This article represents the comparison and debate of specific sample methods which are rated according to the opinions of the majority in the Sparta Remix community.

From the community's perspective, sampling is a term that describes how an audio effect can be changed to form a "pitch" or "perc" sample. There are many programs and methods for sampling, but a lot of debates occur about whether some of these methods are "fake" or not.

From the community's perspective, a fake sample simply doesn't sound similar to the original, unedited sample. These are mostly avoided by people in the community as they usually sound bad according to the community. They are also considered dishonest ways of obtaining samples. This term is also used in the YTPMV community.
