Ken Lewis teaches Production Sampling Secrets Lesson 1, the first in a series of sampling secrets. This is an absolute "must know" for producers and mixers who work with sampled beats. Beatmakers, this lesson breaks down how to manipulate sounds before, or after, you sample them, finding new and creative ways to isolate specific pieces of a sound to sample. Ken takes a classic sample, used in Jay Z’s  "Roc Boys," and shows you how to isolate the horns only and remove the drums and bass, or isolate the bassline only, snares only, etc. He demonstrates how to layer different pieces of the sample together to create new sounds and moods.Then, Ken takes you through 3 more samples. He shows you how to take boring, straight ahead drum loops and add energy and presence to them using EQ, compression, filtering, M/S Equalization, and phase inversion. Next, he breaks down "A Minus B" listening and how it can transform your sample sources into completely new sounds.Ken presents everything, step by step, in this 1 hour and 18 minute lesson that includes the video as well as a full Pro Tools session and consolidated audio stems for use with any DAW. See all of Ken's plugin settings both on screen and in the included session. Then, practice your own sample transformations on your DAW and see what new combinations and techniques you come up with. This lesson will definitely take your sample game to the next level. Watch the five minute introduction video and you'll be convinced.Running Time:  1 hour 18 minutesSkill Level:  Intermediate / Advanced*** PRO TOOLS 7 through 10 SESSION INCLUDED ****** CONSOLIDATED AUDIO STEMS INCLUDED FOR ANY DAW****
