We all know that choosing the right music can make or break a project. Music is integral to the success of any audio/video assignment. It can be even harder to choose a whole library. There are all different types of royalty free music libraries on the market but you need the one that suits your type of production work. Some companies offer a yearly subscription or credit system-that's okay for the short term, but when you need lots of music and a license that doesn't limit you, it's time to purchase an entire production library.
Flash has long offered the best end user experience for digital content websites. With a robust feature set and near universal acceptance, the decision to go with Flash audio players for our music was simple. That was then. Now with a proliferation of gadgets, tablets and every conceivable method of previewing content, Flash is becoming less popular because it requires a lot of horsepower. It is non-existent on devices such as the iPad and iPhone, and has increasingly suffered from stability issues. While we feel it still offers the best end user experience for Stockmusic.net, we are soon going to be allowing users to choose between a DHTML version of the site and a Flash version. This option will be available for customers using a modern version of Chrome, Safari, IE or Firefox. We only suggest that you choose this option if you are having issues with Flash. A new green button will appear in the upper right area of the screen when this option is available.
A DHTML version of the site has been available for mobile devices and has been the default for iPad and other non-flash devices, so we have been testing it for some time. We hope that this new option will allow you to continue to find Stockmusic.net to be a quick, intuitive and useful royalty free music site long into the future.
Did you find yourself singing along with the newest Christmas ads as you were putting together your kid's Halloween costume? The season may be starting earlier than ever, but it sets the tone for the whole holiday. Every year there are trends and traditions with the festive ads and this year is no different. As you wade through the cheesy dancing snowmen ads and the recycled favourites, there are some which emerge victorious and memorable. whether it's Coca Cola wanting to buy the world a Coke by caroling into your head or Best Buy repeatedly inflicting you with the annoying couple trying to get the "right" present, there is no doubt, the music makes a difference.
Are you confused by all the licensing terms out there? We can help you figure out what you need for your project.

If you are not a sound engineer, it can be a little bit confusing trying to figure out which format you need when you go to download your music. Stockmusic.net offers three different formats for all of our music files.

This article will help you figure out which one you need and hopefully help you better understand what the differences are.
There are many directions that composers can go in with their music. If they choose to take the royalty free music route instead of the bar scene, it can be quite lucrative for them, though they may not have their name in lights. Sometimes composers are able to be successful in both venues.
For most projects, stock music is ideal and can meet the producer's needs for any form of media. Most stock music licenses are non-exclusive, so the same music can appear in other projects. Every once in a while, there is a need for something completely singular and unique to create a specific feeling for a project. Whether it's to create a tune for a brand or the lead-in on a new TV show, having exclusivity can be important.
There are various reasons that videos get flagged onYouTube. It can be due to not providing adequate proof that you are allowed to use the video and audio material you are posting, or that you don’t have permission to be using it in the first place. When it is flagged it might have the audio muted or it might post advertisements on the page with your video, depending on what actions the rights holder selects. It can be very frustrating to figure out what is going on and how to get everything to appear the way you want it to. If you have purchased music through a legitimate royalty free music company such as Stockmusic.net and you are still getting your video flagged, you could be the victim of Content ID hijacking.
In the vast number of music licensing sites out there on the internet, it’s hard as a composer to know what you are getting into when you sign a license with one of them. If you decide that the royalty-free music arena is the one you want to venture into, here are some tips to help you along the way.
It pays to do a little research. Before you submit your music, look into the company a little bit. Have they been around for years or did they just set up shop last month? See how much they sell their music for and what the license is that they are selling to their customers. This will give you a good indication of the types of rights you would be signing over to the royalty free music company.
Since the creation of YouTube there have been ongoing issues of copyright infringement due to users uploading content that they do not have the rights for. In an attempt to help fix the situation, YouTube initiated a Content ID match system. If you have posted videos in the past and received a note from YouTube saying that your content was matched in their system, you may already know all about this. There may have suddenly been ads placed onto your page or the music may have been muted. For those of you who use YouTube for your own videos or for videos you create for your clients, this is something you really need to know about.
