Creative Talk - Setting up a Professional Project Studio
Hardware & Software Samplers (Part 5)
top

The last few issues we went over the computer/sound card basics, midi controllers, keyboards, VST Instruments, Synths & Audio Sequencing programs and Studio Monitors and Headphones. This week we’ll be covering Hardware & Software Samplers

Sampling has been around for a very, very long time and the meaning has changed many times over since its inception. Samplers not only give you the ability to take any random sound and incorporate it into your production, they also give the ability to create your own detailed sounds by layering, filtering, adding effects, compression, etc.
Before technologies many advancements, ‘hardware’ versions of samplers were only available. These samplers were TINY ‘musical computers’ used to record audio – drums, instrumentation, portions of a song, vocals, etc. These samplers could be very difficult to use and had limited storage and memory.

Fortunately, many limitations of sampling have been overcome. However, there are still limitations depending on which type of sampler you choose to use. Here are some pros & cons to research before making a decision to go with a hardware or software sampler.

1.       Hardware Samplers: Hardware samplers are great for doing all the sampling and sequencing in one box. Basically, you have a musically oriented machine – no personal computers, no getting distracted, no other interfaces needed - just record and go.  The only cons are that they carry MUCH less memory and storage capabilities than a software sampler. Sound design can be a tad more detailed or complicated depending on how you work. However, if you are a hands on producer, don’t like computers much and want to focus on production only, the hardware sampler can be a great addition to your studio. 

Here is more info & pricing on our Recommended Hardware Samplers:
Akai MPC 1000, Akai MPC 2500, Akai MPC 4000, Roland MV 8800

2.       Software Samplers: A software sampler is as powerful as the computer you use. It has HUGE memory and storage capabilities and with just a basic computer setup it will be 10 or more times more powerful than a hardware sampler. Software samplers are great for ‘technology tweakers'. However, they can be less musical with unlimited tweaking possibilities. Some can be used as standalone but either way you’ll end up needing an audio sequencer to run it for best results. If you love to get into detailed sound design and programming with unlimited capabilities and ‘tweaking’, then the software sampler will be a great addition to your studio.

Here is more info & pricing on our Recommended Software Samplers:
Native Instruments Kontakt, Native Instruments Battery, Steinberg Halion, Logic Pro EXS 24

In summary, using a hardware/software sampler that works best for you can bring forth creative new production styles, sound design, and creative workflow. By knowing if you are a tweaker/sound designer or if you want to just make music with some sound design flexibility will help in the choice between using a hardware or software sampler. As always, make sure to do the research before investing.

gives way for an aggressive viciouse synth pad.  Women.  Don't let the cute smile and soft booty fool you.
