Free music for your productions

Audio recorder power button

Recently I asked my twitter friends if they had any favourite places for finding music that can be used in podcasts and productions on the internet. Here’s the result:

About 10 000 albums. Lots of creative commons licensed. Modern design. Pretty good search and useful tag cloud.

Fantastic search engine that you can feed with some of your own music to let it find similar music. And narrow your search to give Creative Commons licensed music.

Lots of creative commons licensed music.

Podsafe music from Uhørt
Lots of creative commons licensed music and even soundtracks.

Wikimedia Commons
Large archive of images, video and audio.

And of course a regular creative commons search.

Some free sound effects:
Partners in rhyme
Mediacollege sound effects

You can find more resources through Podsafe on wikipedia. And please feel free to add your favourite sites in the comments.

Thanks, @forteller, @mvcoile, @viskar, and @Ingwii. All of them people that I highly recommend you to follow on twitter! In addition to the fact that you follow me of course…

  1. Thanks – this could prove very useful (it’s surprising how fast one gets bored with the FCP/Apple soundpacks, even though they’re mostly excellent).

  2. You have very nice timing. I was just this morning having a conversation as to whether to make my own music for a commercial or find it online. You have simultaneously made that decision more difficult and the process easier, so Thanks! ;>
