Sampler’s overview concludes with a look at the different modulation options, including MIDI assignment, and finally a guide to the Zones areas for sample mapping and selection.
Module 4 – Passing Thru Patch Construction
Some multiple stacked LFO modulation is employed to add life to a bass sample, shifting it’s pitch and timbre and entirely new character in the process.
Module 5 – Rotator Patch Construction
Notch filtering, shaping and some alternative modulation methods are utilised for this next patch, which make it undulate in a dark and menacing way.
Module 6 – Don’t Trust Patch Construction
In this last patch, Seppa shows how to make a shorter stab, with briefer envelopes, which can become part of a multi-sampled patch, where the zones select feature allows switching from one sample to another for complex bassline creation.
