Megatrax remains one of the few major production music companies founded by composers and still run by composers. A true entrepreneurial start-up, Megatrax was established in 1991 when USC composers JC Dwyer and Ron Mendelsohn teamed up to provide music for LA-based television networks. The high impact, custom sound of the young company quickly established Megatrax as the go-to library for promotion and advertising worldwide.
Since inception, Megatrax has always been driven by an obsession for quality and a passion for music that is impactful and emotional. You won’t find any “filler” here; we only release music that is eminently usable and effective for your productions.
We seek out top talent, hire great musicians, work with acclaimed orchestrators and arrangers, and insist on using the best mastering houses in town- all to ensure that the music we produce is truly first rate. Unlike some companies that simply aggregate preexisting music anonymously from the Internet, all of our music is newly commissioned and custom-crafted by seasoned composers, arrangers and orchestrators with major film, TV, videogame and record credits.
Megatrax remains one of the only production music houses to maintain a professional world-class recording studio as we believe that this facility has been a key factor in establishing our sonic quality. Instead of having to rely on samples or simulated electronic sounds, we can (and do) record the real thing. On any given day, top LA session players, bands, ensembles and orchestras are hosted in our studios.
From our renowned Movie Showcase orchestral series to our dazzling big band Swingers and Crooners album to our stunning Brazilian album Sabor Brasil, everything we do is driven by a passion for producing music that is truly real and exceptional.
We believe that quality counts. And we believe that great music is something that has the power to move us profoundly. It is this passion that has driven Megatrax for more than 20 years.
