How To Use This Site
Search For Music
There’s actually 2 search engines on this site. One is up to your right on the top of the site. This one is an overall site search. You can type in band names or songs or moods to get these kind of results:
Lady Gaga https://www.300monks.com/?s=gaga
or a famous piece like Ride of the Valkyries. https://www.300monks.com/?s=valkyries
Product Specific Search
The following Search Box is specific to the product catalog. This can be useful in finding the track you previously downloaded and you only have the name of the file.
Browsing for Music
In the top Navigation Menu there’s 2 pulldown menus.
a) Browse Music By Genre
This is the fancy name music programmers (and the Head Monk) use for style as in like Rock or Hip-Hop or Country etc.
b) Browse Music By Mood
This is like how filmmakers think when they’re setting a scene. Or like when you’re searching for a movie to watch at Netflix or iTunes, things like Action-Adventure or Horror or Romantic Comedy. Some of us monks think it would be cool if you could put Horror music to a Romantic Comedy!
c) Browse Music By Setting
This is describing what type of project you are working on such as a Wedding Video or a Documentary or a Trailer. Did you know that Book Authors are making trailers all the time now? That’s nifty!
Your site is great (fair prices and easy to use) I will go nowhere but your site for all of my music clip needs (period) (I hope you crush your competition) KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK VERY, VERY SATISFIED CUSTOMER
Download a Preview File
After you find a track or many soundtracks that you like, you can easily download a preview file to try out in your project. This way you can really sense if it’s working and even show it to your client, producer, mother, significant other or even your cat.
Here’s a screenshot of a recently Featured Product.
After clicking the triangle play button, it launches a preview player at the bottom of the window. It should look like this:
The Download Preview button actually opens the track in a new tab or window in your browser from which you can just Save to your Desktop or forward to your Editor, Client or friend.
Notice you can skip ahead in the playback and see the entire wave form of the music. This makes it easier to know if there will be big changes in the music coming and where they are.
There is a Download Preview icon – the Down Arrow next to the play head. This will allow you to download a track to try out in your Non-Linear Editing system.
After you have finalized your music choice, come back to the site and purchase the license for the use you need.
There’s a handy dropdown menu that you can use and it updates the price as you select.
If you need a fast way to find your track again, type in the name of the preview file you downloaded.
For example: GeoffreyWilson5 or jean_paul_zoghbi30.
We use both PayPal and 2Checkout to process payments. You can choose either one.
After checkout you will be returned to the 300 Monks site for a download link. You will also receive a link in your email that is valid for up to 48 hours.
