This article is for video editors, video producers, and video professionals that need to track stock music. It contains a free download of a stock music license tracking spreadsheet. Enjoy!
Recently I noticed a problem that I have as a video editor and video producer. There are a couple hundred stock music tracks I’ve downloaded and/or purchased over the years to use in all sorts of projects. But outside of a consistent file naming convention I had no way of tracking what is being used where. On top of that, there is other data that would be good to have in one place that’s associated with the music.
So I did something about it. Like what any good digitally-OCD person would do I made a spreadsheet. And I’d like to share it with you. Use the link below to get your stock music license tracking spreadsheet.
Go under File > Download then you can select a Microsoft Excel (.xlsx) to download and use for yourself. If you want to use it as a Google Sheet, make sure you’re signed into your Google account. Then under File choose Make a copy. That’ll save it to your Google Drive and you’ll be able to edit the Google Sheet.

There’s some sample data in the first couple of rows. Feel free to add or subtract columns to your own. If you have suggestions let me know in the comments!
I hope you find this stock music license tracking spreadsheet useful! Time for me to continue going through all my old files to backfill this thing…
If you ever want to support Edit Video Faster, giving a coffee or a burrito bowl would go a long way 😉💙
