Used for *A Color Map of the Sun*, as stated by Pretty Lights in this July 1, 2013 *Electronic Musician* interview. > “I used a custom-made [Akai] MPC 2000XL to sequence my modular synth, but for cutting up my vinyl to sample and arrange it, I simply used the ‘Arrangement View’ in [Ableton] Live or Drum Rack; I love Drum Rack! I use other stuff now, like Sampler and all the NI [Native Instruments] stuff and UAD-2 [plug-ins], but for the album I just used good-old-fashioned slicing and warp pins straight in Arrangement mode.”more
I never liked vst's for drums. They dont sound right for me, very dificult to fit in tracks. In th other hand filling the drum rack with samples is wonderful, the one shots never sounds artificial, very controllable, and dont kill my cpu.
