Sampling made easier…
The game changer is here. There’re a handful of websites that allow you to download and use sample loops such as, drum loop, 808 loop or even a hat loop. Unlike those, TrackLib offers the opportunity to actually sample & license musical recordings. The key factor to the site / software allows its users to make purchasing licenses available for the “average” producer easier. Hip-Hip elite producers, Statik Selektah, Prince Paul, Erick Sermon, Hank Shocklee, QuestLove and others have come together to share stories of how they cleared samples and endorse the Swedish company, Tracklib’s, a new service that makes clearing samples easier.
The online marketplace where producers can search, find, purchase and license samples from thousands of original recordings. Some tracks start at $1.99 while other can go up to $500 or more. A statement from the company says,
“What iTunes did for downloads and Spotify did for streaming, Tracklib is on track to do for music sampling.”
The service while it hasn’t launched yet, brags of a catalog of over 50,000 tracks and it continues to grow with a selection from all genres of music.
