The Music Bed has just released a cool little iOS app and it is a fantastic way to research what music you want for your project while you are mobile. You can search for music by different criteria, apply for a license, create a wish list, and much more. To celebrate the release, they’ve got 30 Days of Giveaways where you could win $1,500 in song licenses, an iPad Retina from TMB, plus tons of prizes from the likes of Kessler, Rode, Zacuto, LensProToGo and more.
Below is a quick tour of how it works using an iPad.
Once you have logged in, the home screen comes showing the menu bar on left and current featured artists. When you select an artist, a list of their songs comes up with a player.
Get Music brings up a search window.
When you touch a button, different search options are available to select, offering a more refined search for the type of music track you are looking for.
Once you choose an artist from the search, you can listen to the track. You can also create wish lists that can be shared or emailed.
Playlists are another option for finding music. These offer a variety of tracks relevant to the description provided about the playlist.
From here you can see what kind of license is available for a specific track and apply for the license directly within the app.
To get started, create an account and download the app for your iPhone and/or iPad. Then check your email for a 10% discount off your first purchase.
