The whole mess is pretty good but a track like ashby road made me wonder.. Allways gets me interested when i hear a good beat.. whats that sample?? How did he chop that break?? What was it made on??


haven't heard the track
so i don't know how he chopped it--only ashby shit i got is afro harping.
the-breaks is good to use for sample questions before asking elsewhere though

He didn't even use a cassette player it's something in Pro Tools that does it if you know Pro tools then you will figure it out that's all I will say.

he used reel to reel like all the big dogs and old school cats do. import export import export etc. you get the tapes. Only this new digital generation uses the protools plugin. The cats who know how to do the tape delays on 3 heads stick to it this day, no matta the cost. But I wouldn't put it past him towards his later years to try fucking w/ that, especially during his frail years when it was hard to lift a reel.

people that obsess over who used what can't be too confident in there music making. of course the sp-303 has it special touch and it's sound and you CAN hear it on a few madlib beats mainly due to the effects this little machine has. i have to admit i did find out about this sampler when madlib talked about it on the red bull music academy, but it was the price that appealed to me. never hade that MPC money, but it doesn't matter. the pads and effects on this one is superb!

It's good to know about all of the available tools for the job no? I don't see why people think lack of knowledge is a good thing. Sure, I understand it's lame to use a 303 because Madlib uses one, instead of it being the tool that suits you best... but it is also good to know what the machine is capable of from listening to how someone else uses one. The thing that gets me is that people will buy a used SP-303 for close to $300 on ebay when you can get an SP-404 new for $329-349.

i would never purchase a piece of gear just cos a certain producer/artist used it,but it is intresting to see other studio set ups thats why i bought that behind the beat book,the only thing im jealous of is that everyones seems to be tidy and mines a fuckin mess

From the wise words of madlib:

Tell me about your studio! How is it equipped?
The studio's very basic. mad records. I don't have no computers, I don't have any big setups people have. I just have my 303 sampler, or SP 12, or whatever I use and just records. And a little eight digital board. That's all I need. That's how I did all my records: Madvillain, Jaylib and all of that.

Doesn't that limit your possibilities?
It doesn't limit. It doesn't limit my possibilities. People just think they need computers and things to do the work for them, but I do my stuff the old school way, the hard way, you know what I'm sayin'?

So you been using the same equipment for more than ten years? Yeah. I mean I buy new things like a MPC, but it's still basically the same. I'll be having no computer setup or 24 tracks and none of that Pro Tools. I don't have that thing yet.

Who taught you to use this equipment?
Me. I just taught myself. Just messing with things.

Reading the manuals.
No (laughs). Just messing with things. I mean, the basic yeah, but I don't read the whole manual. You read how to start, and that's it. Basic. Cause all those machines are the same. It's what you put into it.

Dilla used reels to record the Fantastic Vol. 1 joint, which were later dumped to Pro Tools after he passed. So to say he didn't use a cassette player isn't a fair statement ... Reels are technically oversized cassettes. Just saying ...

because:
1. Thats like a magician telling how he does an illusion
2. Biting another artist's methods and equipment doesn't make you anymore like them then say....cutting your ear off would make you like van gogh. you'll never get anywhere biting styles, much less equipment.
