Make Elektron's RYTM Drum Machine Unique By Importing Your Own Samples

It's not a conventional sampler, but this video shows you how to import and use any samples from your own collection to use as part of your kits and beats in RYTM.  

Elektron's RYTM is a powerful drum machine that uses a hybrid of analog and digital technology to produce some fearsome beats. In this short video from the course Elektron 106: RYTM: Perform and Produce, expert producer Thavius Beck explains how to use your own samples inside RYTM, bringing a whole new dimension to audio creation and manipulation. 

As well as one-shot samples you can bring in whole loops, setting start and end points, use vocals, sound effects and more to create beats and patterns that are more complex than you could achieve using only regular kits. You'll see how to use Elektron's special software tool to import samples and use them as the basis of your beats, with Thavius demonstrating the import of various different kinds of samples.
