The purpose of this thread is to discuss crate digging, using samples to create dance music, using samples to create new sounds, chopping breaks, music theory vs. sampling etc. The conversation should steer away from using drum one shots and focus on using snippets of other artist’s work to create something new, remixing, cooking loops etc.
Posting WIPs and finished products is encouraged but posts should include a fairly wordy description about what samples were used, how they were processed and arranged etc. If you just want general feedback please post in the Listening Booth. Likewise, feedback to tracks to should focus on the sampling aspect rather than general feedback. Discussion of specific software or hardware is also OK as long as its related to a specific song that’s been posted–we already have a Hardware Megathread and I don’t want to step on its toes.
To restate the purpose of the thread, the target of conversation should be on how you used samples to create something you posted or questions about how to use samples to create dance music. The kind of samples we are talking are those “found in the wild” but we can also talk about those obtained through sample packs or subscription services. No drum one shot discussion as that’s been done to death.
