If you have a web project to do and you are good at the animation or the flash, but you are no good at composing the jingle for it, then it is possible for you to download royalty free music loops.
Many companies have libraries of hundreds of music loops which they offer free for anyone to use. You can use them absolutely free of charge. You don’t have to pay a single penny. A lot of them sort the jingles out into categories. For example, you could go for a rock anthem, or jungle or a kids tune. Do you need Arabian Salsa? You got it!
Also there are jingles with voice and without. It is good to be aware of what is out there. Some of them have a voice saying a particular popular phrase or saying. It can be like ‘Happy Birthday’ or ‘You got mail’ or a great variety of other voices that you can use to jazz up your productions.
There’s no such thing as a free lunch! Why do these companies give out free jingles? Well, firstly the jingles or music loops are completely royalty free. That is, they do not ask for any money for you to use them. This is a potential saving of hundreds because in some instances you not only have to pay to purchase the tune, but also have to pay a small amount every time it is played. With these you don’t need to do that!
The reason they are free is that many times, the company which is distributing them asks for a link to be placed in your website, or a credit to appear somewhere in your finished work. This sort of advertising will prompt others to also use their work. This type of advertising is priceless to them. So, by using their work and giving them a credit or a link, you are actually doing them a huge favour!
