How to filter out sounds to get a better sample!

Yeah me too. Most of the time I try to keep it simple by using a 3-band EQ and leave some mids in there.
3-band EQ and leave in some mids? Ok I think I have a plug-in that can possibly accomplish this. I just haven’t used it yet.

Thanks for all the feedback. 3 band eqs take awhile to get right for me so I prefer EQ8s view more. My EQs lines usually look smooth with some concave next to each other like a womans body part, instead of jagged like a rock.

You may like the Auto Filter effect better if your doing that! Just get on the right Envelope with it's Resonance to do what I'm thinkin. Especially when filtering just a bassline out...mids are dope too. It's where I get a similar MPC lofi sound on Ableton.

I would like to chime in and say when it comes to filtering there isnt a one size fits all approach. You have to treat each sample individually, for example... if you intend to add your own bassline, then high pass filter below around 200hz to taste to make room for your bassline. Or another example, if you find the sample clashes with a snare then cut around 1300hz to taste. If a sample clashes with a hi hat then low pass the high end.
The trick is to cut from the sample what is in your added sounds so you minimise frequency clash and give your added sounds room to breathe.
