What is everyone using?  ???
I got tagged on YouTube for the music I used on my video yesterday.
Anyone have any links to soundtrack types of music?

Thanks

On youtube you can do something called "AudioSwap" or something like that which allows you to add a song from their huge library to your movie. The catch I believe is that they will show advertising for the song but I never have seen it.

The songs are quite good and you can easily preview the songs and check their length. The library is quite good as it includes many well known and new songs from well known artists.

As a last resort. :).There are a few artists that will produce original music for you at a reasonable cost. You own the intellectual property for as little as 200.00 for a 3 minute clip. That includes the post-processing to get it layered over your images based on your audio/video story board. I can point you to one if original music is required.

We use www.stockmusicsite.com it has a lot of high quality music ranging from 100 to 300 USD for one track. We used it for all the Lumion movies.

It has pretty decent vocals too:

Ouch! Just realised the vocal track is $10.000. That's pretty expensive LOL.

Here's a better example (36 USD):

Or, if you are into making your own (but maybe slightly canned) there's always the SmartSound libraries to mix and combine tracks.

Found this music resource site, Media Music Now with royalty free, voice, custom and sound effects(coming).  Purchase using credits, not heaps, seems reasonble pricing and some good tracks, although haven't yet used, found some nice songs and useful for archi viz.

I'm not a musician, but do the songs in the program Mixcraft5 or Garage Band (Mac). It's good fun and cheap.
You can mount a song in 30 minutes.
