Royalty Free Music Unique To Your Project - Every Time

SmartSound Royalty Free Music License Info

Royalty Free Music purchased from the SmartSound web site is licensed for One Seat of Sonicfire Pro software per user. (For Quicktracks Annual licenses click here). For use with the Sonicfire Pro software a single user may use music purchased on up to 2 different computers provided they are the sole user of those computers. If you have multiple users using Sonicfire Pro software, please view our Multiple Seat Discounts for pricing. Our Network license permits multiple users to share the music using the single user pricing.

SmartSound has three license options for our individual tracks; Standard License, Extended License and Widest License. To see a chart comparing the different licenses, please click here.

All albums, album packs and singles packs are offered using the Extended License. The Standard License is not available for these options. Should you be interested in upgrading any individual track from an album you own or a pack you’ve purchased to the Widest License, you can obtain a Widest License for that track for $149.99.

Music purchased from within a 3rd party SmartSound integration (such as Cyberlink PowerDirector or Corel VideoStudio Pro) after Oct. 7, 2014, comes with the SmartSound Extended Commercial License.

Producers, editors and media creators working in and from Europe may be subject to different requirements for the use of music in their countries. Performance Rights Organizations (PROs) in Europe have different regulations regarding the collection of royalties than do their American and Canadian counterparts and are not under our control. For American and Canadian producers who are offering films and media for exhibit or sale in Europe most PROs there do not treat the music any differently than in the US and there are rarely any issues. If an issue does arise we can supply you with documentation indicating your valid use and license. Again, this is extremely rare as our customers rarely report any problems at all.

For producers, editors, media creators, etc. working from and in European countries other requirements and regulations may apply. Please see our list of SmartSound GEMA-free music. This is music specifically cleared for use by foreign media creators in these territories. Again, this applies only to media creators from those foreign countries.

We also offer an Annual subscription, which uses our Cloud-based Quicktracks technology. The Annual subscription license is similar to, but has a few differences from, our Extended License. Please see the Quicktracks Annual License for more information.

If you are an indie film maker focused on making a particular film, we have the best way in the business to create a custom music soundtrack for your film, with all the rights you need: Please see our Indie Film License for more information. This is also the license you will want to consider if you need to purchase multiple tracks at the Widest License.
