How to use: Tha Index
Search Tha Index for a phrase to sample or scratch?
1. Start at the front search page of the website and enter a keyword or phrase and click on the Search button or press Enter on your keyboard.
2. After your search returns, you will now see colums with information for: Artist, Said, Song, Location, Notes or Album, from these colums you can choose the phrase that suits your track.
3. Read the Album Title. You can check here to see if you have the material in your collection. If not, you can check other Artists catalog for simular phrases.
4. If you have the material (Vinyl, Cassette, CD or MP3), read the Location section to find out exactly which part of the track the phrase islocated in.
NOTE: This is really handy due to the fact that you don't have to waste time listening to the entire song, just locate the: Intro, Verse, Bridge, Chorus or End.
5. Once you have found the phrase you wish to use, load it into your sampler (DJs will cue for a scratch) and you are ready!!!.
NOTE: Depending on the BPM (Beats Per Minute) of the song, you may have to adjust the pitch of the sampled phrase to fit.
W/T vs. D/O
6. After you search, you will see a column that is called NOTE. The NOTE column contains either a W/T (With Track) or a D/O (Drop Out). W/T means that if you use this sample, not only will you use the vocal phrase, but the sound of the track drums and instruments will also be included. This will not matter to some users, but if you want a clean (accapella) sample, then look for entries with the D/O, this will mean that the phrase you sample or scratch will not have any additional sound behind it.
We strongly suggest that you seek legal advice before attempting to sample/record any of the selections listed within this website.
You assume full responsibility for the selection and actual usage of this website to achieve your intended results.
