Finding the right music for your short or feature film can make or break a project. Uppbeat is a new sound platform that's been built for the creator community in mind.
Officially launching today, Uppbeat has over 900 registered tracks from artists, producers, and composers from around the globe that can be used in your projects without the risk of a copyright claim. The diverse catalog features curated playlists that can complement any project or genre. Those involved include Pryces, Genuine Colour, and Danijel Zambo, whose music appears in vlogs from content creator Casey Neistat.
Uppbeat is similar to TunePocket, but with the latter, you get access to sound effects and different musical instruments. Uppbeat plans to offer sound effects at a later point. In the meantime, No Film School has curated the best royalty-free sound effects websites you should definitely bookmark. Plus, YouTube has its own library of free sounds, worth knowing about.
Uppbeat offers two subscription tiers. There is a free version that allows you to download 10 full-length tracks per month, and an unlimited version for $6.99 USD per month that includes the ability to whitelist YouTube channels to preempt any copyright claims.
