|Introducing Gary Wolk and Justin Nihiser|
Gary writes sound-a-like music and is very good at it. Sound-a-like, or knock-off music, is music that sounds as close as possible to famous songs and styles without infringing on the copyrights of the original works. Gary’s tracks capture the unique flavor of the music of the superstars like Otis Redding, The Beach Boys, The Stray Cats, U2, Bruce Springsteen, The Allman Bros Band, Neil Young, Steely Dan, Pink Floyd, Tower of Power, well, you get the idea.
Justin has written and placed music for Coke, Groupon, Burger King, Casio, Wii, A&E, History, MTV, E!, CW’s Hellcats, The Big Bang Theory, and numerous other clients and we are happy to be distributing his high qulaity royalty free music.
One of the unique things about Justin’s catalog is that he sells each track for only $9.95.
I’m not sure why he is doing that but there you go.
|Musicloops.com now has over 12,000 songs in its database and we’re adding an average of 150 new tracks a week.

Three new sites that I recently found offering free royalty free music to use in your commercial projects with no fees or hassles from the man…
Cameron Music is offering a selection of tracks for free use in commercial projects. Some of the suspenseful tracks are pretty good, others are kind of midi sounding but all useful for low budget type projects.
Sonny Boo is a filmmaker who is offering a very nice selection of music tracks for absolutely free use in any commercial project. Very nice of him….
I had seen the Purple Planet website a few years ago when they were selling their music and just noticed that all of their music is now free for website type uses (including Youtube) with only a credit to the composer in return.
They also ask for donations but it is not required. The music is pretty cool too, check it out…
Free royalty free stock footage is hard to find but we have compiled a list of some of the better sites that are offering a selection of video clips available for download and use in personal and commercial projects.

At Partners In Rhyme we deliver all of the audio our customers order in WAV format. Some of our customers need their audio in MP3 format and we help them with instructions on how to easily convert their audio to any format they need using free iTunes software.
For those of your who do not want to download software to convert your audio there is a new free online audio conversion site just for you called Media.io
To convert using iTunes follow the instructions below:
Converting to MP3 is very easy. If you don’t already have it download the free app iTunes (Mac or PC) here:
Load all of the sounds into iTunes (simply drag and drop in most operating systems) then choose iTunes > Preferences
Click on the ‘General’ tab, then click on the ‘Import Settings’ button and choose ‘MP3 Encoder’.
You can also choose the quality setting you want or choose ‘custom’ if you have a specific setting in mind.
Click OK. Then go back to the library, select all of your tracks that you want to convert, then choose Advanced > Create MP3 Version.
Once that is done you will have an MP3 version of the track in your iTunes music folder.
