What would it be like to sample live audio? 

One way to make a beat is by reusing parts of a recording in a creative way.

Think About

  • How can you reuse existing music creatively?

Get Started

  1. Go to the Voice Spinner
  2. “Sample” live audio  in your browser by tapping the mic button and using your voice, an instrument, or whatever you have access to that can make a sound 
  3. Play around with the slider by moving it left and right to speed up and slow down the sample and play it forward and backward
  4. Imagine what it would be like to chop up the recording into smaller parts and then to re-arrange the parts or to use the smaller parts in new and interesting ways.
