I don't acknowledge Zomboy's type of music.

This is the same guy that sampled Skrillex midrange in his tunes?

Nothing new here.

It cracks me up that people who spend hours and hours every week making music that, let's be honest, is pretty damn same-ish and whose history is rooted in sampling, even care about this.

"guy released a sound pack" "zomboy used the samples" Isn't that the point? What's next, scheduling both your hands so they get an equal amount of wanking practice in this week?

How is using samples "copying"...
As if 90% of the people on here don't use Vengeance Samples, guess we will call that copying as well..

Well, the shitty-ness of Vengeance taken as a given, we all use sample packs. I just don't get it. Even the whole sampling Skrillex's mid-range...all those sounds basically sound the same anyway. Like all the reeses and hoovers in DnB basically sound the same anyway. There is just a lot of same-ness going on in electronic music. Always has been. Lets all stop pretending. What's the difference if the end product is good? If you can cut up a bunch of Skrillex's songs and come up with something new by rearranging that, go for it.

Personally, I don't give many shits about being an amazing sound designer. The closer I listen to the music I love the most, in all cases, is the part that blows my mind and keeps me coming back is the arrangement 90%. 10% of the time some one comes up with a cool sound that I want to hear over and over.

Everything is a saw wave /thread.

Vengeance is actually good as long as you get creative and layer, chop, edit, process to personalize.

And yeah I don't get the point, everyone uses samples that they didn't synthesize or record themselves? Who the fuck cares.

All the producers that get hung up on synthesizing their own drum kits that end up sounding exactly like all the other synthesized drum kits crack my shit up. "It's cheating if I use a drum sample". Have fun synthesizing snares for for two hours, I'll just use my samples and be on my way. If you are going for some crazy Eskmo style claps/snares I get it...but to just make a regular old snare :roll:

I try to synthesize my own snares so that if I ever make it big, and in an interview they ask me how I got that snare, I have a better answer than "I just ripped it a from Koan Sound track" :cornlol:

I don't approve sampling sounds from released tracks, but using stuff from sample packs is what sample packs are there for, but melodies and basses in 'em... kinda stupid IMO.

Isn't sound design a part of music production as well? I actually love making my own sounds.
I would even learn synthesizing drums but I'm too lazy to do it. It's sometimes too hard to find the "perfect" kick/snare and sometimes easier to make it yourself (as I heard).
Depth is a delusion, the deeper you look the less you see.

If you listen to my tracks they are usually the same kick :) I just edit it as needed. Don't remember where I got it though...

So what if people use samples/sample from songs.
This isn't really a new thing.

Heck check out these guys songs;

Soundcloud

They are mostly samples. :lol:

Look I'm not saying sampling is wrong or anything but there are different situations you can use it in. Big difference with using samples for kicks and snares than to looping a bit from an old track.

Heck look at Daft punk and Pogo. Both are sampling genius but still keep to there own style and make something original out of it .

Unlike other producers who make songs out of one shot basses and using kicks with out layering or Eqing them out a bit.

Personally I don't mind when producers use there same old kicks and snares. When you play live drums you end up playing the same kick and snare anyway. You can tell when a producer takes time to make his drums with resampling, Eqing, layering different drums together, unlike using just plain old sample pack drums.

Zomboy is a solid producer in my opinion but seriously need to be more original and stem away from his repetative and washed out stuff now.

Just wanted to show another instance of him sort of cutting corners in his song by using other peoples work.

I'm too much of a perfectionist and have to much self pride in to "try" and make something original and different. Rather than throw some overplayed shit together and call in a song.
