Pretzel Rocks Music

Paid subscription

In one of the previous articles we have already described why services with royalty-free music can be most helpful for any Twitch streamer. This time we’ll look at another music app that provides background music for you to include into your streams on Twitch, YouTube and Mixer not being afraid of strikes from rightholders.

What is Pretzel Rocks?

Pretzel Rocks is a service for listening to music. You can enjoy their music both directly from the browser, and with the help of special app installed on your computer. The main advantage of this application is that it is free to use and is therefore ideal for beginner streamers who are not yet ready to invest heavily in the promotion of their channel. In order to listen to music from Pretzel Rocks for free you only need to specify what track is playing now on your stream and give a link to Pretzel Rocks.

Music Genres

The music on Pretzel Rocks is divided by genre. You can listen to the list of all tracks in the application as well as tracks of a certain genre. The presented genres are EDM, Chill, Chiptune, Pop, Upbeat, Ambient, Hip-Hop, Rock, Epic, Happy, Mixed and Hype. You can also select instrumental music only if you find vocal in songs distracting and mixing with your voice.

The basis of music on Pretzel Rocks, as well as on other similar services, is electronic. Of 183 hours of all music 119 hours are devoted to EDM and 73 hours to Upbeat. There aren’t much tracks in the genres of hip-hop (17 hours) and rock (13 hours). However, Pretzel Rocks website is constantly updated and you can hope that over time the predominance of electronic music will not be so noticeable.

Useful Functions

On Pretzel Rocks website or in their app you can create your own playlists from the songs you like for different moods or for different games.

If you feel the song is your jam – you can like it and this track will be saved in a special playlist.

Also you can dislike a song that is not for your taste and it will no longer be played or shown to you. Be careful, dislikes on the site are not removable and if you accidentally put it, you can’t do anything about it.

Pretzel Rocks is also convenient for its seamless integration with other streaming tools including, for example, Twitch Interactive. After installing Pretzel Rocks app you won’t need to worry about how it will react to other programs, which will save a lot of time and nerves.

Chat Bot

Another undoubted advantage of Pretzel Rocks is their chat bot. It can respond to the audience asking which track is playing right now and can announce next tracks. Another available function is the story, where you can see what tracks have been played before. With chat bot you won’t to be distracted by questions about current music and your musical taste. Also, you can allow chat bot to give viewers an opportunity to order music playing during your Twitch stream. It’s a great interaction with your viewers that will show what they actually like more.

Hotkeys

Both in the application and on Pretzel Rocks website you can switch music using hotkeys. It’s very convenient because you can manage your music without being distracted from the game. Hotkeys allow you to turn the music on and off, switch the track to the next or go back to the previous one, adjust the volume of the music and put likes and dislikes.

In order to use hotkeys on Pretzel Rocks website you should have a tab with music opened. Or you can just use their app. To use hotkeys in the application you don’t need to keep the tab constantly opened, which makes it more useful compared to the website option. You can also customize these hotkeys in the app and make it most comfortable for yourself.

Unfortunately, it’s worth noting that hotkeys in the application sometimes react with delay (at least at the time I was testing it) and basic configuration of hotkeys is not intuitive.

Subscription will give you the opportunity to support musicians working on the project and make it even better. Also, subscribing to Pretzel Rocks, you will get better music quality, download links and will be able to participate in the advertising campaigns of the application.

On their website you can find a lot of instructions on how to act in this or that situation. For example, if YouTube or Twitch think that you are violating someone’s copyright while listening to music with Pretzel Rocks, there’s a bunch of people in Pretzel Rocks that will react immediately and solve the issue for you.
