making beats from scratch v. using loops has been debated for years now. the fact is, no matter what you come up with, someone prolly already has made the same beat just by pure coincidence. so it becomes a matter of efficiency. no one should use a loop w/o making it "their beat" somehow using variety of means anyways. why spend all that time making beats from scratch when its just being redundant? i would nvr feel like a producer is slacking or less skilled cuz they use loops. just more efficient.
yeah ive heard alot of ppl argue about that
i agree with most ppl that u shouldn cheat and built ur own libraries of loops and reuse them as much as you want, but u shouldn use a loop if u r not aware how to create it urself if u had to.
obviously its sort of pointless to start making an amen from scratch but u know thats how new ideas might come around
Must agree there, DB sample packs are great. I only have Vol. 2 right now. I was lacking tambourine's and Danny Byrd's pack has a few. I also like Nu-Tone's, they've got great shuffles.
The snares are a great starting point in both packs, I must say I thought the Vengeance packs had great snares but these fit WAAAAY better especially for liquid and such.
The Nu-Tone has some great piano and rhodes loops. I think Stunna even used one of those piano loops in one of his tunes.
But yeah so far I must say Hospital's packs are solid, they don't have nearly as much samples as the Vengeance packs but they make up for that with sheer awesomeness. Also, Hospital's are reasonably priced too.
Yeah I couldn't place my finger on the tune, I knew it was a BD regular's. The particular sample I'm thinking of was actually in one of your tunes lol, Document 1. Melancholy Piano I believe is what the sample's called.
Document 1 is one of my favorites from you, I feel silly for not figuring it out earlier. Someone slap me.
