Pricing and Licensing Information
The Hottest Source for Music in the Universe!

  Licensing Overview

You can use the tracks here for any kind of productions such as feature-length films, TV shows, documentaries, commercials for TV, radio and Internet, software apps, corporate uses, and much more. Our content works great for all types of creative and commercial productions, whether for broadcast or non-broadcast uses.

At AudioSparx, The Focus is on Quality
In business for 16 years now, AudioSparx is very successful at attracting music artists from all parts of the world. We currently have 814,000 music tracks online from over 8,025 top artists and composers, including many whose music is used for major Hollywood motion pictures, national TV commercials, and much more (see our Hollywood A-List). Every month, 50 to 100 new artists sign with the AudioSparx label, and thousands of new tracks are added to our library each month, too, guaranteeing a constant source of new and exciting music in every genre imaginable.

AudioSparx offers music from numerous winners of
Grammys, Emmys, International Tellys, ASCAP and BMI awards

AudioSparx is a Quality Leader
Part of the reason we are able to attract such top composers and artists to AudioSparx is that we allow them to set their own pricing, rather than dictating to them what their pricing will be.  Each artist or composer sets their own price for each of their music tracks.  This allows AudioSparx to attract many world-class artists and composers who's music is worth more than the prices charged by other web sites that utilize a one-price-fits-all approach.  Let's face it, all music is not created equally.  Some tracks and some artists are better than others.  Hence a one-price-fits-all strategy is a fundamentally wrong approach to take to accommodate the caliber of exceptionally talented artists and composers who sell here.

Our flexible pricing strategy results in the largest and
highest-quality commercial music resource in the world


Variant Music Pricing
Another compelling advantage of AudioSparx for our clients is that we utilize variant pricing for music tracks, where pricing for each track license varies based on how a client intends to use the track in their production.  The advantage this has is that for a project that is small in scope, or local-use only, or short-term use only, the music is priced lower than for a project which has a larger scope or that has a long-term need for the music, or which is broadcast or distributed widely.

As you add a music track to your shopping cart, you choose the license type you need, and then configure the parameters of the license.   The price fluctuates up or down from the listed "Base Price" depending on which license you select and the license parameters you select.  Here is a pricing example for the same track, with the same type of license (e.g. an Internet Commercial license), but for different license term periods:

License Type Base Price Term Period Price Range
Internet Commercial Use $44.95 One Week $34.95
Internet Commercial Use $44.95 One Month $44.95
Internet Commercial Use $44.95 One Year $64.95
Internet Commercial Use $44.95 Perpetuity (i.e. forever!) $99.95

Consequently, you will find that our music pricing varies widely based on which specific track you select, which media you want to use it for, and the media-specific license parameters you configure.  For short-term or local uses you might pay in the range of $10 to $50 dollars, whereas for a significant or long-term use for a track you can expect to pay between $100 and $1000 or more, depending on which artist's track it is, the duration of the track, the complexity of the track and various other factors.  Remember, AudioSparx offers music from the top composers in the commercial music industry - our focus is on QUALITY, not cheap music!

Music Discount Requests
We understand here at AudioSparx that each project is different from the next.  There may be circumstances that our online pricing system just does not take into account.  Consequently, we are always open to requests for discounted pricing.  If there are circumstances for your company, situation, project or intended use that warrants a lower price, we can very likely work out a favorable discount for you.  We hate to lose business, and we love to wheel and deal, so please don't hesitate to submit a discount request and we will try to work it out for you.  If we can't exactly match your discount request, we will often make a counter-offer. 

To request a discount, add any music track to your shopping cart and as you do so, configure the desired license and when the price is displayed for you, click the on-screen option to send us a discount request.  Let us know why you think a discount is in order and we'll be happy to review it for you and try to work it out for you.


MusicPacks and SoundPacks Are a Great Value
Many of the composers and artists that sell music and sound effects at AudioSparx create "MusicPacks" and "SoundPacks" of their content.  The MusicPacks and SoundPacks they create give you a great way to purchase multiple tracks at once at a substantial discount on a per-track basis.  You will typically enjoy a discount of at least 30% on a per-track basis, or in some cases much more.  Some of our composers include over 100 music tracks or sound effects in each pack, giving you a super savings for what amounts to purchasing a "mini-library" of new tracks for your production work!

Pricing for Sound Effects and Beats 'n Loops
Our site has over 292,000 sound effects and instrument sample files for composers.  Pricing for each track of this type generally varies between $1 and around $15+, depending on the duration, complexity, rarity, ease of production, and various other factors.  To purchase individual sound effects, register online here and then add the tracks you want to your shopping cart, checkout, make payment, then download the tracks.

Download Formats
Every track you purchase here can be downloaded in the following file formats:

  • WAV (choose either 16bit 44.1Khz or 24bit 48Khz)
  • MP3 (choose either 320Kbps, 192kpbs or 128kbps)
  • AIFF
  • WMA
  • Various other file formats supported as well or we can create a custom encoding if you need something specific
