We expect higher quality works from our sellers, so please be mindful when choosing which samples to upload.
You may only upload loops and/or sounds that are longer than 4 seconds in duration. Short one-shot samples (e.g. 808, snare, etc.) will be removed by our staff.
File Name Structure.
Before uploading, we recommend structuring your file names like this: "Name_C#m_100.wav". Using this structure will allow our system to automatically fill in your Key and Tempo, saving you time. For example, it'll interpret "C" as C major, "Cm" as C minor, "Cbm" as C flat minor, and "C#m" as C sharp minor.
Must Be Original.
Do not upload sounds or melodies that are not your own. We don't tolerate copyright infringement on our platform.
Files must be in .WAV format. 44.1 kHz/24-bit samples are preferable.
Royalty vs. Royalty-Free.
You'll have the option to require clearance on your samples if the buyers song is distributed by a major label. If the buyers song is not distributed by a major label but exceeds 1 million streams, you'll retain rights to a 15% royalty. See Terms & Conditions for more information.
Please be selective when deciding whether samples should be Royalty-Free or not. A simple drum or synth loop probably doesn't justify a royalty, but an intricate melody that you think could play a major role in a song's success would be a good example of a Royalty sample. Of course, this is subjective, and should be decided on a case-by-case basis.
Packs vs. Samples.
You'll have the option of uploading either sample packs or independent samples. You can upload samples one at a time or in bulk. Keep in mind, samples only show up in the sounds interface, they wont appear in your packs carousel or on our Packs page.
Upload MIDI files.
Spice up your sample packs and increase your revenue by uploading MIDI files. You can now attach MIDI files to your samples in the "Edit Sounds" page. Users will have the option to download either the sample (for 1 credit) or the MIDI (for 2 credits).
Uploading attractive sample pack covers is important to us and your potential customers. We'll be more likely to feature your sample pack on our "What's New" column if you upload an aesthetically pleasing pack cover. If you can't design high quality artwork yourself, reach out to our team for help at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please do not upload 3D or packaged-style artwork.
Accurate Sound Data.
When uploading your samples, please be accurate when inputting your data. Inputting the correct Tempo, Key, Genre, Instrument, and Tags will help users find your sample.
You'll earn $0.25 for every .WAV file download and $0.50 for every MIDI file download. Once your account exceeds $20 in sales, you can request a payout to your PayPal account. To withdraw your earnings, click "Request Payout" in the Seller Account page. Payments are distributed every Friday.
