LOL! My stereo has always picked that " sample" up! I thought it was part of the song 4 all this time, u learn something new every day! Had no idea it was a sample probably due 2 the fact that it blends in with Prince's style of having alot of background vocalizing in his songs & the fact that it rhymes with car! It definately fits where he placed it, wouldn't have known if i hadn't opened this thread!lol

Sample or no, how is it not part of the song?

I mean't that i thought it was all Prince's, like i said i didn't know that a sample was used in this song, says nothing about it in the acknowledgments in the booklet! The song would have still been the same with or without it. It's just a word!smile

Prince once tried 2 change his name 2 a symbol so that ur'e mother couldn't find him in the phonebook!

Thanks for solving this mystery. It's also used in a Jean-Michel Jarre track (sounding the same as on Lovesexy), so I wondered where the sound originally came from.

I've known this for a while, but I'll tell you that being a HUGE Zappa fan,

the day I found out that the sound in the Prnice songs was off of

Uncle Meat I was a little blown away.

Does anyone know if there are any more connections to Prince & Zappa?

I remember reading somewhere I think it was Bobby Z talking about

when Prince broke up The Revolution that Prince wanted to get in to

music more like Zappa. I don't know if that was Bobby's describing the

situation or if Prince was actually influenced in some was by FZ at the time.

I could see something like the instrumentation of Play In The Sunshine

maybe being influenced by Zappa.

hmmm

Think I found the train sound effect right at the end of CTP, it sounds like the Cabasa Fairlight sample slowed down with added effects...God this sounds really anal...

- did I just mention God & anal in the same sentence??

I wouldn't say that it's a Zappa connection more than a Fairlight CMI connection even though the original sample comes from Zappa. When the Fairlight became avaiable to Prince he used the shit out of it, I wouldn't be surprised if he used every preset!

I created a Fairlight sample library, keymaped and all, for Native Instruments Kontact sampler and have run across many sounds in many Prince songs. Housequake toms, If I Was Your Girlfriend strings and many others.

He was just using the latest and coolest technology at the time like how ATWIAD has the Yamaha DX-7 all over it or Lovesexy has the Roland D-50 all over it.

He was just using gear, not specifically tyring to sample Zappa or the guy that created the Fairlight samples dog, yup, La, La, La, He, He, Hee dog bark was the first sample created for the Fairlight library, it was the creators own dog he used.

Right at the start of this spoken word bit:

Its usually pitched up or down on the Prince songs.

You will recognize it instantly

COOL! I have always wondered where the "Bizarre" is from. First noticed it after Bob George. Never knew it was on Parade! And it was sort of chanted on All My Dreams.

according to Princevault 'others here with us' uses many samples from the sample set but maybe not this sample.

interesting thread! I can hear it in 1:37 CTP, always thought of it as being a wave sound of water.

Then I jumped to that link, I see a song called Tibet, NEVER heard or read about that. Have to look that 1 up...

What do you mean it's not in the computer?

I'll save you some time: It's not circulating.

If Kore player is compatible with Kontakt 2 Sampler then it should. I would have to look into the Kore player.
