sampling in hip hop

Ok so I can sample drums and use those, but I don't know much more than that about sampling. What are different things you do with your samples? I also don't know how to make bass presets for hip hop either, are those normally sampled too? It's kind of hard for me to identify whether or not I can sample something, unless I already heard someone else do it first. Looking through old music for loops is kind of like watching paint dry if you can't find any.

I'm no expert and don't

I'm no expert and don't sample to create beats but what I understand (and i may be way off)is one can use 8 bars and compliment it by adding or taking away sounds , speeding it up or slowing down by gaining clearance from the original composer of you intend on using it for commercial use. And or as long as some notes are different and it doesn't sound so much like the original and is not used commercially or for profit then you're ok. I'd play it safe and contact the composer out of respect. Or play around on the keys and create something you like then add more of your compositions until you're feeling it and make Art happen. Then download Caustic Guide take it apart and build something else ; )

I fully understand that

I fully understand that sampling is a quintessential part of hip-hop. Samples are looped into hooks almost as often as The Winstons. <-Which, I won't even refer to again. Just isolate the part of a song, movie, television show, or anything else that makes a noise and play with it. There are no set rules at all. One of the first songs I made was comprised of samples from the factory I used to work in. I turned the sound of a ball ping hammer hitting a quarter-inch thick sheet of steel into a drum kick. It just takes time, patience, and a willingness to explore. Point being, I feel as though only Dawghausebeats had previously responded because you weren't too specific when asking about samples. And, sampling is a large can of worms to open. Anything can be used. So turn what inspires you into something that feels how the sample makes you feel, or not feel.

Since I've, posted this, I

Since I've, posted this, I found a twilight zone sample, and it has a drum beat, but no bassline, and I sent it to my collab guy, so we should be able to figure something out, but I still don't know how to make a bass preset, and that'd be a good to know. Are those usually sampled too, or no? And if so, how?
