WHAT AM I EXACTLY BUYING ?
When you buy a Frequency Sounds library you are NOT obtaining OWNERSHIP of the sounds, you are in fact purchasing a LICENSE to use the sounds within your musical compositions, whether or not your compositions are released commercially.
The license is non-transferable, so if you are using an illegal copy of the product, you are not authorised to use the sounds.
The original producer of the sounds will always remain the OWNER of the sounds.
HOW CAN I USE THE SOUNDS ?
You may use the sounds in combination with other sounds within your musical compositions.
You may release such compositions commercially without payment of any further fees or royalties for such usage.
For example, if you are the original purchaser of Essential Deep House Piano's and you used sounds from it to create the soundtrack of a television commercial, simply by combining a drum loop sample with a guitar loop sample, and the TV advert was broadcast hundreds of times, you would keep all the royalties that the advert earns you, because you already purchased a private license to use the sounds commercially.
You cannot use the sounds in isolation (i.e. when not within musical compositions) as part of a commercially released project - for instance you cannot use the sounds to make another sample product.
Please do not use our product demos as part of your track as they can often contain elements of other libraries and are therefore excluded for use as part of a pack purchase.
WHO ELSE CAN USE THE SOUNDS THAT I HAVE PURCHASED ?
Only the ORIGINAL PURCHASER of the product has the right to use the sounds commercially.
This means that you CANNOT SELL or give the sounds to anyone else.
If you do, and they use the sounds within a commercial release, they will have to pay royalties to Frequency Sounds for using the sounds.
I JUST MADE A NEW RECORD AND IM IN THE TOP 10, DO I OWE YOU ROYALTIES ?
No as long as you have purchased yourself the product from Frequency Sounds, it means that you have a licence and that the included sounds and samples in your package are royalty free for you to use.
However; if you obtained your sounds illegally then you will be in violation of copyright and might risk being taken to court and risk penalties and severe fines.
