That depends on what country you are in. There is no such service available in the US, for example.

Not sure about what is available in the US, hopefully it will make someone's music choice easier here in the UK

Re: Royalty free music services to recommend?

I just got 200 songs from Popular Music Library For Photographers And Videographers - Songfreedom.com for $400. That is cheap! Just sign up for the year program and get 50% off to total $400 and use the promo code DR

That is only $2 a song and license is perpetual and the tracks are top notch.

I also use KillerTracks.com but it cost $200 a track, but when working with corporate clients they will pay for it. The music is awesome and cheap when dealing with corporate clients.

See my video and tell me what you think of the song:

Re: Royalty free music services to recommend?

Hi Guys

Smartsound is still the most convenient, especially when you need to slot an exact length track into a clip. I still find that the older disk libraries work better for me than the multitrack ones (and they are cheaper too) For weddings you can often get away with around 6 libraries and that covers most bridal preps and other areas when background music is needed.

Remember you can also use the same track for multiple weddings..it might sound boring to you since you have used the same track on the last 3 weddings but remember the brides are unlikely to have heard each other's tracks..I tend to gravitate between "Love Stories" and "Romance and Memories" more often than not!!!

Thanks for the recommendation. We are interested in knowing why you like the older, single layer music better.
