Sampling Halloween: Pumpkin Massacre with Elektron Digitakt
In this video from musician Dave Mech, we get to listen to a Halloween-themed song that uses samples made from smashing a pumpkin alongside the help of the Elektron Digitakt drum machine and sampler.
From information he provides in the video’s description:
Soooo it’s almost halloween so I thought I’d do a Halloween special on sampling. In this video I torture some pumpkins, record the sounds from that and other creepy sounds, and create a techno track from it with the Elektron Digitakt sampler. I got some help this time from Jasmijn. She has an awesome instagram account: instagram.com/jijifromnl . She makes very cool drawings and she also created the instagram and bandcamp artwork for this video. Many thanks to her for helping out!
If you enjoyed the song from the video, you can download it for free, as well as the sample pack used, via Dave Mech’s Bandcamp page.
