Anyway, enough of my life story.
Basically i have been having trouble being creative and writing tunes, more specifically the intros, i'm pretty adequate as far as writing the drops, but the intros and melody lines always have me stumped, i was watching a video shunning Zomboy the other day because he used a melody line sample from a vengeance pack, and i'd done the same not too long ago when making a new song, and it got me thinking? Is it cheating to use samples? Should everything be your own? Making the synths from scratch with Massive or FM8? Making each drum your own? I feel so guilty about putting a pre-made melody line in my song now, should I feel this way?

There's a video on youtube with Martin Garrix going over how he made Animals. Most of the track is presets, loops, vengeance samples as well as samples he ripped from other tracks. That song became one of the most popular tracks of 2013, shun him all you like but he made a tonne of money from using sample packs. It just goes to show that it's not what you use, it's how you use it.
At the end of the day if the music is good and you haven't broken any copyright laws it should be fine. You might cop some flack from people but I'd just ignore em.

When you are making seven figures annually, you'll be paying someone or a team of people to write and engineer the whole song for you anyway, so you can go to big industrial parties and fist pump in front of a crowd for a few hours. Don't sweat the details dude.

Using samplers? This is totally okay.
I use only samplers nowdays. I hate softsynths and I have no money to buy a hardware one , so I use samples from hw synths.
