APM signs with Unity to sell licensed music via the Asset Store

Unity has cut a deal with notable film, TV and game music services company APM Music that will see APM selling licenses to much of its music catalog through a new branch of the Unity Asset Store.
Unity has cut a deal with APM Music, the music production company responsible for licensing out tracks that back many notable games, films and television shows, that will see APM selling access to much of its music catalog through a new branch of the Unity Asset Store. This suggests that APM is acknowledging the importance of both Unity itself and the independent developers who use it; the music company launched its game licensing division eight years ago with a licensing process targeted at large-scale studios. But while you can hear music from the APM library in games like Far Cry 3 and Call of Duty: Ghosts, the company more commonly licenses out tracks for use in productions like Dallas Buyer's Club or True Detective. Now that APM has a deal with Unity, developers with a Unity Store account should be able to more easily license individual tracks from APM composers and collections. "This is a really huge deal for our community of developers," stated Unity chief David Helgason in a press release confirming the deal. "Weave evened out another aspect of development that was once heavily weighted to big budgets and deep connections." For more information on the deal and a link to browse through the new APM Music branch of Unity's storefront, head over to the Unity blog.
