Together with our licensing partners we offer comprehensive solutions for the licensing of sounds and sound FX for special applications not covered by the synchronisation law. A large number of sounds from an ever-growing catalogue (consisting of more than 150,000 sound FX of every variety) is available for special applications. If you are looking for a highly specific sound, we are happy to assist you with your search. And if what you are looking for is not yet in our catalogue, we will make sure to add it right away.
As soon as sound material is mixed with other audio-visual material, the synchronisation law comes into effect. The synchronisation law also applies to sound material being played during stage or live performances as well as sound used to enhance actions in a computer game.
The following applications are not covered by the synchronisation law: sounds in smartphone apps, ebooks and ringtones; audio used for sound chips in toys, model trains. For more applications not covered by synchronisation law, please consult the list below.
If you would like to use sound material specifically for one of the listed applications, we will issue a mechanical license in accordance with the rights owner. This license gives you the right to use the sound material for your applications. Please contact us if you are not sure whether your application requires a mechanical license. We are happy to help you.
