hey how do people turn off their pi?
Just simply pull out their micro usb cable?

Yes. Before that, I turn down volume if plug in an amp.

I heared that turning the rb off without the sudo shutdown -h now command
can cause problems with the sd card.

The SD is remounted read-only at startup, so it will not be damaged. You can do similar thing with the USB stick so you can have stage capable samplerbox.

You can even load a sample, unplug the usb stick, change the sample on your PC, plug the usb stick again,and load the new sample for testing.
