How to use Logic Pro’s Auto Sampler to quickly create new instruments
Turn your monosynth into a deep, luscious pad.
If you’re keen on turning audio files into sampler instruments, the process of mapping audio clips to notes can be rather tedious. Logic Pro’s Auto Sampler does exactly what it says on the tin, automatically creating a sampler instrument from your audio and making the sampling process a breeze. You may want to make your monosynth playable across eight voices, or perhaps you want to bring your marimba into the DAW as a virtual instrument.

Jono shows you the various methods to seamlessly capture and map your audio in Auto Sampler, and explains why this tool is fantastic for all types of producers.
