The License is for Just This Purpose, Right?

    I’m working this afternoon to wrap my head around creating some sound beds.  It just seems so easy that one or two clicks can lead me to ccMixter, a huge resource of available tracks.  (Don’t forget Freesound for sound effects.) 
    Of course, the Podshow Music Network comes to mind, too, when I’m thinking about sound resources that we would have permission to use.   I wonder if Podshow would allow me to do some cutting in order to create a sound bed collection?
    Creative Commons, and the community of artists that are using it, have made my world a much better place.  There’s tons here.  I’m in audio heaven.

  1. http://www.royaltyfreemusic.com/free-music-clips.html

    Loops, bumpers, etc free for non-profit use, with an attribution requirement (similar to the CC 2 license)

    Also, note that Creative Commons has a new license (3.0, I think)

    I don’t know that you can mash and cut PMN songs, but the good news is you can contact almost all the artists there to ask. I use a couple of bumpers in Digital Father from the PMN (Artist link at http://tinyurl.com/yvamxo)

  3. Oof- sorry for the duplicate comment above. New info:

    Just listened to a podcast by C.C. Chapman, the guru behind Podsafe Music Network. He describes the license, and specifically says mashups, use for beds, theme songs, intros and outros are all permitted.

    Thought you might like to know.
