Some thoughts behind our ‘Suggested Production Types’1 min read

The “Suggested Production Types” music browsing tool is something that we introduced to our site quite recently. We used to have just a list of Music Genres (Jazz, Rock, Classical, Ambient…) and nothing else. But searching for the right music for your project can be more complicated than that. You may not know exactly which “music genre” you are looking for. You may simply be looking for something – anything – that works for your project.

This is why we introduced the Suggested Production Types. You can find this as a Browse button in the music browsing tool on the right-hand side of our site. Click on Suggested Production Types and you’ll be able to click on things like “Relaxation, Spa & Indulgence” or “Spy, Secret Agent, Undercover” and more, to bring up a list of music tracks that we felt would work well in those types of productions – regardless of the actual music genre of that track.

Additionally, we’ve written a page where we illustrate and explain a little bit about what we mean by the various “Suggested Production Types” and what criteria we’ve used when selecting music tracks for each of them. A little bit of background as to what makes certain music / sounds work well for a particular genre of production, be it a video game, TV show, YouTube video, or any other media.

Should you be interested in reading about each of our Suggested Production Types and the thought process behind them, click here. Hope you enjoy it.
