YouTube Takes Cue From AudioMicro With Stock Music

Los Angeles-based AudioMicro has long been a pioneer in offering up royalty-free, stock music effects to video creators. Now, it looks like Google has finally recognized the need for a royalty-free audio like AudioMicro's, and has created its own royalty free music service tied to the video service. YouTube said it provides more than 150 royalty-free instrument tracks in its new YouTube Audio Library. AudioMicro offers up a far more extensive library, with 65,000 royalty free stock music tracks available for all kinds of creative projects. Royalty free music allows video creators to use music tracks, without incurring the typical license fees for music or running afoul of copyright laws, and also usually provide a wide range of music and sound effects which can be adapted and legally used as part of videos.
