When we think of sound design, we usually think of working with synthesizers, but we can use samples too! In this workshop we will focus on making an entire drum kit from one sample, utilizing fun techniques with Sampler, Corpus, Saturator, and other effects. I want to empower Ableton users to make their own unique sounds using field recordings. We will learn how to incorporate the soundtrack of our lives into our own productions!
