    I'm short on money and time to be digging, so I do what most everyone does and get a bunch of songs in Frostwire (same as Limewire but Pro and free). Yeah, e-digging. Personally, I like heavy sampling, but it's just my taste. I don't like to use snares and kicks from packs at least I don't have another choice. Melodies and basslines and that stuff, I like to do it all with samples. I try to make most of the samples so they're not recognized. You know, the whole copyright thing ;)

    I find most of the samples by listening to lots of different songs, types of music, and music that has a sound you're looking for. Like most here, I also search in the net and see what other producers use and some tips. And believe or not, I've managed to extract a couple of decent basslines from Lindsay Lohan songs and songs. Just heard the song by chance and bang, got the idea.

    I've even found some samples from www.archive.org They got public domain stuff from the 30's and 40's. Most of it is useless, but some people could find use for it.

    Cheers.

    i usuallly try to find something with dramatic strings building up then breakdown or just maybe knowing an old song that not that many people who have though to used theres so many generes of music with good samples some generes have good vocals as far as what there sayin and some have those great dramatic strings and there saying something meaningful that can basicallly make the title of at least the topic of the song

    i like anything from Kenny Rogers "The Gambler" that you gotta know when to hold em when to foldem is a hot street topic
    or Foreigner- "Love isnt always on time" is hot but i think Just Blaze played them out but anything From Oldies in the 50's -60's to Country to 70'-80's Rock any genre can have great Samples its all about the Ear and knowing how to do what you want with what you got...............................East Oakland Stand Up !!!!!!!

    hit the cheap record section, 1$ 2$ records, guarantee u can use any record.
    just a matter of using it prper.
    thats wat i do mostly, somtimes i get an old record coz its got a funky cova,
    u be suprised wat jems u can dig out from random shit and if its not working, chuk it in the slicer and u'll find it impossible to not work.
    at the same time theres nothing wrong with digital sampling, use everything possible.

    I did the opposite of what it sounds like a lot of people on here did, I used to e-dig, now I actually dig. I felt limited when I'd e-dig because I found myself only downloading shit that I knew. Once I started really digging I started finding all kinds of shit that I never heard of before, even some shit that big name people produced but didn't sing on. The $1 bins are my hangout, usually it's some shit that you've never heard of before, and even if you just straight up loop it, no one will probably know who it was because it was so whack no one listened to it.

    Here's a link to a video of Waajeed digging, the shop he goes to is a local spot in the suburbs of Detroit (Eastpointe, even though he says Roseville) that I've frequented a few times, I used to live right around the corner.

    Another good program for all you e-diggers out there is Soulseek, I've found a lot of rare shit on there.
