Old Sample Packs

Hi, I've been making Hip-Hop beats for about 2 years now and It's really hard for me to find good sample CD's. I keep coming across sample packs that are all just loops, but what I'm really looking for is something with sounds that I can use to create my own loops.

Old Sample Packs

Records is the best answer.
Another reasonable approach would be to chop and pitch the loops you like...

Hmmm.. I guess I have the opposite problem. Up to my ears in drum kits and one shots, but could use a few 4 or 8 bar loops.

I like a sample pack called "Smoker's Delight" (I think, not at home). I bought it at GC on clearance but I beleive it was pretty expensive. It's still loop based but it has REX files that you can use to either add elements, or even make your own tracks. It's nice because it's soulful and pretty extensive. Most of the main melodic loops have been used extensively in commercials and the like but it has a bunch of bass loops I like to use, some one shots, and some loops I will chop up for a bit of flavor. I don't use it as much as I used to but it's good.
