8-Bit Digital Sampler Hack – Where’s The Party At?

September 26, 2008

Making music is a very convenient activity nowadays.  Anyone with a basic computer can download music production software and get to work making hits.  For many, this ease of music making is added fun, but for a significant contingent, a lack of required ingenuity is just boring.

Music hacker/bender Todd Bailey came up with "Where’s ThePart At?" (WTPA), which is a simple, homemade lo-fi 8-bit digital sampler.

Get the details of WTPA’s construction or watch the video of this little device in action.

I’d agree that it takes years to develop skill and make quality music, but as we’ve seen many times, hits can be made in a matter of minutes using premade Garageband loops or keyboard demo songs. It’s all very relative.

Are hits the goal or is the goal to have fun and make music?

@Edlock
To each his own, but my vote is for the fun aspect. Btw… I think you just inspired an editorial.

this shit is not about fun Edlock. Its about making hits son. If your having fun, stop it. Unless you make perfect beats for industrry purposes, your a wack ass back pack madlib-type producer…so wipe that smile off your face, load up a modern beats dirty south kit, and get to work. Remeber, layer your synths, mmmkay?
