Frequently Asked Questions

What license should I use?

We have two subscription plans and four different single types of licenses, each one serving different purposes depending on specific contexts and audience sizes. The licenses include USE & Mention, PRO, BUSINESS, and BROADCAST. Check our licensing  page for a better understanding of all the options available.

What is the “USE & MENTION” License?

This license is for PERSONAL use only. If you are a freelancer or a business, you must purchase a license. The USE & MENTION license is not valid for monetization.

Our royalty-free music could be used in exchange of a mention when your use is covered under the USE & MENTION License. If that’s the case, you MUST GIVE ATTRIBUTION to HookSounds when it is used in videos, on websites or for any other purpose.

This license allows users to distribute, remix, tweak, and build upon a musical composition, as long as they credit the website for their original creations and distribution.

If you want to use a sound or music file without giving attribution or if your project falls into any of the categories listed on our other types of licenses, you MUST purchase a license at http:/

How to insert the attribution?

In order to use our music under the USE & MENTION License, you must credit HookSounds.  This will enable us to continue offering a wide range of royalty-free music.

How to attribute

For websites:
Insert the attribution on the page where the track is to be played (usually as a page footer) or on your product page.

For Videos:
For YouTube, Vimeo or any other video platforms, the attribution must appear in the description field.

Social Networks:
If you desire to upload any of our resources to your social networks please remember that you must insert the attribution on the publication and in the description of the video (or any corresponding content).

In all the above cases the attribution must contain a link to the item you’ve used in HookSounds in the following way:

Title: Title of the track

Where Title of the track is the name of the track you’ve downloaded.

For Instance:

Title: Back In Summer


Title: Back In Summer

What is an end-product?

If you need a single license for a track that will feature in one-end product,  so if you want to use the song for a different project you need to purchase another license.


What Payment methods can I use?

The accepted modes of payment include Credit Card, Debit Card and PayPal.

Do you offer a subscription plan?

Yes. With either of our subscription, you gain access to all our music right away and to every single track released in the future. Check our subscription page to get started.

If you want to use our music to create third-party content, you will need a  business subscription. Check our business plan here.

I’m a musician/producer, how can I contribute?
