Over the last few years streaming I have sourced and used music to play on intro and outro, however the mood of them was a quite industrial sounding, great for me but not so much for anyone tuning in at 9am on a Sunday morning (my usual time slot).
So I’ve been hunting for some alternative music pieces and two weeks ago I heard a tune over an infographic video on a news site that really caught my attention and I thought it could work well for an intro piece as it reflected the Cyberpunk/Futuristic theme of my overlays, with the industrial ground pounding that I was using.
After some digging around ( I found it on Google Music first) I discovered that the music could be licensed with a personal license being £10 a month with a 30 Day free trial, of course for that price it also includes many other tracks and sound effects too.
So have taken the plunge to see how it all works, the 30 day trail allows you to test out before you have made any payments, but your channels (Youtube, Twitch, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Podcast) are still able to use it without having a copyright strike.
The key point that I wanted to check and that is confirmed is that any content created (uploaded) during the time you have a license is also covered when you cancel.
Last few streams have been good, I was pleased with the audio quality and felt that it could be a great investment to help me customise my Twitch Channel more to my liking and capturing more of the feel I’m after.
