How To Access YouTube’s Free Audio Library

Finding copyright-free music and sound effects can be a hugely difficult task. Fortunately, YouTube itself has a large library of each you can use for free. To access the Audio Library:

  • Log in and click your channel icon at the top right of the page
  • Click the Settings cog icon, to the right of the Creator Studio
  • Click the Create dropdown to open the Audio Library
  • Choose between the Free Music and Sound Effects tabs

You can preview each audio resource by clicking the play arrow and download free of charge by clicking the download icon. Take note of the icons displayed next to each track, as some songs are licensed under Creative Commons and, while free to use, will require author attribution in your video description.
