    Default Samples, Sample Selection and Usuage

    due to a topic brought up in a battle thread about a said sample, it sparked the idea of this thread.

    discuss what you look for in a sample, what processes you may go through and how you approach a sample (chops vs loops)

    build on it.

    What's to say... anything can be sampled. Hip hop producers tend to sample soul music and old jazz records. 70's rock seems to be upcoming too.

    according to that thread not everything can be sampled, nor should it be.

    so there must be some desired attributes to a sample, some may have differing views about what those are.

    Everything can be sampled. Even the sound of a baby laughing (Timbaland). What barely gets sampled though is drum heavy parts of songs(unless it's a drum break you need). Sure you can do it, but it's a lot harder to work with. I don't know any pros who do that, usually they take the intro to a song and loop or flip it.

    what he said
    generally go for an instrument section w/o drums or very little drums

    whether said portion sounds good to the listener/ producer is an infinite chance though

    What you need to know is how the wave picture works, you know when you edit the sound and there's a thing with the spikes and shit, I don't know how you call it...



    Anyway, that thing ^ I like to make slices at every spike and just play. Sometimes I even slice at the notes and play it note for note. I have a lot of unfinished projects like this laying around.

    Just search for Jaisu on youtube, he's fucking nuts with samples and chops. It inspired me to get the ol' MPD out of the dustbin and start chopping.

    if u get in a battle then u should not be allowed to pick and choose a sample. Mess with whatever ppl put to ya. It's not even about who can make something that sounds like it came off the shelf. It's about who is really more creative as a producer. Battle culture is so different now, people don't want to hear the same 4/4 pattern & sample chops anymore. They want weirdo off the wall records that nobody would touch. I feel my only limits as a producer are created by myself. How do you know shit will not come out dope if u don't mess with it? There is more benefit sometimes in sampling things that are not commonly used cause you never know. It's all based on experience though and personal feelings. No wrong answers really since this is all a learning process.

    As far as chopping goes...I do it by ear on the MPC 500 since there is no visual way to trim. Only by the numbers. Chop Shop sometimes on the 2500 and Recycle, Cubase or Audition for my MAC/PC.
