Yeah, what a lot of music libraries are doing is creating their own basic website for a splash page and a couple of other pages (maybe credits or about us or custom music, or something) but then when you click on the button for "Music" or "Search" or "Catalog" they have it redirect to their Source Audio page.

And some libraries now just use SourceAudio for everything since you can post video reels, make custom pages, and customize your SourceAudio site to some degree. Within the admin tools there is a graphic interface to do a lot of the customization to your own site (it's mainly all drag an drop) The downside to SourceAudio is there is a standardization to the layout and formatting of the website. So you can't create anything that is truly visually unique to you... but the upside to that is for client portals, everything you put up works when they log into their portal.

I'd submit that whether it's good or not is irrelevant. The only thing that matters is if it fits the clients' need.

Production music is the definition of background music.. it conveys a style (country, top 40, urban) and otherwise doesn’t have any elements that really stick out (giant gtr solo, etc)

But everyone I know who has made a independent film for low budget knows other creative people and always finds someone who does the music for free.

It's low budget stuff. And creative people almost always know other creative people who need to add credits to their name. We are not talking Hans Zimmer and Ridley Scott here.

Hell, there are actually established film production companies here that regularly blast the internal list server of music and film students looking for anyone who wants to do soundtracks for free.

And that is probably also why their independent films never go anywhere or makes any money

The kind of stuff linked above is used by NBC, ABC, CBS, etc all the time in shows (Young Sheldon and a few other shows use the 80's and 90's stuff A LOT!). It also goes around the world and gets a lot of use in Central and South America surprisingly.

Their independent film don't go anywhere because they are just not very good films. Even a Johan Johansen could not save them from dregg.

Very true... I've worked on a few indie films I tried desperately to keep my name OFF of for that very reason. Every time I look at my IMDB I'm like "ouch... I finally almost forgot about that film... but there it is. doh!"
