Even if you can't play an instrument, if you have a lot of sound sources, anyone can create music depending on your ideas, and you can capture and restructure any good phrases or cool vocals anyway you like. For example, one high-quality drum phrase recorded by a professional engineer can be divided into kicks, snares, hi-hats separated sections to create beats that cannot be reproduced by human power, or loop out a few bars. This is known as breakbeat, and the music of the "HIP HOP" genre has grown, and the benefits of these samplers are significant.
Although the sampler was born from a hardware device, the hardware sampler can be played like an instrument (sampler with a pad). Depending on the idea, the sampler itself transforms into a drum machine, a synthesizer, or vocals. In addition, the rough sound quality particular to the old models is popular, and many will choose to take the low specs of the older machines. Typical hardware samplers include AKAI's MPC series, Roland MC series, SP series, etc. Since the functions of not only the sampler but also the sequencer are enhanced, it is possible to carry out complete production with one unit.
With the evolution of computers, editing can be performed quickly on a large screen on software, visually, and with the high processing power of a PC. When working with visuals such as waveform editing, software sometimes outperforms hardware for ease of use. You can drag and drop the digital sound source imported into the PC into the sampler, easily replace it, and you can work without stress. In addition, there is a lot of software that specializes in each instrument recently available, and a lot of software that contains sound sources from the start at the installation stage have also been released. Recently, products that can apply effects to each sample have also been released, and the world of software samplers is evolving more and more.
