What is royalty free music?
Creative Commons is a license system that allows you to legally use “some rights reserved” music, movies, images, and other content. Creative Commons offers free copyright licenses that anyone can use to mark their creative work with the freedoms they want it to carry.
For instance, a musician might use a Creative Commons license to allow people to legally use their songs online, make copies for friends, or even use them in videos or make remixes for commercial and non-commercial projects.

Advantages of royalty free music
It is a quick and easy and legal way for music/sound creators to license their music themselves that provides users a secure way to add music/sound to their projects. Purchasers of music/sound under the Creative Commons License pay only one time for the track and license and can use the track endless times.

What is the best free recording software?
Apple GarageBand — Mac/iOS
Easy to use, and you can graduate from GarageBand to Apple’s Logic Pro X — which opens GarageBand projects exactly as you left them — beginning users are investing their time into an entire recording ecosystem. Logic operates much like GarageBand but gives greater flexibility in terms of arrangements/instrumentation and mixing/editing capabilities. There are true console and lane views for easier comping, pitch correction, track fades, and more.
Within Logic is one of the most comprehensive collections of virtual instruments and FX plug-ins we’ve ever seen in a DAW. There are amp sims, horns and strings, drum machines, and synths and keys just ripe for the plucking. Some of the more impressive sound engines are the included 14GB Alchemy sample synth library and Logic Pro X’s Drummer module, the latter of which pairs your sessions with dozens of virtual drummers who each bring a unique approach to every piece of music.
Where it really appeals to beginners (other than ease of use) is its awesome catalog of virtual instruments. Whereas most free software offers built-in instruments that sound like bargain bin guitars bought at a tag sale, GarageBand’s instruments are studio-quality.
It has a bit of a learning curve, but once you get the hang of it, you are good to go. Loaded with effects, high sound quality, tons of plugins, and comprehensive editing features.
If you have the supporting hardware to handle it, you can produce real studio-quality sound. Some of the built-in effects include an equalizer, pitch, delay, reverb, and fade in/out.
