I don't understand why the music would need to be royalty free.
No indie filmmaker wants to be bothered with accounting and paying out quarterly payments based on units sold.

But mechanical and composer royalties are not collected on DVD sales of films. So unless you had an arrangement with your composer that he would get a percentage of units sold you would not be paying anything out. The default position is no royalty per unit sold. Royalties are only collected from public broadcasting and once the film maker fills out a cue sheet they have no more to do. Performance Royalty Organizations do the collecting and distributing.

More than anything, film makers, including myself, feel comfortable using Royalty Free Music.... while the chances of our doors getting knocked down for collection is slim, but it's a comfort zone we like to stay in. I like to know that no matter what, my music cannot be challenged. (By that I mean a festival can't give me a hard time about it or whatnot)

By the way I finally went over to "JewelBeat" because it had been mentioned a few times in this thread. I took a brief look at it and very much like the concept, though I don't really get the flash drive thing. (I'll do more reading later) at 99c per royalty free track, if they are quality thats a screaming deal.

EDIT: I checked out Jewel Beat and it is amazing... I found 2 tracks I desperately needed.... I actually found a track for my Indiana Jones film that sounds exactly like the Indiana Jones theme, just altered and lower. Between this and Kevin MacLeod's stuff (incompetech), there's plenty of cheap, if not free stuff on the net.

www.SmartSound.com has a cool set of features for adding high-impact royalty free music to your project. They are the only ones with this patented process that makes the music the exact length that you want. Most of the music also comes with each instrument on a separate track so you can arrange the sound to fit your project. It works great, and saves a bunch of time.

Soundtrack Pro has a long list of free tracks in many styles. The tracks are horribly overused (I hear them in low-budget TV commercials all the time), but if you just want music that fits your project and don't care where it comes from, it's a useful source. I'm sure you know somebody with a copy.

Beatlesfan1225 thanks for checking out the site and great that it was useful. I have been super busy and just got married so that explains it all. We are pretty new but I think what we have speaks for itself in terms of value and quality. Some pretty exciting things are brewing too so do look out and pass the word on.

Has anyone mentioned Jamendo.com yet? I like it, now it's just royalty free so you can't use it commercially but I believe they have a feature where you can attain rights to it with purchase. Anyway for commercial free use it's good, lots of good stuff on there.

Game Beep is generally focused on game development, but a few audio packs might carry over into film, such as:
