this must have been asked before though i couldn't find any related question titles via search. i'm looking for recommendation for a resource (library / website) where i could find composed music to be used as a background track within a corporate/advertisement video. i'm designing the sound effects and don't have enough time and budget to also compose a background track from scratch... therefore am looking for a way to pull it off as fast as i can.

please advise!

thanks, K

Try this site

I am one of the main contributors to music on the site. It's not as large as some of the other libraries out there, but there still plenty of different styles and songs available.

last time I inquired into library music, I found that some of it costs just as much as bespoke composition...... anyone else with the same experience?

You must know some inexpensive composers! In my field, I'm finding composition-for-hire about ten times as pricey as needle-drop... – Joe Griffin May 9 '12 at 3:54
very interesting. wonder if there's any figures anywhere... – georgi May 10 '12 at 20:33
this depends on what type of sync license is required and how much material is being used. As a composer and a music supervisor I work with budgets that straddle that line all the time. Sometimes it is actually cheaper in the long run to go custom, but not typically for a corporate video. – user7731 Apr 30 '14 at 14:52
