Are Your Samples Royalty Free?

For the most part our samples are not royalty free. The team here at The Sample Lab works very hard to create and design samples and compositions that stand on their own as songs. Many samples have various sections, layers and ideas with each pack sometimes taking hundreds of hours to create and mix. This process is more time consuming than and involved than the creation of your average royalty free sample pack. 

At what point do I need to clear a sample? 

Our samples can be used for personal projects, leasing and selling beats on sites like Beatstars and independent placements (not distributed through a major) free of sample clearance. If a beat or song you created with one of our samples is to be distributed through or by a major label, clearance terms would be negotiated between the major label and the creators of the specific sample.
