Adding samples to your music.
Samples are an extremely effective way of adding an extra missing piece to your music, or making a part of your song memorable and unique. Common samples are bass drops, spoken word voice recordings or a sound clip from a TV show or Movie.
Finding samples - especially royalty free samples - is the hardest part about adding in sounds to your song. A few websites I have found useful for this are on the LINKS page, I mostly use Freesound.org, as their library is all royalty free and no payment needed.
Once you have found the sample you would like to add to your music, you simply drag and drop the sample on to your new track.
Position your sample (you may need to toggle OFF the snap to grid to position correctly and in time) and have a listen. You may also need to adjust the volume as most samples have already been compressed and/or had a limiter applied.
And that's how easy that is.
[Note how the bass drop lands with the bass drum]
Make sure to move your sample in to a desired folder BEFORE adding it in to the song, as if you move it afterwards, the DAW will not be able to find it and it may crash or have issues with playback.
