Where to buy Royal Free Music

Hi All,

I am in need of some royal free music and loops for broadcasting. Will someone please tell me as which companies offer a good range of selections either in U.S. or Canada?


Thanks
Matthew

After two years of sifting through lots of bad "free" music I finally broke down and bought from these two:

SmartSound Software

Nice to see you here Tom!!

I have been using SmartSound for years and for me it's really hard to beat as the music is very professional. However the initial cost is high at $99 per library but they often run specials too!! The advantage of being able to let the software "compose" the song to fit the track exactly is a big advantage for me.
Cinescore is on special but I found it was more suited to industrial type productions and SS has more orchestral style libraries which suit my wedding videos better.

I also find that the single layer disks (cheaper too!) work better for me than the multitrack ones but I guess that depends on your gendre.

I like the multitrack ones, I can mix killer discrete 5.1 surround audio by exporting each instrument.

Hi Tom

That's a good idea!!! I actually have some multi disks. I rather liked the idea of having stock music on my HDD and it's a little heavy if you put nearly 3GB of data per library!!

I must try the 5.1 idea!! Even if I have to run libraries from DVD

Something else I do Chris, with the multi-tracks, is create a duplicate track underneath each one, combine the L,R channels on the duplicate, then use shelf filters to direct low frequency to the LFE channel, and for the original track, another shelf filter so that bass isn't being doubled, i.e. highs to the mains, lows to the LFE, for each multitrack. For the highs, you can bias the sounds toward whichever speakers front and rear give the sound mix you like.

Then export the file with Vegas AC3 Pro encoder. You can really get staggeringly full bodied discrete 5.1 mixes from the multi-track titles.

Your question would probably have been better posted in the Audio Forum. Here is a link to a thread posted there:
