Hello hello welcome to the sound mix lab I am your host Jason Donnelly aka Dj Puzzle reporting for my website www.ipadloops.com and today we're gonna do a little sampling with an iPad and an app called Beat Twirl. Beat Twirl is an app inspired by Propellerheads Recycle. What it allows us to do is record a stream of audio hits and automatically slice them up and export the slices so that we can easily import then into our sampler or drum machine app of choice.
Our audio source will be these two Teenage Engineering Pocket Operators. We've got a simple mini plug Y adapter and two 1/4 inch adapters going into the iTrack Dock. The pocket operators are good for producing chiptune. Use these free samples in your mixes. Samples from PO-28 Robot and PO-20 Arcade.
Let's start recording. Here you will see the record options. Have the wait for audio enabled. What this will do is tell the app to start recording right when it picks up the first sound. Now the record button will become a small square when it is armed and you should see your VU meters dancing. Make sure you adjust the gain accordingly and leave a bit of head room. Hit the record button again to name and save your samples. Now lets adjust the slice sensitivity to place our slice points. You can also adjust the silence parameter to remove silence from each slice. Next we will export the individual slices in a zip file to our dropbox. Now we can open and extract the zip pack into Audioshare and open them in our app of choice. Let's choose patterning. Suppose I'll have a little jam. Thanks for watching and please remember to subscribe to my channel. You can download the free samples via a link I placed in the video desciption below.
