Views on sampling

H3XAN3 [C6H14] from Melbourne on 2001-06-16 06:20 [#00009926]

I just wanted to know about everyone's opinions on sampling;
when is it cool an not cool, whether or not you feel a
little guilty when you sample.

...and what are people's alltime favourite sample cds.
...most cheeky sample that you've taken.

Front Line Assembly do a lot of sampling. My favorite is
Flavour of the Weak because it's evil.

i think when you create a whole song out of another is not
cool (a la puff daddy; who for me, has ruined some great

samples i like that sort of stick out is something like the
bob dylan sample beastie boys used in (i think) finger
licken' good. (on a side note, paul's botique is great

I usually get and idea for a sample and record it myself. It
feels a lot more satisfying.

I do however, enjoy using samples from The Usual
for my spookier tunes.

Sampling as an art form is fine, using sampled instruments
and shit like that, but not sampled vocal tracks or actual
musical pieces (like whole drum loops or bass lines) just
keep your thievery minimal

i'd agree. just little chords, keys, kicks, snares etc, so
you can sequence them yourself. thats half the fun anyway

Personally i think Daft Punk, is sample gods. thats the way
you want to do it..

One name, one and a half words: DJ Shadow.
He's very good at sampling, and gives it a good name.

i think stealing samples in good as long as it's not totally
ripped from some else's music. Like take for instance,
samples from a movie like A Clockwork Orange. I think it's
cool to use stuff like that to give music a little depth.

The Main Components of Good Music (In My Opinion):
1. Rhythm
2. Melody
3. Texture (samples, audio noise, etc.)
4. (optional) vocals
