YouTube has a free audio channel for use in your videos


I stumbled across this today. Thought it was too good to be true, but sure enough, it’s legit, and from Google. From their website:

Free music attribution & monetization

  • Attributing your video:If you see an attribution-required icon  next to a track, make sure to credit the original artist in your video description. Learn more about attribution on the Creative Commons website.
  • Monetizing your video:You can monetize your video since free music isn’t claimed through Content ID. If you’re prompted to show that you have commercial use rights to the music, just make sure to include the music’s exact title and that you downloaded it from the YouTube Audio Library. Learn more about supplying documentation to claim rights.

Links to the genre playlists of the channel:


There are sound effects, too.
