Tunefruit Featured Stock Music License: Visual Commerce™ by Marxent

Our latest featured stock music license appears to come from the future. A future where married couples will no longer pick the wrong countertop for their kitchen.

This is a future that I would most assuredly like to live in.  BUT WAIT! It’s totally not the future, it’s right now. The folks over at Marxent developed this 3D solution that allows companies to virtually show-off their wares (countertops, windows, cabinets…you get the idea, right?) in the context of a client’s personal surroundings (THEIR kitchen, THEIR bathroom). This pretty much takes the guesswork (and, let’s face it, marital strife) out of the equation of making decisions around big home purchases. AMEN. 

Click on the snapshot above to watch the video on how this software works. 

Here’s a little more info on what Visual Commerce can do:

Tunefruit Featured Stock Music License: Slider Lapse (Kickstarter)

Tunefruit-Featured-License BIG

Hey, we’re a little late to the Slider Lapse party (that’s how we like to think of Kickstarter projects…giant parties with craft beer, no door guy, and sweet, sweet indie-dance rock playing), but that’s ok, because we still HAVE 35 hours for us to get the word out about this neat-o gadget for video enthusiasts that want to do time lapse filming and slide while they do it.

It’s like the electric slide, but totally different.

Ha.

Click below to check out the video, and then go and pledge a bunch of moolah so the world can have this AWESOME new gadget!

Our newest stock music for video license is from the fabulously fantastic folks over at Tomahawk Visual Effects. BTW…their URL is TMHK.TV…what if we decided to do that? What would it look like? Let’s try it…hold…working…here we go:

TNFT.CM

I don’t know…doesn’t look as cool as TMHK…and that’s ok, because these guys (and maybe girls, who knows?) are way cooler than us. Their client list is chocked full of cool clients that obviously like their video to look amazing…seriously…go check out the work that Tomahawk is doing. It’s totes yummy. We would know.

In this specific case, they did a very sweet little explainer video for Virtuous, a site that works as a non-profit CRM for charities.

Tunefruit Featured Stock Music License: HospitalitySeeker.com

Tunefruit-Featured-License BIG

Our latest featured stock music license is for the fantastically fine folks (the three F’s!) over at HospitalitySeeker.com.  They help people buy, sell, and lease, hotel, tourism, and leisure properties in Italy (yes, it’s shaped like a boot). This fruit feels like he could have eliminated a few commas in that last sentence, but our 6th grade english teacher would be muy infeliz.

Ammirite?

You can also figure out the market value of your property on HospitalitySeeker.com, too. Which is pretty cool, especially if you want to become a real estate mogul like Donald Trump, or at least Thurston Howell III (Look it up, he apparently owned all of downtown Denver!).

Gilligan’s Island jokes aside, head over to HospitalitySeeker.com right now to find out more.

“Loving it” Weekly May 13th Playlist with Guava, Tunefruit’s Stock Music Specialist

Tunefruit-The-Hotness

 

Here’s this week’s taste of some fresh new music coming into our stock music library that I (Guava) just absolutely love!

1. “Digital Funk” – Max Power

What’s old is new again.  Classic old school disco funk with the modern twist.  French dudes with robot heads would love it.

2. “Don’t Try to Catch Me” – Libra Music

Don’t even know what to make of this one – except we hear so much music around here that something this truly different and unique is sure to catch our ears.  It’s odd kooky wacky downright strangeness might be just the thing when you need the unexpected and indescribable.

3. “Slap That Bass” – Porrazzo

As advertised, there is lots of slap bass in this track.  It’s classic flea – old school “Uplift Mofo Party Plan” era Red Hot Chili Peppers.  It’s sure to uplift your party.

4. “Funny Acoustic Funk” – Ilyatruhanov

Immaculate guitar recording and performance.  Bright bouncy happy summer fun.  Good times!

5. “Dragonheart Epic Heroic” – Peter M.

If you’re gonna name your track “Dragonheart” it better deliver soaring epic grandeur – big drums, triumphant horns, and just when you think it can’t get any bigger it better take it up a few notches.  This track does all of that and more.  You bring the dragons and we’ll supply the soundtrack.

6. “Beautiful Soul” – stevecollom

OK, since we obviously couldn’t get any bigger than the previous track we had to step in a different direction.  This beautiful acoustic track evokes feelings of being at peace – one with nature.  Shimmering acoustic guitars and light piano undertones make a pastoral setting that makes us want to unplug and take in the scenery.  Good idea actually – I’m outta here!

Well…I think this has to be the cutest Tunefruit Featured Music License we have ever showcased.

In a nutshell, Tout builds sales apps for salespeople. And, it’s all layered on top of the foundation of the interwebs… email communication.

With the flip of an e-switch (we just came up with that!), you can have Tout reminding you when to email prospects, use macros instead of re-writing the same email over and over, see who is opening your email, and about a hundred other incredible useful email sales tools. Tout really wants to speed up the sales process for your organization.

That seems nifty to us.

Check out what their customers are saying about Tout by clicking on the video above. The videos are just shy of gushing…and really, can you blame them? More sales makes everyone happy, and Tout makes it easier to ring the “bell” more often. We’re thrilled they used Tunefruit to find the right music for these videos, too!

Tunefruit Featured Stock Music License: BITE Beauty

Tunefruit-Featured-License BIG

bite
This latest featured stock music license gives this fruit (Mango) an opportunity to make plenty of fruit jokes (our featured license is BITE Beauty), but….no. I’m not doing it. I will not bite.

Dang.

Ok, so a little bit about BITE Beauty. Bite Beauty is a natural lip care company operating out of downtown Toronto. Their mission is to create lipstick that is high performance and healthy enough to eat for women everywhere.

As they say on the site…

“This is where we keep our inspirations – things we see, things we hear, things we wear. We’ll share what we can and teach what we know.”

This video is a sweet little wrap of what happens behind the scenes at a BITE Beauty shoot. As you would expect, it looks pretty much like a photo shoot for Tunefruit…eh…not really.

Tunefruit Tech and Music Mashup: Vinyl is Back!

Tunefruit-Tech-Talk

Snap.  Crackle.  Pop.  No, I am not talking about eating a bowl of Rice Krispies.   That is the familiar, or not so familiar sound (depending on your age) of playing a vinyl record.  To the surprise of many, vinyl is back.  In 2013, there were 6.1 million vinyl records sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. That is a 33 percent increase in sales from 2012.  For comparison, in 1993 there were less than 1 million records sold.  The surge is attributed to the fact that some buyers now want a tangible product.  Something that they can touch and feel.  

There is also the sound quality.  Since MP3s are compressed, certain frequencies are left out.  This can leave the listener with a less than ideal listening experience, even if they don’t know it.  I would agree that vinyl has an undeniable warmth to it that has yet to be re-created digitally.  Back in the 90s, producers of R&B Neo-Soul tracks would add a “static” track to their productions, with the crackling, to give it that dusty groove feel.  It gave the song some character.

I also wonder if there is a psychological component to it.  You actually have to sit down and listen to a record, as opposed to being on the train, going for a jog or just plain multitasking.  Perhaps our concentration is more focused in that regard, allowing us to perceive the music as “sounding better”.

With vinyl coming back into the retail space, will we also see this resurgence in other areas?  I wonder if DJs would ever go back to carrying crates of records?  These days, all you need is your MacBook Pro, Serato software and controller, an MP3 playlist and you are on your way to playing your next party.  Trust me, that setup is much easier on the lower back.  This resurgence overall is definitely a surprising development, since we have been told for so long by several entities and authorities on the matter that vinyl was absolutely dead and it would never come back.  Oh, how things change.
