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 !!

Upgrading to Band-in-a-Box® 2020 is Easy!

Did you know... anyone who has owned a previous version of Band-in-a-Box® is entitle to upgrade pricing - you do not need to have your old version installed!

Maybe you used to own the Windows version, but you now have a Mac... that's not a problem either!
(or if you owned the Mac version, and now you have a Windows computer)

In both cases, you would purchase from the "Upgrade from 2018 or earlier or crossgrade" row here for a new Mac version, or here if you want the newest Windows version. Just need to upgrade your 2019 version? Use the "Upgrade from 2019/2020" row.

When you purchase your upgrade from either of these rows, you will receive a complete installation - just follow the steps of the setup, and your Band-in-a-Box® will be ready to use!

PG Music Inc. shopping cart accounts were not required to purchase from our website prior to October 29, 2014. With that in mind, you may have to create an account in order to upgrade - that's OK! You'll still be entitled to upgrade pricing.
