Welcome to the Library of Congress’s free Hip-Hop sampling tool

You heard that right, the Library of Congress are making a world of new hip-hop sampling available to everyone for free.

This new tool allows you to explore a wealth of free-to-use sounds from orchestras to choirs, piano pieces to discussions. All of the sounds are completely free to search through, take and mix together from the US Library of Congress’s collection.

The free to use sampling tool is available in preview with a full launch expected later in the year. The tool doesn’t just present with thousands of sounds to choose from, in an easy to explore sound board, but has a built in program made for combining and mixing samples into beats.

The samples are split into collections of various content types like: Inventing Entertainment which features early motion pictures and disc recordings, Free Music Archive which is full of rights-free music, The Joe Smith Collection which features over 200 famous singers, musicians, and others talking about their lives on tape – and many more!

You can check it all out completely free here.
