Hi Elina,

As you indicate in your question, there could be multiple sources your sample could be drawn from - if you are going to referenc the sample then you would be referencing the place that you drew it from - be it a website like YouTube or a piece of downloaded or recorded music from CD or MP4 or Soundcloud. Hopefully there is an example on this page that you can adapt but if not send me the information of what it is you have to reference and I'll take a look:
