Twitch has announced a new tool for creators. Twitch Soundtrack is a curated collection of rights-cleared music that creators can use during streams.
Music is very important for creators on any platform, but it’s very frustrating for them not to be able to find music to use for their broadcasts. Twitch Soundtrack changes all that, giving creators a curated collection of rights-cleared music that they can integrate with their streaming software to separate their audio sources.
This way, creators can keep their channels safe from copyright strikes while creating great content and growing their following.
Twitch Soundtrack offers a huge library of music from “fresh, independent artists” that is cleared for listening during live streams. Music on Soundtrack is separated into its own audio channel so creators can play music during their livestreams without worrying about getting muted or getting copyright strikes on Twitch or elsewhere.
The library offers lots of diverse music “from the latest electronic and dance music in our ‘SoundPls’ playlist to chilled out lo-fi beats in our ‘Beats to Stream to’ playlist and everything in between,” and includes artists like Above & Beyond, mxmtoon, Porter Robinson, RAC, SwuM, and others.
Twitch Soundtrack’s Playlists and Stations are curated by Twitch staff, streamers, and industry partners, to expand the content offering with new Playlists and Stations regularly.
Twitch is first releasing an early version of Soundtrack compatible with OBS Studio v26.0 or later on PC. A later version with Twitch Studio & Streamlabs OBS compatibility will be available soon, and Twitch will continue to expand availability in the next few weeks.
Creators who are interested in trying Soundtrack can join the waitlist, choose their streaming software, and wait for an invitation to download. Musicians, labels, or publishers can also apply to get their music in Soundtrack.
