And customers with registered accounts can download purchased products and invoices whenever and wherever you want.
How do I download my purchased music & invoices?

If you purchase via PayPal or Amazon, you will be automatically redirected back to Yummy Sounds, and you can download the music and invoice from the Thank You page. If you are a registered account holder, you can log in to “My Account” and download your items any time. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
Do I need to be registered to purchase music?
No you don´t. You can use guest checkout instead. Select an item and a license, and pay by PayPal or Amazon without logging into Yummy Sounds. After payment, you will receive an email containing your invoice, our terms and conditions, a download link to your music and a link to our license agreement.

Subscription for Unlimited Music on Yummy Sounds
What does my Yummy Sounds Subscription include?
Everything! With a valid license subscription, you will have instant access to our entire catalog of music. You can use this music in any private or commercial video production on any platform worldwide. The possibilities are endless!
How long is my license valid? Does the license end if my subscription expires?
Any song you download with an active subscription can be used in a film/video in perpetuity – meaning we will never ask for additional fees in the future, even after the subscription expires. Nor will the song be removed from circulation. Once you download a song with a subscription, you are licensed to use it forever – period.
Does my license cover a client who hires me for a video project?
Yes! If you are hired to produce a film for a client, for their personal or commercial use, your license covers that usage. So when you deliver the video production to them, they can use that video for their own application without needing their own music license. The client, however, cannot use the music apart from the video production you were hired to do.
Does my license cover my employees/collaborators?
If a business entity subscribes, then any of your employees may access and use the music in your company’s own projects. If an individual employee or contractor is working on a private project outside of your company’s usage, they would need to have their own individual license. If you’re not sure if this applies to you, drop us a quick line at [email protected]
Is the music royalty-free?
Yes. Yummy Sounds music is always royalty-free. That means there are no additional fees to use the music after you purchase a subscription or an individual music license.
Is there an additional cost for use in paid and/or branded advertising?
No way! Your license covers that too, with no additional fees.
Do we need to credit the musicians or Yummy Sounds?
That is completely up to you. Of course, we always appreciate credit being given to the artists for their great work – they’re a pretty amazing bunch! But artist attribution is not a requirement of using our music.
Can I transfer my license?
Sorry, but no. All licenses and subscriptions on Yummy Sounds are non-transferrable. Our subscribers are personal license holders for our material, and that cannot be transferred. And while your license does cover video projects that you produce on behalf of a client, the client is not licensed to use the music files apart from the video project you were hired to create.
Is there a download limit?
To help prevent the abuse of our site’s resources and to ensure that the content is available to all of our subscribers when they want it, we have set up an automatic monthly download limit of 50 tracks. However, if you wish to download more music just contact customer support at [email protected] and we will gladly increase your download limit. No extra cost.
How soon do I receive the music I license from Yummy Sounds?
Within minutes! As soon as your transaction has been processed, you will immediately be redirected to your download page, where your files will be ready for you. Additionally, we will automatically send a link to the email address you’ve provided. If you did not receive the download instructions by email, please check your “Junk” or “Spam” folder – it may have landed there. If you are a Yummy Sounds member, you can also retrieve the download from your account page.
Does the music I buy belong to me?
No. The copyright to the music remains the property of the composer. Purchasing a license only allows you to use the music for your projects and purposes in accordance with the license agreement.
How can I use the music and which license do I need?
Yummy Sounds music is made to be used in almost every media production project you can think of. Our cutting edge licensing makes it super clear cut for all our customers. Check out our LICENSING INFORMATION page for details. If you’re still unsure, please contact us, and we’ll be happy to help!
Is there a time limit to use the music?
No. As soon as you purchased a music piece you can use this forever. There is no time limit or yearly fee. You are totaly free to use the music as long as you like.
In how many projects can I use the Music?
This really is unlimited! Once you purchased a music item you can use this in as many projects as you like. You can use it for several customer and client videos and also for different versions of videos. You never have to think about “can i use this again?” simply because you can! This is really awesome.
Payments on Yummy Sounds
What transaction fees are there?
Good news! There aren’t any hidden costs whatsoever on Yummy Sounds! The price displayed in your cart is the price you’ll pay. There are no additional fees.
How can I pay for music items?
After you’re finished browsing our catalogue and adding items to your cart, click on the blue “Cart” button on the top right of your screen. When you click into “Checkout”, you’ll find several payment options. We offer the most common payment gateways because they’re so secure. We never collect your payment data. Choose from PayPal or Amazon, both of which allow credit and debit card purchases. And for our European customers we also offer the option of direct bank transfer.
How do you compensate your composers?
All our composers receive 50% of the net total of your purchase. We are a fair trade company and we are serious about paying decent money to Yummy producers and composers. Some stock music websites pay pennies per download to the composer. We don´t do this because we respect our composers. After all, they’re part of the Yummy Family!
Production & Custom Designs
Do you take commissions for custom music and design?
Yes we definitely do! All our composers take commissions. We are able to create custom music, intro music, sound logos and soundscapes for any project. Or, if you’ve found a track on Yummy Sounds that you like, but want a few changes, let us know what you’d like, and we can sort it for you. For example, we can change the track length or vary the sound to suit your needs. Our creative design team can also put together logo animations and video designs in 3D, 2D, VR and other formats. And because it’s all in-house, we can deliver top quality professional work with a quick turnaround. Let us know what you’ve got in mind!.
How much does a custom design cost?
That depends very much on your project. We usually charge hourly, and as soon as we know what your needs are, we will give you a time and cost quote. Our process is collaborative, and we’ll be in contact with you throughout development to make sure we are delivering the product you want. We work hard to bring you the highest quality professional designs!
