Sampling video tutorials

Postby giwro » Mon May 27, 2019 1:32 pm

So, I’ve been thinking about documenting the sampling process - doing some videos that show the process (at least the way I do it).

I’ve lost track of the times I’ve given advice to would-be samplers (which I’m glad to do) and think maybe it would be a good idea to preserve the techniques I’ve learned after 15 years at this (yes, Virginia, I released the venerable FBR set way back in 2004, about this time of year!)

Is there any interest in such a thing?

Yes, and I realize making such a tutorial takes much effort.

I would love to learn more about your experiences. Even though sometimes tiresome it is always a good idea to document your work.

I would get the writing done first, then if necessary, fill in the gaps with a video.

I'd certainly be interested - I find the whole process fascinating.

Well then, I’ll have a go at it.

I’ve thought that it really would be good to document - I’ve written some things down, but a lot of it is in my noggin, and I’m runnning out of space :D

The reason I thought about video, is that writing about a lot of this is only sort of helpful... some of what I do you need to see and hear the process before it starts to make sense. I’ve had so many people say “just tell me how”, and then they get lackluster results...

I think one of my reasons also is that I think back to my father, who passed in 1985... he was in the dry-cleaning business, and had been since he was a teenager. Dad could get spots out of clothing that no one else could - he had years of experimentation and experience. Sadly, he didn’t document any of it... so when he passed, much of that knowledge was lost.

I am at the point where I think I’ve finally done this enough that I really grasp the concepts quite well... and the results I’m getting are so far superior to what I did 15 years ago, I only wish I had those old recordings and I could re-process them! Now, audio forensics is a bit more documented than dry-cleaning, but the narrow field of organ sample production really is not. We have many producers who have custom-written their own software to do the job... that is just amazing (but then it means each new entity has to reinvent the process)

So, there you have it.

It might be a good idea to gather interested people and perhaps even create a collaborative (dry) sampling project...
