What’s the difference between your catalog and the others?
As we are a record label, our priority is to create music for commercial/public releases which are digitally and physically distributed to a general market. However, we have also been involved in music production and licensing business for media projects such as advertising campaigns, films, and video games. For over two decades, through our original music, we have been committed to helping our clients to tell their stories and messages to their customers. From the B2B point-of-view, we have spent a great deal of time building a “hybrid catalog” which is optimized for professional music licensing needs. For example, we always stock an abundance of alternative mixes, edits, and stems of the original releases.
Unlike production music and stock music libraries, we never aim at hoarding tons of music tracks from outside composers. We would rather focus on providing more creatively challenging and quality story-telling music you would never hear in ordinary music libraries out there.
We have not only a creative edge but also business flexibility, by getting the best of both traditional record labels and music libraries.
For what kind of media projects can we use music from your catalog?
While we focus on so-called “Sync Licensing,” we handle a wide range of licenses for including, but not limited to these uses. We strongly recommend you take a look at Licensing Guide page as well to understand the basics of music licensing.
– Synchronization Uses –
TV Programming (Shows, Documentaries, Dramas, News, etc.)
TV Advertising Campaigns (Commercials)
Film Trailers & TV Promos
Corporate Productions (Theater, Competition Video/Slide, etc)
Video Games and Software
Internet Websites, Webisodes, Flash
Products and Toys
Video Packages (Music for Video, DVD or CD-ROM)
– Non-synchronization Uses –
Radio Programming and Advertising Campaigns (Commercials)
Music Compilation (CD, PC Audio)
Public Space (Live Events, Restaurants, Trade Shows, Retail Spaces)
Ringtones (Master/Pre-Recorded Ringtones)
Are these tracks 100% pre-cleared for licenses?
Yes. All the tracks in our catalog have been registered to PRO/MRO regarding performing and mechanical rights. We Model Electronic own their master rights as well. We provide a one-stop resource so that we could serve your musical needs quickly and bring you a hassle-free license deal.
If your request involves a performance license such as a broadcasting use, you will need to submit a report/cue sheet and pay (or have someone pay) appropriate performing royalties. But don’t worry, we understand nuts and bolts of music licensing and could address the specific needs of your project.
Do you license your music for my small project with a limited budget?
If you are considering using our music for a project with a small budget, we recommend you visit our new micro-licensing store. In addition to traditional (custom) licenses for big-budget projects, we provide affordable license options for non-broadcast and limited usage such as monetized videos on Youtube, weddings & events, crowdfunding campaigns, non-profit & charities, and small business promotions (non-paid advertising).
Hopefully, you will find a micro-license type that suits your needs.
Do you do additional/custom edits for these pre-existing tracks?
Yes. We can meet your needs by providing additional production and custom edits of our pre-existing tracks, but it would charge you extra fees in addition to the basic license fees. As we already have a lot of alternative mixes and edits/stems of our music, we will try to find out how we could do with them lest it should exceed the capacity of your budget.
Do you possibly hire outside composers or accept their submissions for your catalog?
As written on the Contact page, we don’t have a plan to hire outside composers at the moment.
