BandLab Sounds: Introducing Sample Editor

Late last year we launched BandLab Sounds, giving creators everywhere access to our extensive library of professionally created samples, free of charge, and free to use.

As our samples swell in numbers, with artists like Arabian Prince and partners like MusicTech contributing, we’ve seen thousands of downloads and more music being made with BandLab Sounds.

The next step in empowering artists to create music is to make the creative process even easier. On BandLab Sounds, that means giving you easier access to editing and manipulating each sample for your needs.

Introducing Sample Editor

With Sample Editor on BandLab Sounds, you can edit a sample to your liking before you download it. There’s no need to download a sample and edit it separately on BandLab or another DAW, then export it again. Everything you need is all in one place on BandLab Sounds. 

How to edit your samples

how to use Sample Editor

Using Sample Editor couldn’t be more straightforward. Simply browse BandLab Sounds for your favorite samples and then click on the Edit Sample icon on the far right of the sample (It’s the icon to the left of the download button.)

Once you’re in the Sample Editor, you can:

  1. Trim the sample
  2. Adjust the sample’s BPM
  3. Adjust the sample’s pitch
  4. Tweak the Attack and Release
  5. Apply a low-pass and high-pass filter (Tone)
  6. Reverse the sample

Once you’re happy with how your sample sounds, hit download and you are free to use it when you create your music.

Create a huge library of one-shots!

You can also use the Trim function to turn a single sample into a collection of one-shot samples! Simply place the start and stop positions at the portion of the sample you want (e.g. a snare playback.) You can then modify it as you wish, then download the sample as a one-shot!

Browse through our ever-growing library of professionally created samples on BandLab Sounds. Every sample is royalty-free and free to use. There are no add ons, subscriptions or tiered pricing. Check out BandLab Sounds here.
