Normally we wouldn't have any problems, but since this year we are going to stream the short films you make, we noted that the use of copyrighted music can lead to the blocking of the livestream video, as it happened on the testings we did. So unfortunately, the use of copyrighted music will not be possible for this edition. But don't worry, as a solution we are providing you with this list of royalty free music sites. The condition is that generally you have to give attribution to the composers.
We encourage you to give a look to these links. We also recommend you to double check for the songs you might want to download, because some of these websites also offer some songs that are not free to use in any situation.
Here you go:
Free Music Archive is a portal that offers you the free download of music with Creative Commons license, which means that you will only need to make the minimum effort to give credit to the creator of the songs you use. It has two models, the FMA search engine for CC-licensed songs, and another Pro search engine for original tracks that you have to pay for.
YouTube itself offers its own library of free audio tracks that you can use in any video you want to upload to its platform or any other.
A site that offers multiple audio tracks with free license but with the need for attribution, which means that you will have to include in your video the credit of the author saying that he/she is the one who composed the music.
It is a portal to which any musician can upload their music to be used totally free of charge. The only condition is that you have to give credit to the musicians by saying whose song it is.
This portal offers free music for you to use in any project. It has a free and a paid mode, each of them with its own features and advantages. If you choose the option of creating a free account you won't have to pay anything, but you will have to give credit to the artist to whom the track belongs.
FreePD offers both free and paid rates. The paid tariffs are the ones that allow you to download more songs and with higher sound quality. So you can choose what best suits your needs.
Another page that allows you to search for all kinds of free music tracks, with the only condition of crediting the artist who composed it.
This portal started offering free videos for any online project, and has grown to include a collection of royalty-free music tracks. You will be able to use these tracks in your audiovisual projects without paying and without having to give attribution to anyone, although it’s appreciated.
Have a good day and good luck for the shooting on the weekend!
