Just Some Hip Hop Sampling

I don’ really do much sampling since I actually play the keys. However I ran into this sweet track from Bobby Lyle called Good Inside (1978) and just HAD to sample it. I just simply recorded the WAV file using Audacity, imported it into Ableton live, found the found and used the “slice to MIDI” function. It mapped everything out to my AKAI MPD – had a lot of fun with it.

      Since my MPD218 is always connected via USB it automatically plays any sound through Ableton live that is on a MIDI track. Very useful when slicing samples.
