Native Instruments, the manufacturer of software and hardware for digital music production and DJing, today unveils Sounds.com, a new online platform for loops, samples, and sound packs for music creators of all genres.
The Sounds.com beta launches today exclusively in the US. Customers can try it now with a free selection of loops and samples, or go Pro and subscribe to the full library at a special introductory price of $9.99 per month.
The platform already hosts more than 500,000 royalty-free sounds – from orchestral scoring to pop, rock, and trap – and new releases are added daily. Current sounds include loops and sample content from Native Instruments’ acclaimed Maschine Expansions – plus exclusive content from over 200 creators, including leading suppliers such as The Loop Loft, MVP Loops, and Symphonic Distribution. Curated collections from the Sounds.com team provide ready-made inspiration to producers of all skill levels and genres.
Simplicity and ease-of-use are central to the Sounds.com experience: All loops and samples are available to browse and preview, with no sign-up required; sounds are tagged and easily sortable by genre, key, BPM, and other attributes; and search functionality is powered by Native Instruments’ own MIR (Music Information Retrieval) algorithms, which helps users find exactly what they need, when they need it.
After companies like Noiiz and Splice, Native Instruments is going to compete with them.
