RoyaltyFreeKings.com continues to expand its Royalty-Free Music Collection
Over the past couple of months, RoyaltyFreeKings.com has released several new dramatic albums featuring royalty-free piano tracks: 'Drama - Light 4 & 5', aimed at independent dramatic films and perfect as music for a documentary; and 'Weird Wacky and Fun 2', an eclectic compilation of background instrumental quirky music.
A large, genre-wide expansion is taking place at the music licensing website. in July, RoyaltyFreeKings.com released their first royalty-free dubstep music album 'Dubstep'. Featuring a range of cutting-edge and authentic instrumental dubstep tracks, the album is aimed at video producers looking to add a modern boost of energy to their projects.
The large catalog expansion began with the introduction of new royalty-free action music albums at the end of spring. In June, the royalty-free western music album 'Wild Wild West' was released, featuring a variety of tracks, all appropriate for western-themed projects. The range of tracks runs from ambient, mysterious guitar layers, to huge sweeping orchestral music, reminiscent of classic cowboy western films.
The music that royalty-free music website RoyaltyFreeKings.com offers for gratis use, which has become popular with educators, students, independent game developers and low-budget filmmakers, is getting a sizable update as well.
Major expansion of the catalog is in popular areas such as epic and hi-tech music, targeting corporate video producers. The expansion will bring the number of carefully hand picked and vetted tracks to approximately 2,000. Albums, collections of royalty-free music sold at a considerable discount (as much as 70-percent off the price of individual tracks), should top out at over 100. The update started in May, and will continue throughout the summer and into the fall.
For summer-themed projects, RoyaltyFreeKings.com already has a variety of collections aimed at companies in need of upbeat, fun and beach-themed music, and that selection will grow over the next several months.
'Summer Fun', 'Laidback Acoustic' 'Sports', 'Surf' and 'Road Trip' are just a handful of a range of royalty-free albums put together with such projects in mind. These summer-themed albums consist of upbeat pop rock, surf rock, reggae, funk, acoustic and uplifting orchestral tracks. All these fun and energetic tracks are available individually at RoyaltyFreeKings.com as well.
This year brought about a recent new milestone for RoyaltyFreeKings.com: 1,000,000 plays through their demo player (powered by SoundCloud.com). In their first year of operation, RoyaltyFreeKings.com has become known throughout the world as a source of quality music. Traffic to the website and sales of the library's downloadable background music have steadily increased each month as producers from every corner of the world have learned of the music licensing website, and the strict quality control that runs through the entire catalog.
In addition to this significant milestone, RoyaltyFreeKings.com recently clocked up over 70,000 downloads of their free-to-use tracks, which are available to anyone with a budget under US$250,000.
Wedding video producers have been the focus of RoyaltyFreeKings.com's attention of late.
With over two million weddings each year in just the U.S.A. alone, the 40-billion-dollar wedding industry has grown to include thousands of independent videographers and editors whose primary work is producing wedding videos and photo montages.
Music licensing website RoyaltyFreeKings.com has amassed a collection of music aimed squarely at these wedding video producers, with dozens of heartfelt instrumental tracks designed for montages, and live renditions of wedding classics, such as: the Wedding March and Pachebel's Canon for traditional use within wedding ceremonies.
With wedding season in full swing, RoyaltyFreeKings.com offers several handpicked albums of royalty-free wedding music, including: Weddings & Romance volumes 1 and 2, three diverse 'Drama - Light' albums and two 'Laidback Acoustic' guitar albums. As with all the music found on the site, every track has been handpicked for quality and maximum emotional impact.
In addition to the music for wedding videos offered at RoyaltyFreeKings.com, over 1,000 tracks covering a wide range of genres are available for immediate download.
In recent months, RoyaltyFreeKings.com has been busy with major under-the-hood updates in preparation for the aforementioned steady stream of new royalty-free albums and tracks. The considerable addition to the catalog includes an eclectic selection of new albums, including western film music, solo piano and epic orchestral trailer music, all aimed primarily at independent producers. New releases include 'Epic Worlds 3'; modern royalty-free epic music designed for use in trailers and promos.
Alongside the new tracks and albums, a wide selection of free-to-use music is also available to anyone working with a low to medium budget (US$250,000 or less per project). The music is immediately downloadable and ready to use. This complimentary background music section has proved to be very popular with students, educators and charities around the world. The range of styles and genres in the music given away by RoyaltyFreeKings.com include: epic dramatic orchestral, ambient piano, jazz, comedy, rock and suspense tension.
The mission of RoyaltyFreeKings.com since launching in 2012 has been to make searching for background music for video production incredibly easy and streamlined. The crowd-sourcing business model (where anyone can upload music), like that used by many competing royalty-free websites, has the benefit of a rapid expansion of content. The downside is that with so many tracks being uploaded, the catalog easily gets bloated with mediocre music that does little to enhance a project, whether it's a commercial, wedding video, film or webisode. Producers looking through these crowd-sourcing music licensing websites have to spend significant time sifting through vast collections to find something they'd actually want to use, or worse - settle for something inferior just because they don't have the time to continue searching.
By handpicking each track, RoyaltyFreeKings.com only allows in music that meets a strict standard of musicality and production value. The growing catalog of handpicked tracks at RoyaltyFreeKings.com is produced by an international group of over fifty award-winning composers, including a pop rock producer in Finland, a Nashville-based folk and country expert, a heavy metal specialist in Italy, a renowned acoustic guitar artist in Hawaii and several well-known trailer music composers. The high quality of tracks from these composers results in a streamlined shopping experience where producers can find, purchase and download the music they need within just a few minutes.
A guiding principle for RoyaltyFreeKings.com is fair treatment of their content suppliers. The composers who provide the carefully vetted music are given an equal share of the sales, before any discounts a customer might receive. This is in sharp contrast to many of its competitors, some of whom are offering far less - 40 percent, 35 percent, or in some cases just 30 percent of the sales to composers.
