San Francisco, CA – December 2, 2014 – Unity Technologies, creator of the Unity engine and development platform, and APM Music, the premiere provider of production music for AAA games, major TV programs and top Hollywood films, have entered into a groundbreaking agreement to bring APM Music to the Unity Asset Store marketplace at accessible prices and easy licensing.
With hundreds of thousands of tracks of production music, available from trendsetting artists and legendary musicians, APM Music has helped bring to life countless numbers of incredible games from the likes of EA, Activision, SCEA, Ubisoft, Microsoft and others. Now for the first time, APM music is available to millions of Unity developers through the Asset Store. Through the Asset Store, developers will be able to license top quality music at affordable prices, bringing significant savings to developers seeking big impact from their audio without breaking the bank. Additionally, tracks are licensed through a single click-through legal agreement.
To keep the licensing process as smooth as possible, APM and Unity have collaborated to integrate the APM search engine and library directly within the Asset Store so that customers never need leave the store to complete the transaction.
“This is a really huge deal for our community of developers,” said David Helgason, Unity Technologies Founder and EVP. “They now have access to an unbelievable wealth of music tracks at easily attainable prices. APM Music is where many of the world’s leading publishers and movie producers come to license tracks and, working together, we’ve evened out another aspect of development that was once heavily weighted to big budgets and deep connections.”
“This is an opportunity to bring our vast catalog to the most passionate game community in the industry,” said Adam Taylor, APM Music President. “Unity has been on an amazing growth track providing tremendous resources to all levels of game developers and we’re incredibly excited to be working with Unity in this breakthrough partnership.”
