Royalty Free Music - For YouTube and anywhere else where you might need some free music [Updated 02/12/2015]]

The following is the current list of all the royalty free (available under creative commons) music that I have uploaded to YouTube. Full credit is given to the makers of the music. I intend to keep adding to this list so keep checking back for more. The music is great to use for YouTube videos, intro music, soundtracks and will also be useful in a school environment where copyright issues are quite common with students using popular commercial tracks instead of freely available music.

No more unlimited storage on Office 365

OneDrive (the storage service for Office 365) is no longer unlimited, instead you will have to make do with a measly 1TB maximum. Microsoft have also reduced the free storage from 15GB to 5GB for personal users. Google Apps for Education will be worth looking at if you work in the education sector as that is still unlimited storage.

Apparently Microsoft have got the hump after some users were storing 75TB on their unlimited storage account, the cheek!

If you are currently using more than 1TB (education or paying customers) or 5GB (personal) you have 12 months to move the data elsewhere.

Royalty Free Music from audionautix.com

I am currently in the place of doing visualization videos for the royalty free music available from http://audionautix.com created by Jason Shaw

There are quite a few to add and I will adding them to playlists by genre and tempo eventually.

An example of one of the videos is this blues track

Royalty Free Music - More Added

I have added more royalty free music to my YouTube channel. This time the bulk of new videos contain some spectrum visualization as the music plays. This was achieved using Sonic Candle, which is a Java based piece of open source software. I will be doing a guide on how to use it, although it is very straight forward.

So far I have added a music that is ideal for cinematic pieces or anything which requires a bit of ambient or atmospheric music. 

All of which has been created by http://www.bensound.com/royalty-free-music/ I take no credit for making the music, I am just trying to make a one-stop resource for royalty free music and at the same time mess around with audio visualization.

The playlist is available on YouTube at here

One of my favourites it The Duel

Royalty Free Music (Creative Commons Licence)

I am in the process of collating a number of bits of royalty free music, the main reason being that I like music and if I require some music for a bit of software, a game or a YouTube I will have a source that I can refer to. It also gives me a chance to mess around with sounds and visualizers when playing them back. Worth doing? probably not but if it is of use to someone else on planet on earth then at least that is something.

All the royalty free music that I find (will all be creative commons that can be used for money making purposes as well if required) will be put into playlists on my YouTube channel. This music is ideal for use within a school environment as students\teachers can use it without fear of breaking any copyright laws.

The first video is from the Rock Genre (All Credit is to http://www.bensound.com for the music) and is called Rumble

The second is also from the Rock Genre (All Credit is to http://www.bensound.com for the music) and is called Happy Rock!


I plan to add a lot more and incorporate visualisations into the video rather than just a static image. Any enjoy the free music!
