Modern Instrumental Music Library
Have a question?
Email me at info@JDatkinson.com.

What is the advantage of licensing your tracks directly from your site, rather than another library?
1. The newest releases are here first, before ever being released to any other music library. Also “hidden gems” that are only available at JDatkinson.com!
2. It is more cost effective to directly license here than from other libraries (no “middle man”).  
3. You will receive a zip file with your purchase which includes all available formats, versions, and mixes of that title for no additional fees.


Is your music “Royalty-Free”?
Yes, but let me explain the “mystery” of what “Royalty-Free” really means.

There are two types of royalties: Mechanical and Performance.
Royalty free means no mechanical royalties are to be paid. Mechanicals are needle drop, meaning each time you want to synchronise the track to a production you have to pay a license. Royalty free means you only have to pay once and you can synch it to as many productions as you like afterwards. This is completely separate to performance royalties which are paid by networks. So if your project is to be broadcast, a cue sheet must be filed, with no additional cost to you.
All registration numbers can be found HERE.
Send electronic copies of your cue-sheet to cuesheets@bmi.com Or, mail hard-copies to:
BMI, Cue Sheet Department - 3rd Floor,
10 Music Square East, 
Nashville, TN   37203

What do your tracks cost, and where can I use them?
Very simple.... 
                    SINGLE TRACKS:  $40.00 (USD)
                    BLANKET LICENSE: Starting at $199.00 (USD)

Our Single Track License allows you to use my music for uses such as websites, videos, podcasts, in-store music, music on-hold, Radio/TV/Film or multiple location music-on-hold, multiple web sites and internet video sites including YouTube commercial rights license with YouTube Partner 'Revenue Sharing'. This license includes sync rights as well as mechanical rights. The license is worldwide and lasts in perpetuity. Cue sheets are required for broadcast use.

Do you offer a subcription, or license, that covers use of all of your music tracks?
Yes. Simply choose “Blanket License” in the upper right corner to have unlimited access to all music available on JDatkinson.com!

I have used other production music sites, can your website be trusted to provide a valid license?
Of course! The licensing procedure is actually done through our trusted partner Licensquote.com. They handle all licenses, as well as the actual financial transaction. Also, you are provided extra protection because the transaction is processed through PayPal. 

If you have any doubts, you can also license most of my tracks through JinglePunks.com or AudioSparx.com.

Are you available for custom music scores?
Absolutely! If you need custom music for your project, send me an email describing what you are looking for, and I will send you a draft (usually within 3-5 days). Absolutely no obligation!  (Honestly, if you can’t use it, I will find someone who will. I just love the challenge!) 

How do I stream, or play all of the tracks in the background from your site?
Simply enable the “continuous play” button in the player window. (See picture below.)

Why am I hearing “JDatkinson.com” in all of the preview tracks that I listen too?
Believe it or not, there has been a rash of “music thieves” that have been stealing music from sites like mine, re-titleing them, and selling them as their own! I needed to incorporate a watermarking system. I know it is a burden, but it is really the only safeguard from these *^#^%^&^@’s!!!! Who does that... REALLY?
But, be sure that these watermarks are not in your purchased files!

I purchased one of your tracks, and it just isn’t fitting in my project. What now?
That happens. If for any reason you purchased a track and can’t use it, contact me within a day or two of purchase, and I will refund 100% of your purchase price.
