Vimeo Launches Music Store For Licensing Tracks
You can now easily find music to use in your videos, provided by Free Music Archive and Audiosocket.
The Vimeo Music Store launched last week, bringing its users a way to find and license audio tracks for their videos. With over 45,000 to choose from, creators can search using various criteria such as genre, tempo, theme, mood or a specific instrument, and then download the tracks they want to use.
