Audiio.com Lifetime Deal
A new music licensing website, Audiio.com, has recently launched with a very special offer: for a single payment of $199 (about £160) you get lifetime access to the platform and all the licensed music, both existing music and any tracks added.
When you consider most licensing websites charge either a monthly or annual fee (usually around $199 per year) this is a really good offer.
I generally make use of the YouTube Audio library, I find it has a lot of great music with the quality getting a lot better in the last couple of years. However, while good, it still can’t compete with the paid for sites and that’s where this was a no brainer purchase for me.
Audiio allows you to listen to a short clip of any track (about 20-30 seconds) without signing up for an account or making a purchase. Doing so allowed me to hear the quality of tracks and it didn’t take me long to make a purchasing decision!
When browsing you can filter by a certain element, e.g. instrumental only, male or female vocals or genre to name a few. One filter it really needs is track length, at the moment 1 minute tracks are mixed in with 5 minute tracks, but I’ve been assured by Audiio this is being developed at the moment.
You have the ability to listen to tracks in your browser, something I’m doing as I type this, at the moment you’re unable to set the browser playback volume, another suggestion I’ve given them. This would be really useful when you want to try different songs out with your video without downloading them, play in the browser, set the volume so it doesn’t overpower your video and see if the music and video work well together.
A more advanced feature I’d like to see is the ability to search for keywords/phrases in song lyrics, for example you might want a hip hop song that contains the words power and energy.
For a relatively new service, the website is already very polished and there are literally thousands of tracks available, with the promise of more added on a daily basis.
This lifetime offer is available until March 2020 via: https://audiio.com/lifetime
