Slowing down/elongating a short percussion sample?
I'm currently working working with a shaker sample, and am having a bit of a hard time getting it to sound the way I want. I want to take it from the short, staccato sound that it starts out as and turn it into a long, drawn-out washy kind of thing.
The closest example I can think of is in James Blake's "I Only Know (What I Know Now)":
It first shows up at about 0:56, and continues throughout the track as a sort of background texture. It very well could be an ocean sound or something that started off that long, but the overall quality of the sound leads me to believe otherwise. Either way, I'm very interested in figuring out how to this could be done in Ableton.
I've messed around with the sound inside Sampler and have also tried processing it through the various warping algorithms, but that's hasn't yielded much success.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
