Who would of thought that YouTube would give producers a new way to download samples to use for beats? Well they’re not, but I stumbled upon a new feature they just added that allows us to search for high quality samples by mood, instrument, genre and duration and download them for free! It’s actually really simple and all you need is a YouTube account.
Here’s how it works:
1. Sign in to YouTube
2. Next to the search bar, you’ll see an “Upload” button with an arrow pointing down next to it. Click on the arrow and click on Dashboard.
3. On your right hand side, you’ll see a side panel with options such as Video Manager, Channel Settings, Inbox and… Creation Tools!
4. Click on Creation Tools and you’ll see libraries of sounds categorized by Featured, Genre, Mood, Instrument, Duration and Favorites.
5. Now just browse the sounds and click on the Download button located next to the Star button and start downloading samples!
