Hi! Some users of the latest GarageBand have requested alternate ways to sample in GarageBand 10. So we'll be using the TX16Wx Software Sampler because it's free and has professional features. We'll make a drum kit and slice up loops and trigger them with Musical Typing or a MIDI controller.
Download the "AU version" - TX16Wx Software Sampler Plugin (Free version and Pro version) here: http://www.tx16wx.com/downl...

if you really enjoy their software, please consider donating and going Pro.
These developers are really awesome for giving this for free.
The original way to sample in GarageBand is to follow this method https://www.youtube.com/wat...
but unfortunately for some, the Legacy Presets that are required for new users in version 10 are missing. If you upgraded from an old version of GarageBand 6, you might have the Legacy presets and shouldn't have an issue. The TX16Wx Software Sampler is a great solution to that problem.
Q: How do I get the plugin to appear in GarageBand?
A: Go to GarageBand in the top menu bar and select Preferences, the Audio/MIDI tab in that window and then you'll see a check box next to Effects: Make sure it has a checkmark and then restart GarageBand.
Remember: GarageBand 10 uses AU (Audio Units) plugins and they need to be 64-bit.
Q: How do I change the Pitch of my sample?
A: This isn't as easily answered over a comment, so I highly recommend reading the manual for keywords like "Transpose" and "Detune" and "Pitch". The reason for this is that there are several ways to tune, detune, transpose and even alter the pitch of incoming MIDI notes and more of your sample. The best way is subjective to your own needs and samples used.
Check out the manuals and quick start guide here. They even have pictures included in them so you can see what to click on as you're reading about a knob or function and getting aquinated to the terminology of this plugin. http://www.tx16wx.com/downl...
Q: Did you know that people cannot reply to you?
A: Please make sure people can reply to you. There's a hidden setting in Google+ that prevents me (anyone, really...) to reply to your comment. You will need to enable it so people can reply to you and possibly help you out. Watch this so you can check and see if Reply is enabled and how to turn on the Reply button for your account. https://youtu.be/9JstXOp0jjo
