From 6th February to 4th April 2020, members of Novation’s Sound Collective community can scratch that MPC-style sampling itch by downloading digital DJ software specialist Serato’s Sample LE for free, and take advantage of a 30% discount on the full Sample.
Powered by Serato’s legendary Pitch ’n’ Time algorithm, Sample LE is a performance-orientated plug-in that makes light work of slicing, rearranging and manipulating samples in real time. Adjust the key and tempo of your imported loop or full track, then manually or automatically set up to eight cue points within it for triggering via your MIDI or QWERTY keyboard, or map a single cue point up and down the keyboard for monophonic or polyphonic pitched play.
Set the length of each cue and switch between one-shot and gated playback; use the Attack and Release parameters to shape cue timing and dynamics; and dial in up to two octaves of pitchshift and +300/-75% timestretch. The creative possibilites are endless: extract a drum kit from a full track by assigning cues to the kick, snare and hi-hat hits within it; map a single bass note across the keyboard and play new basslines with it; chop up a vocal for custom edits; or rearrange a loop in its entirety, live. Sample LE’s quick, easy workflow brings the spirit of old-school groovebox-style sampling to the modern DAW, and with Pitch ’n’ Time under the hood, its timestretching and pitchshifting quality is second to none.
Sound Collective members can download Serato Sample LE from their Novation account between 6th February and 2nd April 2020, and claim a 30% discount on the full Sample, which adds 24 more cue pads, three additional Autoset modes, Velocity toggling, filtering, cue Reverse and volume control, multiple outputs and unrestricted BPM adjustment.
