AudioMicro, a popular source for royalty free music, has announced that they will be adding 170 original compositions by the composer for Family Guy, Ron Jones.
With the recent news that YouTube has muted the audio on certain videos due to copyright problems with the rights holders, stock music is becoming a growing option for people who create videos, podcasts, presentations and more. Now it seems that composers are liking this option as well, as evidenced by someone like Ron Jones, the Emmy-nominated composer of the television series Family Guy, placing 170 of his original compositions on a site such as AudioMicro.
For those unfamiliar with the AudioMicro style of company, you pay as little as a $1 a minute for audio clips that can be anything from audio cues and bumpers up to full compositions lasting several minutes. This gives content creators the freedom to create whatever they want with appropriate background music, and they don’t have to worry about someone coming in and saying they violated their copyright. Mr. Jones also feels that this is a good thing for the composers as he said, “With this service the composer can bypass the middleman and go directly to the end-user. That is a huge leap forward for composers. You can decide what you want to create and get it out there today. That is freedom. This is a revolution.”
With the addition of these 170 new tracks, the AudioMicro library now surpasses 50,000 available pieces of music and sound effects covering a wide-range of musical styles.
