Serato Sample 2.0 is the latest version of Serato’s creatively versatile sampler instrument plug-in for your DAW.
Take control of samples in a completely new way with the Serato Stems feature, giving you the ability to isolate and work with individual sections of a mixed audio track.
Serato Sample 2.0
Although Sample 2.0 has been designed primarily with Hip-Hop, Pop, and Dance music production workflows in mind, the depth of features makes it possible to use it as a sound design tool as well.
So you can create unique granular synthesis instruments through pitching and re-triggering, or even manipulate songs used in motion pictures to balance elements within the mix of a particular scene.
That being said, the beauty of Sample 2.0 as an instrument lies in its simplicity. From controller assignments to navigating the different modes of operation, it’s easy enough for a beginner and very CPU-friendly too.
Use polyphonic mode to isolate different drum hits and one-shots with the cue points you assign to each trigger. Meanwhile, by using monophonic and keyboard modes, you have the power to focus on creating hooks and melodies with a single sample.
Being able to isolate any combination of the vocals, melody, bassline, and drums of a sample really does open up possibilities, especially as copyright laws have become increasingly tight.
With this technology, you can easily sample elements of your favourite Marvin Gaye record and creatively flip them in ways that become completely unrecognizable to his legal team.
Overall, Sample 2.0 is a deceptively deep sampling tool built for the fluidity of modern music production workflows. Both the pitch and audio separation engines are so clean that you’re bound to have fun with it, regardless of which style of music you’re into.
