This is how the professionals do it and some non-professionals as well. In any event, these are videos of some people making beats. They tell you what equipment they're using and what they're doing as they're making the beat (how they're manipulating the samples etc). Oh yea, if you absolutely despise sampling, please refrain from commenting about it here. Thx http://malefactor.org/beatmakingvideos/ I'm still trying to get the Just Blaze one. I'll bump this whenever I find it. Enjoy.
