FAQ

You can find most answers to questions about our Music Licensing services in this page. You can also contact us at info@almalibrestudios.com with further questions. 

Royalty-Free does not imply that the production music that you are purchasing is free. What it means it that the production music recordings that you are licensing with us are free of any future royalties generated by the sale and distribution of your production to the music makers, in this case Almalibrestudios.com. In other words, there are no extra hidden fees or royalties that will be owed to Almalibrestudios.com once your production starts to generate income.

All of the production music available for licensing at Almalibrestudios.com is royalty-free.

No. This is strictly prohibited. The music available for licensing at Almalibrestudios.com falls under the category of Production Music which is strictly intended to be used as background music only. It is licensed only for syncronization purposes in multimedia projects such as for TV broadcasts, Games, Films, Documentaries, Corporate Videos, etc.

You are allowed, however, to record your own voice or add an instrument to the music as long as it is part of a narrative nature where the music would serve the purpose of background music only and not an actual song (ie, audiobooks, self-therapy guidance, training audio, etc).

Yes, you may alter the music any way that you see fit for your own project including remixing or re-arranging parts of the song. However the copyright and publishing of the music will always belong to Almalibrestudios.com.

Standard (Non-Exclusive) License Agreement

The short of it:
With a Standard License you can use the song for any non-commercial project as long as you do not resell, repack or redistribute the song. We retain the copyright and publishing rights as well as the right to license the same music to other clients.

Detailed description:
A Standard (Non-Exclusive) License is an agreement that grants you the right to purchase music produced at Almalibrestudios.com for non-commerial use without having to pay any royalties to the music creators. You may use the music in combination with other music or sounds in music production. However, Almalibrestudios.com retains the authoring, publishing and composition rights to the music. In other words, when you purchase a song with a Standard (Non-Exclusive) License you are “leasing” the right to use the music in your productions.

You may not however, under any circumstances, resell the music as royalty-free stock music, redistribute or re-package the music. You may not sell or market the music as your own even if you have re-arranged or remixed it, added your voice or other intstruments to the music. You also may not sing or play an instrument over the music and sell or distribute it as part of your album or single. This is strictly “Production Music” intended for use as background music only.

You may sell up to 1,000 units until you need to obtain a Premium License Agreement. Furthermore, a Standard License agreement gives Almalibrestudios.com the right to license the same song to other Artists and Producers.

Exclusive License Agreement

The short of it:
An Exclusive License Agreement is exactly the same as a Premium License in every way. In addition to the benefits of a Premium License you also obtain all of the separated tracks or “stems” that make up the composition you are licensing. Once you purchase an Exclusive license the music that you licensed gets removed from our database and becomes unavailable to be licensed to anyone else again. Reselling, repacking or redistributing any of the individual tracks is strictly prohibited.

  • A pdf file of the Exclusive Licensing Agreement from Almalibrestudios.com for your records.


* The separated tracks are all recorded starting at bar 1 of the mix this way they match up perfectly with each other once you import them onto your Digital Audio Workstation beginning at bar 1.
