Sample Upload Temporarily Disabled

Due to massive copyright infringment, we are forced to redesign the sample upload process. On an average day, about 500 samples are uploaded. We do not have the capacity to review each upload manually. All samples except those from loopmasters (which are safe to use) have been set to invisible to avoid further redistribution. So, in the future, users wanting to upload their own samples will need to go through an identification process. This enables us to forward legal issues directly to them.

Sorry to our users who used the sample upload legitimately (e.g. by uploading their own vocals or instrument tracks), but current circumstances forced us to respond in the short term on this.

FAQ

Under what circumstances can I upload material produced by other artists?

  • the original material was released under a Creative Commons License
  • you got written permission from the original artist (see links above)

Can I upload sample packs I have paid for?

Please read the terms and conditions of the sample pack if redistribution is permitted.

Can I upload royalty free Sample packs?

Royalty free sample packs usually also include terms & conditions or a license. See if redistribution is allowed.

What will the identification process look like?

Our current plan looks like this: Before a user will be able to upload samples, they need to go through an identification process.

This will include:

  • providing real name and address
  • uploading photos of their ID (so that we can verify the supplied information is correct)
  • SMS verification

What will the Upload process look like?

  • For each sample, the uploader needs to provide information about the license (URL) and where the sample was obtained from.
  • The sample will then be reviewed by a moderator.
  • If we where able to verify the information, the sample will be approved. Otherwise, it will be rejected

We are also thinking about an easier workflow for users who want to upload their own vocals or instrument recordings.

I want to stay anonymous

  • You only need to identify yourself when you would like to upload your own samples
  • Your data will only be visible to the AT staff and cannot be publicly accessed
  • It will only be stored on our servers for a very short time period. After it was verified, it will be removed from the server and manually transfered to an offline storage (an external disk that is not connected to the internet)

      By no means. It'd cool if it was a sample website, which provided samples under a valid license, where you're allowed to re-distribute and share.

    And now Artists are incapable of showing their own works from other DAWs like FL without having to look like some barren thief
