Get the New Infinite Royalty-Free Music and Sound Effects Library

free podcast music

What’s the first and most recurring struggle for independent podcasters? Finding great, royalty-free music, sound effects, and jingles at a good price.

Background music and sound effects are key to polishing up any show and provide each episode dimension and structure, adding emphasis to important moments in your story or interview. And, of course, you’re not looking for just any license-free music, but an endless resource of it that you’ll actually want to use.

Why you need a royalty-free library for your podcast:

  • To break up your episodes or interviews and give them some sonic dynamism.
  • To give your particularly “talky” episodes a tone via background music.
  • To find great songs or sound effects to use in your jingle

Starting today, you can explore our new Music Library powered by Epidemic Sound and get your podcast sounding just right! Epidemic Sound produces and distributes royalty-free music in a user-friendly way, offering access to more than 30,000 songs and sound effects and to use freely throughout your recordings.

How to get 30,000 royalty-free songs and sound effects through Spreaker:

  • Access Epidemic Sound here and browse through their library;
  • Activate a subscription at only $75
  • Download and use your tracks throughout your recordings

So, if you’re a podcaster and haven’t found the right jingle yet, or if you’re looking for royalty-free music that you’ll actually want to listen to, definitely consider browsing Epidemic Sound’s library. At $75 a year, you get access to an infinite resource to enhance your production and really impress your listeners.

Like how that sounds? We thought so! tell us all about how you plan to use music and effects in the comments below!

    Hi, what happens when my subscription ends and I do not renew it? Will I loose my license for all my uploaded episodes on spreaker (those for which I used the music files)?

    I am so happy with the selections and quality of the material provided from Epidemic Sound. I had the same question is it o.k. to use YouTube subscription for my podcast. The people are fast at getting you an answer also when they do not make it clear they inform you of the discovery. I am small and just don’t have a lot of money to spend on extraordinary music (So I Thought!!) for the price you get the a solid solution to your music needs. Also if thats not enough! You might get a deal. YOU NEED Epidemic Sound if you are a creator. The company and it’s staff Rocks.

    the point, it is not free. is $75. so please correct this on the post.

      Hi, Charlie, we’re sorry if you misunderstood. We clearly wrote that the library costs $75 in the post. We used the term “royalty-free music” because the music is not copyrighted, not because it’s free (which it isn’t)!

        Hi Chiara, I have a current subscription with epidemicsound but I understood that I can only use the music in my youtube channel. I’m currently podcasting as well an if this subscription allows me to use the music would be just fantastic, but not sure if that’s true. Are you able to clarify this? Thanks Gaston
