Why ccMixter.org It Might Be A Killer
For those looking to create their own music using already available samples and a capellas, ccMixter is great. It’s easy to use and simple to listen to what’s already available on the site. It’s also a great community of other like-minded individuals who can influence each other with different musical samplings.
