More About the course, 10 Killer Simpler Sampler Tips

Let’s face it… a sampler is, well, a sampler. It plays back samples! No big deal. It’s how you manipulate those samples, either with animation or in real time that makes samplers interesting. And that’s the power of the new Simpler. It has a lot more subtlety and control.

To really understand the power of the new Simpler Sampler, you’ve got to see how a performance artist, like our awesome Thavius Beck, uses it! And that's exactly what he does in this 10 Killer Tips course: He shows it in action!

So join Thavius as he shows you his favorite Killer Simpler Sampler Tips. Feel free to use them and abuse them! Because we know that once you hear them, you’ll be incorporating them into your next project or live set! And the best part is… you don’t have to tell anybody where you got them!
