The Music Bed is a music licensing website that has become very popular for small scale productions over the course of the last two years. They offer original quality music and instrumental tracks by independent musicians and bands.
Their website was relaunched to offer new features and easier browsing for filmmakers.

TMB5-Press_3What’s new?
Basically the whole website has been redesigned and restructured. On the old website it was hard to discover new music as many times you would find the same (good) titles over and over. It wasn’t easy to find very specific things you were looking for.

This has changed. Apparently every song has been retagged from scratch. They say:
For the past six months, during every moment of every day, five members of The Music Bed team have been relistening to our entire song catalog — three times through. Everything has been retagged and recategorized to be more accurate and more intuitive.

TMB5-Press_1Another new feature is that now you can not only browse their database by mood or genre, but also by characteristic, length or vocal constellations. Impressive!
I can’t remember to have seen this kind of advanced search anywhere else.

There are a few other features like song history, visual waveforms, multitag search and more. Most importantly though the music itself is really powerful, original and inspiring which is also why we as cinema5D use The Music Bed as a prime source for our camera review music.

Many other filmmakers have good things to say about the music bed and they have made a nice promo film featuring names like Bloom, La Foret and Hurlbut. Check it out here:

Adobe is really pushing their Creative Cloud now that CS6 is out since May.

Maybe they didn’t get as many subscriptions as they intended to get, maybe this whole cloud thing is just too new and complicated for people to really pick it up.
Anyway, they’re now really driving the ad mill and throwing out a deal until the end of August. You’ve got to own any previous Adobe CS app (CS3 or higher) and they give you $29.95/month instead of $49.95/month for the whole first year.

 
 
Adobe Creative Cloud explained (again):
Basically is the whole Creative Suite (CS6 as the real apps!) with some advanced cloud sharing features (like Apple iCloud), but you’re paying on a monthly basis, just as long as you use the Suite, much like an App Store if you will.

The cloud version of CS6 will set you back $600 $360 (with August deal) a year while the retail version of the whole bundle (“Master Collection“) is $2599 and the lighter, filmmaking oriented package “Production Premium CS6” is $1799. And since we can expect another next version next year anyway that’s a pretty good deal for a serious suite like that.

The downside is that you cannot use the cloud on a month-by-month basis, so you cannot only use it during September while editing and save the money cause you’re out shooting during October.

Maybe Adobe wants to take over the disappointed Final Cut Pro people before Final Cut Pro X really takes off (if ever). It’s a fact that you’ve got to put in more braincells to learn CS6 than any Apple product.
 

US:
Get started with Adobe Creative Cloud (yearly plan) for $29.95: LINK

For Europe:
Adobe Creative Cloud (yearly plan) for 36,89€ (instead of 61,49€): LINK

Why is it more expensive in Europe? Because we have taxes.
