In your opinion. Where is the best place to find production music. Royalty free or music that we can license.
We are looking for music you might hear on Mtv commercials, Apple, VHI
Or music you might see in videos like this

I need something hip. And most sites I go 2 sort of suck.
Thanks

Mine Grosse Gott in Himmel, but that was some spazzy transition choice in that little promo! And way over-used. Should come with a warning not to be watched by epileptics!

That said, the music was nothing special at all; you can make that stuff up yourself for free with Sonicfire or Garageband, Soundtrack, Acid Pro or any of the music looping tools. If that's too much work, Digital Juice has a lot of cheap tracks that can be re-edited and remixed in similar fashion.

I'm still a big fan of the "Video Helper" collections for that type of work.

I'm an in-house corporate video guy at a wholesaler. I use Sonicfire Pro and I have a couple dozen of there Strata series disks. A lot of the music sounds like bad porn but there's a bunch of pretty good stuff in there. You can grab just the drum & base tracks if you like or make a loop or very easily customize a whole song or selected tracks to any duration.
Anyway, that's what I like to use, it's so easy and a pretty good value.

I know Mark already mentioned Digital Juice, sorry if I’m beating a dead horse but I love their tracks. Check out this Creative COW review for Stack Traxxs.

[Mark Suszko] "the music was nothing special at all; you can make that stuff up yourself for free with Sonicfire or Garageband, Soundtrack, Acid Pro or any of the music looping tools"

I was about to come in amongst you on that one Mark but then I watched the piece. The soundtrack sounded like my 10 year old nephew did it in Garage Band. Now I'm all about simplicity but that just plain stunk.

we have used Firstcom forever. It costs about $1200 a year, but their music sounds the least porn-like of any of the libraries I have evaluated. Occasionally a client says "the music sounds outdated" but everyone is entitled to their opinion.

Quick note, Stack Traxxs are on sale this week, 10 volumes for $149.95 (Reg. $49.95 per volume)
If you find this post after their sale check back, they have great deals all the time. And, no I have nothing to do with Stack Traxxs, I just really like the product.
