How to add sounds to your content?

How to quickly and easily find and add sounds, music and audio

To add a sound from a library to your content, just drag and drop it on the Stage. It will not be visible there, but appear on the Timeline, right where the Playhead is (the vertical red bar):

There are several ways to add or upload sounds to your Personal Library in Moovly Studio:

  1. Record audio: record a sound, e.g. your voice, using the 'Record audio' button you find below the libraries. See the FAQ "How to record your voice" for more details.

2. Upload a sound from your computer to your Personal Objects library: click the 'Upload media' button and select an audio file from a folder on your computer. 

When you add music or sounds to your project, please make sure you have the legal right to use that audio!

3. Add sound using Moovly's mobile appThis Help question explains how you can use the app to record your voice or import other sounds from your smartphone or tablet to your Personal Library.

4. Find sounds in the Storyblocks library: Moovly offers you more than 100,000 royalty-free* sounds and music tracks in the Storyblocks library. Open the Extended Library View by clicking the expand icon:

Within the Storyblocks library you can choose to upload Sounds or Music. You could also enter a search term (e.g. 'Background' or 'applause' or 'soft music'). After having chosen a sound you can add it to your project by clicking 'Insert in Project':

Once you have added a sound, it will appear in the Timeline. You can change its timing, length or volume and even apply Fade in and out effects. See the "How to edit sounds" FAQ for more details.

We support the following audio formats: flac, m4a, mp3, wav, ogg & wma.

*Royalty-free means that the audio content is provided under a royalty-free basis. In other words, you don't have to pay the composer a fee to use the content in your projects. However, certain industries (broadcasts are one) are governed by copyright/performance rights organizations (PROs). If the music composers also registered their music with a PRO, then a royalty must be paid to the PRO by the company under a separate agreement. In short, our royalty-free license does not cancel out any PRO obligations.

It is therefore required to comply with the regulations of your local/national PRO. More information is available on the AudioBlocks website (AudioBlocks is that part of the Storyblocks offering that includes sounds, loops and music):
