CHICAGO, Sept. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Perfect Choice Music Library, the only music library to offer full production packages, today announced its official on-line launch. was created by Chicago-based, Emmy award-winning composer and producer Andy Mitran, and internationally acclaimed composer and artist Al Jewer.

"Through our many years of experience in custom music composition, we've learned what media editors and producers need and value. With, we have developed a new method of music delivery called the production package, which is unique in the industry," said Andy Mitran, the company's co-owner.

Mitran explained that a production package contains the main music mix plus numerous sub-mixes, as well as pre-edited bumpers*, stingers* and in most cases, loops.* This allows the editor or producer to utilize variations of the same piece of music throughout the production with no music editing required, creating musical continuity as well as time and cost savings. "Media editors who access our production packages find them extremely easy to use, and they don't need to edit music if they don't want to," Mitran explained.

Mitran also noted that, "one of our goals is to help producers and editors work faster and more efficiently. Music licensing has always been a cumbersome process for them, but we've solved that problem by eliminating the hassles involved in securing music licenses."

The site's ease of use also extends to how music is accessed. Visitors can search the music library using mood/feeling keywords, tempo, instrumentation, key or genre. Also, site members have access to a project page that can hold pieces of music for one or more projects for consideration. This project page, or any number of cues on it, can be shared with up to five people simultaneously by email, enabling project associates to screen music selections for approval.

Company co-owner Al Jewer noted that a key feature of the music library is that "every song has been mixed and mastered by us, which means we have all the master sessions at our fingertips. This enables us to customize any piece for any special need, quickly and affordably."

The music library is continually evolving and growing, with new music added every few months. For additional information, visit or send an email to
