The Importance Of Licensing Tracks
Without further ado, let’s get into why you should license music, and the difference between downloading and actually licensing tracks.
Why Do I Need To License Music?
We believe that our artists need to be compensated for their work, like our creative community does. Audiosocket offers premium quality music, plus the license is a legal requirement. Having a license allows you to use any track in your projects that require music.
Can I Just Download Tracks From Audiosocket?
“I have been downloading music at audiosocket.com, so why do I need to read this document?”
In short, downloading alone does not mean you have a license. If you were to use the downloaded track in your project, you’d be risking copyright infringement. Artists are also compensated for their work only when the track is licensed.

What Are The Benefits Of Audiosocket Compared To Stock Music?
Firstly, the quality of stock music or “canned music” can be a gamble. It can lack the depth compared to tracks created by working artists and bands, and can be quite generic. Also, stock music sites are used by tons of content creators, meaning that your videos lose their uniqueness. We find that lots of videos end up sharing the same tracks. Some stock music sites also create the entirety of their own music library. This means less variety and a lack of individuality or care that artists would put in for their own music.
Audiosocket, however, features handcrafted tracks from touring artists and bands for you to license. It’s safe to say there is plenty of choice with tens of thousands of tracks to choose from! You can also search by mood, genre, duration, themes and more to find your perfect soundtrack.
You can access Audiosocket’s music catalog from just $15 a month as an Individual creator. Not only that, but this allows you to license an unlimited number of tracks at no additional cost. What are you waiting for? Hit up Audiosocket now!
