    I work with Mp3's mainly. If you're going for warm-straight-off-the-vinyl oldschool sound I wouldn't worry too much. I do rip vinyl to wav but vinyl where I live is expensive and it is much more economical to look online. Don't limit yourself. And it is important to remember what you do with the sample is more important than the sound quality of it.

    I'd say it depends on your workflow. If you're primarily using software, I don't see a problem with mp3's. However, if your working with hardware like an MPC or SP, it'd probably be easier to hook up a turntable and record straight into the box.

    Suggest to close the topic and make it "sticky".

    sampling mp3 is a bad move. if you change the pitch you shift the whole mix of the compression to a slightly distorted drone on large speakers. it's not bad. but it does change sounds quality. it lacks the punch.

    Holy fukkin lol.

    Everything about that is wrong.

    First, dont take 'drummer boy' advice, about ANYTHING.
    Second, it is SO NOT a placebo effect, that I really doubt you actually read that anywhere.

    Is this board really on that level now?
    Literally debating whether or not lossless formats are better, and citing Lil fukking Drummer Boy as proof....???????

    I thought it was funny that there was debate over vinyl vs youtube, then I read further...

    OMG, and further-

    naw I believe he read it on FP lol. I mean it doesn't matter in the context of if a song is hot or not but I think it really does matter in terms of sound which can or cannot be important to an individual. I think with the way people want new music today I think that crate digging can really slow down the process especially because we live in a quantity over quality world.
