Non-Stop Music says its track library, and the other libraries or collections it administers, can now be searched and downloaded with more speed and efficiency.
The CUEgle music search and download engine gives broadcasters access to 1,100 CDs with some 37,000 tracks of original composed music, arranged and recorded at a soundstage in Salt Lake City.
Visitors to CUEgle will find large images of the CD covers for each collection, marked by names such as “Action Premier 1,” “Suspence 4” and “Tenor Sax Quartet – Bossa Nova.” They can be clicked to display track title, length and a quick description.
Each MP3 track can be previewed and downloaded to the user’s desktop, where it can be inserted into the project. Users in need of highest-quality WAV or AIF file can conduct their CUEgle search online, then pull the files from a CUEgle-supplied hard drive. If they choose the track, the usual blanket or needle drop licenses apply.
Added search capabilities include 28 categories to facilitate searches, such as “Atmospheric Chillout,” “Country and Western” and “Kitsch Retro Lounge.” Users also can narrow or broaden their music searches with keywords. Music consultants also are available to make suggestions regarding the library.
