Putting loops or samples that you find on the net into your song? -.- I'm not talking about a whole song made out of loops though.

Ya, but if the people posting the samples say you have permission using it in a song, you should have no problems.

It says on the website that they are free to use - . - And asks you to put your e-mail in for free downloads. Is that alright?

Yeah, I'd trust Maus to give Sampling guidelines.

Sampling is done EVERY. DAY.

It's not that you use loops, but what you use, and how you use it, that is the part everyone seems to forget.

How do people get away with it?
1. Ensure the pieces you use are authorized. That's vital. Only an idiot uses copyrighted material.
2. Find out a different way to utilize it other then just slapping it on where everyone can tell it's a sample.

How about this, if the program you use is free to anyone in the first place, is using the samples provided in the program still illegal? If you need to know or check, I use Beaterator.

Rhetorical question.

But your answer is yes.

Newgrounds really doesn't care about simple things like that though. I mean, look at the whistle flash that pops up hundreds if not thousands of times daily. I have strong confidence that DJ Aligator Project in no way authorized that, but also, probobly doesn't care in the least. So long as you don't attract too much attention with a recycled clip, nobody will really care.

Note: Lots of people in this thread like to look smart and technical, but take it from me, this is Newgrounds, relax.

The internet is NOT serious business.

Just to clear up confusion, sampling also refers to when you bind each note on a keyboard to a different sound (normally different notes of the same instrument). That's completely allowed, and most music software does it for you.
