i'm on the 303

set your delay settings with plenty of feedback, have your EXT on so effects are applied to incoming signal

put a record on your turntable and place the stylus for a split second at random places on the vinyl while its spinning.

turn the feedback right down and then up again
magic happens

you can come up with interesting rythmical patters or soundscapes, good material for your library.

WARMTH! Still had to cut a little bit of the 404 lo-fi's brightness afterwards though. Dunno what you guys usually do but that shit kills me sometimes, I wish I had a 202 only to run through the final mix. Still to find a 404 recipe for the 202 lo-fi :(

saturation is good when you got excessive brillance, your're totally on the right way. i keep with me old 4track recorders or old crappy recorders for that aim; but to be honest there are also some vst that do the trick.
ps
great photo!

I use all the onboard sounds on a casio dg-20 guitar thru a vox wah pedal and a digitech whammy pedal to create all my samples. As for composing music, start dancing and go from there! moving to the music really helps you know where you want to go with the song.

You guys care to share your technique with these? I have one lying around I used a few times for field recording/sampling old tapes but I never messed much w/ pitch or using in a bigger sense

No secret, just a tip for slicing using a PC..

I will take a sample I'd like slices of (usually one that will have 12+ samples).
Step 1&2 are optional, use any software you like to add cue/slice points.
1. I use Cool Edit Pro or put it into Fruity Slicer to chop it up.
2. Save that processed WAV with the CUE points.

Then, in FL Studio:
3. Load the processed CUE'd WAV into Fruity SliceX.
4. "Export Regions" -> "For sampler use"
----- this will export each slice as its own WAV file ----
5. Load these on to your SP memory card
6. Use the Import feature on your SP.

When chopping on the PC you could speed up that process by using ReCycle.
