Udemy.com – Using Samplers: Make Your Own Realistic Virtual Instruments

A deep dive into all the common elements of instrument creation and sound design using samplers. Whether you are brand new to sampling, or an experienced sound designer, beatmaker or producer, this course will help you to really understand how to construct exactly the sounds you are looking for and make super-realistic sample-based virtual instruments from scratch.
What you’ll learn
• Gain a deep understanding of the fundamentals of sampling.
• Apply your new knowledge by creating unique sounding instruments from samples and recordings.
• Use advanced sampling techniques to create ultra realistic sounding virtual instruments from your own recordings.
• Use envelopes, filters, LFOs and effects to create the ideal sounds for your compositions.
Requirements
No previous experience with sampling is required.
I will be using Logic Pro throughout, with a short introduction to Kontakt at the end, but the concepts learnt will apply to the sample engines found in most DAWs, such as Ableton Live, Cubase, FL Studio, etc.
