Sound Design With Vocal Samples & Maschine

In this video tutorial, Dubspot Instructor Matt Cellitti offers his tips for transforming and shaping ordinary sounds with Native Instruments Maschine.

Here’s what he has to say about the tutorial:

Using random audio samples and turning them into sampled instruments is nothing new in electronic music. People have been using samplers and software for many, many years to create truly unique instruments.

The interesting thing I show in this video is how easy it is to do this on Maschine, while never having to use the mouse to do any editing. It is a refreshing approach that allows for more instantaneous and creative tweaking of sampled material. Maschine is so powerful as both a software and hardware that you can quickly find yourself mangling your audio using the built in sampler functions to create these personalized instruments.

Take this idea to the next level by using your smartphone to capture “found sounds” out in your environment, bring them into Maschine, and voila! – you now have completely original musical instruments to give your sound a distinctive style that nobody else will have.
