So what is NoiseHeap you might ask? In its’ own words it is a “modern music licensing company”. We’ll explain. In an ideal world we would all hire talented musicians to write original music every production we did. However, we all know that budgets don’t always make that possible. In the past we worked with professionals using music libraries. These were music beds and loops we could license, for specific uses. Over time, more and more libraries started to make their way into the online universe, seemingly making it easier for producers to find affordable music to gather for their projects. Unfortunately, like many things on the Internet, more is not necessarily better. Faced with seemingly endless loops and music beds that all sound pretty much the same, the quest to find quality, affordable music seemed to be getting more difficult.
So along comes NoiseHeap. They decided it would be better and more effective to offer focused quality music then vast amounts of not so hot material. Then they spent a good amount of creative energy putting together an intuitive interface. To top that off, their team took the idea of meta tagging their material in a meaningful way as a serious enterpirse. So what does that all mean to you, the producer looking to find the right music to go with your piece? It means NoiseHeap has made this process easier and better.
