HOW OFTEN DO YOU ADD NEW MUSIC TO THE CORESOUND CATALOG?

We add fresh, new content to the Coresound catalog weekly.  At present, there are typically five to eight new songs that are added per month. 

WHAT MUSICAL GENRES ARE MOST REPRESENTED IN THE CORESOUND CATALOG?

The musical genres in our catalog cover a wide variety, since there are a wide variety of uses and video types each church needs! The main categories include modern inspirational pop/rock, organic folk/acoustic, light cinematic/piano-centric, dark cinematic/moody, and a modern ambient sound.  Though you will find several songs that also fall outside those genres, too!

WHAT TYPE OF AUDIO FILES DO I RECEIVE WHEN I PURCHASE A SONG?

Coresound audio files are delivered as 48k/24-bit WAV files - the gold standard of today's video production.  Every one of our files, from full versions to short loop-sections, are the same high-quality WAV files format.  

HOW LONG IS EACH SONG?

A typical production music song length averages between 2-4 minutes, which is what you will find in much of our catalog. 

The Full Version of each one of our songs is roughly 2-4 minutes, but you also receive many other song-lengths with your purchase, including a 60 Second Cut, a 30 Second Cut, 1-2 loop sections for indefinite looping, and any other alternate versions or lengths.  Pick the perfect length for your video project!
