Learn to program the top software samplers and editing programs.

Take the mystery out of creating sampled instruments with this one-of-a-kind resource that is dedicated to guiding you through the recording and programming of your own playable sampled instruments. USING SOFTWARE SAMPLERS: SKILL PACK uses popular sample playback and digital audio editing programs to outline the complete sampled instrument creation workflow, beginning with the recording.

Includes tutorials for Native Instruments Kontakt, EastWest Play Pro, Digidesign/Avid Structure, Apple Logic Pro, Digidesign/Avid Pro Tools, Redmatica Keymap, Steinberg Cubase and Wavelab, MOTU Digital Performer, and BIAS Peak.
