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...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.
