Cook Classics On Samples, Production, “Street Life” Track Construction

Producer Cook Classics talks sample selection, chopping, and arrangement while taking us through the construction of the instrumental for "Street Life" f/ Sean Price, Sha Stimuli, and Cymarshall Law.  Pro Tools, Roland MV, and Roland Juno are all demonstrated in the recreation of the track.

  1. btw where did he get the wah effect from? coz it doesn’t sound like it’s from the original sample. Is it a stock sound in the roland?

  2. white boy got soul! i can dig it .keep doin your thing. i don’t know how he flipped that sample the way he did. thats was not an easy sample to chop but he made it sound hot. i thought it was pacman lol that same sample little flip chopped on the game over cd. i was wrong.
