“Where words fail, music speaks” Hans Christian Andersen once said and it’s hard to disagree. Today, music works with words and pictures really well, making them stronger and more emotional. Our first release of Fugue, a big collection of royalty free music for video production and design, showed that for many creators, this offer is on demand. So, today we are glad to roll out Fugue 2.0, the upgraded resource of high-quality audio tracks in various styles for video creators of any level. It’s just been released on Product Hunt, so welcome to join the discussion.
What’s New in Fugue 2.0?
As a quick reminder, Fugue presents a big (and constantly growing) collection of unique music tracks created by professional composers and classified for fast and easy search. The track you need can be chosen from the sets organized along three global parameters: themes, genres, and moods.
It’s hard to find better usability testing than feedback from real users of the product. After the first release, we’ve collected stats and analyzed what users do on the platform, what kinds of music are on demand and what problems may appear in interaction with the layout.
Based on all that stuff, Fugue 2.0 has new improved UI.
- The player controls and waveform were improved
- Users can listen to any part of a track at once
- All waveforms are on the screen
- the collection has grown: 555 new audio tracks have been added, as usual carefully picked.

How to Use Fugue?
There nothing hard, and nothing has changed since the first release. All the audio tracks on Fugue collection are free for a link both for personal and commercial use.

No doubt, we continue improving Fugue and here are the closest plans.
