"Tracklib - a record store with music for sampling - NOW LIVE!"


          

Hey!

Since I got so much beta support from all of you last year I thought I'd let everyone know that we're finally launched.

Tracklib is a record store with music for sampling. All tracks here can be cleared for release in minutes.

Check out our how it works video here:

And of course, visit the site and start digging:
https://www.tracklib.com

Let me know if you have any questions or if I can help you in any way.

Doesnt a pre-curated collection of sources defeat purpose of digging?

As someone who used to work in music licensing - this is crazy!
Basically inventing a whole new way of doing this and going around traditional organizations (Harry Fox, CMRRA, etc.)
Seems like this would have been a lot of work to get off the ground??!?
Congrats! This seems like a bit of a game changer.

We really hope it is and think we have a good idea. Now we just need to get people to start using it.

No hate, just trying to understand the appeal

Sure, the pre-curated collections does defeat the purpose - if finding new stuff is your main goal. However, 95% of our tracks haven't even been listened to by anyone on the site - so if you just start searching yourself with the advanced parameters you'll soon find stuff that is unique.

And we hope to have hundreds of thousands of tracks soon (currently at 60,000!) so the ones we've picked in collection is just a little taste of our whole library.

I normally don't sample as far as chopping or looping pre-existing melodies or rhythms but that service may be good for getting one note sounds. Might make me want to even try my hand at sampling.

and I hope it will have legs moving forward because it will give producers the option of pre-clearing things ahead of time before placement. That alone makes it easier to do business and be creative the way you'd like to.

I respect the intent and my comments are meant to be constructive. Why not just provide a one-click (or two or three) way to clear a sample that the user has dug him or herself? A simple one page site where you fill out a form, maybe upload the sample, and then your service quickly curates/facilitates the clearing process. Why try to be a music curator and sample clearance house at the same time? For sample based beats, the culture has always favored producers who find their own sounds, so that should be left alone imho. The only appeal of this is the quick and easy clearance aspect. Why not focus on that exclusively? Like being a DistroKid for sample clearance... that would be dope. But whenever i see curated collections, i immediately look the other way... i'm trying to find the records you don't have lol.

Well, the answer to that is simple - what we're doing just wouldn't work for licensing just one track. The only reason we can have the licensing be this simple is that we're licensing large amounts of tracks at once. The actual work involved to get a label to sign off is usually months - if not years. We can't spend that time trying to get a specific song for someone.

So far we're close to 100 labels from all over the world signed, and the number of tracks we have is not small - more than 60000 tracks - and we hope to make it 10 times that in a year. So there is an opportunity to dig for stuff noone else has found here. We just got a _lot_ of chinese music, for example.

If you want to keep digging for old vinyl, please do. I still definitely do myself. This isn't going to end that. We're just offering a decent alternative when you want to make sure that what you dig for can be licensed.
