Quick Search Help
Use quotation marks to refine your searches. Example: Type in “You mean the world to me” in quotations and it will search tracks that have that phrase in the description.
Use the “Lock” button to the left of the search bar to refine your searches. Example: Type in “Rock” and after all results show up, click the “Lock” button to the left of the search bar to lock that search. Then, you can type in whatever you’d like in the search bar, and it will only search out of that original Rock search.
Use keyword AND to refine your searches. Example: Piano AND Violins will search all tracks that have Piano and Violins in the track description.
Use an *(asterisk) as a wildcard character. Example: A search for “patriot” will search any word that begins with “patriot”, such as patriotic and patriotism.
Use keyword OR to refine your searches Example: “Orchestral OR Dramatic” will search all tracks that have either Orchestral or Dramatic in the description.
Use keyword NOT to refine your searches. Example: “Classical NOT Piano” will search all classical tracks that do not have Piano in them.
