Free Music Archive
The Free Music Archive (FMA) is a noncommercial online library of high-quality mp3s that want to be shared. Managed with a curatorial approach by nonprofit radio station WFMU, the project is a collaboration between a worldwide network of fellow curators including broadcasters, arts organizations, record labels, venues, festivals, artist coalitions, and other positive forces in music.
The FMA is the first curated platform for artists who wish to participate in the open sharing of their art under the Creative Commons licensing framework. Creative Commons offers a set of tools for creators to keep their copyright while allowing for certain uses of their work, and in many cases, this includes the types of creative noncommercial video projects that flourish here on Vimeo.
SmartSound is a team of musical masterminds behind the only royalty free music library that can be personalized to fit your videos perfectly. Their vast curated music library and soundtrack software, Sonicfire Pro, has been giving video editors the most creative music soundtracks for years.
The latest invention from SmartSound has put the Vimeo Music Store in overdrive! It's a web-based music API that can instantly deliver over 20,000,000 (that's 20 million!) different musical compositions with a royalty-free, commercial-use license. Basically that means any song from SmartSound can fit your videos perfectly. SmartSound music tracks allow you to set the length to exactly what you need and you get to choose from a variety of musical arrangements that have a perfect musical beginning, middle and ending at any length you chose. Their Multi-Layer tracks give you access to control the instrument mix too!
If you love music... SmartSound is the music that loves you back! <3
