    "YouTube is also providing some 7,500 royalty-free sound effects and background music tracks too and they're available right this instant."

    Crappy compressed quality, most at 128kbps. There's an infinite number of good sounding full-resolution WAV tracks out there at affordable prices if you look around. And many starving composers who would gladly work on modest productions at economical rates.

    I had a run through a bunch of the youtube tracks and wasn't that impressed with sound quality, or knowing that they will become so ubiquitous that using a piece for your work instantly categorises it as low-cost amateur.

    I generally use www.premiumbeat.com for royalty free and reasonably priced themes and beds.

    For royalty free music try https://www.amazingmusictracks.com/

    They have an extensive music library with music in all types of moods and genres and it's very affordable. They also just launched a section with music for free.
