No matter what kind of cinema project you’re working on, if you want to convey deep emotion, riveting drama or exciting action adventure pieces, you need to select the right kind of music.
That’s because, unlike the typical music item which is usually a fixed-length track, music kits are song tracks that have been pre-edited into individual musical sections that can be rearranged like building blocks to create custom-timed and custom-structured pieces.
This means that without musical or audio expertise or highly specialised audio software, you can create a professional finish to your soundtracks by dragging and dropping individual song sections to fit both the length of music your scenes require and the tempo progression needed.

I’ve grouped them into Dramatic, Romantic, Emotional, and Action/Adventure for convenience.
All the dramatic music kits featured here have one thing in common. They all deliver big sound that intensifies the theatrical moments in a scene and heightens audience excitement and anticipation.
An Epic Adventure Trailer Kit combines the harmonised sound of chorus with sweeping orchestra to create a soundtrack that is both powerful and haunting.
Using strings, drums, horns, and percussion to create a sense of building drama, Cinematic Epic Kit is perfect for intensifying those key moments of a dramatic scene.
Blockbuster Music Kit is a powerhouse of a soundtrack. It opens with quite strong and ominous percussions that command your attention immediately then introduces a complex layering of soaring orchestra and hard percussions.
Hip Hop and Rock Cinematic Trailer Kit packs a punch with its electric guitars, hard industrial energetic edge, and distorted vocal samples.
These four music kits are ideal for any cinematic project or scene with love or romance as the theme. The four differ from each other quite a bit but all deliver warm, mellow and tender sound using guitar, piano, violin and/or orchestra.
Warm Summer Kit uses beautiful acoustic guitar riffs punctuated with piano and great beats to create a lovely and alluring sound.
In Romantic Wedding Kit, solo piano combines with sweeping violins and an angelic chorus, resulting in a collection of delicate and hopeful tracks.
Bright and optimistic, Romantic Gentle Kit features solo piano with violins, violas, cellos, and cymbals. These tracks are unforgettable and emotionally resonant.
Emotional Piano Motivational Kit starts with a light and airy piano solo, while later tracks incorporate touching strings, cello and some drums to create a composition that is gentle, moving, and full of magic.
Whether you’re looking for a track to complement an epic fantasy battle scene, the clash between good and evil, high-octane action or a quest adventure, there’s something here to please even the most selective palette.
Hybrid Drums Chase Kit is a collection of intense action tracks featuring powerful drum hits, aggressive synths, epic percussion and other elements.

For those times when you need to pull at your audience’s heartstrings, there is the emotional music kit category.
Inspiring Piano Uplifting Kit is an evocative and moving collection of tracks that features solo piano and then introduces strings, cello, and later full orchestra.
13. Emotional Kit
Delicately beautiful solo piano combines with full orchestra and builds in emotional intensity to soaring heights, giving Emotional Kit its amazing power.
14. Epic Rise Kit
Epic Rise Kit is a bit more spirited than the first two music kits featured here. Like the other kits in this category, it makes significant use of solo piano riffs but intersperses them with full orchestra and harmonious choral singing to create a complex emotional rise and fall.
Epic & Emotional Still Alive Trailer Kit generates its emotional power from haunting vocals, the use of drums and other orchestral percussive elements. This makes for a track that, as the name suggests, straddles the emotional and dramatic categories.
These 15 royalty-free cinematic music kits are just a small selection of the thousands of cinematic music kits available at AudioJungle, so if none of them quite fits your needs, there are plenty of other great options from which to choose.
