sampling, samplers and app recommendations
Hi all you fabulous ABers. I'm calling on you for your expertise and advice.
My long story - I've never been into sampling, well not since the 80s and a pal had one of those Casio keyboards with the tiny keys. Alot of fun with the burps and various bodily noises. We used it in a group for various "color".
Fast forward to the present day. I acquired an Ensoniq Mirage in a trade. Needed lotsa work. I almost trashed it and offered it up for trade. Finally decided to have it fixed once I found the guy to do it, somewhat locally. My guy did a marvelous job and got it going. Yesterday was my first chance to really get into it and explore some of the preset disks that I acquired online.
In a word the thing is glorious. I love it. It is haunting, spooky, funny, odd, gritty (overused word) .
Well, it crapped out on me after about 3 hours and it needs to go back for repair. I suspect the power supply this time. Crestfallen, yet determined to have it fixed because it has THAT sound.
Now, I'm pretty much stoked and psyched on exploring sampling. So, naturally I look to ios and you guys and gals to educate me to the apps that I need. I could just wait to have my Mirage fixed but I want to see what I've been missing on this platform too.
I'm interested in my own sampling. Though not exclusively. The thing that the Mirage has is low sample rate (8 bit) and a really nice filter. What apps would you all recommend for getting some of that mojo - full well realizing that the Mirage is it's own thing and unless someone has done a full emulation I won't be getting the real deal or THAT sound. But, I'd like to explore more of "the art of noise" if you will.
TLDR - kinjujin discovers sampling. Please to help him.
