Senor Al's Magic Band 0ne
Senor Al’s Magic Band Logic Sampler Instrument No.1 !!
This logic sampler instrument is not only a Beatmakers Dream - it is a serious piece of software for music makers & producers who want the Livest Sounding Drums, Bass & Guitar.
Included is live bass, live guitar notes & chords, live drums - two drum machines (CR78 & ElectroHarmonix DRM16) - 808 Kicks - Spacedrums - 70’s Synthetone Mono Synth - Rhodes Keyboard - Live drum loops - & multilayered velocity sensitive vocals!
Everyone these days uses the same beats - which is why so much music sounds the same (Boring!!!).
Back in the early days of sampling they had Tiny Samplers - with Teeny Tiny Memories - so you had to think ahead to how you wanted to put your beat together. Most times you’d have to use small parts of a sample to layer over a drum machine - & you’d always make mistakes - ‘cause it was difficult & tricksy - but these mistakes gave the music a new energy - & actually helped to create D&B & a whole bunch of other styles of music!
To get yourself started - program a basic beat with either the drum machines or live kit - then drop drum loop samples in random places - cut the samples down to 1/4 their length by shortening the midi notes - Boom! Random rhythms you could Never program! - or even think of!! & That’s before you start adding Any of the musical elements!!!
Go nuts slicing up any of the samples & see what happens …. music making is supposed to be fresh & fun. The vocals are especially useful & sound excellent chopped into tiny bits.
There are 3 sampler settings - the main instrument is:
Senor Al Magic Band 0ne. (we used this setting to make the video music).
Setting 2 is: Senor Al Magic Band TwoFilter - & has LFO triggered filtering - tweak a few knobs & see what Xtra funkiness can be achieved once you’ve written some beats.
Setting 3: Senor Al Magic Band Multi0utputs - is a Multi out instrument for those of you that need more control of your audio.
