Do you guys prefer using drum samples/breaks or synthesis?
Like if you had to only do one or the other forever?

I do both, but if I had to choose, it would be samples. Unless they invent a synth that really sounds like an acoustic drum, I can't figure how I could deal with only using synthesized drums. I would need to probably switch into minimal house & techno or something.

Sounds way better imo, a lot easier to make it sound good

Definitely samples, I like to grab about 16 or so samples that I like and make a kit out of them in Battery 4 then spend a decent amount of time making beats with them. I wouldn't want to bog myself down with synthesizing 12-16 different percussion sounds every time I want to make a tune. Would just make the beat making process take wayyyyyyy longer, and I already spend a pretty good amount of time creating beats with samples.

I like samples more because its just easier to drop in a finished product that doesnt need much tweaking, so when my creative juices get flowing, I dont get stuck.
That being said, I like to synthesize and layer samples in their own project and then bounce them to .wav to use in my music.

There can't really be an either or, but real drums all the way. With 808's on top.
