As we begin our series on Hip-Hop Production with Ableton Live, no topic seems better suited to tackle than sampling. In this course we'll cover all the core aspects of sampling in Ableton Live to make hip-hop. Students will learn to warp and loop drum breaks, slice drum breaks to drum racks, warp and loop melodic samples and melodic chopping. We'll also cover resampling yourself, so you can experiment further. By the end, you'll put together a beat using nothing but samples, and have a whole new tool-set to reference as a producer.
