Favoriting November 10, 2019: You Can Sample: Wave Two

Over the past three decades I have been sampling for music projects. From recording to cassettes... to saving on floppy to zips... to organizing on the hard drive. Today we are going to hear those samples back-to-back for 4 hours.

Thousands of files have been sourced for future 'You Can Sample' shows. This is the second installment of 3,200 sounds.

Some quick notes on the process of collecting samples:
- In Windows 10, searched all sample folders for *.wav
- Used a tiny program, 'Bulk Rename Utility' to randomize the order of files and apply a number prefix (00000)
- Selected blocks of files in the folder (in 4 hour sets for future shows)
- Open Appended Files in Adobe Audition (and took a screenshot that appears below)
- Used another tiny program, 'JR Directory Printer' to print the directory contents of the files in the folder to a text file.

I'm listening to this for the first time today, live with you on the show! It's all random and I'm sure we will hear some funny bits colliding with one another.

You Can Sample (previous shows):
- Wave One : August 25, 2019

So, for reasons that are totally sane and logical, I actually have the file for the last "You Can Sample" on my phone.
  11/7 1:45pm
NowhereBoy91:

I played the show on the pop-up player and used Audacity to record the audio from my computer while I was at work. One big 4 hour track.

NowhereBoy91:

I don't really know how to brag about this to you, Otis, as I haven't been able to easily find you on social media I don't want the clout, I just wanted to let you know that someone's listening, god damn it!

So yeah. Not sure if I'll be able to catch this week's epsiode, as I'll be playing Dungeons and Dragons. Regardless, I hope it goes well and I hope to listen to it in the later times.

Does anybody remember how to stop the fire that happens two hours after this show? I recall that I wrote it down in my notebook, but I left that in 2028 after the ziggernauts devoured DC.

Unsure ParUbi as I have not made it to 2119 but I have visited 2123 where the fire was documented a mere 4 years earlier. I believe sample 03994 played backwards provide a clear answer and sample 05036 a path to resolution.

Listening to this now, I think... wow, so this is where a significant portion of my life went. Ha!
  2:28pm
Martinibomb:

Processing sound thru old samplers for the sound especially an old s900/950 and then recording that back into the DAW is the way to go. Speed up the pitch when you sample and then slow it down for that extra grit the way they used to do it. Also saves memory cool trick

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:33pm
Otis Fodder:

Most samples here are from 1998-on all WAV files (low-bit to hi) but some are from various ways of archiving before. For a while I saved on VHS tapes in the mid-90s and DAT tapes. Cassettes for sure. My samplers from late 80s to mid-90s were a Roland S-10, Ensoniq EPS and upgraded to a EPS-16 after.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:35pm

It's also a little inspiring listening to it all now. Haven't made a proper track in over 2 years, been on a nice break. Feeling like doing stuff now though. That's fun.

Martinibomb:

@Fab hah yeh similar here... except I used an Amiga up until 1999 w/ that S900. I still used the s900 for processing sound even when I moved to Acid around the same time u did. You can run stuff thru it live and use the filter it's a pretty great machine
  2:51pm
Martinibomb:

My order of programs.. heh goes.. Octatrack/Amiga to Bars&Pipes/Amiga to Acid to Protools to Ableton and moving toward Reaper. However, iPad apps are super amazing today. I use Beatmaker 3 & Korg Gadget. I typically have that plugged into my Akai MPC1000 with JJOS, EMU ESI-4000 (it has super rad digital filters) and Roland Sp404-SX.

AND I cannot say enough nice things about the Roland Sp404-Sx sampler. That line of samplers I used to think was the dumbest thing ever.. boy was I wrong. I probably use it more than anything else I've ever used. YES it sounds terrible! But, it's a good terrible.

@Otis can you get Canadian grants? Have you ever looked into that? They spend way more on artists up there than they do here in the States. I think Coover BC spends like 22mil on Art and Portland only spends like 2mil (similar size cities)

Coover BC is a little bigger than Portland but you know what I mean
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm

I can as a resident within Canada. Have not had a project in mind to apply for one as of yet, but have thought about it as several friends and an archive I work with here is all about grants. Times have changed from 15+ years ago to now for bands and grants (I have heard) but still there are many opportunities here for artists. It's complicated however as with anywhere.

Most recent set of me is the Halloween fill-in for Abstract Science (another show). It doesn't have me talking on it though, i pre-recorded that mix and just posted it that way.

@John - Me too, learned about so much from WFMU over the past 20 years of listening. First was able to listen on the west coast via stream in 1999. Before I only had ordered stuff through the Catalog of Curiosities. First hearing Incorrect Music was a revelation for me, akin to picking up the RE/Search ISM books in the mid-90s.
