"I've listed those publishers who sent me actual music demos instead of marketing hype.
There is absolutely no correlation between price and sound. Some discs are absolute rip-offs;
others are genuine bargains...
PBTM Music [is] definitely a buy-out best buy. A wide range of musically creative pop and
specialty sounds, long enough for scoring, with good production."

"The company with the BEST music that I found is QCCS Productions...This company has been
written up in magazine after magazine as having the best buyout music there is that covers
After getting their library of music you will never again have to buy another piece of music
whether you are producing an infomercial or a movie... Not only is the music fabulous, but there
are no hassles regarding legal issues, paperwork, or royalty fees."

"Okay, you just finished that 30 or 60-second spot for a TV commercial; or the documentary that
you worked on for six months for PBS; or you just finished a wedding and you want to add
music. Where are you going to get the music? Music is copyrighted just like most books.
Copyright infringement is big business for lawyers. You will have to buy rights to use music
for your video and that's expensive (upwards of $500 or more per song). Of course you can have
someone make a 30 to 60-second music spot for you for $250 to $750. Ouch!
Before you go broke playing this game, you should know that there is help. Royalty Free Music.
This is music for which you pay a one-time fee and then you can use the music as many times as
you need. Most Royalty-Free music is expensive though (around $500 for one tape) or it's worse
than elevator music and very poorly done. Well, after a four-year hunt, I have found a company
that is almost too good to be true. A company that deals in such volume that they can afford to
give you Pro-Background Theme Music at an affordable price. The name of the company is

weddings to graduations. All songs are different; all songs are great."

I have used this 'buyout' music from ZM Squared ($100/album), The Production Garden
($170/album), and lately from QCCS Productions ($70/album). If you do weddings, only ZM
Squared and QCCS seem to have wedding music, with QCCS having a much better selection.
I've used about six albums from ZM Squared and three albums from QCCS, my personal

Excerpt from "Music Libraries" by Ken Benedict
"Buyout music...is a little simpler. You just purchase an entire album, tape or CD and you
possess the rights to use any tune on the recording.
One of the oldest and most established providers of buyout music to the camcorder enthusiast
and prosumer is Oregon-based QCCS Productions. QCCS has been among the leaders in
wedding, industrial and special-event background music.
Volumes 4 and 8 both contain high-energy, cleanly mastered tunes, perfect for blazing sports
footage as well as other dynamic types of productions. These fast-paced, multiple-rhythm tracks
are great sound beds to use. Translated, that means these are perfect for a diverse spectrum of
commercial, educational and industrial applications."

For any professional in the video or multimedia industry, QCCS' collection definitely is a must.
This buy-out library offers a huge variety of styles at a price you just can't beat. The quality of the
productions is impeccable. QCCS' writers, musicians and sound engineers have done a great job.
The library comes with a full documentation that makes sure that you won't have any trouble
with copyrights when using this collection in a commercial production.
If I had to work with just one library, QCCS' collection would definitely be my choice.
