampling (music sampling), but the phrases used to describe what is done in sampling are continually evolving.
Words like "chopping" and "slicing" and "flipping" are being used to describe what a beat maker or producer is doing to a sample. Chopping and slicing refer more to how a sample is further cut into smaller pieces ("chops" or"slices"), but it is not uncommon to hear someone use "chopping" a sample or "slicing" a sample to mean the same thing as "flipping" a sample or sample flipping.
Technically, this word substitution is incorrect because there is a difference between actually "flipping" a sample and "chopping" or "slicing" a sample. Remember, chopping and slicing are about how to cut up a sample into pieces for use in a new beat or song. Flipping is about the actual use of the sample or sample "slices/chops" in a new beat or song.
After you have made your sample selections and sliced those selections into smaller pieces (chops), you can experiment with many different ways to flip those sample slices. There are no rules to flipping samples, so the way you choose to flip samples in your beats is fine, as long as the final beat you create sounds the way you want it. The more you practice sample flipping, the better you will get and you will eventually develop your own personal stype when it comes to flipping samples. The important thing is to be creative and keep pushing yourself to get better. The possibilities are endless when it comes to flipping samples and making sample flip beats.
