Putting Your Free Music to Use
Videos, films, vlogs, apps, games, presentations, podcasts — content comes in all shapes and sizes these days. That means there are an almost infinite number of ways you can use free royalty-free music. Let’s look at a few of them.
Use Free Tracks for Background Music
Thoughtfully applied background music is an emotional extension of your project’s purpose, style, and even its message. Background music can complement the pacing of dialogue in documentaries. It can raise the stakes in action-film stunt sequences, and add a slick, professional sheen to to your Twitch stream. And then there’s perhaps the ultimate application of background music — keeping on-hold callers on the line! At the end of the day, using royalty-free tracks in the background of your project creates atmosphere, emotion, and ambiance while highlighting whatever it is your are trying to communicate.
Use Free Tracks for Podcasts
While podcast soundtracks still live in the realm of background music, it can be argued that podcast music works more to support the project’s message rather than highlight it. The message comes first, so the music is dialed back, existing to fill the silence between lines of dialogue rather than compete with it. With so many podcasts competing for so many ears, a good soundtrack should speak to the distinct character and topic of your podcast, alerting the listener to the emotional journey they’re about to undertake. It’s vital to start each episode with the same intro music, an audio logo that acts as a musical signature. That’s a Branding 101 approach that can go a long way toward building a loyal audience.
Use Free Tracks for Presentations
Obvious statement: professional presentations need to be professional. Stick enough graphs, icons, and numbers on the screen and you might be okay. Of course, “okay” rarely gets the job, promotion, or bonus.
Instead, why not go the extra mile with a high-quality free royalty-free soundtrack that impresses your boss, inspires a new repeat client, and keeps your audience awake and motivated to learn? Giving your presentation a soundtrack helps turn a slide show into a story. It adds a new layer of emotional engagement that keeps people attentive. Carefully chosen presentation music can make a dry topic more fun and a dull topic more exciting.
Training videos, product promos, photography portfolios, video reels — whatever you’re presenting, a properly applied free royalty-free track can punch it up, make it pop, and impact your pocketbook in positive ways.
It’s important to us that you have everything you need to make and share amazing content. Take a few minutes to learn more about how free music can help you accomplish your creative goals, and then explore our curated library of royalty-free songs to find music that inspires your best work yet.
