Join Nate Mars for an in-depth discussion in this video Using Splice Sounds in your projects, part of Learning Splice.
- Now I'll show you how easy it is to get Splice sounds into your projects. I'm going to navigate to this custom pack that we've created and do one more quick check of all the samples. (electronic music samples playing) I think there's a lot of good stuff to work with, and remember you can audition samples by clicking the up or down arrows on your keyboard and any samples in a list. So now we're going to take a look at downloading these samples and dragging them from the Splice desktop app right to your DAW.
You can see these download buttons are green. That's because I've already downloaded this sample before. I can download it again without having to use any additional credits. That's really great if I'm working in different studios. I can go to a different studio and access just a few samples that I've downloaded before and that I want to use without having to download every sample in a pack. Let's try downloading these samples again to this new studio that I'm working in. You can see that when I just hit download, the Splice app opens. Let's download a few more samples.
And you can see this particular sample I haven't downloaded before, and I'm going to use one credit and download this sample. Cool. Let's continue to download a bunch of these samples. And now that we've downloaded samples, if I navigate to the sounds tab in the Splice desktop app I can see all of the different samples that I've just downloaded. So now we have our DAW open, and the DAW I'm using here is Ableton Live. We also have the Splice desktop app open. If you navigate to your sounds tab, you can see all the samples you've downloaded.
This entire track was made using Splice sounds. What I can do is drag in some samples right from the Splice desktop app into the DAW. Let's here what this sounds like. (electronic beat) (electronic beat continues) As you can see, Splice sounds can really help you create music quickly and find samples without having to purchase and download a bunch of samples you don't want to use.
It's compatible with any DAW, and you can even drag samples right into tons of other plugins and software samplers.
