Solutions FAQs

What am I allowed to do with my sound effects license?

You’re allowed to create an unlimited number of synchronized productions, meaning you may couple sound effects with other elements (e.g. video, other sonic). You can edit, layer, process, warp, twist, and pulverize sounds to your heart’s desire.

Our standard license covers usage by one (1) User – if you have multiple people at your company or organization who will be working with the sound effects library, you must obtain a multi-user license.

For a more complete rundown of how licensing works, check out our Licensing Page, or contact us at licensing@prosoundeffects.com, or call 646.728.7728×10.

What CAN’T I do with my sound effects libraries?

You cannot re-sell sound effects in any way.

Besides that, if you would like to include sound effects in a mobile or web app where your end users can control playback of the sound (e.g. soundboard, nature/relaxation app, ringtones, etc.), you will need to obtain a Custom Application License (CAL).

If you’re interested in a CAL please contact us at licensing@prosoundeffects.com, or 646.728.7728×10.

What exactly is included in the “Updates” you offer?

“Pro Plus” and “Complete” Updates
In order to make sure your library stays fresh and growing, your CORE Pro Plus or CORE Complete license comes with all exclusive libraries that we release. (Ongoing for Annual Licenses, or 1-Year worth of updates for Perpetual Licenses)

PSE does reserve the right to include or exclude specialty libraries in the update program at its sole discretion.

Can I have a trial before committing to a license?

Absolutely. Typically we provide trial access via our web portal with every quote.

Can I use your sounds in my app?

Yes, but depending on how sounds will be incorporated in the experience of the app, you may require a Custom Application License.

Please contact us at licensing@prosoundeffects.com, or 646.706.7728 x10 to make sure you get the right license.

How do you define a "User"?

A “User” is any person at your company (employee or contractor) who will be working with the sound effects library. For schools, Users are counted as the students, faculty, and administrators by whom the sound effects are intended to be used.

If we go for an Annual License but choose not to renew at some point, what happens then?

Any finished work created during your valid license period is licensed in perpetuity. If you choose not to renew your license at any point, you must delete all raw audio files from your computers, servers, hard disks, etc., and you may not create any new work using the sound effects.

Can our legal department review your license agreement before we sign up?

Yes – once you’ve received a quote and you’re ready to move forward, your licensing rep will be happy to draft a custom license agreement for your legal team to review and revise as needed. Please let us know if this is a requirement for you.

Legal review only available with CORE Pro and above.

Which payment methods do you accept?

We accept bank transfer, check, credit card, or PayPal. POs and full vendor setup is welcome – please let us know what your purchasing requirements are.
