The Music Bed Launches New App for Licensed Music Discovery

By Christopher Lin on April 1st 2013


A lot of the music we use for SLR Lounge Education is purchased via Music Bed, and online marketplace for licensed music for use in media projects. The service is particularly popular for videographers and photographers who are looking for high-quality soundtracks at a reasonable price for their videos and slideshows without infringing on copyrights.

The Problem and the Solution

One of the biggest obstacles to going legit is the difficulty of sifting and sorting through music to find the right song for your project. Music Bed‘s solution is the new app, which they just introduced today. See the commercial below:

Check out these screenshots for an idea of how the app works. It essentially acts similar to the other Music apps like Spotify and Rdio in that it allows you to browse music, listed to popular playlists, create wishlists, and purchase songs within the app.

According to the press release: “Stay inspired anywhere with access to The Music Bed catalog right at your fingertips! As new music is released, you’ll be able to effortlessly keep up to date with their most recent library additions right on the app. Instantly update your wishlists with the newest hand-picked tracks.”




To celebrate the release of your new favorite app, they’ve got 30 Days of Giveaways where you could win $1,500 in song licenses + an iPad Retina from TMB, PLUS tons of insane prizes from the likes of Kessler, Rode, Zacuto, LensProToGo and more.

    Hey guys – 30 second previews are actually only for users that have never made a purchase on the site. All of the filmmakers/photographers that have used The Music Bed before (or who make a purchase in the future) will receive full length previews.

    Looks like you guys need to make a purchase ;)
