If you want cheap yet high quality tracks, choose Audiio. If you're looking for more music variety and even higher quality tracks, then choose Epidemic Sound. The two sources are great for royalty free sounds, but they hold their differences. Keep reading to find out more.
If you're a YouTuber or any other sort of online content creator, you may have experienced issues with music and copyright in the past. Luckily, there are companies out there that allow you to freely use music in your videos without having to worry about copyright claims, royalties or licensing. Two of those companies are known as Audiio & Epidmic Sound. In this post, we'll go over the differences between the two to help you make a more informed choice when choosing a royalty free music subscription.
As you probably already know, Epidemic Sound is a music licensing website where you can find high-quality music tracks to use in various types of media production, such as social media, short films, podcasts, and even games. They offer a subscription-based model, giving users access to a large library of tracks that can be used for commercial and non-commercial projects.
One of the key features that sets Epidemic Sound apart from Audiio is the breadth and diversity of its library. Unlike Audiio, Epidemic Sound has a wide variety of genres and styles, including pop, rock, electronic, and more, making it easy to find the perfect track for any project.
In addition to its library, Epidemic Sound also offers a range of customization options, like the ability to create custom playlists, which is a feature that some of their competitors may not offer.
Audiio is a newer royalty free music site that has only been around for a few years. Within those few years, the platform has already amassed over 80,000 users. Unlike Epidmic Sound, Audiio offers a one time payment to access all their libraries. They have different plans available to suit different use cases of their product.
Here is a comparison of features from the two platforms, Audiio and Epidemic Sound, in a comprehensive chart. We will be evaluating their library size, pricing, licensing options, and other key features to help you decide which platform is the best fit for your needs.
Epidemic Sound has a much larger music library consisting of over 35,000 tracks, whereas Audiio only has a couple thousand (actual amount is unknown).
From my personal experience based on testing both platforms for over 2 months, I've found that the tracks on Epidemic Sound are more enjoyable to listen to. They have that so-called "ear candy" to them. Audiio on the other hand, has a lot more basic sounding tracks. Like something you'd make on FL Studio after downloading the program for the first time.
Both Epidemic Sound and Audiio have great UXs. Although Epidemic Sound had better music filtering options to find exactly what you want. Epidemic Sound is also the more popular option - which says a lot about its overall popularity.
As we mentioned earlier in this article. Audiio charges a one time fee in three different programs to access their entire library. Epidemic Sound is subscription based with prices starting at only$9 USD per month.
So far, Epidemic Sound seems like the more ideal platform to choose regardless of what you're intending to use non-copyright music for, but It's difficult to say which platform is better. It ultimately depends on the specific needs and preferences of the user.
Epidemic Sound may be a better option for users who need more customization options and worldwide clearance for their tracks. They also offer a user-friendly search function and great customer service.
Nonetheless, Audiio is a newer platform with newer music that hasn't been used so frequently in YouTube Videos. So if you're looking for unique music, Audiio would be the better option for you.
Ultimately, both Audiio and Epidemic Sound are pretty good options for music licensing. Epidemic Sound definitely has a bigger library of tracks, which is great if you're looking for a lot of options. Audiio is pretty easy going when it comes to customizing playlists, which is great if you need a specific track for your project. And one thing that's pretty cool about Epidemic Sound is that you don't have to worry about getting extra licenses for different places. In the end, it really depends on what you're looking for and your budget. It would be a good idea to check out both options before making a final decision.
