    Its not necessary if you have a good workflow and are getting the end product you want. Its really up to you. there is no set rule.

    You don't sound very eager to do it, so probably not then
    Never do anything because you feel like you have to.

    If you have the resources (money for equipment, time to buy and listen to records) then it's worth it. It's something I've always loved to do, but it is more demanding as well... Is your music mainly sample-based or does it just have the occasional little snippet? That might be something to consider

    True sound comes from Vinyl. Its a good starting point.

    E-sampling is the way to go, why hold cases of samples when they is so much good stuff online? I guess the ideal situation is to have both so when you're in the purist mindset you can rip from vinyl.

    I sample from both vinyl and digital stuff, for me it's easier to discover new sounds and artists digging in them crates than sitting in youtube clicking links. Thats the only difference to me, honestly, because when I sample from digital sources I add that vinyl dirty as well lol.

    Vinyl sounds better, but if you can get .FLAC format or a high quality bitrate MP3 then it's just as fine. However nostalgic and awesome it is to sample from vinyls, the workflow is just faster in a digital setting for me personally.
