APM Music (a joint venture of Sony Music Publishing and Universal Music Publishing) is the largest production music library in North America offering the most comprehensive collection of high-quality music for all kinds of media. As a referral partner of CCC, APM Music provides licensing and access to more than 1 million tracks.
Production music is music that’s created and designed for usage in TV, Film, Advertising, Corporate Videos, Video Games and other creative media. This is different from commercial music, which is what you hear on the radio and music streaming platforms.
Without even knowing it, you’ve probably heard APM’s music many times in movies, TV shows, commercials, video games and definitely in sports.
APM’s repertoire of 1 million+ tracks from 150+ member libraries is represented by us exclusively in the United States and Canada. This magnificent collection is produced and commissioned by songwriters, composers and lyricists all over the world from the industry’s most respected and admired libraries including KPM Music, Bruton, Sonoton, and Cezame. APM acquires additional music from existing collections of archival music, indie artists and other sources like NFL Films, Major League Baseball, Discovery Networks and other wonderful sources!
What is a Music License & Why Do I Need One?
A license is the legal and necessary permission to use any music in any production. When you license music, you need to obtain the rights to two distinct things: the composition and the recording of that composition. These two sides of a music license are often referred to as the "publishing" (or the ‘synch’) and the "master" rights, respectively.
APM Music is an easy solution because we grant both the publishing and master rights for the music in our catalog – and at a lower cost than clearing popular or known music. If you’re synchronizing music to any media, APM is a one-stop-shop to help you get the music you need. We offer turnkey licensing with full indemnification.
