From Co-creator, Destery Smith's Tumblr page at:
As a ton of you know, I am a full time YouTuber. I love making videos with all of my heart because it allows me to have a creative outlet that all of you lovely people can enjoy as well. As a YouTuber, it’s a really important thing to get amazing background music in my videos because it really sets a mood in your videos, and background music can be the one thing that turns your GOOD video into a GREAT video.
Sadly, background music is hard to get. With YouTube’s new copyright content ID matching in place, its become harder than ever to get away with using the music you WANT in your videos without being flagged. If you want to make sure you don’t flag your video, you have to use either the same garageband loops EVERYONE uses, OR you have to find a royalty free site where you pay an assload of money for ONE song which BLOWS.
Whats more is there are HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of bands out there that NEED promotion for their band who would LOVE if you used their music in your videos. Any time I upload a video and find a new artist to use in my videos, they are usually thrilled at the idea that more people could discover their music through my videos. It’s a win win. I get to use amazing songs, they get promotion.
HOWEVER what happens when you’re such a small band that you can’t catch the eye of that ONE person who would make your band huge? what happens if you’re a YouTuber who just CAN’T seem to find the right music? Thats why as of today I announce the site SOVNDWAVE.
SOVNDWAVE is a royalty free music library built specifically for YOUTUBERS and bands. it allows a band to upload their music, allow YouTubers like me to find their music through the site, and use them to promote the band in YouTube videos.
I had this idea since 2008, when I realized that having NO music to use in your videos BLOWS. Thats when I had to reach out to artists like POGO, JEESH, PSUS, LEMAITRE, ROBOT SCIENCE, TRAMPA, NICKASAUR, DISCOTOTHESTARS, etc just expand my library of music I can use for videos. Around the same time, a group of bands contacted me through twitter basically BEGGING for me to use their music because they saw how well other artists were doing from my video’s promotion.
FINALLY I was able to combine these two ideas into Sovndwave.
As of now, Sovndwave is a limited music resource, but as the site expands, and as you all gain interest, the more artists we can have, and the better this experience will be. I’M REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THIS, its the first website I’ve ever helped make so it’s really a learning experience as well. BUT PLEASE GUYS check out http://www.sovndwave.com , sign up (ITS FREE) and you’ll have access to awesome royalty free music specifically to use in your videos!!
