Music Libraries
« on: August 11, 2019, 07:12:29 PM »
Quick question: anyone aware of a reasonably priced service to purchase "radio ready" music libraries from? Back in the day, we used Century 21 Programming's "GoldDisc 3" series for our broadcast library. I ripped the 70s and 80s ACC disc set to mp3 about 10 years ago (*as 128k sadly) and I have ripped various 80s music to mp3 from my CD libraries, but I have found that some of the versions of music are (1) not the original [remastered or redone or other] and (2) are not the original broadcast versions of the songs. While the album versions are fine, what I really want is the broadcast edits. Also, having something better than 128k would be ideal!

I want to en masse upgrade my rotation, but not at the risk of nuking my station. Right now, I have tweaked everything and added a boatload of music - and was hoping there were reasonably priced collections out there.

As far as i know there is not realy a ready to go solution. The only thing you can do is redo everything so hook up a CD player or turntable and start redigitizing. everything. Or you have to find a very good friend that can give you a boatload of tracks. Some countries it is possible to just download the music from everywere and unless you don't pay royalties, you're good to go. The source of the track doesn't matter in this case. Other countries you need to have the original copy of the track like CD, single or prove that you bought the track digitally.
