How to Get Free Music for Reaper Video Editing. Strict copyright regulations will make it very difficult for us to creatively add music to our video. As video editors, we might want to have an unlimited choice of music to match each scene.
Well, calm down, you don’t have to worry about those things. Here, we will discuss about at least 3 ways to get free music for your video to add while you are editing on Reaper.
- YouTube Audio Library
Youtube has had a lot of resources for video editing for years. But, people in general don’t really know that it’s there. Now, you can utilize those free music to give a touch of creativity into your video editing.
There are a lot of genre you can choose from. It starts from sad music, happy music, electronic music, etc.
The downside of using Youtube Audio Library is that it will be more likely for your video to be seen cheap and as less creative as other people’s video. Well, no wonder. People are hunting for free music, especially Youtubers. So, you have to somehow compete with them.
- Music from the Reaper Audio Editing Library
Reaper has quite a lot of options when it comes to video editing background music. You can access the library that comes with the software. True that the option is rather limited. But, compared to using free music from Youtube together with millions of people out there, you still have a little glimpse of creativity and uniqueness in your video.
- Visit the Music Web No Copyright
There are lots of website that can give you free music. Seriously, tons of them. True that they are not 100% unique (because it’s free, so really, what are you expecting?). But, they can come up as unique as it is because the chance of having your video has the same background music as others are virtually 0%, it’s just too many of them to give you a chance to choose identical music with others.
Pay attention to the format as well. Because it’s free, they’re not available in every format. Some songs are downloadable as mp3, wav, and aac, which are common formats for audio. But, some of them are just bizzare such as M4A, AJC, and many other bizzare format only some audio experts know.
But format issue shouldn’t be too much of a problem. If you are using Reaper, you can simply convert many audio formats into Mp3 before you put it in your video, thanks to Reaper.
