The question has come up a number of times on what is the “best music library”. While we would all like a quick answer to tap into the riches of the music library world, the fact is there is no easy answer. There are hundreds of music libraries that serve different markets, from royalty free sites, mid level boutique, to high end mega libraries.
Below are some user comments on their experiences with various libraries. By no means definitive and your mileage will definitely vary!
Great BMI payday today 3-23-2012, best one ever for me. Hope everyone is having similar success with their PRO payments!
A couple of points. Out of the hundreds of placements on my statement very, very few were from exclusive deals. All the rest were non-exclusive re-titles. If there is a death knell for non-exclusives and PRO payments I’m not seeing it. Also income for royalty free sites has been, and continues to be, a very small percentage of my PRO income.
