If you need music for just about any type of project and want to be sure you are using it legally, then music licensing (and sync licensing) is your absolute music solution.
Projects could include but are not limited to:
- Movie trailers
- Video games
- Video game trailers
- TV commercials
- Corporate videos
- Television shows
- Public videos
- Website music
- Wedding video
Sure, you could make your own music if you are musically inclined and have the gear and the production know how, or you could even hire a professional composer to score music specifically for your project, but the easiest way is to license the use of music that has already been created. And there is plenty of it out there.
Music licensing websites make the process easy and seamless. They take care of all the legal side of things (most of which has already been worked out before the music tracks are uploaded to their sites by the artists), and it’s often as simple as finding a track that suits your purposes and buying the appropriate sync license or music license to use it in your project.
It doesn’t matter whether you need a short piece of music or something that’s more full length, artists that create production music designed for the licensing marketplace create tracks of all varying lengths. Some are less than a minute long while others may run for six or seven minutes.
All genres are covered as well, so if you need a dramatic and scary instrumental for a thriller scene in a movie, or something light and upbeat for a promotional video, you can find it all with music licensing.
Many tracks will have vocals while large numbers of tracks are created as instrumentals. Even the vocal tracks will usually come with an instrumental version in case the purchaser doesn’t want lyrics. And on top of that, many tracks are broken down into stems or select groups of instruments. So you really have a lot of versatility when it comes to licensing music and being able to use it effectively in your project in a way that really suits the scene and the mood.
License prices can vary from site to site, artist to artist, and depending on exactly what you want to use the music for.
