Today, Pioneer DJ has announced the long-awaited v1.5 update for their SP-16 sampler. The new feature finally brings live sampling to the powerful machine, allowing for even more creativity in the studio and in the booth. Pioneer also announced a new update for the DJS-TSP Project Creator, which extends sample length to 64 seconds.
HOW TO USE THE NEW LIVE SAMPLING FEATURE
Press [SHIFT] + [TRACK] to enter LIVE SAMPLING mode.
In LIVE SAMPLING mode, press a Performance Pad where no sample is loaded to instantly create a sample of a sound coming from an external source.
Record sounds from hardware, such as our professional monophonic analog synthesizer, the TORAIZ AS-1, in real time while automatically synchronising with sequence patterns in the TORAIZ SP-16. You can immediately loop, edit and use the sample directly in your music production process without assigning it to Performance Pads.
Live sampling helps make music creation more effortless thanks to the easy sampling of sounds from synths, various other types of equipment and even vinyl records.
