The Premium Collection Provides Access to 13,000 Music Tracks Traditionally Available Only to High End Buyers
Los Angeles, Oct. 13, 2009. AudioMicro.com, a crowd-sourced marketplace for royalty-free music and sound effects licensing, announces that its users can now download more than 13,000 new production music tracks from its online library. Consumers and professionals alike now have direct and immediate access to professional quality production music supplied by one of the largest production music libraries in Hollywood. The new offering is dubbed “The Premium Collection” and represents the first time that record label owned material has been made available for synch licensing to small independent video producers in a micro stock format.
“The Premium Collection is a big step forward for us,” said AudioMicro Founder Ryan Born. “In addition to our superb collection of user-generated content, we can now deliver, on-demand, thousands of production music tracks created by one of the world’s most respected record labels. Our users will be excited by the unprecedented quality, size and scope of this collection.”
Under the terms of a new licensing agreement, AudioMicro members have access to The Premium Collection library of professional-grade production music tracks royalty free and under the same pricing and terms as AudioMicro’s crowd-sourced stock music files. Prices for individual music tracks are as little as $3 per minute, while subscription packages start at just $9 per month. Users are permitted to use the content for most digital media, including websites, short online films, iPhone apps, local television, flash animations, Facebook games, PowerPoint presentations, and projects with budgets under fifty-thousand dollars.
Historically, The Premium Collection has been available only to major television networks and feature film producers in a high end, rights managed licensing format. “AudioMicro provides a platform where users can download as little as a single track and do so at an affordable price,” said Born. “We are very pleased by this opportunity to expand our digital downloading offering and to make The Premium Collection available to a much broader spectrum of users.”
In addition to The Premium Collection, AudioMicro recently redesigned its website to incorporate several ease-of-use capabilities, including advanced search features, customizable favorite lists, embeddable tracks, and one click Twitter sharing. Last month, AudioMicro announced the availability of over 55,000 royalty free sound effects from The Hollywood Edge collection, a wholly owned subsidiary of Discovery Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: DISCA).
AudioMicro offers advertisers, music supervisors, creative directors, webmasters, filmmakers, and “YouTubers” an affordable, high-quality solution for appropriately securing sync music for use in creative audio-visual projects. With content purchased from AudioMicro, a movie or webisode can be scored at a fraction of the cost of a traditional music library. AudioMicro offers the largest user-generated micro stock music library, with over 150,000 tracks from publishers, composers, record labels, and sound designers worldwide.
