LICENSING

Can I use your sounds in my music?

Yes, our sounds are 100% royalty free and you are purchasing a license to use our products for commercial or non-commercial musical compositions, public performances, and other reasonable musical purposes without our prior permission. If you are interested in using our products to create commercial audio loops and audio stems, please read the next FAQ or refer to our EULA.

Can I use your product to create commercial loops?

Yes, but you need to purchase our Membership plan. Only under this specific circumstance you can use our products to create commercial loop collections and audio stems.

 

In general, the commercial loops and audio stems created with our products cannot allow to extract and/or reproduce the original single sounds (drums, one shots, single notes) included in our products. In this context, a fair use of our products is :

 

– to use a multi-sample patch to compose a melodic (basslines, synth solo..) loop or audio stem
– to use a drum kit to create an ensemble drum loop
– to use a some drum samples and a multi-sample instrument to create an audio stem

 

Under no circumstances you cannot use our products (in particular their included samples, multi-samples and presets) to create a sound pack or as a sound pack. The individual samples, drum kits, patches or audio loops included in the Products cannot be distributed, commercially or otherwise. Please, read our EULA for additional info.

I use your sounds in my studio. Can my clients use them?

Yes, you can use our products together with your clients, in your studio. Just keep in mind that our products cannot be electronically transfered to your clients and that all the sounds included in our products cannot leave your hard drive. Please, also remember that you can install and personally use our products on two devices only (e.g. one laptop, one work station).

What about your discontinued products?

Our discontinued products are always protected by law and their intellectual property remains at Cluster Sound. If you still have a discontinued product stored in your hard drive, you can continue to use it accordingly to our License Agreement.

What I can do with your free packs?

The sounds included in our free packs (demo packs / free packs) follow the same licensing criteria of our products. They can be used for commercial and non commercial music productions and, if you are a Member, for commercial loops and audio stems also. Please, refer to our EULA for more detailed info.

Can I share your sounds with my friends?

No. A right to use our products (and the included sounds) is granted only to you as a buyer and is NOT transferable. Our license expressly forbids to transfer all or any of the included sounds to any other user.

Are you affiliated with the brands you mention?

No, we are not affiliated with nor do we promote any of the brands or trademarks mentioned anywhere on this site.
