This is my primary source of music. Sonicfire Pro is a software product of SmartSound (www.smartsound.com (external link)), the music albums and tracks are mostly recorded by orchestras and groups, they generally have a very rich sound and feel.

Agree with this, it's a great resource I use at work. It really is an awesome program that lets you greatly customize the feel of the music. The tracks may seem expensive at first but you can generate MANY variations from the same track. Just be aware this does not apply to the older tracks in their library.

There's also a company called Footage Firm that sells stock footage and music and they are always have giveaways where you pay only S&H for the discs. It's not as good as SmartSound but you can't argue with the price! They also time their tracks for broadcast, so they will typically have 30, 45, 60 second versions apart from the full track.

There is also an affliated site called Videoblocks.com that is subscription based and they offer a 7-day trial to check it out.

I have some of their music, too. The only "fly in the ointment" is that their liscence terms specify a synchronization limit of 2000 physical copies per production. Not much of a limit if you self distribute and don't exceed that number of copies, but it could kind of kill a major distributor being seriously interested in a feature if you hit it lucky.

Might want to try this site:
http://www.freestockmu​sic.com/ (external link)

Although please read and understand the license agreement here: http://www.freestockmu​sic.com/license-agreement/ (external link)

However I think for independent productions this is very good. Free and Royalty-Free

I just find it so hard to believe that some these 20 sec videos you see on youtube that use a copyrighted song actually pay for the rights to use it.

If you're doing weddings or events like that, check out www.themusicbed.com (external link)

Looks like single songs are $49. And the selection is actually pretty good.
