Uploading loops?

Recommended Posts

Is there a certain popular site people go to for uploading loops? I have a few I want to 'donate' to the internet. Something clean and accessible like Freesound but for loops?

Why not SoundCloud? Easy to preview, and you can just make the original .wav files downloadable - even use a Creative Commons license.

Sure, it's not loop-specific, but you can put enough meta-information in there - tag it as "127 bpm" if you wanted to - to make it easily findable/browsable.

Soundcloud isn't a very good platform for getting discovered though. Plus I already have a Soundcloud and my subscribers, however few, expect full tracks when I post things.

I wish Freesound was less lame and allowed these sort of things :/

lol wut

What kind of "discovery" are you hoping for exactly? "Pay me $3K if you want this beat?"

Then make another account. Several producers have more aliases than sharks have teeth, how is this different?

No, I said donate. I just want them somewhere where people actually look for loops.

OK, but no one will ever find it unless I promote it, and I don't want to promote. That's why Soundcloud is not ideal. I just want it "out there."

I just thought there would be a big, popular place for free beats, not full compositions, but maybe not.

I always thought electronic artists consider the use of pre-made loops the ultimate sin? :razz:

Loops can be used in the background to compliment video or whatever, not just producing,
