What is a digital music sample?

In music, sampling is the act of taking a portion, or sample, of one sound recording and reusing it as an instrument or element of a new recording. This is typically done with a sampler, which can be a piece of hardware or a computer program on a digital computer. Sampling is also possible with tape loops or with vinyl records on a phonograph.

Sampling goes back to the Beatles and Pink Floyd, who used fragments of other songs. Modern-day sampling started in the South Bronx, where party D.J.'s in the 1970s would find a favorite chunk of music and blend two duplicate records to play that section over and over.

Often "samples" consist of taking an artist’s music and using it to build a new tune, for instance the use of the drum introduction from Led Zeppelin's "When the Levee Breaks" in songs by the Beastie Boys, Dr. Dre, Eminem, Mike Oldfield, Rob Dougan and Erasure. Other artists who has taken advantage of the art of sampling are Jay-Z sampling from Johnny Pate, Kanye West sampling from Elton John, Steely Dan, and German band Can and Disco D sampling from 50 Cent.

As sampling music has exploded in popularity, copyright laws have been enforced more regularly. Whenever music is sampled, the user has to get permission, or “clear” the sample with the original songwriters, the original performer and record label. The Music Producer Software contains over 3400 license-free and royalty-free digital music samples.

What are sample packs?

Sample packs are a compilation of music samples produced for the purpose of royalty free resale.  Check out the “Sample Store”“Sample Store” for more details on available sample packs in the following music genres: Hip Hop, Rap, Latin, Rock, Pop, Dance and Electronic. More coming soon!
