In order to choose the music that you will use in your audiovisual project -whether it is a video, a presentation or an advertisement- is to determine whether the final use you are going to make of that project is personal or professional.
To make it easier, take this short quiz right now:
Other marketplaces that offer very similar services are Epidemic Sound or even Artlist, each with slightly different prices but very similar.
If there is any doubt about the licenses or if there’s a hypothetical situation that we haven’t covered, write us an email to email@example.com and we will answer as soon as possible.
Let’s check the second option:
Music for Personal Video Production
Personal use is given when the project is for individual use and does not represent any company nor do we plan to take any economic benefit from it, either directly or indirectly.
In that case, we can use free Public Domain music (after 70 years of the death of the artist, the work goes into the public domain, as long as it has not transmitted that right) or under the famous Creative Commons licenses, specially created to share artistic works on the Internet.
Creative Commons icons
The only drawback then is to familiarize ourselves with these licenses, since there are 6 different types and depending on it, we will have more or less freedom when using that piece of music.
Of course, ALWAYSwe must mention the artist somewhere in our project, either in the credits of the video or for example in the description when uploading it to a platform like Youtube.
Here’s a list of websites from which to get this kind of music:
Jamendo: A mix of musical community and marketplace for downloading songs under license. You can download free music for your projects if they are only for personal use.
Free Music Archive (FMA): Free songs under Creative Commons licenses. To use them, we should mention the artist in our project.
Bensound: Over 70 songs ready to download. The use is limited to personal projects.
Incompetech: Creative Commons licensing by attribution is free -attribution MUST be given to make this legal-, but they do suggest a $5 donation as a kindness.
NewGrounds: Experimental sounds and songs for video games. Enter here only if you didn’t find what you’re searching for, they have good music.
As well as another specific list for sound effects:
Free Sound Effects: These high-quality sound effects are selected by the best sound engineers.
Soundsnap: It’s a collection of 100% original sounds made by its users.
