  • Can I play 5 x 1 minute long samples at a time?


    I'm an ambient artist that likes to play up to 5 different samples at a time, usually 1 minute long, and then I mix in different samples, and fade out different samples.

    Some of these samples I would like to be synced, others not necessarily, as they are field recordigns.

    Someone mentioned that this was possible on a blackbox, using a midi controller to fade in and out samples.

    I have a bank of around 80 samples that I would like to store.

    Thanks everyone

      o wow. thanks for sharing this. watching it now.

      Just wondering though, can the blackbox play say 4 long samples at the one time? And then can I fade in another long sample on top of that, and fade out other samples?

      Would I need a midi controller on top of that to fade in and out samples?

      Also, can you only load 16 samples at a time, I would like to have all the samples accessible, and not have to enter a new 'project' or 'screen'.

    sure, and if you want to sync them, get used to counting the total number of beats of your clips instead of the number beats per minute

      OP said he's an ambient artist. not sure how crucial syncing is there. but point taken
