Where do you get the background music for your videos?
on Jan 26, 2013 at 11:56:18 am

Hi all,

Don't know if I'm posting this in the right forum. If not, admin may kindly move to the appropriate forum.

My question is where do you people get the music scores for your videos? Is there a place where one can buy those music? Or are there royalty-free music that I can download for personal use? By personal, I mean that the videos I will be producing won't be used for commercial purposes or the likes.

Any tips?

There are hundreds of production music companies and they're all on the internet.

There are needle drop fee based options - pay for ea. track used based on what type of use, fees vary.

Buy a cd of music and have unlimited use.

Buy a track and have unlimited use.

If you have GarageBand, go to the loops section and look at the category "jingles." You'll find a few hundred tracks of all varieties that you're free to use in your productions. It's not KillerTracks quality, but if you have a client with limited budget, it's an option.

KillerTracks, for example, for a internal corporate video, would cost a couple hundred for a track, would most likely be licensed just for that video. Even cutdowna or different versions would have to be relicensed. The fees get higher if you're going to use it on the web like YouTube or Vimeo. You're basically being charged for the audience size.

Some sites, like Revostock I think, are royalty free- but it and you have the right to use it in productions. Digital juice would fall into that realm. It's all subjective, but generally you get what you pay for.

If you'd like to pay for songs to upload onto Youtube and Vimeo, http://www.songfreedom.com and http://www.triplescoopmusic.com also have selections. Again, they are for single uses and you would have to relicense them for separate videos.

You can find them everywhere, downloading from youtube (if you are just making internet videos or personal videos) but if you are tying to do independent films or any of that nature you will have to deal with the copyright of certain music or buy royalty free music like what has been mentioned above.

http://www.smartsound.com is another good place to find royalty free music
