you can't do that!!!!! surely thats never forgive action!! sample your drums from old records or youre soft.
See, I rarely break them out. I think out of 60+ beats I've done since the start of last summer (when I DL-ed the kit) I've used them on 2 beats. One was a fuck-around beat where I trie dto write exclusively with the Dilla Kit for inspiration (didnt work all that well btw), and the other is this one, though it's layered with 2 other snares that I sampled on my own. As for building up kits, I have a few that I've done besides the Dj Quick kit, but they're minimal (Greek garage bands, turkish 60s music, soul tracks from the 60s, etc) with MAYBE one or two snares and some hats. I've said before that I'm just getting started in this game...still building my arsenal. And I don't consider it soft for a beginner to use samples that someone else dug anyway...you gotta start somewhere right?
