This video, via Red Means Recording, takes a look at a old-school technique for making the most of limited memory space on samplers.
While some samplers can now handle nearly unlimited sample sizes, many samplers still have constrained memory and part of the craft of using them is maximizing the available sample time.
“Limited sample memory can be a drag, but there’s a trick that can help.
Resample your samples at higher speed and pitch before importing them, then slow them down in the sampler.
I’ll show you how in this video.”
