How To Use Apple LOGIC Pro X EXS24 Sampler

In this tutorial, Minneapolis Media Institute Audio & Recording Arts Program Specialist, Steve Yeager, shows how to chop up a vocal sample and load it into the EXS sampler for further manipulation.

After the sample is loaded in the EXS, he’ll also show you how to do some clever programming of the sample with the step input keyboard to create the classic stutter effect.

Great video – thanks!

One thing – when I try to drag my chop into the edit window of the sampler, control doesn’t work as right click – it just gives me a menu of options for the chop.

Wesley Nilsen says:

It doesn’t let me drag the audio file from the project into the sampler. It tells me it’s “loading 0 samples” and does absolutely nothing. What’s going on?

Jason Turner says:

Let’s say I wanted to keep the differently pitched samples, is there a way to keep the time from stretching/shrinking? So all the differently pitched samples take the same amount of time to play?

Daryl Allman says:

Its been ages since ives done it this way so thought id try again.
I can’t seem to hear my sample once I’ve dragged it in. really strange

Alexander Boldin says:

Hello. Making fades on 3:15 will not take an effect on the sample, after it has been loaded into the sampler. You need to do “Bounce in place” in Logic before.

Ares Kalogeropoulos says:

It needs just 5 secs on Reason’s NNXT.
