Pre-1990 sampling

by Paul Wiffen

Sampling has been with us more more than 10 years.Paul Wiffen takes a retrospective look at its development and how it has shaped the music of the last decade.

The first sampler I ever heard was on a 1980 record. The track Army Dreamers, from the Kate Bush album Never For Ever. Although my ears told me that I was hearing a cello there was no mention of a cellist, just a credit to one Geoff Downes on 'Fairlight'. Whatever this mysterious device was, I wanted one! via http://www.fortunecity.com/emachines/e11/86/synth7.html
