Watch below to find out what rights you need to clear when using music in films, videos or TV productions.
How can I search for music?
We’ve added a multitude of ways to find that perfect track. Click 'Search Music' at the top of the page to get started.
You can now use keywords or filters to find what you’re looking for. These will appear as tags above your search .
Our drop-down menus cover popular selections, but you can find even more options by clicking the ‘Show All’ button. To refine your search even further, click on ‘More filters’ to specify track duration and tempo.
When you’re listening to a track and want to see more from that artist, composer, or album, just click on the three dots next to the listing.
If you’re looking for music without vocals, we now offer the option to filter vocal and instrumental-only tracks and versions.
If you prefer, our former 'advanced search' is still accessible via a link in the footer, along with a list of all the albums and artists in our catalogue.
How do I download music I’ve purchased?
Once you have purchased a track you can log in to your online account and download it by following these steps:
- Go to your account page, and click on the ‘orders’ button
- Click on the view arrow on the right of the order you wish to download
- Choose either to download tracks individually by clicking on the WAV or MP3 icon, or all together by using the tickboxes
How can I download several files at a time?
To download all or several files at a time, check the boxes on the relevant tracks and then click on ‘download selected files as zip’ at the bottom of the list. There are select all/deselect all MP3 and select all/deselect all WAV buttons at the bottom to help.
WAV files are quite large – typically 30-40mb each – so it’s not ideal to zip more than three or four of these together at a time. Most broadband connections seem to have an undefined download limit, and in our experience attempting to download more than 200mb of data in one go will just result in a blank screen.
Can I only download the music file once?
No. Once you’ve paid for a sound file it stays in your account permanently and you can download as many times as you need.
How can I download music from a project?
If you’re a member and have access to projects, you can download music from them in two ways: One by one - by clicking the WAV or MP3 icon Packaged as a zip file - by selecting multiple files and using the file download format action from the drop down box at the bottom of the page.
How do I add music to a project?
Before you start, make sure you're logged in. Once you've found a track you like, click the Add to Project icon. You'll be asked whether you want to add the file to a new project or an existing one.
How do I share a project?
When creating a new project you can choose to only include yourself in the 'participants', or share the project with everyone in your company.
If you wish to share the project with specific people, simply click 'Edit Project Info' on the project sound file listing page, then select or deselect users.
You can also edit the project name and description here.
