It looks like 2018 is going to be the year when loop and sample packs subscription services will go mainstream. 2017 was almost there, with the huge success of Splice (we highly recommend it!) and the introduction of Noiiz and Loopcloud (both coming up with interesting new features, stay tuned!) but this news might clearly change everything…
Native Instruments has just announced the launch of Sounds.com, a similar platform based on content provided by popular artists (BT, Jamie Lidell, etc.) and ‘over 200 trusted suppliers’, such as Looploft, MVP Loops and Symphonic Distribution and NI themselves.
The Sounds platform allows you to browse through over 20,000 kicks or 100 hours of hi-hat loops (if you really wanna do that!) with a powerful search engine and easy sorting by type, key, BPM, and genre. Then you can download à la carte, exactly like you’ve been doing on similar platforms so far.
Sounds.com is only available for US users at the moment (at an introductory price of $9.99 per month), and it’s in beta version. We’ll have more on this soon.
