I found another website that has a small but high quality collection of free music that the composer is making available for use in blogs, podcasts, videos, etc, completely royalty free. He only requires attribution, check it out here:
Partners In Rhyme has been selling royalty free music online since 1996 and as of January 1st 2008 Partners In Rhyme has become incorporated to Partners In Rhyme, Inc.
January and February have been record breaking months in terms of sales for us. Nearly triple the revenue from the same time last year. Our composers are benefiting from this boom as well, our total composer payouts have been over $10,000 for each month with our highest paid composer earning over $3500 in a single month.
Our policy of not requiring our clients to report the use of music from our catalog to performing rights agencies and depending more on frequency of sales seems to be working. Our composers are actually making a living and their checks are bigger and more regular than any back-end payments might have been (had they been reported properly which is rarely the case).
If our clients want to submit cue sheets we of course supply them with all necessary information but we do not require it.
Looking forward to another great year for us at Partners In Rhyme, Inc. and for our roster of 38 (and growing) composers.
One of our visitors mentioned our royalty free music clips page in his blog here Caddickisms
He also has links to other sources for free music and describes his experiences in using the different formats and types of free music.
As December comes to a close business usually slows down as people go on vacation or generally take a break from work. I know from our websites and from what our composers tell me that the last 1/2 of December is a bit of slow across the board.
This December however we have done very well with our royalty free Christmas music sales. I am sure other royalty free sites have a spike in their Christmas genre sales as well.
Below is a review of some of the sites and prices where you can purchase and download royalty free Christmas music, starting with ours.
This is a new collection for us and it sold really well this year. It is a large collection of Christmas music for producers who need more than just one holiday tune. The collection includes 24 tracks some with edits and loops. It comes with a variety of genres including hip hop, techno, traditional and classical.
If you only need one or two Christmas tracks our musicloops.com site has a wide variety from many different composers: Christmas and Holiday Music
Prices range from $14.95 to $39.95, edits and loops are available.
