YouTube logoAre you looking for Royalty-free music?

Are you looking for a new place to source your music bed library?

While Voices.com offers a range of free sound effects and some royalty-free music you might be on the lookout for new places to build your library of royalty-free music. Thanks to a LinkedIn post from Bobbi Owens, I was tipped off about YouTube's most recent addition to their tool box for video creators.

The YouTube team has created an Audio Library that brings together a compilation of high-quality, free-to-download music that consists of every genre from classical pieces to original modern tracks including hip hop, rock music, country, and more. You can even select your track by mood, duration or a specific instrument.

The YouTube Audio Library currently supplies over 150 royalty-free tracks that can be downloaded, reused and remixed for free, forever, for any creative purpose - not just YouTube videos - making this an excellent resource for voice-over artists, video producers, and video game producers to enhance their work.

You need to have a YouTube channel in order to access the Audio Library, but that's free as well. Accessing the Audio Library can be a little tricky unless you're an avid YouTube user but once you've created a channel, you just click on the Video Manager and then Creation Tools. There you'll find the Audio Library.

150 Tracks and Growing

While 150 tracks may sound like a paltry sum, that won't be the case for long. YouYube is continuing to accept submissions from musicians who want to get their instrumentals heard which is sure to build a huge library quickly.

Another nice thing about the YouTube Audio Library is that they review each and every submission for quality before making the MP3s available to the public so you know what you're getting is good, and copyright free.

Will you be using the YouTube Audio Library?

All the best,
