I have just been using records and a collection of samples I have had for a while, but I was thinking about getting a library... I came across the sounds for samplers librbary one time and it sounded pretty decent. What are you using? What is a good library seet up in Kits not all Kiks All snares all hats.
thanks

I guess the anwer is ofcourse people buy libraries... I have just been acustomed to making them myself. So which one are you using for hip hop production?

S4S is the way to go, I bought a Zip from them, Bangin Beats, and Sample Kings and the S4S were hands down the cleanest with thump. SK is good for RnB and BB is real grimey, too dirty for my taste

I gather samples from all over but when it comes to sample cd's specifically, I usually try and trade rather than buy. I will buy some from time to time but it usually ends up being a waste of money for something I could have layered and done 10 times better.

Lately i've been looking more to sample cd's rather than sampling off of vinyl.

I guess it's just a personal preferance. I really enjoy the synth oriented rap songs

that are coming out at the moment.

If you don't buy a sample cd, there are definitely liscensing issues involved with using the material. Odds are, nobody will ever spot the sample...but if they do...

There is no guarantee that the stuff on sample cd´s are cleared.. Estpecially stuff
that are lifted from records, I know of some people that has mad lots of sample cd´s
and when they got confronted they just denied that they had anything to do with it..

Are you talking about professionally pressed and distributed cds that have all the legal talk on them? I feel pretty safe using those.

I'll take from anything that sounds good to my ear, even if I have to make the sounds myself!
