    I sold my vinyl collection because I would much rather e-dig. Sampling from vinyl takes so long that by the time you sit down in your DAW with your sample, your creative juices have stopped flowing.

    Each person's workflow is different. If you have mp3s and use a software daw as your primart piece, its already there. If you use hardware, sampling vinyl in is easier than hooking to computer etc. The solution, do both, mp3s and vinyl. I dont get stuff off youtube though unless its movie clips.

    FYI, sampling from a youtube stream isn't gonna be any worse quality than sampling from vinyl into an old sampler like what's found on an old MPC.

    For space people were sampling at like 11khz 8-bit in mono on those things for tons of classic hip hop records. That's where alot of the "grit" that people confuse with "analog sound' comes from.

    To answer the question, I sample from whatever's there. Vinyl, CDs, DVDs, Netflix/Hulu, Youtube, Pandora, Spotify, old sessions recorded right here in my studio, videos recroded on my iphone, anywhere.
    and like this.
    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'll mess with flacs and wavs but there's not a huge variety available in these formats so it's mostly vinyl, you can get records for a dollar anyway.

    Not all records are a $1 plus not everyone has access to records because records stores arent in abundance anymore. I only know of one in my area and they are $3-$5 a pop!

    damn there are like 10 in a 30 mile radius of my house. Granted one in my area closed earlier this year but I have a lot and a few of them are priced that way.

    Im constantly e-digging but i generally try to find a higher quality version then from youtube. Youtube is a great place to search for samples but the quality is generally poor. On the other hand if I am gonna distort and tweak a sample a lot then youtube is fine because the lower quality doesnt really matter.

    When Im on the road I mess around with Youtube. Usually have to play out basslines instead of filtering tho. Quality of the lowends is low.

    Def on that spotify shit. My interface lets me route my output into my DAW easily so I can have the relatively good quality samples compared to Youtube and the workflow is similar to what it was on my MPC(but all in the box).

    And I def E-dig. I can have any song/performance/soundbite that exists on the world wide web with a few clicks, any producer would be stupid to ignore this.

    I have mad respect for the ways of the past but for the modern age there are simply better ways to produce results of the same quality. You can always filter/bitcrush and alot of old records on YouTube were sampled from vinyl anyways, so you still get that vinyl crackle LOL

    I used vinyl in the first 3 years. the last 4 years i only sample mp3's but im planning to hook up my turntables/mixer again in the future to get rare samples from vinyl.
    I can recommend Soulseek to any music collector. You can find most good records on there and share your collection of course.
