2015/04/24 One of big challenges in sampling virtual instruments is to establish virtual audio and MIDI connections which especially for beginners is not an easy task. So we are more than happy that Ultimate Outsider from Portland, Oregon, has covered this complex matter in his blog. We can recommend this useful and easy-to-follow tutorial to everyone interested in sampling virtual instruments. The tutorial is based on tools available for Windows. You can apply the same method when working on Mac. Johan Looijenga nicely summed up on his website how to create virtual MIDI ports on Mac. And for the virtual audio cable you can use the well known Soundflower for OS X. Have fun and thanks to Ultimate Outsider!
