Unlimited Usage, Unlimited Productions. Fully Flexible Pricing.

PSE libraries are designed to deliver a lifetime of value with simple licensing, flexible pricing and free annual updates. PSE Libraries are licensed, not sold to you. Your payment gives you the license to use our libraries royalty-free in any productions you create. You own what you create with our sound effects. Like software, PSE libraries are licensed and priced based on the number of users you have. In either scenario, we’ll give you the choice between buyout or annual pricing. Learn more about single user, multi-user (2+) licensing and related pricing below:

  • 1 user to 1000’s

    We’ll cover you for unlimited usage. 100% royalty-free.

  • Free Annual Updates

    Your PSE library stays fresh and continually expands.

  • Buyout or Annual Pricing

    Choose the option that best suits your needs and budget.

Some of our Clients

Single User

Single users get our Individual End User License Agreement (IEULA). Your IEULA will cover your royalty-free PSE library usage as an individual, and guarantee lifetime rights to anything you create with our sound effects.

By default, any purchase through the PSE website comes with a one-user perpetual license. For our two most in-demand general libraries (Hybrid Library, Master Library 2.0) we offer annual licensing 
and payment options.

If you represent 2 or more users, we will set you up with a Multi-User License Agreement (MULA). Your MULA will include our standard unlimited royalty-free usage and customized to include:

  • – The # users you have
  • – Commercial vs non-commercial (academic)
  • – Buyout vs. annual payment terms.

We make it simple, fast and flexible – you can add or subtract users as your organization changes. Soundminer Server? Shared Storage? No problem.
