Buy-Out License Music Collections

Buy-Out License Music Collections

A buy-out music collection typically offers the most affordable music licensing route you can take. When you buy a buy-out license music collection, you buy the rights to use the music whenever and however you want forever (certain restrictions may apply). Usually, the only additional requirement is that, if your project is broadcast, you must submit a cue sheet to the broadcast network. (For more information on cue sheets, see the sidebar “Cue Sheets Explained” later in this chapter.)

Unfortunately, most buy-out collections have tracks that most people consider rather cheesy. Synthesized sounds are not bad in themselves, but what disgruntles many video and film producers are inappropriate synth instrumentations, such as violins and trumpets that sound electronic.
