Technical Support Update, October 17, 2017: User Interface Changes for F.S.M. Registered Users:
From the time that The F.S.M Royalty Free Music service was originally launched in 2008, the listing of dre-defined soundtrack search terms was clustered at the top of ALL of the listing pages. As more and more music categories, genres and dramatic production terms were added to the available list, the top portion of the user interface became crowded, forcing the music search listings further down the page: so that only a few tracks were visible without scrolling down. The new interface design features a drop-down selector located in the right-hand column of the frame: To access all of the predefined music search keywords, you must now select from one of the following five categories: "Music Genre or Style", "Composer or Producer", "Music for Emotions and Moods", "Dramatic Category", "Main Musical Instrument(s)" and "Special Use, Holidays". Here is a screenshot of the new music library interface:
Hopefully, this new way of finding soundtrack music on the F.S.M system will be self-explanatory and easier to manage than previous versions of the interface, but if you encounter any issues, please email email@example.com.
