To celebrate the great collection of Creative Commons tracks on SoundCloud, we’re holding a remix contest… CC style! So in the spirit of “some rights reserved”, upload your best CC samples and loops and then get remixing them into brand new pieces. It’s simple:
1. The sample repository can be found here. Get samples from others and upload your own! Make sure you make them download-able, add the CC-Attribution license and tag them properly (this is key!).
People are uploading more and more reusable samples and we’re really excited about the potential this brings. Our hope is to see more interesting collaborations and creative use of the available content. Bring your talents as field recorder, sound designer, guitar shredder, vocalist, or beat creator and join the creative commons community by sharing Your sounds.
Here’s a few user- and group highlights for some inspiration on sample sharing plus a great guide on how to easily do sample uploads yourself!
