Sample This! (Third Edition) is your opportunity to learn about sampling directly from the professionals. This book is for both the established musician who wants to develop a greater understanding of what sampling can do to help them make music, as well as the musician who is taking their first steps in sampling. Sample This! contains hundreds (literally) of tips from professional musicians with years of experience of sampling, sound design, and creating large sample libraries. It is a resource you will want to return to again, and again. In addition, purchasers of the book will also receive TSW-X VST, a sample-based synthesizer (Windows PC (XP) compatible) together with a wide range of sample material from Back in Time Records (after submitting proof of purchase).
