There are so many ways sample and a tonne of places to find them. But what if you felt chaotic one day and gave creativity up to the gods of randomness? That’s where Lo Dopemine’s Random Music Sample Generator comes in.
Using a bit of coding wizardry, the random generator picks a sample from YouTube (e-diggers rejoice!), a drum pack, and a YouTube beat tutorial to get the juices flowing. The idea is to get you out of your comfort zone and try something new with your music. It’s like Rhythm Roulette but without the blindfold.
With the generator, you experience three elements of music-making:
- New music
- New instruments
- New compositional techniques
The first two are easy enough to find if you expand your horizons but things like orchestration and general music theory are often overlooked. You don’t always need the perfect sounds to make a song interesting. And if you’re new to sampling in music, this is a great place to start.
