Yes it does, if you're interested you could look out for some sounds that were made on things like the Akai S series samplers or indeed the Fairlight CMI synthesizer. Also the Emulator samplers, one of which was used in Ferris Bueller's Day Off or in earlier Depeche Mode albums. In latter years manufacturers learned how to manipulate samples via hardware and many used a wavetable ( PPG Waveterm / Korg Wavestation ) or samples / classical sound generation methods ( Roland D-50 / Roland JD-800 ).

It also depends on how well a sample was done in the first place and where its loop points are set. You can hear some horrible looping sounds throughout the Amiga world, still that's what we had and that's the history.
