With all business, there is a constantly evolving climate. Some years a business will break out from the pack while others begin a rapid decline. The stock music game is no different. Some stock music libraries gain traction as leaders while others wither away and disappear.
2015 has been a wild year for music libraries but the best libraries still rise to the top. The best libraries share common qualities. They have high quality music, affordable pricing, easy site navigation/search functionality, and quality customer service/simply licensing terms. It's important to note that to acquire quality music the libraries have to appeal to the sellers needs as well. It's a cyclical system.
So without further ado, here are the best music libraries for 2016.
Pond5 is a leader in the stock media world. It is a one stop shop for creators to find and easily purchase music, sfx, footage, images, after effects and 3d.
AudioJungle is the music library of the Envato Network. This media network contains stock website themes, code scripts, video, images, graphics, and 3D.
TuneFruit keeps it simple. They are a music library that has quality music, easy site navigation, and a very fun spirit. I think this sentence from their FAQ sums them up pretty well. "In a nutshell we sell cool music to cool people for cool projects."
These 3 libraries are not alone and there are a few more great sites that I’d like to suggest below in no particular order:
- Musco Sound
- 909 Music
