The audio loops and audio samples from www.soundtrackloops.com (and Soundtrack Loops™) remain the property of its manufacturer Soundtrack Loops™ (Collectively, “Licensor”) and are licensed to you as the original end-user (“Licensee”) a single individual user, on a non-exclusive basis, for use subject to the provisions below. For commercial and multi-user licenses please contact us for more details and pricing.
A common answer to most questions is as follows:
Yes you can use them as sound effects isolated in a a video game or video BUT the sounds can not be the main focus. We don’t want the sound itself to be the focus of the product and we don’t want our sounds as part of a set of open ended creative assets that will be sold as a product. Within a video game is ideal or within a song or within a film is all ideal. So for example you can’t upload one of our sounds to Youtube with some sort of video or static image stating hey here’s a sound effect or check out this sound. You can however use them as sound effects in a video game or in a video where the sound is part of the action or story.
Ultimately we don’t want people thinking they can turn our sound effects into another product that would be sold as creative assets like for example if you had some stock videos and a template you were giving away or selling and it also included our sounds as part of the package. We also don’t want people uploading our sounds to Youtube thinking they can monetize them in some way.
The rule here is to create something new using our sounds without trying to find some way to make money off our sounds as they stand. See licensing terms below.
(A) The sounds in a category of “Loops and Samples (sounds)”:

If for some unexplainable reason Youtube content ID flags your content containing our sounds we can have your page added to the “allow list “which means you can publish your song and monetize it BUT if your arrangement is too close to the original you may run into a snag as other users will be using the same loops and it is possible they will try to claim ownership but don’t worry we have a direct contact at AdRev and can get it sorted typically within 24 hours. Youtube content ID has created many problems for content creators. This is why it is important to alter our loops and arrangements and change them to make them your own.

(B) The sounds in a category of “Demo Songs”:
Demo songs, songs composed by our team to display a demonstration of sounds in a sound pack. They remain intellectual property of Soundtrack Loops (manufacture/composer). These exact arrangements are not available for use in other works and a license for Soundtrack Loops™ demo songs is not available to the end user. The loops and samples agreement does not apply to the demo songs found on the Soundtrack Loops™ site and on Soundtrack Loops™ distributor sites. Soundtrack Loops demo songs are arrangements composed to demonstrate sounds from a single sound pack and they are not available to you to use as an edited segment or as a whole. The end user may NOT sell, copy, or distribute the Soundtrack Loops™ demo songs. You may however use our loops and samples to create your own original arrangements as this is the sole purpose of our products. You may use your new arrangements in video games, commercial music releases, movie scores, advertisements, and remixes.
