Soundtrap.com is a Chrome based web app that lets you record sound or create loop based sequences on any laptop or PC. It has a simple interface but a fair bit of power underneath. You can create sound tracks for videos, learn the basics of sequencing dance tracks, record singing or instrumental playing, import sounds, apply effects, and many other features. What is particularly interesting about Soundtrap is that more than one person can work on a track. This opens the possibility of students working together in groups during the evenings, at weekends, or even just across the classroom. It is free to store 5 songs, but you can download completed ones as MP3s – so you should have plenty of scope. You can create some decent recordings with the loops provided for free and these should certainly cover the needs of most students up to the end of Keystage 3. Once you are into the older age groups, they may want more loops to explore with. It generally works pretty well and is worth a try.

The music in the YouTube Audio Library is music that you can download to use in projects online and offline. You can search the library of music according to genre, mood, instrument, or duration. How to Save your YouTube Videos to Google Drive You can download all your YouTube videos in their original format and save the files directly to your Google Drive with the help of Takeout.
