    who the **** samples from youtube? thats some real low-level shit right there. the game is so ****ed up right now I can't even believe it

    if you don't know the difference between mp3 and vinyl, you need to do some studying before you start producing. thats some real basic shit

    Import in as a .wav - never use MP3, compresses it too much.

    People are oblivious out of stubbornness.

    Last time vinyl was the only source people were using to sample from was back when samplers were maxing out at like mono 22khz 8bit wavs. THOSE DON'T SOUND BETTER THAN AN MP3.

    Quit lying to yourselves.

    I've never heard a rapper or consumer say "that beat is dope, but you need to replace that mp3 sample off youtube with a wav one from an actual record.

    Once it's smothered in drums and other instruments, the degraded quality isn't noticeable. That's why it became a practice to smother samples underneath drums and sounds back when people had 22khz 8 bit mono samplers with 5 seconds of memory.

    Yet we dare pretend some magical essence is lost taking a song that was ripped from vinyl off an HQ youtube channel. Tell that to guys with hit records made off entire beats downloaded from soundclick.

    I bet most dudes debating this don't even get a good quality input off their turntables when they run them to their computer anyway.

    Sidenote: any time I have the choice, I'm going for the wav/aiff/ape/flac/bin cue/iso file. But if the sound is there in whatever form, I'm getting it, and making it into a quality production by the time it's a finalized song.

    Two things that annoy me are people who are positive out of ignorance, and people who are negative out of bitterness. People who are neither usually get along with me and agree with most of what I say. People who are one of the 2 think I'm the other.

    I AM THE BEST PRODUCER EVER I SAMPLE STRAIGHT FROM THE SOURCE I SNEAK INTO JAM SESSIONS IN GARAGES AND CHANNEL THE RAW NATURAL SOUND INTO PRO TOOLS Y'ALL LOSERS AIN'T EVEN IN MY LEAGUE B.

    But seriously. Some of y'all the reason I'm ashamed to use the term "producer". Some of you just can't get off some elitist shit.

    This is my general rule about this kind of thing. If it sounds good, let your head naturally get your nod on, and impresses regular people aka consumers then it's all good. the key being regular people. Don't go trying to impress "producers". They ain't ever gonna be happy.

    "That's dope, but you should put a bit more reverb on the 3rd hihat hit and a bit more compression on the bass"

    "***** your beats sound like the bastard child of Tears For Fears and Cameo"

    Some of you creating a three year old's fingerpaintings with high-grade pastels, and some of you drawing Renaissance era masterpieces with a No 2 HB pencil. Think about that.

    THE FUKKING IRONY HURTS.

    Yeah, man, "just cant get off" trying to use quality ingredients. Just cant give that shit up... lol.
    Seriously, this is fukking stupid.

    "Think about" this;
    The fact that some people might sample from mp3 streams is not so bad.
    But that people are defending it, and recommending it? Thats pretty fukking bad.
    "Producers"
    FP has gone full retard...

    No one's saying that you should be sampling exclusively from mp3's. In fact, everyone here is saying the exact same thing you just said.

    No one's saying that mp3's are better than ripping a wav off a vinyl, because that would legitimately mean you don't know anything. BUT what I'm saying is mp3's are still a resource you can use, and it'd be rather foolish to not use it when necessary.

    If you on an SP-12 Drum Machine keepin it "real" and 'to the essence", your vinyl samples will be crappier than a youtube rip. 100% FACT.

    I recommend getting sounds from anywhere. I'll sample arps or a melody I played from a vsti I have in demo mode. I'll sample from Netflix or Hulu. I'll go to ebay to buy records(still e-diggin, right?), sample from itunes, TV.

    I used to sample from Tape decks, the radio, video games from running the RCA audio cables to my sampler. now compare that to "youtube quality". I used to sample "porn music" and "HBO/Showtime movie soundtracks" from the blurry channels(you know, don't pay for them and they're all staticy with hella white noise to clean up, but worth it for a good loop). People just want reasons to pretend they're doing more than the next guy.

    A youtube sample isn't the worst thing you can throw into a song. Even Skrillex has done it with big hits, and i never heard his mix quality questioned.

    Crazy lady screaming at skateboarders? - YouTube


    0:25 He got it from this exact video. Guess we're all at a better bracet of quality than skrillex?

    In our minds only.
