Southern Blues Music is a staple of many types of video as well as video games. With tremendous variety in beat, tempo, and even instrumentation, this broad category can fill many roles. Ranging from slow and soulful to fast and rockin’, just about any scene can benefit from the pure emotion shown in these tracks.
If royalty-free music inspired by cultures around the world is needed, one only has to use SmartSound’s music search to find a wealth of tracks to use.

Intros (which are also exits) are the bookends of a video or video game. They provide a sense of continuity, much like a fiction story in which the first line is the same as the last line. Bumps, on the other hand, serve the same purpose but are used between scenes - a hard edge that quickly reinforces that something new is about to happen. And of course, stingers are essentially 1-3 second sound clips used to emphasize what was just said in the video or game (“Doh!”)
It can be hard to find Suspenseful Intros, Bumps and Stingers, but with SmartSound’s royalty-free music search, much of that work can be done in seconds rather than hours. In seconds you can find great tracks that can be customized by length and mood to suit the needs of any suspenseful scene.
Music written and designed for creating extended beds underneath narration and to sustain longer video scenes in general. A supple blend of rhythm section instruments weaving interesting textures and colors but light on melodic content to stay out of the way of any narration your scene may have.
