I think everyone uses Splice these days, but I keep a strictly freegan approach to sample packs. There are lots of free packs of various drum machines if you search for them specifically, and is good to monitor for some occasional gems.

Legowelt has some cool free ones too for synths.

Oh yeah, definitely a lot of trash, but I've also found some gems on freesound (like the perfect air raid siren or whip sample).

I used to sample from Youtube, but the audio quality is just so low (although I guess better if you play back the video at the highest quality). Can be cool if it's just for dialogue or background texture, if that's the effect you're going for. Maybe vocals if they're heavily processed.

Thanks. I found Legowelt right after posting here. Definitely lots of cool sounds there.

I don’t really know what I’m going for yet. Everything I make right now sounds really flat and cheesy and derivative. Part of the “fun” of learning a new instrument.
