3 New Free Royalty Free Music Sites

Three new sites that I recently found offering free royalty free music to use in your commercial projects with no fees or hassles from the man…

Cameron Music is offering a selection of tracks for free use in commercial projects. Some of the suspenseful tracks are pretty good, others are kind of midi sounding but all useful for low budget type projects.
www.cameronmusic.co.uk

Sonny Boo is a filmmaker who is offering a very nice selection of music tracks for absolutely free use in any commercial project. Very nice of him….
Sonny Boo

I had seen the Purple Planet website a few years ago when they were selling their music and just noticed that all of their music is now free for website type uses (including Youtube) with only a credit to the composer in return.
They also ask for donations but it is not required. The music is pretty cool too, check it out…

93 Free Music Clips for Podcasting

Found this page today offering 93 free music clips available for use in podcasts (and I imagine other non-broadcast type uses) on the Indiana University website.

The quality of the clips is questionable, very Garageband sounding, but there are quite few gems in there if you look hard enough

Some of the tracks I like are the Indian flavored ones like this;
Lone Rider

Some of the funky guitar tracks are interesting as well;

Free Music Clips from Vlad Rebek

I found another pretty cool site with free royalty free music clips today.
It is run by musical composer/enthusiast and experimentalist Vlad Rebek and he is offering a collection of his tracks for “joy or for profit, or both”.

You can take a look at his complete terms here

And you can preview and download his music starting here by click on the categories in the left hand menu.

Free Royalty Free Music from Jaybot7

I came across this collection of 25 free royalty free music tracks from Jaybot7. They are fun tracks in a variety of styles with some pretty good guitar playing on some of them.
These tracks are available to download and use in personal and commercial projects completely royalty free. The composer only asks for a credit
25 Free Royalty Free Music Tracks

Here are the “small details” Jabot7 has posted in regards to using his music:

Small details: The only thing I ask if you use one of the following tracks is that you shoot me an email using the contact page, and give Credit to Jaybot7 LLC somewhere in the project.

Yes, you can absolutely use this in a commercial project (the kind that you charge money for). No, you don’t have to pay me anything. Just make sure you contact me and give me credit somewhere as stated above. The only thing you can’t do with these Royalty Free tracks is re-license or sub-license them (meaning, you can’t simply download them and start selling them as your own).

More Free Royalty Free Music Clips

Besides all of the free royalty free music we give away for personal and commercial use here
http://www.partnersinrhyme.com/pir/free_music_loops.shtml
we also like to point you to other websites and blogs that offer free royalty free music. Here are three composers that I ran across today:

Taylor Howard
http://www.taylorhayward.org/recordings.htm
Some very nice ambient / classical piano recordings from Taylor Howard with wide-open, copyright-free terms for use:
“The music on this site is: free to download and play, free to rebroadcast in any form for any purpose, free to play in public, free to publish for profit, and free to sample.
There is no copyright on this music.
If you can think of a creative way to use this music, you have my full support.”

Bill Cushman
http://ghostnotes.blogspot.com/
This talented is offering his beautiful piano pieces for free use in personal and commercial project. You need to contact the composer before using music.

Derek Audette
http://derekaudette.ottawaarts.com/music.php
A collection of free royalty free music from Derek Audette. Although most of the tracks are very midi sounding there are some interesting and usable pieces here:

“There is no charge or licensing fees associated with the use of any of these songs for any reason. I only ask that if you use them in a production in which you are able to give credit, (such as closing credits in a video or film production) that you do provide the proper credit in your production. ”

4 Public Domain Gregorian Chants for Download

g_chantHere are four public domain Gregorian Chant music clips for you to download and use in absolutely whatever way you want. Public domain means no one owns it, it means you can just use it with no restrictions. These are pretty good quality clips too.

Gregorian chant is the central tradition of Western plainchant, a form of monophonic liturgical chant in Western Christianity that accompanied the celebration of Mass and other ritual services. This vast repertory of chants is the oldest music known as it is the first repertory to have been adequately notated in the 10th century.

Copyright Free Music Clips from Josh Levine

Besides our collection of free royalty free music available for commercial use here:
Free Royalty Free Music, here is a collection of “Copyright Free” music clips from Josh Levine available free for any type of use as long as you credit. I doubt they are actually “copyright free” as that would mean that Josh no longer owns them and he would not be able to request a credit for them. I’m pretty sure he means “royalty free”.
There are 19 tracks in this collection of varying quality. With titles like “One Hour Garageband Tune #1″ you might get an idea of how they were recorded.

(This is an MP3 file which usually means they won’t loop properly, however I have gone in with an MP3 editor and removed the blank audio at the head and tail that the MP3 conversion usually adds to the file.)

Free Royalty Free Music Clips: Purple Planet

I found some more free royalty free music clips today available from Purple Planet.
They have a variety of genres available like calm, dramatic, jazzy, blues, mystery, horror and comic.
Their website states:
"All the music here can be used essentially for free (though we appreciate a small donation) for any type of film production or web presentation (youtube, podcasts, blogs etc). This includes revenue-generating, commercial uses."
