What is royalty-free?
It means the music is free from paying royalties. You download and you use and you don’t have to pay anything.
I don’t have to pay anything?
You can use the download button to download the mp3 and use it in any creative project you like for free.
C’mon you must want something?
OK, the mp3 is shared under a Creative Commons license, but all I want is a little attribution back to this site.
This doesn’t feel right, I want to give you something, what can I do?
Alright, if you insist. I accept with much, much gratitude any donation here.
I can’t give you an attribution, what can I do?
Well, you could refuse to give attribution and hope I don’t find out. If I do find out, I’ll hit you with the full force of my attorney David Lee… or you could consider buying a regular licence.
What is a regular license?
It’s like a driving license but instead of allowing you to drive anywhere, this allows you to use the music in any creative project without giving attribution. You can get the regular license using the button on the page of each piece of music. You’ll also get a high-quality Wav file for your money too.
How much does the regular license cost?
For short pieces, it is $20 and for longer pieces $30.
How long does the license last?
Forever… as long as either of us doesn’t do anything that makes the license invalid.
What could make the license invalid?
I’m not quite sure and to be honest I can’t think of anything. But I thought I should at least acknowledge it is possible.
I can’t find any music that fits my needs, do you take commissions?
Oh yes, baby. You ask and I’ll create something that fits you like a glove, musically speaking of course.
How can I ask for a commission?
Have a look at this page. You’ll find more information and contact details.
How much would a commission cost?
It all depends on how much music you require and if you want or require a non-standard license. It would be unfair of me to make a suggestion without knowing what you require. However, it will be a fixed fee cost and be payable in two instalments, one on the agreement and one on completion and delivery.
How often do you add new music to the site?
I’m always making music apart from when I am eating, sleeping and doing other stuff. This means that I usually add music quite often. There, how vague is that? Sorry, these are your questions, I shouldn’t be asking them, forget that last one. If you want to stay up to date when new music is added then you can sign-up for the newsletter (in the sidebar or here), follow us on twitter or subscribe to our RSS feed.
Is that your natural hair colour?
Now you’re just being silly.
Why do you sometimes call it a license and other times licence?
Don’t ask, have you any idea how difficult it is to write copy for an international audience? That’s rhetorical. Believe me, I have lost track who I am trying to write for. UK and US English have some subtle differences.
I have a question not answered above!
