    Always wondered...
    The first tune i ever produced was about 4 years ago and i used a sample that went
    "The people they killed, get up and .. KILL!"
    Now this sample made the tune itself. i want to do a re-edit of this tune but i clearly remember that at one of the first raves i went to, danny byrd dropped a tune that had that exact sample in it and i was gutted. Anyone know what tune this is and is it a big name tune and am i going to be steppin on anyones toes if i use the sample in a tune?

    Cyantific doesn't own the sample anyway. You can use it which ever way you want.

    mate, loads of people use the same samples... couple i can think of are:

    'this should be played at high volume'
    'make my day'

    I am refering to Noisia - My World...good tune, but didn't get the proper permission and ended up releasing a track that was well below he quality of the original. IMO of course.

    I dont get it, why dont people just make their own samples, this way your music is totally original and wouldnt risk copy right issue.
    I mean surly if a song is 100% done by you, you will be more pleasing?:|
    (Just a thought, dont shoot lol):idea:

    drum and bass and especially jungle always were sample based. why change a running system?

    and apart from that, some stuff like pianos and guitars are pretty hard to do inside the box.

    but why am i arguing? each to their own i suppose.

    I will only use voice/tv/movie samples. never ever use a musical samples! plus i have recorded a few of my own samples in the past when i wanted to say something specific, but then u cant always get it to have that "sampled" sound. def an each to their own argument lol

    Personally I think it's more about selection, if it's memorable and makes your tune stand out from the rest, then why shouldn't you use a sample as long as it's a good one? Especially if you haven't got a mic, and it's an absolute minor if it's been used before imo just make your tune better/use the sample better and you're sorted haha

    I def like the ideas of using tv/movie/voice samples, that track with the Geroge Bush speech was epic, cant remember whats the name of the track, any1 know?
    Also coming from a band bkground, I know it isnt easy to record sound clips unless you have proper gears... I had nightmare getting the right vocal in the past lol

    Also
    Hoogs- Acts Of Terror

    uses that sample aswell. im sure there's been a few tunes that have that george bush sample in it.

    Its not just the quality of the sample if u record it yourself. tv and film producers invest so much money in having specific background textures and effects running through the film. altho not clearly apparent in the sample it always has that tv film sample sound due to this
