Top 30 Platforms to Buy Sample and Loop Packs

There are many different platforms and websites to choose from when it comes to buying sample and loop packs.

Loopcloud

It's no surprise that Loopcloud tops our ranks as the top platform to buy sample and loop packs. And that's mainly because when you subscribe to Loopcloud, you are purchasing way more than just the sounds that come with each pack. Integrated directly into your DAW of choice, you can search for over 3.5 million sounds while you're creating. Then slice, edit and pitch samples with ease with its loop editor. Create patterns that are unique to you while saving all of your edits, effects and pitch information in sample templates. Loopcloud can also organize all of your samples (not just from its own platform), giving you an efficient sample management tool. Its cloud storage indexes and protects your samples from being lost, damaged or stolen. Even better, it allows you to access your entire collection - wherever you are. We recently wrote about all the top features in depth. Take advantage of the FREE trial and get started right now.

Splice

Splice

It's hard to argue against Splice as being the best place to buy sample and loop packs as well. Personally, I have subscriptions to both Loopcloud and Splice. Splice has grown massively in the last 3 years and this doesn't appear to be slowing down any time soon. What sets Splice apart is its collaborations with some of the worlds best music producers and sound designers (or vocalists). Splice is consistently putting out artist exclusive packs weekly allowing users to keep their sound fresh and current with the worlds best sounds. Splice is also integrated directly into the hardware samplers manufactured by Akai (MPC Live, MPC X, MPC One, and the Akai Force) making it extremely easy to import your favorite sounds directly into these samplers. You can also give Splice a shot for FREE. And make sure to check out our top Splice Sample and Loop pack rankings that are updated weekly.

Loopmasters has been around since 2003 and has been supporting DJ's, music producers and beatmakers with a wide array of sample and loop packs ever since.

Modern Producers is easily one of our favorite websites to purchase sample and loop packs. The sounds and tools you hear are straight from the studio engineers of artists such as Drake, Timbaland, Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Hopsin, Kid Ink, Lil Wayne, Big Sean and many others. One of my favorite features of this site is the "Sounds Like" tab. If you're producing Type Beats at scale, this is a really handy resource to help you fine tune that sound with some of the freshest samples and loops available to fit that vibe. Modern Producers is one of the elite platforms in this market.

Prime Loops

Prime Loops is another beautiful website full of sample packs that will take your beats and music production to the next level.

Producer Spot is a website worth checking out daily, even if you're not picking up a sample pack.

W.A. Production

W. A. Production isn't just a place to buy sample and loop packs. It's an amazing resource to take your sound to new heights. Sounds, Plugins, Templates of the highest quality are the norm at W.A. Production. Personally, I find the video courses to be some of the best for young beatmakers and music producers on the market. Purchase a sample pack, and then learn how to make a Da Baby Type Beat. Yes, you can do all of this at W.A. Production. Their subscription model is also extremely affordable.
