Have fun learning the basics of sampling using Ableton Live’s Simpler sampler with Ableton-Certified Live Trainer and electronic music performer, Laura Escudè.
So what is sampling and how does Ableton’s Simpler sampler work? Well, let Laura Escudè show you!
In this “sampling-for-beginners” tutorial renowned violinist and electronic music performer Laura Escudè takes you through the very basics of sampling using Ableton Live’s stock sampler, Simpler. She starts you off with an overview detailing the history of audio sampling from it’s nascent beginnings with the famous Fairlight CMI through to software samplers of the present day.
From there you’re off to a zoomed-in, zoomed-out look at the Simpler Plugin that is included with every copy of Live. Laura takes you through all of Simpler’s parameters from envelopes to LFO’s showing you how they work and how she uses them in her music. She discusses the differences between Simpler and Live’s premium instrument, Sampler ... and also shows you how they work together!
Finally, Laura, includes a few “workshops” where she divulges the arcana behind her “Cello Wobble” sound and how to use Simpler in an Instrument Rack. Laura then puts it all together with a triptych of videos showing how she uses Simpler in her live performances.
So if you’re new to sampling and want to know how to use Simpler - or if your just want to learn some cool sample playback techniques -

Pretty thorough look at Simpler, though at times delivered a bit coldly. But v. impressed with the track at the end produced solely within Simpler! Shows that even this instrument can be powerful!
This is a very well thought tutorial designed to teach you the intricacies of Live's simpler instrument. Even if you have been using the device for years, you should discover something new here.
Really Enjoyed the tutorial section on creating the "Wobble Bass" with a cello using the SIMPLER good stuff.
excellent way to begin learning the basics of sampler, simpler is just as powerful tool as many high priced samplers out there. This tutorial takes you from being a novice to being very proficient in the instrument.
Very clear tutorial, covered all the parts and shows how to use simpler in different scenarios, I recommend it!
Awesome Tutorial! Very easy to follow. Also very entertaining. It is awesome to see how everything is put together in the demo song at the end. Thanks Laura and macprovideo.
Great Tutorial! She really explains everything on Simpler, and with an excellent course structure. If you are looking to learn about Simpler without having any previous knowledge, this is your course. And I really enjoy the last video, where she shows how she integrates Simpler to her real job. Pretty cool and inspiring!
Great Work !!! She has explained Simpler's all Parameters in details giving thorough knowledge and explanations how to work with them and how to use them in making ones own music. And, this she has shown in her last video tutorial in this course how she uses in her live performance. She has also presented this tutorial in very good style and touching language that I feel to listen again and again. Tutorial is Excellent.

Having watched Laura's tutorial,again,each time it does not disappoint. Laura's approach to the Simpler,is great,explaining,in detail how to change the ordinary into extra ordinary,ha,ha Im have dabbled in sampling in another DAW,but this has re energized me!! If you want sounds that are yours,as in bespoke,and not the same old stuff,this video is for you!! The end demo track Laura put together,is great,bringing the whole tutorial to a very nice conclusion Welcome done!! Laura
Laura's tutorial on Simpler was excellent. She thoroughly explained the ins & outs of Simpler in a very friendly and easy to understand mannner. She has most definitely opened my horizons in creating more music with this instrument. Thanks!
Amazing video! Very thorough and informative. I am grateful that Laura took the time out to go over every single parameter within the simpler and how it can change and enhance the sounds individually or collectively. I recommend this tutorial to anyone looking to change they way they produce their music especially if it is loop and sample based, like my own. I wish I could play the violin like Laura tho.. Shucks.. soundcloud.com/spieshouse - that is our sounds..
I watched the sampler tutorial and thought I didn't need this one, but now after watching it I'm glad I did, learnt loads of new stuff and Laura is surely a great teacher, everything's explained in plain english so everyone can understand it, from those that have never heard for Ableton to those that now they wey around but would like to dig deeper! Great job Laura, thanks!
Basic tutorial on how to use the simpler and sampler. If you're a newbie to Ableton, this may be the perfect introductory tutorial to grasp the capabilities of Ableton's simpler/sampler. Well explained, short and to the point.
