NO! Our music is meant to be used for multimedia projects such as videos and web applications. For both the free license and the pro licenses, it is forbidden to make a song, a remix and/or to use our music for music production.
Due to lack of time we usually don't accept to compose original music unless it is a very interesting project.
Bensound.com is now accepting Artist submission. To apply send us a link to listen to your music. Due to the volume of submission we will get in touch with you only if you are accepted.
If you do not want to credit Bensound.com or if you want to support this website you can buy a license on the track pages (click on the track picture).
Examples of credits: "Music: http://www.bensound.com/royalty-free-music"
For Online videos (Youtube, Vimeo,...) I prefer credits in the video description.
You can adapt the music for your project by editing the length or changing the sound. However you can not make a song, a re-mix or produce your own music with our music.
The no derivative "NoDerivs" mention to the creative commons license is to keep people from making their own music with ours (adding lyrics, remix,...). This mention does not apply for using the music in videos and multimedia projects.
If you produce your own videos: Yes.
If you produce videos for clients then you must buy a license for each client.
Yes, during checkout, in the "Payment Method" tab you can specify the license holder in the "Licensee" input.
No, credits are optional if you buy a Pro License.
Subscribing allow you to have access to our entire library during one year in both mp3 and wav format. For each track you will get a license certificate that authorize you to use the tracks without credits.
Note: You will have access to all the track listed included the ones with the blue button. But you won't get hidden tracks that are not listed on Bensound.com
Once the subscription purchased you will be able to download the files and the certificates individually for each track by browsing into the music categories.
You can download all the tracks and license certificates during one year of the subscription period but the licenses for the tracks are valid forever. That means that even after the end of the subscription period you can use the downloaded tracks forever.
We accept only payments by cards or Paypal.
We don't have control over the payment process, if you card is refused then try with another card or pay with a Paypal account.
If you choose the payment by Card the transaction will appears on your statement as "Bensound Music" or "Bens. Music".
No, you will need to use a computer.
Youtube & Facebook use a recognition software that scans the music in your video to see if you used copyrighted material. We do not register our tracks in this system so if you have a claim it is whether a "false positive" (the software is wrong) or that someone try to steal our music.
