OLPC / Berklee Sample Pool - 8.5 GB (!)

permalink   Fri, Mar 28, 2008 @ 10:17 PM
The Creative Commons Sample Pool just grew by 8.5 GB thanks to the folks at One Laptop Per Child and Berklee School of Music.

More information here…

Update: as of this writing the download situation is a bit of a mess because downloaders have overrun the OLPC servers.

Here’s where we stand:

- There’s a bunch of samples at (follow the link in the post above) and they are all in the search-able sample pool. In other words you can download those right now, use them in a remix and attribute them properly here at ccM.

- There’s a torrent available* that overlaps with the samples at but also has a lot more sample packs. I’m downloading now (should be done a day or 3 lol). When I have all those I will add those to search-able sample pool. If you upload a remix using these samples, please make note of sample packs that aren’t search-able and we’ll do some catch up on that later.

- There even more samples that are referenced on the OLPC wiki page but all those links are dead. When they come online I’ll add those too.


*What’s a ‘torrent’? It’s a file sharing technique (more info at wikipedia)
