I have seen many people asking the search engines and in various video related Facebook groups questions like: “Where can I find free music to use in my videos?” “Where can I find Royalty free music?” “Free music for commercial use?” Because I see the same questions being asked so often, I thought it was time to do some research and find some useful answers.
We know that video is a great way to market almost anything these days, but when it comes to choosing and adding a soundtrack to your latest video ad, video product review, or even your latest blockbuster, you are entering a minefield!
Although a music track is “royalty free” this does not mean it is actually free to use or that you can just download it to your computer and upload it to your video editor. You need to check any licensing requirements very carefully to avoid legal actions and/or very large fines!
I’ve compiled a list of 52 sites offering music and sound effects you can download and use. That’s one for each week of the year!
