Hey, I'm new here. I was wondering if uploading music with samples is allowed. It's all non-profit of course, but I don't wanna get banned from the portal right out of the gate.

I think you are fine if they are Royalty-free samples but otherwise i'm not 100% sure, probably not.

No, they have to be completely copyright free. Royalty-free does NOT automatically mean copyright free.

In short, it's safer to upload songs that are 100% made by yourself, but if you want to sample something, you better make sure they aren't copyrighted, and sate EXACTLY where you got them from.
