Converse Rubber Tracks

As creative professionals we're constantly drawing from inspiration for everything we do, so when we find something as cool as this free sample library from Converse, we think it's important to share it with our friends. Converse, yes the show company, has their own recording studio in Brooklyn, New York called simply Converse Rubber Tracks. This community based studio is free for artists to use to record their music, so it's only natural that they would partner with artists to develop this free sample library to kickstart your own productions. Check it out, maybe you'll find something to inspire your next hit!

The Library

As the culture of music changes and as technology evolves, creative power is increasingly concentrated in the hands of individual musicians. There is no more need for the multi-million dollar budget to make a record; a hit can be produced in a bedroom, a garage, or even in transit. The Converse Rubber Tracks Sample Library is a royalty-free library of one shots, loops, and stems recorded at Rubber Tracks studios. Created in partnership with Indaba Music, the library will provide a unique resource for musicians all over the world at no cost. Creators are free to explore, download, experiment, and create using library samples and are empowered to utilize the resulting works in unlimited ways.

The Studio

Converse Rubber Tracks is a community-based professional recording studio in Brooklyn, NY. Emerging musicians of all genres can apply for free studio time. If selected, artists record at no cost while maintaining the rights to their own music.
