Content creators are always looking for a way to snazz up their video content or spice up their podcast. Fortunately, it’s a fairly inexpensive thing to do to find royalty free and copyright free music for content creators. Here are both free and paid options to find tracks and sound effects to enhance your content creation.

Audio Library

Completely free is always good, and Audio Library has plenty of royalty-free music for content creators to use. They have a wide array of musical styles to choose from.

EDM Royalty Free

This website offers curated creative commons music for absolutely free as long as it’s purely for personal use. You can then pay for licensing if you’re using it for commercial purposes. There’s also the option to support their Patreon for unlimited music for just $3/month (until they reach 100 patrons which as of 7/15/20 they have not).


While it’s only for its public beta period, Thematic is currently FREE. They offer pre-cleared, curated royalty-free music for content creators. If you try it out, let us know what you think!

Epidemic Sounds

While it’s not free, a personal subscription costs only $15/month and a pro subscription costs $50/mo; plus, it’s significantly less if you pay for a yearly subscription. Epidemic Sounds is used by over 100,000 content creators. It offers over 32,000 tracks and over 64,000 sound effects. If you’re just using the music or effects for your personal YouTube channel, it’s well worth the investment.

EvokeMusic AI

EvokeMusic is an AI-generated royalty-free music site. Obviously, there is no copyright on this music, since it’s computer generated. All you have to do is provide keywords to the AI and it will mix something up for you. Subscriptions are pretty cheap, especially for your own personal content creation needs.

Let us know your favorite royalty and copyright free music options for content creators! We’ll add them to this list if they’re legit!
