Ken takes a classic sample (used in Jay Z’s "Roc Boys") and shows you how to isolate the horns only and remove the drums and bass, or isolate the bassline only, snares only, etc... as well as layer different pieces of the sample together to create new sounds and moods.
Ken Lewis then takes you through three more samples showing how to take boring straight ahead drum loops and add energy and presence to them using EQ, compression, filtering, M/S Equalization, and phase inversion. He breaks down "A Minus B" listening and how it can transform your sample sources into completely new sounds.
Ken presents everything step by step in this 1 hour and 18 minute lesson that includes the video as well as a full Pro Tools session and consolidated audio stems for use with any DAW. See all of Ken's plugin settings both on screen and in the included session, then practice your own sample transformations on your DAW and see what new combinations and techniques you come up with.
This lesson will definitely take your sample game to the next level. Watch the five minute introduction video and you'll be convinced.
