To demonstrate the new time stretching capabilities of BeatCleaver, we first went to dig for samples on CCMixter, a popular Creative Commons sampling site. After discovering some funky guitar samples, we threw them into BeatCleaver to time-stretch, repitch, and chop them.
Give a quick listen to the original samples, followed by a time-stretched and repitched version of each:Time Stretching with BeatCleaver - "Guitars" Samples by Oscillicious
Then, we dragged the chopped up samples from BeatCleaver into our favorite sampler and sequencer, and wrote a short instrumental hip hop track using the slices:Time Stretching with BeatCleaver - "Guitars" Demo Song by Oscillicious
We'd like to give a special thanks to the talented artists who've generously licensed their samples under the Creative Commons BY license over on CCMixter. We'd also like to thank MPC-Samples.com for the beat!
