ARTLIST.IO – VIDEO MUSIC YOU CAN JUST LISTEN TO
Music to use in videos is always a problem. The songs you like and are emotionally attached to are generally subject to copyright meaning they can’t legally be used online. Some can, but only if you monetize videos and give all revenue to the copyright holder.
There are quite a few channels and sites out there offering music for you to use. However, unless you’re willing to pay, they are often poorly produced and a little amateur sounding. Even if the music is great, there’s just something about the sound of stock music. It all sounds a bit soulless.
IS THIS JUST AN AD OR PROMOTION?
Absolutely not. At time of production, I am a regular paying subscriber who wanted to do a review of their good and bad points on my channel. I advertise the referral scheme. This is something all users can use.
UPDATE JUNE 2018: I am now affiliated with Artlist and have updated the link above accordingly. I must stress that all the views in this video are entirely my own.
WHAT IS ARTLIST?
Artlist is a site that allows you to download from a library of royalty free music. It’s a subscription service (annual only) and this gives you access to their full catalogue. The following is directly from their site.
“Every filmmaker should have access to incredible music. That’s why we search the globe for the best musicians, then curate their music into a powerful platform where filmmakers can always find something inspiring, evocative, or moving to underscore their work. We are not a jingle factory, but a community of artists who put heart and soul into our music, just as you put your heart into your video productions.”
There are other services out there doing this but there are a few key reasons that make Artlist stand out from the crowd a little. That’s what I’m reviewing in this video.
