What is a music bed?

A music bed, simply put, is a song.  It is typically an instrumental song, meaning no vocals.  Its sole purpose is to add ambiance or emotion to a video, a podcast episode, a video game, or wherever someone may have a need for background music.  A good music bed will add just the right amount of flavor without taking the attention away from the main event.

Who uses music beds?

Music beds are a must for anyone creating any type of media content.  Videographers, photographers, video game developers, YouTube creators, Instagram influencers, motivational speakers, and the list goes on and on.

What do the tracks on Human Beat Vol. 1 sound like?

The tracks on Human Beat Vol. 1 were produced in a hip-hop production style.  What does this mean?  It means the focus is on the beat.  Every track has a groove to it.  On top of these head-bobbing beats, are melodies and harmonies that bring out certain emotions in us.  Some are pretty, some are romantic, some are fun and full of energy.  But don't take our word for it, take a listen for yourself to these samples!

Ok, so how does this work?

It couldn't be more simple to purchase and license Human Beat Vol. 1!  Upon its release on March 1, 2018, all you have to do is purchase Human Beat Vol. 1 from our online store for $99.  We then email you a very simple licensing contract.  The contract states that you have full use of all 10 music beds.  That means you can use them in any way you see fit.  No limitations.  You can use them in one YouTube video or you can use them in a national ad campaign.  Go nuts!  The music beds are yours to use as you want.  And they are yours to use forever.  You will never have to pay a renewal fee.  Just sign the contract (you can do it electronically with about 3 mouse clicks) and email it back to us and you are all set!

I can't wait for you to get your hands on these unique music beds!  And I can't wait to see how you use the songs in your next project!  So get ready for Human Beat Vol. 1 - coming March 1, 2018!

What Does "Royalty Free" Music Mean?

What Does _Royalty Free Music_ Mean_.png

"Royalty free music" seems to be the buzz word these days for anyone who has ever tried to make a YouTube video or even other kinds of media creations.  I mean, a YouTube video is a million times better with a little music in the background, right?  But you can't just use any music you want.  If you just use your favorite song off the radio, the YouTube police will be on you like a moth to a flame.  That's why you need music that you can use in your videos and keep the YTP at bay.  That's why you need royalty free music.

Now, "royalty free" does not mean "free of charge."  It means that you don't have to pay royalties to the artist or songwriters every time their song is played like most TV and radio stations have to do.  What you do have to do, is pay up front for a license to use the music.  Once you pay an agreed upon licensing fee, you now have the right to use the song in your video and no one is going to get mad at you or come asking for money.

Imagine going through the following scenario with your next Facebook Live video.  You prepare your material and make sure you know what you are going to talk about.  You have your favorite song cued up the play in the background to give it some ambiance.  Then you do the video and it goes great.  You say everything the way you want to say it.  There are a bunch of people leaving comments and liking your video.  You are killing it!  But when you go to post the video permanently on your profile page, Facebook not only doesn't allow you to post it, but they delete the whole thing because you didn't have the right to use the music!  All your hard work is gone.  All the perfect words you said are gone.  You have to do the whole thing over again and this time without the music.  That has happened to people I know and as you can imagine, it is incredibly frustrating.  The solution is buying a license to use someone's music royalty free.

But where do you get this royalty free music, you ask?

There are a number of websites out there now that license music.    My personal favorite, however, is Soul Motivation Records!  Ok, yes, I own the company. :)  But we are doing some really cool things with music licensing that will help you keep your costs down while making amazing videos!

At Soul Motivation Records, we offer Music Bed Packs that are royalty free and give you 10 unique songs of varying styles to use in your upcoming videos.  You pay a one time fee up front of $99 and then you can use all 10 songs as much as you want with no limitations and no renewals fees.  Pretty cool, huh?

I hope this answers your questions about how royalty free music works.  I know it's kind of confusing, but the main thing to remember is if you want to use music in your videos, be sure to be proactive and find a good royalty free solution.  It will save you a lot of money and headaches down the road.  If you are still confused, feel free to reach out anytime.  I am happy to help you navigate these confusing waters in any way I can.
