How to use music in your projects:

Best royalty free music for Youtube

While many YouTube users add music from YouTube’s Audio Library to their videos, you can stand out from the crowd by using unique royalty free music discovered on PremiumBeat. If you are looking for royalty free background music for your content, check out PremiumBeat’s “Cinematic,” “Acoustic,” or “Ambient” genre options. Try to match the tone of your video to that of the music. If you are unsure of the tone, watch some videos from YouTube users with content similar to your own and pay attention to their music. Are the songs upbeat and fast-paced or slow and mellow? Are there certain instruments that seem to stand out? Once you have a sense of what sort of music is working effectively in these videos, you can perform your own music search. Download the songs that excite you and add them to your video. Try to align the cuts in your video with musical changes in the song. If, for example, a drumbeat suddenly picks up, that might be a good moment to cut the video to a new shot angle.

Best royalty free music for Twitch

So you’re a videogame aficionado looking for some music to kick your livestream up a notch? Try adding intro or outro music. Intro music essentially introduces your audience to your video while outro music plays at the end to wordlessly inform viewers that the video is ending. To find music that will match the tone of the videogame you are playing, check out PremiumBeat’s advanced filters. Go to the search engine, look to the filters on the left, and select “Genres.” Scroll until you spot the “Games” genre. Take a listen to Adventure music, 8-Bit tracks, Racing tunes, and more. If you will be talking during your livestream and don’t want the music to distract your viewers, go for instrumental music. You can easily find a whole host of those tracks in the PremiumBeat library by scrolling down to the Advanced filter and selecting the “Instrumental Only” option.

Best royalty free music for Podcasts

One of the most effective ways to use royalty free music in your podcast is to set a track as your audio logo. An audio logo provides aural branding for your show. It is basically a theme song played in each episode of your podcast, usually at the beginning as an intro song. It informs listeners of both the tone of your show and the fact that your podcast is professional and consistent. To find the best royalty free music to use as an audio logo, you can simply select the “Audio Logo” option from PremiumBeat’s “Genres” filter. Alternatively, you can download any song that suits you and use the preset 15 second section of the song or edit the track yourself in order to use your favorite little section as your intro.
