SIMPLE PLAIN ENGLISH RULES about using our sample libraries

Do I have to pay you any fees beyond the purchase price or royalties if I use these sounds in my compositions for a Film, TV show, Game or other recording?

NO - provided you use our sounds in the context of a musical composition and not as part of a library of sounds.

E.g. it's ok to score the end product. It's not ok to make a composing or player tool in the end product that uses our sounds individually as building blocks. It's not ok to provide our sounds exposed for other people to use in the construction of a recording.

Can my writing partner, colleagues or friends use these samples once I’ve licensed the library?

NO - every person that uses this library must buy a license. If you wish to buy a license for a site - such as a team of composers, or a music production house or library, you must contact us with details for a special license.

Note that these libraries are watermarked individually and can be traced.
