New Royalty-Free Music for Your Next Online Project? YouTube Can Now Help

I occasionally find myself in need of background music for a project.  But since I’m a cheap bugger, I don’t want to pay the licensing fees that are often required.  That’s where royalty-free stock tracks come in.  You still have to pay for them but on a one-time-only basist.  They’re yours to use without paying licensing fees and royalties.

I’ve used Pond5 in the past with much success, but now YouTube is in the game.

The company launched an audio library with over 150 royalty-free instrumental tracks.  Give it a look or check with Mashable for a review.
