FAQ Version:


What types of projects am I allowed to use these sounds in?

  • You may use the sounds in any project, commercial and non-commercial (films, television, video games, adverts, music, podcasts, stage productions, etc.) except in the creation of further commercial sound libraries, stock materials or products where the sound files can be accessed or are shared.

Can I create backup copies of this sound library?

  • You can create up to two backup copies of the sound library, but only to physical storage devices (e.g. USB stick). This excludes online cloud storage.


Do I have to credit the sound in the credits list of my project?

  • Only if you want to! I do encourage you to drop me a message if you use the library in a project so I can help spread awareness of your work.

Do I have to pay any royalties if I use these sounds in commercial projects?

  • Nope! By purchasing any of these sound libraries or sound effects you are granted a royalty-free license without any further financial payment required.

Can I give these sounds to someone else?

  • Unfortunately not! You are not allowed to give any of the purchased sounds to another person.


Can I upload these sounds to a website, such as

  • Again, I'm afraid not! You cannot upload the raw sounds to another website unless they have been used in combination with other media of some sort (i.e. a film, part of a song, a podcast, and all other similar examples).

I'm a company / school - how can I purchase a multi-seat license?

  • That's not a problem! - To allow the sounds to be used by more than one person, please contact me for special multi-seat license rates with the name of your company / school, the number of seats / users required, and the library / libraries you are interested in.

I have another question, where can I ask?

  • Feel free to contact me here for any further questions!
