How do I create an account?

On the Musicbed home page, select “Sign Up” in the upper right corner. Enter your name, email, and password and then answer the two “Personalize Your Experience” questions. Your account will automatically be created and you will be logged in!


What is a Pro Account?

If you spend $1000 or more in a calendar year or maintain a $2500 Account Balance — your account automatically becomes a Pro Account. This qualifies you to receive exclusives perks including discounts and (for our North American users) a copy of our annual Film + Music magazine. You can see what type of account you currently have by going to your account settings page: musicbed.com/account/settings.


What is a Platinum Account?

If you spend $2500 or more in a calendar year or maintain a $5000 Account Balance — your account automatically becomes a Platinum Account. This qualifies you to receive exclusive perks including discounts, a copy of our annual Film + Music magazine (for our North American users), and un-watermarked tracks to use in your editing process. You can see what type of account you currently have by going to your account settings page: www.musicbed.com/account/settings.

What does it mean to “follow” a playlist or artist?

How can I submit music?

Our artist approval process starts by creating an account on musicbed.com. On the home page, click on the "Sign Up" button and go through the necessary registration steps. Once registered, you will be logged into your new account.
