I was inspired by Ipaghost's entry last week, conquering an old sampler (actually it was laguna...be careful uploading and drinking!). I also have an old sampler, a Zoom SampleTrak ST-224 - a standalone sampler from 1999. I've had this thing for years, and mostly just used it to chop up samples. It has limited memory and it's lo-fi sample rate give samples a gritty, interesting quality. (I've used it to chop samples, then exported those samples to computer and loaded them onto LSDJ, surely one of the most asinine workflows possible.)
So this track isn't very exciting, but it is 100% created on the SampleTrak. I sampled some 70s Japanese jazz straight from YouTube, because I'm all about quality. I sampled some of my own guitar playing and some Gameboy for the bass. This was an interesting process. You can only use one effect at a time on the SampleTrack, so if you want more than one, you have to add the effect and resample. The high pitch-bendy sound toward the end took about 4 resamples to get.
The SampleTrak's effects section is surprisingly musical--you can sync most of them to the BPM for some fun stuff. On the whole, I learned a lot about the unit, and I think I'll try to use it more in the future. Thanks, WeeklyBeats.
