As part of their Rubber Tracks program, Converse has just launched a huge online library of high-quality, royalty-free samples for artists to use in their music completely free of charge. Right now there are 10, 000 contributions from 125 artists, and that number is set to keep on growing.
The recordings come courtesy of the Converse Rubber Tracks studio in Brooklyn and various pop-up studios around the world, where upcoming musicians can record for free. The Sample Library is an extension of that creative freedom, allowing any producer with an internet connection to build a bank of samples from a huge cross-section of genres and spark new, creative ideas.
A bunch of producers have already made tunes using the Indaba Music-powered Sample Library, including RJD2, Com Truise, Obey City and Shigeto. You can check out the results before you grab the samples yourself and get creating. Click play below to get a look inside the Rubber Tracks studio and see how these samples came to be.
