I recently finished updating Sample This! (Third Edition) which has been written in collaboration with Klaus P Rausch. This third edition of Sample This! will be available to buy on November 1. You can check out details of the book at noisesculpture.com/sample-this from where you can also download a copy of the table of contents.
Some of you may not know Klaus, so let me tell you a bit about him.
Klaus is a musician, record producer, and sound designer based in Wiesbaden, Germany. In 1995 he set up Back in Time Records which specializes in sample production. As well as producing its own sample-based library products such as acoustic and electronic instruments ranging from the grand piano, to real orchestral sounds, and ethnic instruments to classic vintage synthesizers. Back in Time Records’ samples have also been used in products from Sonic Reality, LinPlug, Emagic, Image Line, and more.
He is also a highly talented keyboard player and one half of Milo’s Craving (he’s the half without red hair). If you haven’t heard Milo’s Craving, you can check out their website here. If you want to listen to some of their music, then check out their MySpace page. I suggest you start by listening to Come Out.
