Posted 13 August 2007 - 01:23 PM

For awhile I have been using vinyl, my brother still does

However up until 2 weeks, I have been using burnt cds... with my Stanton Cdj turntables... why???

At first I did use the stanton because the cds of artists I like to sample like Isaac hayes or Gil Scott Heron are pretty expensive... 20 bucks a pop at least for one album...

It wasnt until 2 weeks ago that I started burning my own cds with random music from all sorts of genres. I go on ares and download anything that catches my eye, burn 20-40 songs a night on a cd and try to find samples with in those random songs cds...

I also download alot of instrumental pop, soul, rock, etc... even like techno...

I make sure that I chop, and that the samples are irrecognizable from the song... chop um up good...

With these random music cds and a stanton with 4 sampling pads hooked up to my MPC500, I dont need to do much triming at all. Sometimes all I need are 4 pads on my stanton...

Try that...

I was going to defend that as a typo, until I looked at my keyboard and noticed that the letter "N" is nowhere near "Y" or "E"

Some people think that they only can sample from vinyl when theres a shit ton of other ways to sample...

wait so you burn songs onto a cd then put the cd in the cdjs then record the samples?








why not just convert the mp3's to WAV files and record your samples from the computer

this is the lamest shit ive heard yet ---- downloading a bunch of mp3's and then sampling them!!! even if Dan Smith makes the most amazing beats ive ever heard he is now officially a massive toy in my book and will get no respect for anything he ever does.


call me a purist.... sample from OG wax only! you cant own any loops, as guru said, but you can spend the time to dig up the shit that no one else has looped.

digging for breaks is one of the founding pillars of hip hop - and must be taken seriously if you want your hip hop to be taken seriously.

lecture over. :P

Dan Is Just Grasping At Straws These Days

He Googled How to Sample.
Got a Link to Another Forum
Copy And Pasted Some Guys Paragraph



This Is Getting Pathetic
The Only Reason For This Thread Is To Try And Make Someone Believe That He Knows What He's Talking About

I don't even sample vinyl anymore, just get unknown, unheard and interesting music from the net.
Buying records is too expensive in london.

Ahhh...well if that's the case, then yeah...they're lamers...it's one thing to find out who sampled what tracks...but don't just go and take the same exact loops KNOWING that someone else did it already.

I've gone back in hindsight and found out that some beats I've made were loops that had been done already, but I'd never set out to re-create a beat and pass it off as my own shit...that's lame...

I respect your opinon bro, I know that sampling from wax is where hip hop came from...

However look at it from my perspective. Im saving for college which I will be attending in a year, saving for living costs, etc.

Do you really think with my pt. job I should go out and buy vinyl everytime I want to make a track? Have you even seen how much vinyl madlib, pete rock, etc. have???? A shit ton...

I love vinyl and will still sample from vinyl but right now, for me its more economical to only buy a few records and download alot of free cds...

I make cds to use with my stanton so I can sample them into my MPC because at the end of the day, I like working with hardware better then software... I do make the final mixs and masters in my computer on sony acid though...

If you can have FL Studios and be called a producer, then you sure as hell can download songs on cds to use with your mpc and cdj and still be a producer...

Make music no matter what...

Buying things in general is expensive anywhere...

Especially here in the US, our economy is going to be f***ed in a year or so when the minium wage goes to 7.00... Can you say "inflation" plus the already high gas prices...

And Im going to college so Im already going to be poor...
