Thereâ€™s not only a countdown of the 5 most iconoclastic hardware samplers, but each episode will also feature a slot about the Art Of Sampling. A journey from the early sound piracy days of Stockhausen and Varese to current laptop samplers like Mark thingy and doobie wotsit (you know who I mean).
The professorâ€™s back too, with his own surreal view of sampling and his unhealthy obsession with â€˜that girl from the Human Leagueâ€™ (not the blonde one, the other one!). Heâ€™ll also be visualising samples for the hard of hearing and discussing â€˜criminalâ€™ sample overkill.
As well as romanticising about the golden age of sampling, weâ€™ll be chatting to boffins and musos about the current state of the industry and the events, software and technology that will shape its future in years to come.
So as the nights draw in we can guarantee that thereâ€™ll be plenty for you to watch on SonicTV. Meantime, enjoy this trailer for the Top 5 Greatest Samplers of all timeâ€¦EVER!
The series will be made up of a combination of editorial suggestions and the choices of the people we interview. The 'chart' format is used for entertainment value and is not intended to represent a definitive rundown.
