For music when streaming live on Twitch, the stringent rules regarding the use of copyright materials make it difficult to play what you want. This means looking for outside sources of music that won’t get you in trouble. However, Twitch has its own music service that will ensure that anything you play from it will be DMCA-free named Twitch Soundtrack.
The platform offers you a wide variety of beats for any mood, including pop, rock, rap, hip-hop, electronica, dance, lo-fi, and more. New music is being added regularly, so you will be able to filter through what’s available and curate what you want to listen to for your stream. It’s broken down into Playlists to pick from and stations that will play an assortment of music at random from the chosen genre.
Soundtrack also includes a built-in feature that will configure your OBS Studio or Streamlabs OBS to allow for the music on the stream to not be present in VOD for the stream. During set up, simply proceed through the introduction with your stream software, and it should configure it for you.
The service is in open beta, meaning that anyone can download the client and begin using it. You can find the installer for the client through the Twitch Soundtrack website, and to access the service, log in with your Twitch account. After the introduction and setup, you will be ready to go.
If you did not configure it with the app, the music will play like any other music service through your main computer audio, so your desktop audio level will include the audio from Twitch Soundtrack.
