Who should make use of WOW Subscription?

 

01. YouTubers: Gaming / VTubers ➕

 

music and sound effects subscription for Vtubers
You might be looking for music and sound effects if you are a gaming YouTuber creating Let's Play Videos, Live Streams of Video Games, Game Reviews, Tutorials, Walkthroughs, and even Upcoming Game Previews. Naturally, you will need music and sound effects to liven up your videos! For example, you want to make your viewers laugh at that scary game or boost the scariness of the horror game. In addition, as some of these games generally have a more ambient-like soundtrack, you likely want to add something to increase the intensity of the mood.

So look no further for some light comedy music, cute (kawaii), chill, yet upbeat music tracks, 8-bit genre music tracks, horror music tracks, and generally chill music tracks to get the right mood. Especially if you create content regularly, a subscription might be a better choice in the long run than a per-pay track.

 

All our music tracks and sound effects are YouTube safe, royalty-free, copyright-safe and DMCA-free, meaning you don't have to worry about Content ID claims, copyright strikes or getting your audio muted! If you wish to get 70% off the Personal Plan by giving credit to us, do check out the Creator Program!

Subscription FAQ

 

What happens if I cancel or don't renew my subscription? Do I need to take my projects down?

No, your projects are yours to use forever. The licenses for projects created under any subscription plan are perpetual, and they can never expire even if you cancel or don't renew your subscription. So you can keep monetizing and publishing your projects again and again.

 

Can I cancel whenever? And how does it work?

Yes! Any subscription can be canceled at any time. Please email us or use the cancellation feature in your account to cancel your subscription. If you forget to cancel your subscription and have yet to download any audio tracks, we offer a full refund within 14 days of the transaction. Learn more about how the subscription plan works and who should get our subscription plans.

 

After canceling my subscription, can I continue using the music or sound effects tracks?

While your subscription plan is active, you can create and publish an unlimited number of projects. Any new projects won't be covered when your subscription ends. As long as you have a paid subscription with WOW Sound, you are able to download audio tracks, utilize them in new projects, and publish them.

If you wish to use our audio tracks in any new projects after canceling your subscription, you must restart your subscription and download the audio track again. Or you could also license the audio track via the pay-per-track option.

 

Can I use WOW Sound content for my podcast?

Yes!‍ Music may be used for podcasts! Music and sound effects can be downloaded once and used as many times as you like throughout your active subscription. If your subscription expires, you no longer have the right to use downloaded content in future podcast episodes.

 

What are the restrictions on the Personal Subscription plan?

The Personal plan is for personal use only. You may not create videos, podcasts or other uses of the licensed music or sound effects for a third party, meaning, the videos may not be used to promote a business, product or service. In addition, the videos or podcasts may not be made available for sale or distribution and may not be sponsored.

 

Which plan allows me to license music for videos I am making for a client?

You must use the Business plan. The Personal plan is for personal use only.

 

I need to make a video for both online and broadcast. May I use the Business Subscription plan for music for my video?

No. WOW Sound's subscription plans are for games, social media, and internet use only, not including paid video streaming platforms (Netflix, Hulu, Disney +, etc.). For broadcast licenses, please purchase Legendary Music License.

 

Is the whole catalog under the subscription plan?

Yes! All music tracks and sound effects are included in all the subscription plan.

 

What is a Creator Program?

Our Creator Program offers a 70% discount off our Subscription Plans (Personal and Business) to content creators who credit with a link to our website on every video, video game, project, apps or post they created using our library.

 

How many audio tracks can I download?

With a Personal Plan or a Creator Program Plan, you can download up to 999 audio tracks per month.
For a Business Plan, you can download up to 2499 tracks per month.

This includes both music and sound effects, including variations. We believe this amount of audio track is reasonable and sufficient for your projects whether you are a solo creator or in a team.

We understand it's easier to download and preview the sounds offline, but we only allow online previews at the moment. We even removed the watermark on the tracks, as most libraries have so that you can preview the original track. If you need help finding fitting music and sound effects for your project, send us gameplay videos, and we can assist you.
