Where is the download link after making a purchase?
A download link with your purchased order will be sent to your email. Alternatively, you could also log in to your account to download the files under 'Order History'. If you're just downloading a few tracks, you'll get your download email in a few minutes. If you're downloading hundreds of tracks, it can take a while! 1GB worth of tracks takes about 2 minutes to compress!
Your licensed tracks are available to download for 2 weeks following your purchase. You can log into your account from any computer or device to download your licensed tracks during this time. Note that 1GB takes about 15 minutes to download with a 2.4G Wi-Fi.
If you do not receive the download instructions by e-mail, please check your "Spam' or "Junk" folder. The email should be in your inbox within a few minutes. If you have not received a message with a download link within 30 minutes of your purchase, please . We will rectify the situation as quickly as possible.
What type of file format will the music and sound effects be sent to me?
You can choose to download the files in .wav or .mp3 format. Our .wav files are delivered in stereo (uncompressed lossless audio) in either 44.1Khz or 48kHz and 16-bit or 24-bit.
Will the WOW Sound watermark still be present after I purchase a license?
No. The "WOW Sound" voiceover is only present in the audio preview on Soundcloud. After you purchase a license, you will be able to download a clean copy.
My account doesn't exist on your site, and download links from past purchases don't work either.
We launched our revamped site on a new platform on 8th April 2022, so the accounts and past purchases are not transferable even if you create a new account on our current site :(
But fret not; we have a record of all past purchases. If you need files from your past purchases, simply email us at [email protected] with your email address or the invoice number, and we will send you the files via WeTransfer.
Am I allowed to modify the content of my purchases?
Yes you may, but the copyright still belongs to WOW Sound. As such, copying, redistribution and resale of the modified content is not allowed.
I bought music under the Common License for my game, can I use the music for my game's trailer too?
Yes, you can! We consider the game trailer as part of the same product. For music licensed under the Rare License or Legendary, you can use the music in unlimited projects.
Can I use your music and sound effects in a stand-alone music track or perform it?
No, you may not use music in both stand-alone music tracks and for performance as our music is available to license for synchronization in media productions (websites, videos, DVDs, TV broadcasts, films, games, etc.) as background music.
Example: Adding lyrics or editing our music into to an audio track and selling it on iTunes or performing it is a copyright infringement.
However, you can use our sound effects in a music track or a performance.
How do you define '1 Project'?
One project refers to one game/film/online series(max 26 episodes). You can use the assets multiple times in one project.
Example: One music/sound effect can be used in-game and game trailer as long as it is limited to that one game. Same for a short film, the purchased music/sound effect can be used in the film/series and its trailer.
What do you mean by '1 user'?
'1 user' means we grant one user the right to use our Sound libraries. It grants one user the right to use the Sound Libraries or Bundles on one workstation at a time, although the Licensee is permitted to make and keep backup copies of the Sound Libraries or Bundles on other storage devices.
No, you do not own the music you purchase. The copyright to the music remains the property of WOW Sound/the composer. Purchasing a license only allows you to use the music to sync to your projects and purposes in accordance with the license agreement.
Can I purchase music on behalf of my client as I am a freelancer/agency?
Yes, you can, the license will then belong to your client and the license terms still apply depending on the license purchased.
Can I use your music or sound effects as an element of a logo or branding?
Are there restrictions on how I use music and sound effects from WOW Sound?
Do I need to fill in a cue sheet?
