Sample Sessions is a series from Dancing Astronaut meant to shine a brighter light on the producer community. Each volume will guide producers towards some of the freshest sample packs, plugins, FX, and presets out there.

This week, Splice released the Converse Sample Library, which is a collection of high-quality sounds recorded during 50+ studio sessions at Converse Rubber Tracks studios with industry leading artists such as Com Truise, Dev Hynes (aka Blood Orange), Soul Clap, Machinedrum, Ryan Hemsworth, members of the Tonight Show Band, and many more.

The pack contains a lot of authentic, live sounds from electronic, jazz, alternative rock, and various percussion recording sessions, great for melody inspiration, ambiance, and a real drum vibe. There are specialty packs for horns, violin, guitar, bass, piano, keys, flute, sax, and plenty of analog synths.

On the vocal side of things, there’s soul, R&B, gospel, funk, blues, indie, rock, and even talkbox funk. Sounds from Australian rock to Ethiopian music make it in this eclectic bundle of sounds from all over the world. For those looking to liven up their audio, using royalty-free samples from professionals isn’t a bad start.

The video below is the creation story of Demi Lovato’s “Sorry Not Sorry.” It’s about how her producer, Oak Felder, made the main chord progression from an 808 off Splice’s Lex Lugar kit. Click HERE to start a 14-day free trial and start producing like the pros.
