Mik TunePocket Composer

Hi, I’m Mik, one of TunePocket music composers. I went though our growing catalog of royalty free music and picked my top 10 favorite tracks that will work great in any modern PBX or IVR system. Watch the video below or jump straight to the track list.

Here are 3 simple tips to help you pick the best music for on hold use:

1. Choose music that aligns with your industry, business, or brand.

2. Keep it steady. Choose music with steady beat and avoid sudden drops in volume or tempo.

3. Keep it simple. Avoid music with complex arrangements and lots of details and nuances, it will just sound messy due to the lower bandwidth of the phone line.
