About Production Music Library
What is Production Music
Production Music is intended for use in the production of film, TV and radio programming and advertising, cinema advertising, corporate videos, computer games, podcasts, website development, apps, and online videos (e.g. YouTube).
Previously, the use of production music was mostly limited to film, TV, and radio which had high budgets and could afford dedicated composers. However, the rise of the new media, such as computers, the internet, and smartphones, increased the number of potential applications exponentially. This has led to a demand for high quality, 'ready-to-use' music that is accessible, affordable and suitable for all levels of media.
Difference Between Commercial Music and Production Music
Commercial music is the type of music that is usually created and marketed alongside their artists. You will usually hear them as songs playing on the radio. Using commercial music in any audio-visual production is a long, complicated, and expensive process. It usually involves several parties, including the music publishers, composers, record companies and an enormous amount of paperwork.
Production music was created for the easy licensing of music to be used for synchronization in audio-visual productions. The process is comparatively more straightforward, easier and, not to mention, much cheaper. It bridges the gap between the buyer and the creator of the music.
At Ligar Music Library, you are purchasing the license to use the music directly from the composer. In this way, we cut out the middleman cost and you can rest assured that there are no additional license and copyright fees attached.
