Epidemic Sound Licenses Music By The Second

STOCKHOLM - December 19, 2013 - Epidemic Sound today began accepting applications for early access to the new Epidemic Sound TrackShop, which allows video content creators for the first time to license tracks from the company's production music library for just €1 ($1.35) per second.

In contrast, all other professional production music libraries - including so-called royalty-free catalogues - require video content creators to license an entire track of background music, regardless how much of each track is actually used. In addition, the prices for each track are generally in the hundreds of dollars, and vary and increase depending on the purpose of the content and where it will be broadcast. And, those prices do not include performance rights fees later charged by collecting societies around the world.

"Epidemic Sound has come up with an incredibly smart pricing model," said Los Angeles-based producer, director, and editor Nicholas Camp, who participated in early tests of TrackShop. "If I'm making a 5 minute film that will run on YouTube or Vimeo or Dailymotion, and watched by people worldwide, I've typically had to buy multiple tracks. But with Epidemic Sound, I can download a bunch of tracks, try the ones I think might work best for each scene, and then use TrackShop to buy only the few seconds I actually use. It's so much easier and cheaper."

How TrackShop Works
The Epidemic Sound library contains more than 25,000 unique tracks that are tagged and formatted for the company's advanced search tools used to explore, edit and download the music. Each track is split into STEMS - individual tracks where the instruments can be heard and edited separately - thereby creating over 100,000 sound files available for use.

Tracks can be added to the TrackShop shopping cart from anywhere in the Epidemic Sound Player with a single click on the (cart+) symbol.

Then it's as easy as one, two, three:
1. Name the project, add a brief description and specify the number of seconds that will be used.
2. Pay with a credit card.
3. Done. A license is immediately generated and available for download alongside the licensed tracks.

Epidemic Sound is the first library that gives visual content creators use of professional-quality soundtracks in any country, on any platform, forever, for only a small fee. No additional charges are ever required of anyone, which is unique for a professional quality music library.

The tracks in the library have been created by more than 200 composers who are screened and mentored by a select production team lead by company co-founder Peer Åström, an award-winning producer with the world record for the most ever entries on the U.S. Billboard/iTunes chart, and productions for Madonna, Kelly Clarkson and Enrique Iglesias. In addition to Epidemic Sound, Åström produces all of the music for the FOX hit show Glee.

"Epidemic Sound is the new way - the modern way - to choose and use soundtrack music," said Epidemic Sound CEO and Co-founder Oscar Höglund. "From the start our mission has been two fold: unchain production music for video content creators and give composers a better way to make a living. TrackShop is a huge step forward on the path towards that goal."
