    I need a production music library for medium sized public access studio. My
    options are to lease or to buyout.

    I had experience with the libraries abiout 15 years ago. The best was
    Associated Production Music - very interesting music, well-recorded. A close
    runnerup was Network Music. You get about 10-15 CDs, and you can replace a
    couple each year. But it is about $350. each year.

    I notice that Tech-Nec has an interesting buyout set. You buy it, you own it.
    And I notice that Digital Juice has not only regular CDs, but they have the
    mults on CD-ROM so you can remix as needed in an NLE.

    Anybody know what TODAY is the best buy for a small operation? I mean GOOD
    themes, well-recorded, good value for the money, lots of options, etc.

  2. http://www.dplay.com/tutorial/libcards.html may be of some
    value in sorting out what is available. Jay has the experience
    and awards to prove that he knows what he's talking about.

    We use the "Directors Cuts" from Extreme Music. It has a huge and extensive
    range of music.

    Kinda pricy though.

  4. Check out <http://www.magnatune.com>. If it's public access TV, they
    consider it non-commercial and don't charge a license fee (and you can use
    a CD-quality copy if you have it, you don't have to use the 128 kbit MP3s
    they offer to let you download).

    Thanks to all for the suggestions.

    I'd have replied sooner, but even though my posts were getting out, I could not
    see then on AOL's version of newsgroups - until I complained yesterday, now I
    can see about a month's worth of my posts!
