Own up - Which CDs have you sampled from?

I haven't done this for AGES. Used to do a lot of it back in the early 90's when samples were harder to come by.

There are some moments of Green Day where I've thought 'hmmm, I could have that kick and snare...' - like in the drum fill in When September Ends

So come on, own up. Tell us which tracks you've thought of pinching from.


PS I'm not really talking about 'loops' as such for dance music, more like single hits that you've liked the look of and thought about 'hiding' in your own track...or not even hiding, sticking right up front!

I always have a hard time making a super squashed processed snare from a mastered record sound like it fits in with a real set. Seems like once a record goes to mastering drums by themselves sound way different. Once I tried to sample one of my own recordings and had to go back to the unmastered mix to get the sounds... Just sounded like a drumset with an obvious sample.. probably just me..

I was lucky enough to have the owner of own of my favorite studio give me ALL his drum samples, so im done needing to find good samples

The waveform on my Cheap Tracks logo is from Alan Parsons Project "I Robot", but that was recorded from vinyl, not ripped from a CD.

There's 1000's more!
but I don't do this anymore and the beat goes on
when I was engineering in NY I would occasionally lay down a beat or a bassline if asked by the producer.
I got way tired of that scene fast, I was even in some videos as a stunt drummer, tiring, played out for me ten years gone.
It's better for the heart to do the real thing.
