Sampling from songs

Hey guys
Just wanted to know how do the big name artists get samples from songs and take out the backing they dont want. Say if they wanted just the strings on one song how would they take out the bassline, drums, vocals etc...???
Cheers

Try this.

Find an open drums, open bass, and other instruments.
But if you listen to that gritty hiphop sound, they just go for EQ, isolate the frequencies that they dont want to use.
It wont be perfect gone but... thats why they called "Gritty Hiphop Sound"
Listen to Premiere's stuffs.
or RJD2, DJ Shadow, and Stones Throw.

for that method you just need an eq and some basic knowledge about frequency ranges. here's a good place to start.

Modern hip hop generally doesn't "take out" the backing via EQ, it samples parts of songs that are instrumental only. (Or, in Kanye fashion, leave a vocal part in and speed the sample up.) This is done by doing what every producer must do: spend hours listening through 1,000's of tracks looking for a sampleable piece of music. Welcome to the world of hip hop production.

They get in touch with the artists, and get the masters and re mix it to sample.

That's what George Clinton did anyhow.

If you have the accapella and the full track you can reverse engineer the vocals out of the main track by phase canceling. The vocals need to be dead center tho.
