Chapter 9. Designing with Audio > Using Audio Sources

Using Audio Sources

Rarely do motion graphics end up being played back without music. Yet music often gets overlooked or shortchanged during the design process (and instead gets slapped on at the end). Finding affordable, high-quality, and legal sources for music can sometimes be a challenge. Fortunately, Soundbooth has a variety of royalty-free music scores and audio effects that can be edited and mixed to match the style of your video.

Close-Up: Finding Sources for Music

If you’re looking for another place to find royalty-free or public-domain licensed music, you might want to check out http://freemusicarchive.org. It’s a wonderfully forward-thinking site directed by WFMU-FM with the digital creative in mind. If you’re looking for music for motion graphics or even samples cleared for remix and distribution, there are a variety of music licenses available. New artists and old, this site seems to have a little of everything available for download. Be sure to look at the terms of use for each song you want to use.
