Anyone who has worked their way up in radio production has somewhere along the line encountered the Killer Tracks royalty-free music library (a part of the BMG Music empire).
These beds and bumpers come in almost any conceivable pace, emotion, style or flavor – contemporary or historical. Tracks are generally available in a long version with 60-second, 30-second, 15-second and 10-second snips accompanying. Some pieces have a softer “narration” mix also available.
The latest includes “Crime Drama” (suspense), “Heartfelt Storytellers” (deep emotion), “Indie Film,” “Lush Emotional Rock” and “Big Brassy Beats.”
Killer Tracks also offers Killer Edge and Killer Latino, along with associations to over a dozen other royalty-free music libraries under the same corporate umbrella.
But one shouldn’t think of this music as just a radio tool. Videographers, corporate and independent TV producers, broadcasters, houses of worship, anyone producing media and in need of music can make use of these products.
Recently Killer Tracks merged with another royalty-free music library titan, Network Music.
