Six Incredibly Useful Royalty Free Music Tracks for Creating Film Soundtracks

Every filmmaker knows that their soundtrack can make or break their entire film. For video production professionals in particular, the quality of the music being used can either lead to dissatisfied clients or to life long customers. Finding the right music for the right moment can be a tricky process. Luckily, royalty free music libraries like Productiontrax can make the search for the right track easy, providing music that covers a wide range of genres and emotional quality, even from the same piece of music. Here are six incredibly versatile pieces of royalty free music that will change the way you use stock music.

1. Sweet, Sweet Success. From motivational corporate videos, to tech advertising, to children’s projects, this piece by Don Swanson could become your next go-to music track whenever you need something light and positive. Evoking feelings of hope and joy, the track gently evolves into a series of sparkling and beautiful sounds, interweaved with a full string ensemble.

2. Dub Step of Terror. This track by Robert Neary escalates and intensifies, gradually building and incorporating elements of traditional dub step with sounds of horror, adventure, and modern drama. Perfect for a wide range of uses from horror to superhero trailers to science fiction to commercials.

3. Pirates – Action Adventure. Whether you need something dramatic for a vacuum cleaner commercial, or you’re actually sailing the high seas, Igge Scoce’s royalty free action adventure music track will help to create the soundscape that sounds like it was created by a film score orchestra, all without the budgetary drain. Also great for video games, and cinematic sequences.

4. Adventurous Beautiful Majesty. From Christian Andersson of Craze Music comes this lush stock music track that is perfect for heroic epiphanies, fantasy titles, video games, documentaries, travel, nature, science, and gentle, lush underscoring.

5. Clocks. Serene, reflective, yet with constant motion, this piece by Adi Goldstein captures the essence of passing time, internal reflection, sadness, and can be used for montages, television dramas, opening titles, and much more.

6. Rays of Happiness. Quiet piano and strings works for anything. We don’t know why — it just does. This production music track by Filip Halon is perfect as a romantic love song, or as the backdrop to a peaceful scene. We think it works great for PSAs and other narrated commercial spots where a little human authenticity is called for.
