Introduction

Do you want to use a music clip in your presentation? Where can you get some great clips? And would they be copyright-free? Will they cost the earth and more? Finally, is it an effective strategy to use music at all in the first place?

These questions are not uncommon. Anyone who has thoughts on including some music clips in PowerPoint presentations does have a list of similar questions. In this article, we'll look at a vendor of royalty music clips, and answer those questions at the same time.

First, we'll look at the whole music concept. Yes, an appropriate music track can enrich most presentations. It can even hold the attention of the audience. However, getting the right kind of music for the presentation in terms of duration, quality, availability and copyright is very important, Opuzz, the music service that we are reviewing on this page can help you attain this objective.

The Music Clips

Opuzz provides music clips with multiple edit versions, extra options, and music loops. These allow flexibility in the usage of these clips. Each track is available in edit versions of 10, 15, 30, and 60 seconds, full mix, alternate mixes, stingers and multiple loop versions. These variations enable users to mix and match sounds.

For example, the stingers can be used as transition sounds in PowerPoint, and the loops can be used within the slides themselves. And yes, the intros and outros can be used for the first and last slides. The result would be a presentation with a coordinated background score that provides many more music choices.

Using Opuzz

You can start previewing all tracks in the Opuzz library without the need to register. All tracks can be previewed in its entirety or downloaded so you know exactly what you get before purchase. The voice watermark on the preview tracks will not be there in the final purchase tracks. By registering as a member (free), you are given some free tracks to start off with.

Viv sent us a few samples, and the quality was amazing. They worked flawlessly in our presentations. A word of caution here: don't use a background music score in every presentation. Some presentations are more suitable than others. These include scenarios such as:

  • A few intro slides before a speaker led presentation
  • A exhibition or kiosk style presentation
  • A photo album presentation
  • An interactive presentation
  • A corporate launch presentation
