I wonder what that would look like?
I've just seen a show (see below) about this fellow Clyde Stubblefield (whose apparently the most samled "illegally" drummer in the world). He was James Brown's Drummer , (Hot as a chili in a Sahara dessert,......... and he's had more of his one and two bar break beat samples ripped off in more hip hop/ rap and dj jam songs than any other drummer in history. . Not to mention,...... He's also had quite a few of his sampled breaks used.......(I imagine legally)....... by quite a few big names as well, in their songs.
For whatever reason,....... this guy just evokes magic in his grooves.
Yet for all practical purposes, he's been paid pretty much almost nothing for his work.Yet he still gigs today down in the south with the same chops he's always had.
Wouldn't it be interesting if Spectrasonics got a hold of him and (and a few other greats) and sliced em and diced em into RMX Glory.........Forever inscribing his greatness into a true and legal, usable, sonicallly respectable musical instrument and creative template as only Spectrasonics can deliver. Wouldn't that be something!!!!
Just a thought.........check out this link.........
The show I saw was very interesting called "Copyright Criminal" Questioning the right of DJ's to Reuse Sampled Music for their songs:
