Making music is always fun… so wouldn’t it be great to make money from making music? If you’re anything like me, it’s probably your ultimate dream. In fact, I’ll bet it’s probably the dream of just about every musician out there trying to “make it.”
There are a lot of ways to make money from music, but one of the best avenues for musical income is by licensing your songs to film, TV and commercials. In order to build up a portfolio of tons of license-ready music, you need to be inspired to create lots of cool tracks in different styles and moods.
One of the best ways to do this is by starting with a drum beat.
A drum beat has a way of kicking off the creative process. Suddenly you’re not starting from scratch and you have a basis to build your music on. And the great thing about our drum beats is that you won’t fall into the rut that you might encounter using drum loops. Loops can be cool to start, but when you hear the same beat over and over again, it doesn’t help your song evolve and grow into a fully realized composition. Our drum tracks have sections, dynamics and fills that keep it fresh and keep your creative juices flowing.
Case in point: DrumTracks.com user Ariel A. Blumenthal. He owns a music production house called Sentient Music for Media, where he posts his amazing compositions that have been licensed to all sorts of media outlets. On his profile page you can listen to some really cool songs he wrote using our drum tracks as inspiration. Ariel is now working on an amazing new project which includes dozens of tracks with DrumTracks.com drummers.
Another great example is Lior Ron, who I profiled in an earlier post. He uses our drum tracks as the basis of his awesome film scores, TV commercials, video game music, and more.
Our drummers are no strangers to the world of music licensing. They’ve recorded drums for TV shows like American Idol and tons of other FOX promos. If anyone can give you the basis for license-ready music, it’s them!
