While it is always our goal to make the process of procuring songs and securing licenses as easy as possible, we realize that our customers may still have questions from time to time. If you haven’t found the answers you’re looking for in the FAQs below, please contact us and we’ll get back to you within 24 hours.

Q: Where else can I purchase Paramusical audio content?

A: Nowhere else, actually. All of the royalty-free music tracks you will find on our website have been created exclusively by our family of professional composers and musicians—this includes all original and adapted recordings.

Q: What type of tracks are available on your site?

A: There are essentially three different types of music tracks you may find on our website, each aiming to serve different production purposes.
1. A full track has a beginning, middle, and end and can last anywhere from a minute up to ten minutes in length.
2. A music loop is a track that has no end. In other words, the music loops back around to the beginning before it has a chance to stop.
3. A short clip is a brief excerpt of music, typically meant for TV, radio, or online spots and has a duration of 15, 30, or 60 seconds.

Q: How can I use the music I’ve purchased from Paramusical?

A: When you purchase royalty-free music from our website, what you have really purchased is the license (and rights) to use the music track for your own personal or professional needs. (See more on that below.)

 

The following restrictions apply to free music tracks, purchased music, as well as watermarked previews:
  • You cannot sell, transfer, trade, share, or give our music away (by any means) to another party.
  • You cannot claim ownership of the music you’ve purchased nor can you market it as your own, even if you’ve added your own instrumentation or vocals to it.
  • If you use the music in the background of a product (like an audiobook, self-help guide, etc.), you may include your own voiceover so long as you do not market the music as your own.
  • You will need to purchase different license types based on how much revenue you plan generate from the production which includes the music. Make sure to review our licensing options carefully before purchase.

 

If you have any further questions on limitations in using Paramusical audio content, please visit the License page above.

Q: Once I pay for the music, do I own the rights to it?

A: No. All rights to the royalty-free music (and custom music) you purchase from Paramusical belong to the original composer. The purchase you’ve made is for a music license, which will grant you the rights to use the track according to the licensing agreement.

Q: Does Paramusical provide all necessary legal documentation?

A: Yes. At checkout, we will issue you a final license that you can use as legal proof of the sale agreement between you and the seller (the composer of the music).

Q: Do I need to sign up before making a purchase?

A: Yes. In order to provide you with the legal documentation and proof of rights to the music you’ve licensed, we require that all customers create an account with us.

 

We respect the privacy of our customers and want to ensure that you have a secure way to shop for and purchase royalty-free music. Any information we obtain from our customers—payment information, personal contact information, or otherwise—will never be shared with anyone else and will only be used by Paramusical to contact customers who have granted us permission to do so.

Q: Which file formats are your music tracks delivered in?

A: You can download most music on our website in the file format of your choice: MP3, WAV, or AIFF. While compressed MP3s will work fine for online projects, most of our customers find that the higher quality WAV format is more suitable for TV, movie, and radio production.

 

Please note that music loops are currently only available in WAV format.

Q: What forms of payment do you accept?

A: We accept all major credit cards as well as PayPal. All purchases will be processed through our secure payment gateway.

Q: I’ve completed my purchase. Where do I find my music?

A: Within a few minutes of purchase, you should receive an email from Paramusical that includes details of your purchase along with a link for download.

Q: I downloaded my track, so why does it still have the Paramusical voiceover?

A: If you’ve completed the music licensing agreement and purchase, then you should have received an email from us with a clean copy to download. Because the preview file and purchased music file have the same name, you may have accidentally opened the preview track with the watermark. Delete the preview file and then attempt to download your music from the confirmation email again.

Q: I just checked my credit card statement and found an additional fee for the license I purchased. What is this for?

A: The only fees you receive from Paramusical are the ones which we have outlined in your music licensing agreement. Any additional charges you find on your credit card statement most likely come from your bank’s foreign transaction fee. Please contact them if you should have any questions regarding these additional charges.

Q: What is the refund process?

A: Unless there is a copyright dispute or infringement claim, Paramusical cannot offer any refunds at this time. If you believe there is a copyright issue, please contact us immediately.

Q: Do I need to submit a cue sheet for Paramusical music tracks?

A: When music appears in a publicly broadcasted production, the producer is responsible for submitting a cue sheet to the relevant Performing Rights Organization so the artists behind the music may receive royalty payments for their work.
