This was full of facts that I didn't know, like The Beatles used sampling!

Thanx for sharing.

Great video - I've always had a deep appreciation for well executed sampling, strong emphasis on well executed.

Like Mario said - The Beatles incorporating sampling is news to me! Good find, thanks for sharing.

Of course the Beatles used sampling of tape. Nonetheless it was the same concept

For those interested, over the weekend I scored a pristine no scratches copy of De La Soul’s “Three Feet High and Rising”, considered to be one of the pinnacle’s if not THE pinnacle of the use of sampling in hip hop.

Paid $0.49 plus tax

It is a masterpiece.

Wow, never thought I'd see De La Soul get the spotlight on these forums. You are right - that is a phenomenal album. If you're interested in that kind of 'sound' that is heavily sample-based, I'd recommend checking out DJ Shadow's album 'Endtroducing.' It is 100% sample-based and oh my goodness, the new life he breathes into old recordings is borderline genius.

Huge cosign on "Three Feet High and Rising" for sure - one of those hip-hop albums that even people not even into rap typically appreciate when I share it with them.

While people immediately associate sampling with Hop Hop, other genres have also used sampling as the video says.
A great example of that is the album "If 60's were 90's" by Beautiful People. This album contains new music created using Jimi Hendrix samples.

Define Samples
Prerecorded snippets from other sources?
Just saying, by that definition Dark Side of the Moon could be described as using samples.
Much like many other projects from that era

I tend to think of 'Samples' as more digital based/implemented but that's just me.
Your definition may vary.

Actually, Dark Side Of The Moon is one of the albums cited in the video.

The +++ Mellotron +++ uses samples.

Again, I tend to think of samples as digital based.
The Mellotron is obviously not digital ..
Hollywood has used prerecorded tape snippets since the 30's.

I agree sampling is nothing new. I've written lot's of songs totally from samples. What I really found interesting is that because of the sampling from the hip hop era it created a revenue stream for artists who had their music used in new recordings. Grandmaster Flash used Nile Rogers and CHIC for their massive hit. Some artists realized revenue beyond what they ever earned from their hit records back in the day. I remember looking at a documentary of the Delfonics where they only received about $1,000 from the song "La La Means I love you". Jay Z used the song in a multi platinum album and the royalties went through the roof. Made them all rich men. Love this topic !!

Band-in-a-Box® - What People Are Saying...

Wow, check out the latest feedback from Band-in-a-Box® users!

"I have one song I've been torturing over to get the sound right for quite some time and I merely keyed in the chords and what BB generated is awesome. Just what I hoped that song would sound like. What had taken me months to get right (and couldn't), the program could do in about an hour - AMAZING!"

"Great Ear Training Exercises! And I love that that you can set the tempo to whatever you choose. It's great for learning a tune!"

"A very good and easy to use musical program!"

"It's amazingly easy to use! Write a song? No problem! Add background sound track to a video? No problem! Put notes on a staff and have BB make up a chord progression and tell what key you are in? No problem! Start with a chord progression and have BB make a melody line? No problem!"

"Still the best practice tool I have found, great for running lines, improvising over and really helpful for working on song writing ideas as well! Good for beginners, and the more musical skill and knowledge you have the more you will get out of the software."

"I create demo songs with Band-in-a-Box, it helps me to get my ideas across to my engineer!"

"Been using Band-in-a-Box for years. Outstanding product from a great company!"

"It's like buying a Musical History Jukebox. It comes with probably 3000 styles and is like hiring session musicians to play rhythm with you, they even have soloists! It introduces you to so many types of rhythms that you other wise would know nothing about. "

"Paul McCartney said you gotta have a great band behind you. Well, Band-in-a-Box is my band."

"It's as easy as typing in the chords, choosing your style, instruments, etc., and off you go! Learning the tune? You can slow it down while you work on it then speed it up. My favorite analogy is a good chess program, which will play at your speed and level and is eternally patient!"

"I love my Band in a box, it does so much! Besides all the RealTracks and song ideas, it's a great tool to stay sharp with your licks. Social distancing got you down? Can't jam with friends? Pick out any song and go to the mixer button, there you can mute any instrument that's playing so you can jump right in and play along!"

"I love it. I'm a drummer, and Band-in-a-Box really keeps me on my toes!"

"The DAW plugin is really great. Trust me on this. I use it with Studio One.

"This is how I've been able to gig solo for the past 20 years. Band-in-a-Box is the great equalizer for us none rhythm players."

"Wouldn't want to be without it! One of the best things I bought in my life. Simple as that."

"As a songwriter I really love to work with Band-in-a-Box. The only limitation is your own creativity."

"I've used Band-in-a-Box for 25 years and thanks to this program and the advice of PG Music staff I've written over 100 songs. It's great software and amazing help to me as a musician. CONGRATS!!!"

Thank you for all the amazing feedback!
