Rubber for the library

Converse sample library

Converse long ago took its Rubber Tracks recording studio project in the road – and recently rolled it out in the UK – now the streetwear brand has launched the Converse Rubber Tracks Sample Library, a collection - created together with musician community Indaba Music - of high-quality bits of audio available to artists free of charge. The library boasts more than 10,000 loops, stems and sounds created by emerging and established artists at the Converse Rubber Tracks studio in Brooklyn and Converse Rubber Tracks pop-up studios around the world.

“With so many musicians having professional recording capabilities in their homes and on their laptops, sampling recorded content has become an integral part of the music creation process,” says Indaba co-founder Dan Zaccagnino.

Jed Lewis, Converse global music marketing director, says, “this free online library will serve as a leading resource for bands, artists, and producers from all over the world to explore their musical aspirations.”
