If you’re a DJ or musician looking for an online resource and community dedicated to the art and science of sampling, you might want to check out Homegrown Sounds’
World of Sampling.
Soft samplers such as NN-XT, EXS24, HALion, Kontakt (
coming to the Mac this month) and VSampler are the initial focus of the site. FAQs have been put in place for each of them. Other formats like Akai and Gigasampler are planned for the future, and World of Sampling is hoping to attract the interest of other contributors who can provide info, articles and content.
“We hope that World of Sampling will develop into a vibrant community, and we are planning to add a users pages section in the future where members will have their own page on World of Sampling which links to their own Web site and audio files,” said Homegrown Sounds. Already there’s a links page where users can add their own site, and a download page that links to sounds and utilities.
