Searching for royalty free Music Websites List?  Here are 10 Downloadable sources

Music is a vital part of any film or video. It can be used to create a certain mood for interpreting the visuals on screen. Same visuals can have different interpretation with different music. This is because we perceive films audio-visually and in our subconscious mind audio designs how we should interpret the visuals.

If you are on a low budget, hiring a Composer for your film might be difficult. You might want some specific type of music for a certain part and you can get it from the internet (a track by your favorite artist) but as soon as you upload your video you might get a copyright violation warning. To avoid this you should use Royalty Free Music.

Royalty Free Music It means it’s free of any royalty fees. It does not necessarily mean it’s completely free of charge, it just means once you buy the track, you can use it in your film and do not have to pay anything else regardless how many times your video has been watched. There are sites where you can download completely free of charge Royalty Free Music.

    According to me, all the royalty free music websites are fake. They are charging even much higher than a music director or music composer
