About This Class


Cover all the core aspects of sampling in Ableton Live to make hip-hop. Students will learn to warp and loop drum breaks, slice drum breaks to drum racks, warp and loop melodic samples and melodic chopping. We'll also cover resampling yourself, so you can experiment further. By the end, you'll put together a beat using nothing but samples, and have a whole new tool-set to reference as a producer.

I really enjoyed this class as a beginner's guide to approaching hip hop. Professor SentZ is a really good instructor and I hope he teaches more in future.
Great Class
The class was enjoyable and easy to follow along to. The instructor provided information that could be easily grasped by a novice, and pointers for a seasoned vet. I would highly recommend this class to anyone looking to gain working knowledge of sampling & Ableton. Looking forward to another class when offered.
