There’s No Excuse Not to Find the Perfect Audio
You know that crippling feeling when thousands of options are available to choose from? It’s called decision fatigue. But with our powerful search and filtering capabilities, finding the perfect music and SFX in our robust catalog is fast, easy and dare we say refreshing.
Whatever Your Style of Search, ALIBI's Got Your Back
Search by Era
From 60s soul, to 80s pop rock, to modern songs and FX, search by era to capture the sound of a generation.
Search by Mood
Looking for something happy, sad, dark, intriguing or playful? Search by mood to elicit the exact emotion your project needs.
Search By Tempo
Make hearts pound with a very fast tempo or set a calm tone with a slow tempo. Whatever you’re searching for, our catalog is up to speed.
Search By Length
Cut down your search results by filtering for tracks over 30 seconds. Or limit your results to short cuts and bumpers by filtering for tracks under 31, 16 or 5 seconds.
Search By BPM
While tempo search is a more subjective approach, BPM (beats per minute) enables you to search an objective measurement of speed and pace.
Search by Tap Tempo
Better yet, simply click or tap the approximate BPM you're going for & let ALIBI's robust search engine do the rest.
Search by Lyric
Interested in adding songs with lyrics to your video project? Try doing a simple lyric search to see tracks that contain the words you’re looking for.
Use Negative Search
When your search field is still too crowded, add a hyphen before any search term to exclude it from results. For example, -drums will remove all results tagged with “drums”.
Search by Phrase
Looking for something ultra specific? Simply add quotation marks around any group of words to generate results that match your phrase exactly. ie. “Hip Hop Cello”

Drill Down to Specifics with File Data
We’re a tad obsessive about data. Every single ALIBI audio file (including alternate mixes and stems) is individually metadata’d and scrubbed of irrelevant keywords to enable more precise search results.
At the request of production companies and networks, we can deliver full sheets of catalog data in any format you require. Plus, each audio file contains over 400 columns of data that can be parsed down and organized based on your system requirements.
