Tips for making a sample pack demo track from nu.wav

An exciting demo track is often what gets us to explore the individual one-shots and loops contained within a sample pack.

But how is that demo track put together? While many of us are used to seeing things from the perspective of a sample user, how do the sample pack creators themselves choose to arrange, process, and make use of their own sounds?

Khaya and Bryn Bliska, co-founders of sample label nu.wav, sat down with us to provide some insight into this process. In the tutorial video above, the two break down how they crafted the demo track to their recent “No Boys Allowed” sample pack, taking us into their DAWs and walking through how they transformed the individual sounds into cohesive tracks.

Do you have a question about a particular technique covered in the video? What sample pack demo on Splice Sounds is your favorite? Let us know in the comments below.
