Wrong Licence and/or track after purchase

If you purchased a track and the licence or track emailed to you was wrong, please email us at and we will send you correct files. This rarely happens and apologize for any inconvenience and will get the correct file to you asap.

Can I view the site on a mobile Device?

Mobile: Yes in Desktop Mode
Tablet or iPad: Yes

For best experience, we do not recommend browsing our website via smart phone as the pages are not configured yet to universally display on smartphones, but tablets and iPads are 100% compatible. It is possible on a smart phone if you set your mobile browser settings to "Desktop Mode" which will display the site exactly as it would on a laptop or computer. Please remember to switch your phone back out of desktop mode after doing this to ensure your phone settings are back as they were.

Can I download a track on a Tablet or iPad?

Android: Yes, the file will usually be found in the "files" app or "File Manager" Apple: Unfortunately the answer keeps changing all the time. Previously Apple only allows music downloads (even from a website like ours) to be download via iTunes, but we found a while ago that if you download the track from our site and save the file to iCloud Drive you should be able to use the track on your device without having to go through the iTunes route.

Our search only requires one word for searches so please don't use sentences such as: music for my vlog or motivational advertisement intro Use one word keywords such as; happy inspirational corporate cat playful relaxing cute joyful horror

Yes, just a one-time initial purchase - not a subscription. The licence is valid forever and across multiple projects.
