Here’s a story to tickle the interest of video editors across the globe. Ever spent all night searching for license-free music and samples to accompany your YouTube vids? It’s not that easy if you haven’t, especially to find something that sounds half decent.
Enter Vimeo. Better known as an online video hosting site, they’ve just launched the Vimeo Music Store. There you can browse a catalogue of over 45,000 (and growing) tracks and samples that can be downloaded and used legally under personal or Creative Commons licences.
It’s all very nicely laid out too, letting you search by genre, tempo and mood among other parameters.
The best part? Though a few tracks come with a reasonable price tag (£1.30/ $1.99) the vast majority are totally free.
