Explore and discover new music your own way
For every user and every search there’s a different process for finding the perfect track. Our Filter panel allows you to tailor your music search in a way that makes sense to you and your needs.
If you’re locked in to a specific time frame try our Edits filter for 15/30/60 second cuts.
Looking for “background music”? Our Versions filter can help you find tracks with and without vocals.
Elsewhere our Tempo and BPM filters will help you filter the speed and style of music in your search.
Need truly flexible music? You can filter your search exclusively for tracks with stems at the touch of a button.
Our filters are easily customizable; simply add as many as you please, mute them to test a new search without losing the work you’ve already tried, or remove the filters completely when you’re done with them.
