Silverman Sound wouldn’t exist without the support of the community, especially the generous patronage of these extremely awesome people:
Want to download all the mp3s at once? Of course you do – you get over 200 royalty free music tracks in one go. Save your clicking finger!
What is royalty free music?
You can use royalty free music after the initial purchase with no extra charges. While the initial license may still cost a bit of money, it grants you the right to use the licensed music in your projects without having to pay for each use. The music on Silverman Sound Studios is totally royalty free, and the initial license is also free if you choose to use the Creative Commons license (see below).
What is Creative Commons music?
Creative Commons music refers to music that you can license using the Creative Commons framework. This allows creators to share their work with the world while still retaining certain rights. Specifically, the music featured on this site can be licensed under Creative Commons Attribution 4.0, which means you are free to use it as long as you give me credit. If you’re interested in learning more about Creative Commons and how it works, go check out their website.
What is stock music?
Stock music, also known as library music, is pre-recorded music that is available for licensing and use in various media projects. It’s often used in television, film, video games, and other multimedia productions. People may use “stock music” and “royalty free music” interchangeably, but they are actually kinda different.
What is “copyright free music”?
The term “copyright free music” is commonly used to refer to music that you can use without getting any copyright claims or strikes (fun). However, there’s no such thing as truly “copyright free” music. A more accurate term would be “copyright claim free music.” Nonetheless, you can use the music on this site without fear of copyright infringement, as you have proper royalty free licensing options! So while the term “copyright free music” may be misleading, you can still use my music without worrying about legal issues. Bonzer!
What can I use this music for?
With the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 license, you have the freedom to use this music for virtually any purpose, as long as you provide proper attribution (credit). This means you can use the free music in your videos, podcasts, games, documentaries, Twitch streams, commercials, or whatever other crazy thing you’re making! Click here for more information on the specific terms and conditions of the license, and also check out the FAQs section here.
Can I use the tracks for commercial/monetised stuff?
Yeah go nuts! You can use the tracks for commercial or monetised purposes with no restrictions, as long as you comply with the terms of the license. This means you can use the music in advertisements, promotional videos, and other commercial projects without worrying about any legal issues. As long as you provide proper attribution and follow the guidelines in the license agreement, you’re free to use the music in any way you see fit. So go forth, and make all the money!
Can I use your royalty free music for YouTube?
Absolutely! You can use any of the royalty free music tracks on this site in your YouTube videos with no issues. In fact, you can use these tracks on pretty much any site, project, platform, or product you can think of. As long as you follow the terms of the license agreement and provide proper attribution, you can use the music in your videos. So add some bops to your YouTube videos!
Yeah but what about streaming?
Yes, you can use the music for streaming on platforms like Twitch or other similar services. In fact, I would even encourage you to play the music directly from streaming services like Spotify or Apple Music while you’re live streaming. This way, I will earn a few micro-pennies for the use of my music, woooo! If you’d rather download the tracks and play them, that’s fine too.
Do I have to pay?
No, you do not have to pay to use the music on this site. It’s completely, 100% free to use, as long as you follow the terms of the Creative Commons license, as stated above. However, I would greatly appreciate your support through a donation or patronage. Supporters literally keep Silverman Sound online with their generosity, so any support you can provide is appreciated. You can learn more about how to support me here.
If you’re unable to provide credits, or simply prefer not to, you also have the option to purchase a one-time Pro License. This license means you can use the music without having to give credit.
Why have I scrolled down this far?
I have no idea, you should probably scroll up to where all the music is.
