but how many people actually put that much effort into finding samples? my
general approach is to just interact with what is already staring at me...
i personally don't go on shopping sprees to find samples. ok, maybe if i
have an idea and i really need a certain recording that i don't already
have i might download or borrow it or...

but i'm curious, do others spend countless hours searching for sounds?
