CSS Music / D.A.W.N. Music Offers Updated Royalty Free Music Bulk Download Plans-- $40 in FREE Downloads to Demonstrate

When it comes to the ultra competitive royalty free music market today, a plethora of delivery systems have cropped up each purporting to save the end user the most money while delivering the most product at the same time. It often boils down to two basic concepts, subscription plans vs. a bulk download plans.

On the surface both types of download plan appear the same but they actually work differently. Typical subscription plans come in both 1-month and 1-year terms. While they may offer “unlimited synchronizations” during their terms, downloads expire when the subscription expires. Music downloaded for a given production can not be re-used for subsequent productions. Bulk download plans on other hand work essentially like a pre-paid phone card. You fill up or re-fill the “card” and download until the money deposited is used up. The downloads themselves don’t expire and can be used in an unlimited number of productions typically for 50 - 99 years.

“Royalty Free Music subscription plans are really not royalty free in the traditional sense”, says CSS Music Creative Director, Mike Fuller, “1-month or 1-year subscription plans being offered today effectively re-invent the production blanket or annual blanket plans of old. Those plans were and still are inflexible and very expensive and were the reason royalty free music was invented in the first place back in 1978.

“We’ve recently updated our two bulk download plans at CSS Music / D.A.W.N. Music to offer even more bang for the buck, especially at the entry level. The typical end user saves 50-90% over regular single track downloads while preserving the integrity of true royalty free licensing. To demonstrate how easily and effectively CSS /D.A.W.N. Bulk Download Plans work, we’re offering $40 in FREE Downloads using our Plan I.”

The two CSS Music / D.A.W.N. Music Bulk Download Plans can be purchased online in one of 10 pricing tiers starting at $199 for 20 downloads. For more information on CSS Music /D.A.W.N.

Some new download subscription plans being offered are not really royalty free in the traditional sense. They are in reality quasi production and annual blanket plans. They purport to offer "unlimited downloads". But in reality they only offer unlimited synchronizations during a given month or year. If you purchase a BULK DOWNLOAD PLAN from CSS Music / D.A.W.N., every selection is licensed to you for a full 99 years, not just a month or a year. Use each and every downloaded selection as many times as you like in any given production and in an unlimited number of productions. Furthermore, there is never any time limit for taking your downloads. Take a day, take a week, take a year or more if you like. AND you'll never have any monthly subscription credit card charges that automatically get added to your account. If you have questions about how D.A.W.N. bulk download plans compare with these new plans from other libraries, please call us at 800-468.6874 and ask as many tough questions as you like. We're here to help. If you like unlimited synchronizations fine, but remember if you don't do enough in a given month to justify the expense, you may be wasting your money.

CSS Music Adds 15,000 New Sound Effects To Download Site

ZOUNDS! What Sounds!

Los Angeles based CSS Music / D.A.W.N. Music has just added 15,000 new sound effects to its download web site The new package called “Econo-fx” is delivered in either .mp3 320 or .wav file 44.1khz file formats.

“Econo-fx is the perfect compliment to our MAX-EFX and E-EFX packages,” explains CSS/D.A.W.N. creative director, Mike Fuller. “Both MAX-EFX and E-EFX were designed by radio production people and present effects using an ‘in your face’, ‘mind’s ear’ approach. Econo-fx on the other hand is a full service 23 category package that features the natural sound techniques of master sound recordist, Ric Viers. Some really good foley effects for example. Even the electronic effects sound real.

“I’ve always said that you can’t have enough sound effects” Fuller continued, “and it’s important to cover sounds from multiple perspectives. Econo-fx does this by covering most of the sounds in MAX-EFX and E-EFX and by adding thousands more. Econo-fx makes a great cost effective addition to any sound designer’s palette.”

Econo-fx is available on a one effect per track download basis. MAX-EFX and E-EFX sounds are delivered in a multiple effect per track basis. Econo-fx tracks download for $4 each in either 44.1khz format while MAX-EFX and E-EFX tracks download in full bandwidth for $7, with a 22khz format also available for $4. Both sound effects packages have their own search system. Econo-fx offers a “drill down” approach to its 23 categories making it possible to quickly reduce results from thousands to just a few effects. MAX-EFX and E-EFX provide a pull down menu plus a user entry keyword field.

CSS Music / D.A.W.N. Music offers offers more than 27,000 tracks of royalty free production music and sound effects and has served the AV/Video, film and broadcast industries since 1982. For more information, visit or or call 800-468-6874.
