Sorry. These guys pull their samples from the same places everyone else does. There are programmers out there who sell samples to the big guys, there was a guy named Speedy who was hot for minute, I think he was selling zip disks with full MPC banks for a few hundred. Otherwise most of these guys are pulling stock sounds out and hitting them with EQ, compressors, etc. Kind of premastering them. Then resampling them for later use. Years ago I was asked by a programmer where we got all the drum sounds for the Michael Jackson records I worked on and he was shocked to learn that most of them came from sample CD's and ROM'plers that were tweaked during tracking and the mix. But hey, if want to do a custom sampling session I'd be happy to set it up for you. I've done it and it's actually a lot of fun.
