    Royalty free doesn't necessarily mean free of charge.  It just means you can do whatever you want with it once you do pay for it.

    If you have Adobe Soundbooth there is a service attached called "Scores" - window/scores - you can download a lot of royalty free music there.

    The musician, Moby, generously offers some of his music at no charge and royalty free to independents and students.

     

    http://www.mobygratis.com/film-music.html

     

    You can listen to any of the free tracks and then submit a request detailing your project. I got my request approved within 24 hours. His eclectic music is not going to be a good match for every project, but you have to admire his support for budding film-makers.

    Some have music for sale (terms of use vary), and some have free pieces. It just depends.

     

    Some are kind of hybrid, like the Muvipix site. If you just sign-up (free), you can buy original music. If you buy a subscription, you can download that music and much more in the way of Functional Content, for no additional charge.

     

    So, it depends.

     

    Good luck,

    Simon,

     

    There are also many programs that allow one to "create" their music, mostly via loopology. Programs, like Adobe Audition, Magix Music Maker, Magix Music Studio and other, install with all sorts of elements, that can be easily combined. There are also some older music "creation" programs, like the discontinued MS Music Producer (probably still available on the Internet - be sure to get and install the patch, prior to first launch), and Jam, that use MIDI to create music.

     

    Lots of choices in that vein.

     

    Good luck,

     

    Hunt

    Go to the Smartsound web site and download the free Express Tracks software.  It includes 5 free music tracks.  If you do not like those you can download one of your choice (you can preview their selections) for $30.

    good listing , but app app..

     

    where did Steven Gotz go ?

     

    his knowledge - not to mention his attitude - will be missed here. At least from my side !

    Do not know about SB, but there are ~ 5,000 "loop" files in Audition. One can use loopology to create all sorts of music, and can set most of the parameters as needed.

     

    Good luck,

    I am also a really, really big fan of SmartSound. This ARTICLE will give some background, and methods of using their music. Until recently, I had almost their entire library of music, accumulated over the years, and always when they were on sale. Looking now, I see that there are many additions, so I need to sit down with my spreadsheet, and my credit card, and take advantage of any sale going on.

     

    There is almost no genre of music, that is not well covered. Also, there are variations for most cuts, and with the Multi-track music, and Sonicfire Pro 5 Scoring edition (not the free version), one then has an infinite number of variations on each of the 5 - 7 included variations - we're talking close to infinity here.

     

    With much of their music, one can buy and download individual tracks, though I do not believe that they offer that option with the Multi-track cuts.

     

    Spend an afternoon just listening, and you WILL find something that will work in their collection.

     

    Good luck,

    The last that I heard from Steven was about a year ago. He had moved for a new job, but seemed about to move again. He was being offered a position out of video production (software coding?), and also mentioned a very limited Internet connection.

     

    I do agree, his input is missed, and we all wish him well,

    Those are really good Bill...

     

    I'm also looking for some music.. I found a site that uses a lot of royalty free songs, but they are good, popular songs sun/performed by other artists. Any body know where to get songs like that?

     

    He's got popular songs, performed by unknown artists that are really great.

     

    Where do I get music like that?

    I have not run across such, but they probably exist. One consideration is that there are many layers of ownership with music: composer, arranger, publisher and also artist. Regardless of who does the performance, those other aspects need to be considered as well.

     

    Good luck, and maybe someone will have some URL's for you. I will add them to the "list."

    I like the use of YouTube video to show the music.

     

    Nice Job.

    Thanks GLenn. Appreciate you taking time to post your compliments about our music.

    Current all the music on the site is completely free to use plus to note it is royalty free too so no cue sheets.

    There will be a paid section but the free royalty free music section will still be there.

    In fact we will be adding more and loads of free sound effects too.

    Watch the space http://www.jewelbeat.com/ for more free music soon.

    Appreciate if you could pass the word about. Thanks GLenn.

    I was just commenting on how Jewelbeat used YouTube to show off their own music.

     

    By showing it with YouTube it allowed Jewelbeat to create little videos on how the music might be used and let you hear the music in an easy way without downloading anything.

     

    But of course YouTube will start placing their own advertisements if the video starts to get popular.

     

    Also Jewelbeat could sign up for YouTube for one of the Ad programs so they could get a cut.

     

    I havent read up on it in awhile but I think you have to get so many hits before you can start on that program but maybe they have changed the rules.

     

    Jewelbeat needs to look into YouTubes Ad program and at least have it in place for when the hits get larger they can take advantage of it.

     

    By giving away FREE items the hits to each video will only go up with time.

     

    A few pennies here and there could add up.  Its better then nothing.

     

     

     

    Hope you find the music you are looking for Simon.

    Depending on your budget, I would

    consider taking a look at manchestermusiclibrary.com

     

    I know they have a good collection of public domain classical, under "Classical Masterworks"

     

    Hope this helps!

    Hi!

     

    The best way to start with adobe audition is to download royalty-free loops, music beds and music sessions created by adobe experts especially for adobe audtion.

     

    This package is called "Loopology" and is available for download here for every one who purchased Adobe Audition. This is really a MASSIVE package and will take some time to download, but is has a lot of loops to play with.

     

    Hope it helps. Enjoy!

    Welcome to the forum.

     

    Can't speak for Audition CS 5.5, but with previous editions, about 5000 Loopology elements shipped with the program.

     

    I also agree that Audition is a wonderful source of original music, with Loopology. It takes a moment to wrap one's head around the technology, and then a bit of listening to find the right elements, but is both fun and rewarding.

    > I have the CS5 Master Collections, It seems Like Audition is a Separate Program.

     

     

    Audition CS5.5 is included with CS5.5 Master Collection.

    The loopology wav clips can be opened in Premiere, and if you want to loop them through a sequence you can just add any audio effects you want and then copy/paste. However, if you have Audition 3, that provides a much more versatile, convenient and intuitive approach to using the loops. Not all Au3 features were ported to Au5.5, and among those are most of the loopology features.
