I donno man, It sounds alright. Samples are samples.

As long as the vibe is good, who the fuck gives a shit what you do? except for Cosmo, he'll tell us all to go to hell.

Personally, I use samples, but I chop them up.

I use samples usually one hit drum samples from firends 909 /808 and vocal samples... Don't feel right using sample packs gotta roll my own...

same here. it's not like these samples are used in any creative way...even in a basic way, like chopping up an amen break or something; these are clip-art-equivalent samples that are ready to go, drag and drop into your tracks for maximum youtube plays. Using a nice, recorded brass sample is one thing, but understanding HOW to use it, and understanding HOW to write a track is/are different things. So, you have a house track, and out of the blue, there is a sax solo - no context, not related to any other part of the track, it just simply gets plopped in there to create some human element that the track was otherwise missing. Then you click on another youtube vid, and it's the same sax solo plopped into yet another half-assed (but very big, shiny!) tune.

I try to stay away from a full sax riff or whatnot . Acapella yes. Mostly chopping them to point where it makes its own sound. But I get what you guys are saying.

Personal secret: Use samples but Melodyne the shit out of them. You can do anything with Melodyne, esp with the DNA feature: change notes, change melody, change key, change chord progression. Most amazing piece of software out there for sample freaks like me.
