Howdy everyone,

As many of you know, finding music for your videos can be somewhat... well, painful. Licensing music on your own can be confusing and finding good free music can take forever. Many of us here at Vimeo are video creators or filmmakers as well and we experience these frustrations on a regular basis. So, we decided to do something about it.

Introducing Vimeo Music Store!

Vimeo Music Store is your one-stop-shop for finding, discovering and licensing high quality music for your videos. We've built a simple and intuitive interface for you to easily search for music using a variety of different music criteria, and then purchase and/or download the tracks you want. Search mood, genre, tempo, themes, instrumentations and then use the advanced search to whittle down the results even further.

As of now, Music Store offers over 45,000 curated tracks with a three different license options for you to choose from. Here's the skinny:

Creative Commons-licensed music is curated and provided by Free Music Archive, one of the most-respected curators of Creative Commons-licensed music. There are many different Creative Commons licenses available, so make sure to learn more about Creative Commons and how to use them in our FAQ.

Paid music tracks are provided by Audiosocket, a music and media company that curates its content to deliver up-and-coming talent to the marketplace. Audiosocket's catalog includes over 33,000 songs from more than 1900 emerging bands, composers and record labels from around the world. Audiosocket's catalog offers both personal, non-commercial licenses for $1.99 per track and commercial licenses for $98 per track.

As a a token of our appreciation, we're offering all Plus and PRO members one FREE, personal license track (a $1.99 value). This offer is only available for one week starting today, so make sure to head over to Music Store and cash in!

We're very excited about this first phase of Vimeo Music Store and we hope you like it. Look for more features, more partners and more options for bands and musicians in the future!


p.s. If you have any feedback or have any issues, please post in our forums.

great news indeed!

We are a netlabel operating since 2001. All our catalogue is available under creative commons non commercial share alike licenses.

Would love to see tracks from our catalogue being used for videos more often!

Some of our releases are up at FMA, so this will help vimeo users finding them :)

This just simplified my future projects by tenfold. Now I can spend more time being creative vs. dealing with production companies and labels.

I used a song from the Music Store in one of my recent videos, and it really added to the overall effect. One suggestion would be to have a link to the composer of the song in your credits on your video. video - 32117280. Awesome addition Vimeo!

Good to know Vimeo isn't focused on 50% of creativity. They also give a $#\+ about sound! Woohoo!
