Sony Acid Pro - Recorded it into the program and edited the eq and pitch until I got it just where i wanted it to be.
Korg KP3 - Flipped the MIC switch on. Recorded a few tries with a few effects(LFO, Pan+Echo) re-looped it through the sample banks a few times with some more effects(Pitch, Distort, Vocoder) and saved them as .wav samples or just kept them in the KORG sample bank to trigger at any time.
VDJ - In essence, the same process can be done with virtual Dj as was completed with the Korg KP3. In the options for recording, make sure that the option for Mic+Line Recording is selected, so that once you want to record something with your mic input in the mix, it's actually picked up( I actually did a 2 hour set recording and thought my mic input was turned on, AWKWARD!!!! But i was able to edit out the silences later with ACID PRO and pop in announcements and effects before I put out the mixes to the masses).
Also, understand that before you even get into recording your samples, you have to be prepared to match them with your style/music. That may strongly determine your sample type in the area of which effects you're going to use, even down to what you'll say. A DJ Name sample can take me a minimum of 3 hours to do because of how I want it to sound; Decent quality, absolute clarity, and fitting to my style and the music that i'm playing at the time. For example, If playing Usher - Daddy's Home (Hey Daddy), why would i play a DJ CLU3 volumed shout out sample dropping my name IF that is not my style? Every one's style is different, consider what works for you...
P.S. - What's wrong with using a mic during live performances?
