search by length of song?


#1

So I have a few video projects on the horizon and my goal is to keep them all under 1 minute in length, but there doesn’t seem to be a way to find music that fits this criteria, except by chance discovery. Is there a way to search for song tracks that are of a particular length of time?

If not, this would be very useful; if so, how?

Once music is established based on length of time, then a further search by theme would be very useful (although the titles used by composers are indeed very good).


Ideally I first create a concept for a video, then find the music that fits that concept. This allows me to refine the concept based on the inspiration that the music provides and allows me to create a beautifully integrated video. Because length of time can be critical to the message and influence the type of video footage that is created (or edited), it’s imperative to find the right music quickly so the project(s) can proceed without delay.

If I’m not mistaken, there’s no such option currently (although the improved search engine is supposedly being developed by the Envato marketplaces development team). However, I believe I’ve seen somebody explaining about a “hack” which helps achieve searching by the track length, but I can’t really remember how to do it. Maybe somebody else knows?

I think that if you send a message to the composer and ask him to make a “shortcut” of the original song you´ll meet with positive answers :slight_smile:

Good luck with your video projects!

CHA!

Yes :slight_smile: For example: http://audiojungle.net/browse/attributes/length/1:00

Good luck with your videos!

There is a somewhat clumsy way to do this. Select a category that might work (say “Cinematic”) and then search by price. Next, look at the address bar and find where it says “page=1” and change the “1” to “20” and hit enter. You’ll see lots of tracks priced at $8; you can of course visit surrounding pages for other items that are in this price range, and therefore in the general time frame you’re looking for. Not very pretty, but perhaps it will help in some cases.

thanks everyone for your responses, yes these tips will help.

Thanks @PaBlikMM, I like that idea of requesting a short version, especially if I like the theme of a piece.

Interesting @ClassicBeauty to find the price ranges of a composer, that the $8 range roughly equates to shorter pieces, I’ll give it a try.

I’ll also check out all your work. I tend to bookmark first then if it’s right will make a purchase. Thanks again all.

I would also like to request a feature to search by track duration! That would greatly help my searching.

Yep it would be great a search by length, and BPM also !
And why not by instruments also…
Maybe one day :slight_smile:

It is actually possible to search by bpm or length.
  • Search for BPM: http://audiojungle.net/browse/attributes/bpm/ (type the bpm you want here)
  • Search for length: http://audiojungle.net/browse/attributes/length/ (type the length you want here)

Nice, but how if I want a max length or a min BPM…

That’s kind of a roundabout, band-aid solution, but will do for now I suppose. The major detriment to that method is you can’t then narrow it down by category or any other attribute also.
