      what videos do you edit? if for domestic use such as weddings, you can buy an Amcos/Apra license for $500 per year and use any available music

      if corporate/industrial or broadcast, all above bets are off and you need to use royalty free music or pay per use music from Amcos

      I prefer royalty free and I have 200 disks, there are many sources in Australia, usually $120 per CD

        thank you so much! i checked out apra's website, but i couldnt make head nor tail of what i needed. that has totally cleared it up for me : ) thank you!

        in terms of buying royalty free cd's.. can you get ones that have current (pop) music on them? or for that would i need to go direct to apra?

            pay per use from apra for any of their library music ranges fro $50 to $200 for every 30 sec

            library music does not include freely available music such as elton john, ACDC, guns & roses etc

            their rate card can be found here
            http://www.amcos.com.au/music-users/...anRateBook.pdf

            there is no such thing as current pop music in royalty free, but there is great stuff

            try my friends at www.weavercommunications.com.au and http://www.royaltyfree.com.au/
            mention my name and I am sure they look after you

                Basically you have to pay to use any music (other than that composed by you) in a production, wether this is via a wedding licence, production music library or by paying Elton John.

                    You should also check out SonicFire Pro from Smart Sound.
                    They have royalty free music of all sorts, and you can dial up the exact length you require to match your time line. It's a very powerful product. They have heaps of song styles, and thousands of titles available. You can preview songs online, and download immediately, without the requirement to wait for CD's to be delivered. As mentioned previously, unless it's your own composition, there's no such thing as free. SonicFire Pro is worth a look at.

                            library music is music that is managed by Amcos to collect a per use fee, this music is not available in music stores (Cd's are available for free from Amcos partners) (it can be used for corporate or broadcast)

                            freely available music is what you find in any music store such as Elton John, ACDC etc. (you buy the CD) and can be used for weddings, parties, home movies providing you pay $500 per year for the license from Amcos/Apra (it can't be used for corporate or broadcast)

                            royalty free music is music you can buy from such makers and you can use it for anything you produce, broadcast or non broadcast. prices are around $100 per CD

                              Digital Juice music is much cheaper then that.
