Need free Royalty free music for video.

Does anyone out there know of any good sites that offer either free, or next to free, background music that I can use. I need it for promotional videos (the videos themselves will not be sold) that will be used as a background video during a presentation. I have already found a couple of half ways decent sites, but am still looking, as I have not yet found exactly what I need.

Thanks
Mike

The best site I have found for inexpensive background tracks is audiojungle.net
Good cuts are usually $11-14

If you're going to use royalty free music try and look for agreements that place no restrictions on where you use it or how many times, as many do.
Here's one I use, Royalty Free Music from Partners In Rhyme

Re: Need free Royalty free music for video.

Use an established production music provider that's been around a while.

Several years ago, I invested in several CD's from Chameleon Music Production Library. I hadn't heard of them before, but they were featured in an issue of Video Toaster User Magazine. Seemed like a safe choice.

Recently, I was about to use some of their music in a 48HFP video; but the 48HFP organizers require you to provide them with a way to contact the publisher of any royalty free music you use in the video. I tried to find the website for that company, but couldn't. It was as if they never existed. Sure, there were several other companies with "Chameleon Music" in their names, but not the company from which I purchased the CD's. So I can't use any of their music in a 48HFP video.

Come to think of it, should I be using their music at all? Suppose I use their music in a commercial project, and someone claims that THEY created the music and I stole it? How do I prove that I have the legal rights to it? I can't refer them to a non-existent company. Without the Chameleon Music Production Library company to back me up, I'd be taking a chance.

Moral of the story: Make sure the company you buy from is well established, and likely to be around for a long time.

P.S. -- I'm currently using Music 2 Hues. They, and others like Music Bakery have been around a long time.

I have never gone wrong with Kevin MacLeod (Incompetech) or Jason Shaw (Audionautics). It's real music, totally free, or for a much-appreciated donation. JewelBeat can be good, and is cheap. Try musopen for classical.

Stock20 is good. Some of it can sound 80s soft porny, but I do recall them having a few Latin themed.
