A “User” is any person at your company (employee or contractor) who will be working with the sound effects library.

You’re allowed to create an unlimited number of synchronized productions, meaning you may mix sound effects with other elements (e.g. video, other sonic). It must be used in “Sync” with other forms of media. You can also edit, layer, process, warp, and twist sounds to oblivion.

Our standard license covers usage for one (1) User – if you have multiple people at your company or organization who will be working with the sound effects library, you must obtain a multi-user license.

For a more complete rundown of how licensing works, check out our Licensing Page, or contact us at [email protected], or call 615-864-4616.

You cannot re-sell sound effects in any way.

Besides that, if you would like to include sound effects in a mobile or web app where your end users can control playback of the sound (e.g. soundboard, nature/relaxation app, ringtones, etc.), you will need to obtain a Custom Application License (CAL).

If you’re interested in a CAL please contact us at [email protected], or 615-864-4616.

Yes, but depending on how sounds will be incorporated in the experience of the app, you may require a Custom Application License.

Please contact us at [email protected], or 615-864-4616 to make sure you get the right license.
