To have your music noticed today, you need an online presence. While you may opt to show off your tracks on Myspace, there are certain advantages to having your own website.

Our sister site, ActiveDen, has some fantastic and affordable Flash resources that will make you stand out from the crowd. We feature 20 of their best site templates and audio players.

1. Advanced XML Website - Perfect for musician

"Advanced XML Website is an Flash (AS3) fully XML driven website template that allows you to modify the whole content without even opening the source files. It’s perfect for an musician website.

6. Multiple Music Projects site template

"The mbudm#004 template is aimed at individual musicians or bands/music collectives that dabble in more than one music project. Inspiration has come from people I know for whom music is their main interest and so they are always embarking on new and interesting side projects while simultaneously organising their main band or collective.

"The big challenge in making a music template is that by nature musicians are highly individual and have incredibly different needs. Because of this I have added in as much flexibility as I can so that this template can be transformed into a site that truly represents you, your band and your projects."

7. The Music Band Template - with PHP and MySQL

"The Music Band Template is a flash template packed with many features. It has been created for the Music Template competition from ActiveDen, therefore it has the functionality of a Music Band Fan Site. However, the template is easily customisable and you can personalise it as you wish."

Each image is associated with a caption that shows up on rollover. There are also next and back buttons that hide when they are on the first or last image. There is even a button that makes this template fullscreen."

19. ADG3 : Simple Sound Controller

"A simple music on/off controller, with animated levels.

"The difference here is that the music fades in or out gradually, as opposed to cutting out immediately.

"If you are detail oriented, you may agree, it’s a small difference that comes across as smoother, less harsh on the user’s ear.

"Aside from the decor in the file, the controller is contained in a single movie clip, which can be dropped into any flash project.

"If you wish to remove the rising dots animation, that’s easy too, just delete layer 2 in the mc called music player bar, in the library.

"The file size of this controller is only 1 kb, but depending on the length of the loop you choose and the compression you set, the total size added to a movie will vary, naturally.

"Included as a bonus here is one of my loops, which you can use as you see fit in any of your flash projects. Hope you like it"
