Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 15, 2008
AudioMicro.com announces two exclusive licensing agreements and unveils a cash advance royalty contest for new stock music uploads. The maverick micro stock music licensing platform has been engaged to represent the AE Music Publishing Archive, with over 1,000 full compositions from 8 decorated composers, including multiple Grammy nominated composer, David Arkenstone. The AE Music Publishing archive includes numerous tracks that have previously been placed in programming on major television networks including FOX, MTV, ABC, A&E, TLC, VH1, Fox Sports Net, and E! Entertainment.
In addition, AudioMicro has secured a deal with world renowned sound designer, Ric Viers, instantly upgrading its library with over 15,000 new sound effects and production elements. Ric Viers' sound effects have previously been integrated into Sony and Apple software, including Garage Band, Final Cut Pro, and Logic Studio. His TV/Film credits include placements in programming on ABC, CBS, HBO, MTV, and ESPN, among many others. Mr. Viers is the author of a new book, "The Sound Effects Bible", which will be available in stores this fall.
With the announcement of these two deals, AudioMicro opens up a new, ecommerce enabled archive of high quality content to individuals and professionals alike, including YouTube video makers, film producers, short filmmakers, and video game designers, all for prices of $1 per minute. The combination of the two deals makes AudioMicro the largest micro stock music archive available for commercial music licensing in the world.
In addition to the two archive agreements, AudioMicro announces a new contest for artists submitting content to the AudioMicro licensing platform. Contributors will automatically receive a cash advance of 50 cents per accepted music upload. For example, if an artist submits 200 accepted music tracks, the user will receive a cash advance of $100. The offer applies to music uploads only, not sound effects, and runs until the time at which AudioMicro amasses a music archive of 10,000 tracks.
