The SP-808 makes it possible to create pitch shifted samples without touching the length of the sample. This is a cool way to create chords with a vocal.
I’ve created a video where I explain how to create these chords. For sure you will recognise the used vocal, which came from an old Zero-G sample CD.
Pitch Shift Function Note Range
In the Pitch shift parameters menu of the SP-808 you can choose numbers from -12 until +12. Down below you see the corresponding notes. Let me make clear that your sample is value number 0 and not C. This is just a guidance to create your own chords.
For a C Minor chord you pitch shift the samples to the following numbers: Original sample + Pitch Shifted 3 + Pitch Shifted 7
For a A Major chord you pitch shift the samples to the following numbers: Pitch shifted -3 + Pitch Shifted +1 + Pitch Shifted 4
And so on!
Here is the video where you can see it by yourself.
