2 Important Things To Remember


Before we proceed, there are 2 very important things to remember, especially for hip-hop producers


#1. When pitching any sample (especially of the hi-hat variety), don’t veer too far away from the original pitch. Unwanted artifacts are bound to occur.


#2. As you pitch the hat up, the duration of your sample becomes shorter; as you pitch the hat down, it will be longer.


That is unless you’re using a ‘Stretch’ Algorithm, which compensates for alterations in sample length/time when the pitch changes.


I recommend pitching hat samples up/down a MAX of 6-7 semitones.
