Using sounds/voices/samples

Can I use samples of music that are copy written in the event that I've added enough plugins that they are no longer recognizable by the source? Obviously knowing right from wrong the answer would've been no because its illegal but if I'm sure the original sample will not be put into question then can I use it?

you could use it if you want to, but just because it is unrecognizable doesnt mean someone couldnt come after you for it.

its all about weighing the pro's and cons of if your going to actually get sued or whatever.

chances are that your song probably wont blow up, so you probably would be fine, but if it did happen to hit it big and someone recognized the sample, you could get sued.

its all up to you really.
