Global digital media company Getty Images today expanded its music licensing platform to provide content creators with seamless access to more than 45,000 high-quality, fully pre-licensed tracks through its enhanced SoundExpress collection.
Customers licensing these tracks need not pay additional fees for synchronization, performance or mechanical royalties, and are free to use the music across any project at no further cost or obligation. Part of Getty Images’ diverse music offering of over 340,000 assets, the revamped royalty-free collection takes the complexity and cost out of music licensing without sacrificing quality.
“With the rapid expansion of digital video content in a multi-screen world, music licensing has become more complex and costly for businesses, advertisers and creatives,” said Melinda Lee, General Manager, Getty Images Music. “With this newly enhanced collection, Getty Images dramatically simplifies and reduces the cost of music licensing to accommodate the new digital world — no extra steps and no extra fees.”
The robust collection includes high-end, high-quality production tracks from a global roster of musicians, providing instrumental and vocal-driven songs across all genres. Customers can search the collection at www.gettyimages.com/music and license these tracks instantly, making it quick and easy for content creators to source music anytime for a simple flat fee, without need of additional approvals or clearances.
“We are constantly innovating and anticipating the needs of our creative customers, who rely on Getty Images for the highest quality content whether it’s imagery, music or video,” said Andy Saunders, Senior Vice President of Creative at Getty Images. “Our new royalty free music collection lets our customers access the best tracks without anything holding them back from a licensing perspective.”
