I know TAM, SENTIVE, Amacha, Tengoku Reien...
But no Maou Damashii and H-MIX?!

Maou Damashii (http://maoudamashii.jokersounds.com/)
H-MIX (http://www.hmix.net/) - Featured in another thread in LSF, if I remember...
These are two most websites I often find in almost RPG readmes (?)

Also these:
Senses Circuit (http://www.senses-circuit.com/)
DOVA SYNDROME (http://dova-s.jp)
Presence of Music (http://www.presence-of-music.com/)

This thread helps a lot! Thanks for having this thread in the first place~

Upgraded, the list contains 75 websites. I clarified and simplified the rules the best as I can.
Two websites are no longer available: Theater Music "Ladybug" and Tanapi Center
Yuki Toshi closed off the music page since July 2015.

Edit: つくもぐぶろぐ, Flat 9th Library, and world_creation are no longer available.

Has anyone ever considered a royalty free website called NASH Music Library? It's in both Japanese and English and has awesome songs.

However they are pricey as you have to pay for them but I think it's well worth it.


I have an account there myself and I've seen their songs in many different anime's I've watched. Now this website it probably best for
those of you who can afford it... But they have over thousands of songs, both vocal and non as well as sound effects.
I forgive and forget. Because I have a good heart and terrible memory
