Unfortunately, many platforms offering Royalty Free Audio don’t see things our way. They believe the number of views your video gets should affect how much you are paying. You worked hard to create your content so why should you be at risk if you happen to go viral? Creators shouldn’t worry about how crossing viewership thresholds will affect their license. We want our creators to be successful and to never worry about acquiring a new license. If your video does go viral, send it to us! We would love to check it out!

Simply put, we believe creators should be free to create. Our goal is to empower creators by allowing them to focus on what they do best. At soundful.com, you’ll never need to worry that the success of your project will ever jeopardize your ability to use our music or worry about purchasing a new license if you pass a certain threshold.  

Licensing – Exclusive

TLDR: $99 = Exclusive License. It’s YOURS. Once you purchase the track no one else will be able to purchase it.

What if royalty free is not enough? If you really want to stand out as a content creator, having exclusive music can make all the difference. We offer an entire library of audio that is sold only once. When a piece of audio is purchased from this library, it belongs to you exclusively and will never be reuploaded or sold to another party. We’ve even gone one step further and provide all of the stems so you can edit, chop and remix the audio to fit your project.

With an exclusive license, you will own a piece of audio that will be unique to you and your project. As a filmmaker, you probably don’t want to hear the soundtrack of your film out in the ethos, but hiring someone to score your film is out of budget for most. With Soundful.com’s exclusive library, you can purchase tracks to score your film at a fraction of the price and the confidence that you can bring unique music to your project that will not be found anywhere else.

If you are a YouTuber, this means an exclusive intro song to catch the viewer’s attention. For twitch streamers, have a custom playlist for your viewers to listen to.

What is Royalty Free Music?

TLDR: Royalty Free Music is audio you can use in your projects without the need to pay royalties and without the fear of your project being flagged for copyright.

Are you a content creator? If you’ve ever been a part of a creative project, then you’ve probably run into the need for audio that can be used without your content being flagged for copyright. Unfortunately, the process of finding quality royalty free music has long been difficult with free libraries being, well, full of music you don’t want to use and premium libraries being expensive with complicated licensing agreements.

The difficulty of this process has left many content creators no choice but to risk using audio that may contain copyright. This, of course, is highly risky with all of the big platforms deploying artificial intelligence to seek out and punish copyright violations. Technology has made creating and sharing content easier than ever, but the music industry has fought aggressively to keep music licensing expensive and difficult. We’ve aimed to fix that by using our technology to provide high-quality audio for your projects without the need for complicated licensing. Simply put, our extensive library and high-quality audio is perfect for your videos, movies, presentations and every other project you are working on. Don’t take the risk of putting in the long hours only to have your content pulled or your channel put in jeopardy.

How can I select the right song for my project?

You can select a piece of audio based on a number of filters such as the mood, genre, bpm or key. We recommend checking our post HERE to help select a track to fit the mood you wish to convey in your project.

No. We’re just here to help you find great music, not take credit. We do not require you to credit us on your project.

Can I Use Your Music on YouTube?

Yes! You can use the music found on our platform for YouTube and every other streaming platform.

Can I Remix Your Music?

With an Exclusive License, you are able to remix and edit the track however you wish. With a Royalty-Free license, you are not allowed to remix, register or claim the music as your own.

Should I Worry About Public Performance Rights (PROS)?

Regardless of whether you plan to use the audio for TV/Film/Radio/Commercials, you will not need to pay performance royalties. All of our music is generated using Artificial Intelligence and therefore, is offered 100% royalty-free including for use commercially.

If I Purchase an Exclusive Track, Can I Add My Own Vocals?

Yes! With an Exclusive License, you are able to add your own vocals, guitar or any other elements you wish over the track and release the track on your album.

What Type of File Will I Receive with Purchase?

You will receive a high-quality, .WAV file with your purchase. If you need an .MP3 file instead, you can convert your .WAV using a number of free software such as iTunes or you can email us and we would be happy to help convert your .WAV to an .MP3.
