Project Bin  

    The Project Bin is a useful tool for collecting and organizing a list of production music tracks which are suitable for your project. In addition to collecting all of your chosen tracks in one place, the Project Bin allows you to write and save notes for each track, download temporary files to audition in your production, and share the collection with others involved with the production. Please Note: You must be logged in to your FasTrack Music account in order to utilize this feature.

  • Adding Tracks
  • To add tracks to the Project Bin, simply click the 'Add to Project Bin' button located in each track listing or on the individual track page. After clicking this button, you will be redirected to the Project Bin or to the Log In page (if you aren't currently logged in).

  • Notes
  • Notes can be helpful reminders as to where and how a specific track is to be used, and they can be particularly useful when sharing the Project Bin with others. To write notes for a track, click in the text field in the column labeled, Your Notes, and type your notes. These are your personal notes and cannot be seen by other users of the site, (unless you invite them). !!Important : You must click 'Save Notes' at the bottom of the grid when you are finished with your notes, or else the notes will be removed once you leave the page. Once the notes are saved, they will remain attached to the track as long as the track remains in the Project Bin.

These temporary sound files are for audition purposes only and may not be used in final productions under any circumstances. (Please be sure to read the Terms Of Use for more information.)
