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.
Partners In Rhyme is now actively looking for sound designers who have catalogs of sound effects that they would like to distribute through our network of websites.
We have been working very hard for last year on our www.sound-effect.com site and it is now working really well and has been moved to a new faster server due to the traffic load it has been receiving.
We have uploaded 5000 sound effects into the database and would like to hear from any sound designers who might be interested in contributing.
We offer a 60/40 (in favor of the contributor) non-exclusive deal.
Please contact me via the www.sound-effect.com contact page if you are interested.
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.
This is basically just a plug for my friend’s website at Nature Library Stock Footage.
You can download free video footage and check out the large library of beautiful nature footage including incredible time lapse shots.
Hi, my name is Mark and I own a few popular royalty free content websites.
We have been helping musicians distribute their music for over 10 years now and I would like to use this forum to share some thoughts and experiences and hopefully spark some discussion in regards to the distribution of royalty free music and royalty free content in general.
The main focus of this blog will be royalty free music but will also include images, video, and sound effects.
We will also be archiving all of our free royalty free content downloads here for easy access from one source.
