Understanding MIDI/Samplers/Sampling Tutorial213
Get BOTH titles..."Understanding MIDI" and "Understanding Samplers and Sampling" on one DVD.
MIDI has revolutionized the way the world makes music; it gives musicians more creative control than ever before. But there's a catch: you need to know how to use it! In this easy-to-understand and thorough video, David Wills gives you both the basic information and the advanced tips you need to use MIDI confidently and effectively in your home studio.
Sampling technology has brought the world of high-quality sounds within the reach of any musician or studio owner. Having access to a $50,000 grand piano or a barrage of rare ethnic instruments on a disk has forever changed the rules about who can and cannot afford to have the most up-to-date sounds. Understanding Samplers and Sampling will teach you the ins and outs of sampling, and familiarize you with the how and why of what makes a great sample.
David's video is the best I've seen ... It's clear and concise, and essential viewing for anybody wanting to get started in MIDI. - Thomas Dolby, recording artist and electronic music pioneer
PLEASE NOTE! This DVD contains Tutorials that were shot more than a decade ago, so the hairstyle may give you an idea of the vintage;) However...the substance of the tutorials are still as valid as when they were first discussed. We still sell dozens of this title every month to customers who appreciate the content. Because we could consider these titles being "classics", we bundle them together in a single DVD.
