If you’ve coppied a chunk of sample… and select a new instrument while the sampler is open, you should be able to paste directly into the first sample of the new instrument… if not, then you did not copy properly
My advice would be to stop worrying how Vsnares does the stuff he does and get your own style, and go through your own driven devlopment. Vsnares is not the gatekeeper to the ‘holiest of editing’, and I really think he doesn’t give a hoot about which sequencer he’s using: as long as the artist can get the intention down. That’s why he’s sucessful -he’s an expressive artist.
I know if I were a sucessful serious artist (like he in that degree) I’m not going to answer some n00bs (relatively, from point of view) question about how to do x with y. I’d only be interested if you asked me ‘WHY did you write that unique piece of music?’. Intension not technique is what matters. And you cannot adopt another’s technique because it is idiosyncratic. Therefore you can only ask questions of intentionality to avoid wasting your energy.
Of course, I could be completly wrong? But put yourself in his shoes?
Agreed, though one simple change might help in exploring “creative use of samples” terrain, which I think is one of the things that Snares is admired for, and I learnt from that video:
Double BPM at a speed of 3 coupled with extensive use of 09XX sample offset. It’s a simple change, but at that speed and number of ticks per row the sample “chunks” that you can call upon are sufficiently small and moving past at sufficient speed to get some attractive sounds.
one foot off-topic: i remember searching the forum users because i was wondering if Mr Funk had a user here, and after some searching i couldn’t discover it, so i figured he doesn’t, and made some assumptions as to the reasons of this (some of which well explained by mr dollin above), only to now see him posting in this thread. why didn’t i search for ‘snares’?
