Good Music Libraries

If someone knows any good libraries to upload music make a post here.. I think it would be a good chance to have some on a list somehow anyone could find easy.. Also everybody's opinion about them (experience gained, making money opportunities etc) would be nice for all to hear..

  • I think libraries are like anything - the ones open to everyone are beseiged with endless mediocrity and so music supervisors and execs generally dont go there for good paying gigs, and the ones that arent open to everyone are very difficult to get into. I have around 100 cues of instrumental music in several libraries and after a few years (I am told it takes several years to get the right saturation) I am starting to get some placements - nothing big money tho, $50 here, $200 there. I have discontinues my agreement with PUMP out of sheer outrage that they changed their agreement from 50/50 split on fees to 65/35. Part of their trend in how they will treat artists as is the Getty Images way
  • Here's a good link for you: http://musiclibraryreport.com/

    It lists A LOT of the online library companies out there at the moment but also gives composers the chance to leave reviews. Spread this link around because if companies are getting a bad reputation from the composers who use them then it can only help weed out all the rubbish ones :)

    If anyone else has had a bad experience with a library company then this is the place to get it off your chest! http://musiclibraryreport.com/

    I'm hoping this will spread throughout the composing community as a standard 'checklist' before getting involved.

  • Try www.soundclick.com. It has lots of music styles, and many are free to down load. You can download any of my music at www.soundclick.com/musicalpaintingsbypaulquinn
    Let me know what you think of them please.

  • Hi,

    I was writiing about this a while ago when first joined https://composersforum.ning.com/forum/topics/composing-for-productio...

    Please feel free to ask any questions you have about the music library business as I own Music Candy, which has been going for about 10 years now and represented in over 30 countries and expanding and there are always plenty of opportunities for good writers.

  • Hey Guys,

    I'm new around here and I already start being confused.. ;) What kind of libraries are you talking about, how do they work? You just upload some music in any given style and a jury gives it a look?

    Thanks for help!

    David.
  • Guys,

    just to make this clear once: the libraries you are talking about are something where composers upload their music (does it have to be license free? and if yes: what does that mean?) and people who need it (for commercials, shortfilms, whatever) can email you and buy it (so that you are not allowed to use it in another way?), is that right?
    if yes: are there really people in the business with the money who use these libraries?

    thanks for help and patience.. ;)

    David.
