But if you are listening to the album with the jamplayerweb there is an option at the bottom to Export this playlist: M3U. If you pause the music and click on M3U then the songs should open up in your Media Player and you can click the next and previous buttons in your Media Player and also click on File -> Save As... to save the song you are listening to.

This is terrific thank you. I also found sounddogs.com to be really handy for both sound effects and music. Especially as you can right click on the MP3 and save to file (lo-res). You can edit your video and make sure it's exactly what you want before buying the quality version. (some other sites have their web site name said over and over dubbed on top of the track to protect it which is really annoying after a while).

My name is JD Atkinson, instrumental music composer for Film, Video, Television, Advertising, and multimedia projects.

I have provided a new way for Directors, Producers, Editors, and Music Supervisors to “invest” in their projects by investing in my private collection of music.

Low music budget? Need great music?
Problem solved!

Purchase my Music Library on DVD for a “one-time” price, which in turn, entitles you to online access of all current and future released tracks for no additional fee!

"Buy it once, use it forever!"

As music tracks are added to the library, the sale price for new customers will increase, but not for you! You have already made your investment in me, my music, and your projects! You will continue to benefit from new music tracks released by JD Atkinson!

I've heard it's really good especially for beginners like myself. Michael will talk about how to accomplish a feature film within limited budget, how to shoot from the POV of the various mobile, computer and web-based cameras and how he wrote the script entirely based on read occurrences, and what aesthetic choices to be made for a film that raises awareness. Who wants to go with me?

Hi, i found this site: friendlymusic.com

It seems to be possible to license songs for videos at 1.99$ each. On the website is written they are "YouTube-Partner" but when i´m reading the FAQs i found:

.... lets you upload your videos to YouTube or other websites....

For me this looks very interesting. Maybe someone who already uses this service can give some more information. Here is a link with an article about this site on mashable: mashable.com/2010/06/28/rumblefish-friendly-music/

Every audio track has the legal permissions written out underneath the player on every page, so you'll know exactly how to use it.

NOTE: Some music may not be to your taste, so on that note there is a preview player on the right side that will play the top 5 songs for that day, just toggle the yellow headphone button to shut it off.

I don't understand. When there are so many composers out there dying to write custom music for film (some for free!) why do so many filmmakers flock to royalty free music sites?

Additionally, a composer will promote your film more than any royalty free music site ever would. Food for serious thought.

Nightpost

Nightpost

Completely agree, Kristopher. It's like choosing plastic over wood, or better: line production over handcrafted work.
There is no 'soul' in the whole puzzle when the pieces don't have the same karma..

I can agree that it takes more time to find a person than a product, but we are talking about creativity here people, not consumption ! Food for serious thought indeed.

Kristopher, you must be very privileged to have no idea why composers/filmmakers would like to work for free.. Congratulations on your success, I'm sure the view from you high horse is quite pleasant indeed!

Kristopher Fulton

Kristopher Fulton

shayne_z, your post seems a little angry to me. The truth is I have SO many ideas why composers/filmmakers would like to work for free. I have written several, SEVERAL things for free.

Allow me to clarify my statement above, as I think you have misread me. My question was...

"why do so many filmmakers flock to royalty free music sites?"

...when so many composers (like myself) are dying to write custom music for them, sometimes even for free.

My argument was to avoid paying for royalty-free music from a faceless organization and to promote custom music and composer/filmmaker relationships... even it means working for free.

See? I'm not such a bad guy.

Hello! I see this is an old thread, however it is very relevant to me as I'm a photographer and popped up when I was looking for music to use with my photos!! I'm located in Atlanta and love certain vibes that work with lifestyle portraiture. I'm unable to find what I'm really looking for to use in my industry and thought I could bump this to see if there are ideas from this great thread! I love music like the Haverty's commercial (la la la song), the background sounds of Colbie Calait, Folksy guitar and uke music that's also pop like and up beat. Anywho...any help would be appreciated!! I would think there is someone out there that has something that would work! I feel I'm not THAT picky. ha! :)

Hi everybody,

I will be honest and say I've never made music/sound for film (other than at college) but it is something I am now looking to move in to, and this seems like a great place to get a chance. I wouldn't require any payment, I am just looking to get my teeth in to something interesting. I have been making music for over 10 years, I play a whole host of instruments and have a home studio setup. You can hear my music here: channelswimmer.com

Obviously my music is really all songs at the moment, but I would love this opportunity to create some atmosphere and add a new dimension to a film, whilst starting my showreel.

I fully understand if you do not want to take the risk with me having never composed for film before, but it would be fantastic if you could give me a chance to have a go before accepting/rejecting.

Thanks,
Mathew

If you are a creative artist, do not you think it would be better, music designed specifically for your projects??

Hello Filmmakers, Producers, and Directors!

I totally agree with Jose, the commenter above me!

I'm a film composer and I tailor original music to your tastes and desires and I work with you to see how music will play with the dramatic elements of the film. At our spotting session, we will sit together and discuss places where you would like music, and I would also give my suggestions and input about these places, so our collaboration becomes organic and ends up serving the film, which is the ultimate goal! I love films and I am passionate about music in films, so contact me and I'll show you what I mean...look below for my contact info and website!

Check out my music player and multimedia projects! Let me know what are you music needs and I'll bring them to life for you.

Hey, I'm looking for someone to score a surrealist abstract, semi experimental film project. I don't have it online, due to the process, but if you're interested, e-mail me at delvalle.gerardo9@gmail.com and I can show you the project to see what can be done. This is a recreational film project and I can't pay for the scoring, so it's basically volunteer based.

Hi...

Although this is an old thread, its still relevant, so I decided to include our music in the list..

I manage a producer who is also a mix and mastering engineer... you can take a listen to his instrumentals on the link below - all are available for free download for promo use through soundclick...

All we ask is that you credit IMC Inc. in the credits and send me the link so we can see where it is being used.

Thanks!!!

I remember seeing a link to a website that connects filmmakers to musicians directly in one of these forums but can't seem to recall the name of the site. Is anyone might be able to point me in the right or similar direction?

The site had an option where the filmmaker would post a video and bio of the project, and interested musicians looking to collaborate could send links to their work. Sort of like a classified ad for the project.

I hope that is enough info... it seemed like a really cool website!

Hi, I'm the singer/songwriter/guitarist/keyboard player from London based rock band Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate, but I also write music suitable for films, including experimental (horror film type unpleasant music), classical, minimalist, ambient/chillout, electronica, and blues. I'm interested in either providing existing music for films, or developing collaborations with interesting film-makers.

The link below is to a sampler of short extracts from a variety of tracks in a wide range of styles. If you'd like to hear my rock band material visit reverbnation.com/itsadequate, or to see some of my videos, visit youtube.com/itsadequate

If you'd like to discuss possible collaboration on films or other media, please email hatsofffb at gmail.com
