Where to Get Free Music?

Soundcloud is a popular music platform, and you’re possibly already using it. Many great artists, including bands, DJs, and composers, add their music to Soundcloud. Since artists upload their music for free, they usually have some terms of use for their music. It’s wise to read through the rules and abide by them unless you want to get sued.

YouTube creator studio also provides excellent free music which you can use without having to worry about copyright issues. Since their clips are free, they usually require you to credit the artist, which is only fair. Some artists also demand contributions to use their music.

How to Add Music

Assuming that you’ve installed the latest version of the Kinemaster app, and have some great music on your Android device, you’re nearly ready. The only thing that’s left is to have a video already recorded on your device. You can also use an image if you only want to test this feature.

Now that you’re ready, here is how to add music in Kinemaster:

  1. Open Kinemaster and load the video file you have in mind.
  2. Tap on the Audio button, located in the media panel to the right.
  3. Select the Add(+) button to choose a music file you want to add.
  4. Confirm the changes by tapping the tick button in the top-right corner.

You can edit the audio file to your liking. There are a bunch of available filters, compression, etc. You can also loop music files or set them to play in the background.

That wasn’t so hard, was it? Additionally, you can record audio with Kinemaster if you’d like to add a personal touch to your recordings.

Recording audio in Kinemaster is simple. Follow the steps to do it:
