Month after month, Anchor rolls out new features and tools that make podcasting easier and cheaper than ever. Continuing its mission of “democratizing creation for podcasters of all experience levels,” the podcast creation/publishing platform is back with another set of useful tools in Smart Background Music.

Smart Background Music is a library featuring over "100 beautiful, podcast-ready background tracks" that podcasters can use for free with no commercial restrictions.

When one of these tracks is added to a podcast, the volume of it will adjust accordingly. For an example, at the beginning of a podcast, the track will be at full volume. Once the intro is over, the track's volume will decrease so that the podcaster’s audio can be heard clearly. When a segment is over, the track's volume will increase and eventually fade out.

"This means your background music sounds really polished, never outshines your voice, and takes just a second to apply," Anchor wrote in a statement.

In addition to Smart Background Music, the company is giving podcasters a variety of new sound effects and interludes that can be added to their podcasts. These can be used to punctuate elements in a story or translate to a new topic.

If the provided music, sound effects or interludes aren't enough, podcasters have the option to import their own background music, sounds or interludes, which can be favorited for easy use.

Stay tuned; it’s only a matter of time before it rolls out another useful feature or tool.
