About the Live Sampling Mix

This mix was created for electronic musicians using live sampling techniques: no prerecorded sounds. Just take what you hear, transform it, and use that as your “voice” in the performance. Because of this principle, the first track was also recorded without using pre-recorded sounds. Instead, it uses acoustic feedback (Larsen tones) and electronic intervention by the performance system (e.g., distortion, ground hum, and an intermittent connection).

If you want to contribute to this mix, you’ll need to grab the sound you hear and transform it. No other sound sources!

This could be as simple and lo-fi as holding a microphone up to a speaker or using a cable to connect your line out to your line in. For cleaner results, consider using software like the following:
