A gameplay without music is not the same…. but you can’t put any song you find on the Internet on it either!
What you need is Royalty-Free music. And this type of music is classified under:
Free Creative Commons music
Royalty-Free music under licenses.
The main difference between the two is that if you use Creative Commons music you will have to attribute -mention- the artist somewhere on the description of your video and you may have certain problems, the largest of which is that:
IF WE USE FREE MUSIC WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO MONETIZE OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL
And that’s because most of these licenses don’t allow their use on professional projects, but only personal ones.
On the other hand, you will have to pay some money ($29) for the licenses but you will save yourself a lot of time and headaches since you will be able to monetize your channel without any problem.
If your channel already has a certain level, it’s starting to be a serious project and you want to monetize it, we recommend you leave aside the Creative Commons and focus on the music that you can acquire under licenses.
The greater marketplace to find them nowadays is Envato Elements, where quality is very high and you will find the music classified in all kinds of genres.
The good thing about this page is that for a subscription of 14.50€ per month you can download unlimited music, so you can try all the songs you need in your gameplays and choose always the right ones.
This subscription will provide you with:
Access to all tracks
New tracks added every week
Unlimited use in all your owned and operated channels
No copyright claims or royalty fees – Fully monetize your videos
Cancel at any time
There are, as well, other monthly payment services for which you can access a library of more than 300,000 royalty-free songs.
The best one is Epidemic Sound and that’s why the most famous YouTubers and big channels use it to not to worry about the background music of their videos anymore.
The pricing for this service starts at $15/month and thanks to this, you will be able to monetize your videos without any further problems and you will never receive a copyright claim from YouTube again.
And some websites from which you can download more free music for your gameplay:
Free Music Archive: One of the biggest websites with music under CC licenses with all kinds of genres. To use them, we must always mention the artist who created the music in our project with a link.
Incompetech: Like the previous one, we should mention the artist and read carefully the conditions of the licenses.
