How to Identify Song Samples: Apps to Discover Them

There are countless songs to sample, all you need to do is turn on the radio or TV and start playing with these apps. But the most recommended ones based on user reviews and popularity are as follows.

Who Sampled

Let’s start by talking about Who Sampled, because it deserves special attention due to its unique features.

With this app, you can’t necessarily identify the song itself, but you can check if it has used samples from other songs, if it has been sampled by others, or even remixed.

This option is fantastic because it will clear up any doubts when you hear a song that you swear you’ve heard before in another song, in other words, sample covers. As you can see, finding a sample is easy.

Shazam

If you’re looking for a reliable app for songs with samples, this is it. Being the most well-known, it has become the most downloaded.

In a matter of seconds, you can identify songs, learn about the music production, follow the lyrics in real-time, purchase songs, and even listen to the full song on Spotify or Google Play Music.

If you want to leave annoying ads behind, you have the option to pay.

SoundHound

Here’s another good option and the second most downloaded app at the moment, which allows you to input the songs you want to sample. This app is so good that it can even recognize the song if you hum it.

You can also view the lyrics in real-time and purchase songs.

Track ID

This app for sampled songs is from Sony and can be downloaded on any Android device.

This app is simpler than the previous ones, but don’t underestimate it, as it allows you to recognize the song and access information about the song itself and the artist, country-specific hit lists, and a history.

Sound Search for Google Play

This is a free app for discovering song samples. However, keep in mind that it’s a very basic option that only allows you to recognize songs, purchase the song, or listen to a snippet on Google Play.

Google

Google couldn’t be left out of this list as it’s one of the simplest and most accessible options for sampling a song.

It’s just a matter of using voice search to recognize hip-hop, pop, or any other style of song. However, note that being such a simple alternative, it will only show you the card on Google Play without a history.

Before we finish, as a music lover, we would like to recommend Ableton Live, which is a specialized program for music composition and editing. With it, you can take your skills to another level.

Now you know how to identify song samples, keep in mind that these apps have obtained the necessary copyright permissions from music producers to access their databases. It’s up to you to choose the one that you believe is most suitable and offers what you’re truly looking for when identifying a track. See you later!
