Can anyone help me please ?

I want to start using samples in Ableton but don't know where to start.

I have run through the live library but there's not much on there.

Can anyone advise what I need to do, I want to obtain drum loops, noises, acappella's, but haven't got a clue what to do or where to get them from ?

I have garage ban which has some useful loops but I don't know how to import them into live - can anyone help ?

Any recommended sites for plug ins would be gratefully receieved\

Thanks

Thanks for the response mate

Sorry what I meant was getting hold of new samples - vocals and stuff to then use in live.

I know how to drag the included samples into the track view - if I am misunderstanding you sorry I'm new to this kinda thing !!

search the web. you can also just sample from your mp3 and CD music library, make a loop from a song and run it through a few FX and you can make something completely new from it.

Every issue of Computer Music magazine comes with a DVD full of samples. They are usually themed though, so if they are doing an industrial noise issue it won't help you make house.

nice list!

you know I was after a various sample for months, and I couldn't quite make out what kind of sample it was. It was a reversed percussion sound whatever it was.

Then some dude told me what it was (reversed kick sample) so I reversed a good kick in live and sure enough.... :D

this is great for an attack into different scenes.

:D

You could always make or modify samples aswell, live's effects can make some pretty sketchy results. I recall watching some crazyyyy video with some dude who placed a microphone on the floor and stamped his foot right next to it, recorded that sound and turned it into a kick using processing effects haha

also, vengenace make some fine extensive samples, but unfortunetly these are not free. If you fork out abit of spare cash for some sample cd's, you shouldn't run into a problem. Plenty of high pro samples around. Zero-g make some great samples also, but I guess ideally you are after free samples

:)
