I just need the song for a Youtube video. What license should I buy?
For any Youtube video, a ‘Standard‘ license will do. That is the cheapest license ($19) and you can use it in one video. For example, if you make two videos with the same song, you will have to purchase two licenses. Don’t worry because Youtube is not going to give you any warning or strike on your account, we have cleared our music there.
Why is your music NOT Creative Commons?
Because the Creative Commons licenses have many regulations and mostly they cannot be used for professional projects without crediting the author. They don’t give complete peace of mind to those who want to use them in corporate videos or big advertisements and their quality is sometimes not up to the standards.
We wanted to offer you the best of the best, and that’s why we chose Royalty-Free.
Is there a way to choose the best music for my video?
Yes! There are a few basic rules that will help you a lot if you know them and make your life easier, you can read them in this article that we wrote.
I just need music for Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat...
For any social media channel, no matter how big your audience is, a basic ‘Standard‘ license will do ($19). Just keep in mind that one license is for one video or ad, if you make for example two videos with the same song you must purchase two licenses.
I need your music for a Television (TV) or Radio advertisement.
Then you should choose one of these licenses depending on the size of your estimated audience:
Music Broadcast (1 million) License: $ 38 – Up to 1 million audience size.
Music Broadcast (10 million) License: $ 152 – Up to 10 million audience size.
Music Broadcast & Film License: $ 304 – Unlimited audience size.

Do you have sound effects too?
We don’t but we wrote for you this amazing article about sound effects explaining where you can find them, both free and paid.
What’s the difference between royalty-free music, non copyrighted music and Creative Commons music?
That is a long answer (but a very interesting one) so we wrote a full article about it. You can read it here: What is royalty-free music?
Why Royalty-Free music is so expensive?
$19 for a standard license sounds right for us.
You pay this only once, not every time your video/advertisement is shown. So, if you compare it with a single song on iTunes for example, that costs $0.99, it seems expensive, but this comparison has no sense because while that song is just for listening yourself, the royalty-free song is going to be used in another end product that can reach millions of people and (even) make money.
So, royalty-free music is not an end product, just a piece of another bigger one.
How much business software costs? Or footage? Or a premium WordPress theme?
You can compare the license prices to those products.
Even the most expensive license that we offer ($304) is really cheap when you think about it: you can use the music in a TV advertisement or a big movie!… while hiring a composer or a band will have cost you thousands of dollars.
Prices of royalty-free music are low because of scalability: the Internet has allowed us, musicians, to storage and distribute easily any song to thousands of potential buyers and sell many licenses for a single unit (song). If everyone knew the work that’s behind it, they will say that is really cheap.
Is there an easy way to know how much I have to pay?
Yes, we took the time of designing this amazing form that will guide you through some questions about your project and, within 2 minutes, you will know what license you must purchase.
