To all concerned, I think due to the fact that this is an online collaboration tool the creators are concerned about liability for copyright infringement. There's no "but it's for my private use" because this is an online collab community and I believe everything is accessible to everyone which is part of proving a claim for copyright infringement. Unfortunately there are copyright trolls out there who would exploit this. BTW - I may be completely off base here. Just trying to help.
It's not really helpful to open this discussion over and over again. There are clear laws and terms and conditions which prohibit sharing arbitrary samples. We don't make the rules, we just follow them. It's completely irrelevant if someone likes this or not.
Unless someone changes those laws and terms, nothing will change the outcome of this discussion.
You call this a collaboration tool but you're so terrified of copyright infringement that you're not allowing artists to collaborate? I'm an attorney. This seems bonkers. Acid Pro has a MASSIVELY ROBUST collaboration community that allows upload / download of a huge library of loops and no restrictions on importing MP3 / WAV files. Unfortunately not useable on my chromebook as far as I know. The GOOD NEWS is that this is an AWESOME TOOL. Thank you!!!!!!
Can you point me to that "huge library of loops" that has been uploaded by the community?
Also I didn't find a tutorial explaining this upload - do you know any video?
How do you import samples into your track
Can't put this new track in to my mp3
I am afraid, not yet. We are working on a new concept for sample-upload that will allow uploading longer samples provided that we can be 100% sure that there is no copyright infringement. When it comes to uploading samples from sample-packs - even for private use - there still might be legal issues. The situation on samples is quite complicated. Anyway you should really read
What samples can I upload?
Making a beat is much more rewarding than just playing a beat from a sample-pack!
No but im not adding it i just wanna keep it for myself surely thier is a way i can add somthin longer than 30 sec's that is only accecible by me.
You cannot upload samples you bought somewhere on audiotool. You just bought the license from audioblocks to use them in your projects but not upload them on a platform that makes them freely accessible to everybody. Please read
What samples can I upload?
To provide minimal copyright protection we restrict the sample duration to 30 seconds. That is why your sample gets rejected.
