Sampling is a computer music mainstay (whether music lawyers like it or not). If you're gonna call yourself a producer, you'll need to know exactly how to sample.
In the first video, JT shows you how to find good samples quick and how to get them in Logic Pro X. Oh yeah... and DO NOT underestimate his dab game.
In episode 2, learn how to chop a drum break, find its tempo and loop it perfectly!
Wanna make a trap beat like Future's "Mask Off", but have no clue how to loop a flute loop like Metro Boomin? You're in luck: JT has just the tricks for you!
Loops are cool. But what is even cooler is to "chop" these loops in multiple fragments and rearrange them in creative ways, using your MIDI controller or trusted pad controller.
