The DRG Attitude Toward Sampling
It's amazing to me how much samples are impacting our current musical world; over the years pre-recorded bit are being used progressively more, and the compositions featuring them sound way less clumsy and obvious than "Can't Touch This".
I'm interested in finding out more about how our hallowed Dino members view samples and sampling, and whether or not they use them in their own recordings.
I personally find samples useful for sound design, however I'm not interested in using them for anything but layering over my own, mostly formed, compositons. Making a sample the main point of a piece, to me, isn't really composing, it's editing.
Really curious about others' feelings on this, apparently hugely important aspect of musicmaking. It almost never (if ever) comes up here (and I at least partly sympathize with this).
