PSE Licenses Give Unlimited Usage in Unlimited Productions.

We design our libraries to provide lifetime value with simple licenses that allow unlimited usage and creative freedom. You own what you make with PSE sound effects libraries – 100% royalty-free. Like software, our licenses are priced based on the number of users. All PSE libraries come with a 1-user lifetime license. If you have 2 or more users, we’ll set you up with a multi-user license. And you’ll get to choose from annual or buyout pricing options. Learn more about licensing and related pricing:

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) we offer annual licensing 
and payment options.

Multi-User

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.
