Hey, i hope you dont mind if i ask one or two very basic sampling questions. First of all - what can i sample? For example High Contrasts Kiss Kiss Bang Bang has 3-4 samples from other songs in it. Most of them just pitched up as far as i can hear. Do i have to ask the copyrightholder of every sample if i can use it? Most of the used samples are from very old songs. So are there any "rules" - like i can sample everything from songs that are older than x years? Or i can use samples as long as they are not longer than x seconds? Second thing is: HOW do you sample? What source do you use? (I dont have the money for vinyl...) What do you do with your samples before working with them to "clean" them out? I like personal tips and links for further reading Thank you very much!
