Music Kits Quick Overview
If you're new to Envato's Music Kits, read Eric Schwarz's tutorial Why Envato Music Kits Are the Essential Audio Solution to Any Project or, for a quick overview, view the video above.
Whether you’re creating videos, podcasts, TV or radio ads, films, slideshows or mobile phone apps, the music you use is going to be a critical component of your creation because it sets the tone and influences the emotional response your viewer has to your product.
Happily there’s plenty of fantastic royalty-free music to be found at AudioJungle. However the typical music item is usually a fixed-length track, which is ideal for those who have specialised audio editing equipment and skills but not so great for those who don't.
This is where music kits come into their own.
A music kit is a song track that has been pre-edited into individual musical sections that can be rearranged like building blocks to create custom-timed and custom-structured theme songs.
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 project requires as well as the tempo progression needed.
Whether you’re looking for music that is inspirational, dramatic, playful or commercial, you’re certain to find what you’re looking for at AudioJungle.
To save you some time, here’s a selection of the 30 best music kits of 2017 to get you started.
