What is a Music Bank (2022)

In the world of filmmaking, cinema and advertising, music is always necessary. Because, every piece is made up of 50% image and 50% sound.

So, without any doubt, music plays a very important role in each piece, just like the image.

However, using music for videos is restricted through copyright laws. It means that, to use someone else’s song, you need the author’s consent. Or, as is usually done, you can pay for the rights of use through synchronization licenses.

Surely, you will ask yourself:

What are sync licenses?

Basically, is the right or consent that the author of a song gives you to use his music. However, this use is restricted to, as its name indicates, synchronizing a video with that song.

Thus, once you obtain the license it’s possible to have legal support to show and distribute the audiovisual content.

In this way, it is possible to avoid legal problems with the owner of the song. Besides, you don’t run the risk that your video be shut down in streaming platforms and Social Network.

These synchronization licenses vary in their legal scope, duration and price.

In other words, the more expensive the license, the bigger its scope and the longer it lasts. Generally, music libraries offer time-limited licenses with a fairly low legal scope. Especially for worldwide advertising, streaming and television campaigns.

An example of this, is comparing between a local student project and a worldwide marketing campaign. Clearly, the legal efforts and resources committed from one example to another vary widely.

This is where music banks come into play.

Music libraries or music banks are basically a Marketplace. Here, artists from all over the world upload their songs to be marketed. Thus, through the sale of licenses for each song, a percentage is shared between both parties. Thus, artists contribute with their piece and the music bank with the promotion, distribution and legal support.

In our case, Audiolander offers perpetual Premium licences worldwide without restrictions. Besides, all our synchronization contracts come without fine print. So you can forget about unnecessary paperwork and tricky contracts.

Also, we offer perpetual Professional and Basic licenses. So you don’t have to pay for extra charges (more details in the hyperlink of each license).

Finally, it’ s important to consider the advantages of using music libraries.

Clearly, time is one of the great advantages of using music banks. Because, in the case of creating the music for your video, it’s necessary to invest more time than when buying a license.

On the other hand, another advantage is the price. Probably, the price range of a composer starts from USD 1,000.

In our case, the value of our licenses ranges from USD 39 to USD 485.

In addition, we have a meticulous selection process. Where we not only evaluate the musical quality of the work, but also the audio, mastering and volume standards of the industry.

So every time you visit Audiolander, you’ll find the highest quality music on the market at a fair price.
