BandLab Sounds gives you unlimited access to an extensive library of more than 10,000 royalty-free loops and samples.
You can do almost anything with our samples. Our goal has always been to provide creators with the tools they need to make great music, with as little in the way of that as possible. But there are some some small limitations. Read on to find out more about using BandLab Sounds.
Are the samples on BandLab Sounds royalty-free?
Yes! Any sound you like can be used either personally or commercially. We offer a royalty-free licence for everything on the site; use whatever you want to make something great.
What’s the catch? Are there any limitations?
There’s only one limitation: You cannot use or redistribute BandLab sounds as standalone or isolated samples. For example, you cannot upload BandLab sounds to competitor services or distribute or sell a sample pack created in whole or part from BandLab Sounds. You cannot resell any samples without enacting some derivative or compositional process to the samples.
Do I own 100% of the music I’ve made with BandLab Sounds samples?
What if other users use the same samples as me? Am I still allowed to use them?
Yes! Our broad license applies to all users.
Do I need to credit the original sample producer in my works?
Can I use BandLab Sounds in works for podcasts, video games, or films?
What if I use a sample in isolation during one of my compositions?
Totally fine! As long as the sample is a part of a larger composition as a whole, there are no problems. So if that soloed 808 loop is just perfect for your bridge, go for it.
If I delete my BandLab account, am I still allowed to use the samples I downloaded?
Can I distribute BandLab sounds in other applications or services?
No. BandLab Sounds cannot be used to populate sampler presets, loop libraries, or sample packs distributed through competitors. For example, you could use BandLab Sounds in your favorite Ableton Drum Rack, but you couldn’t distribute or sell a drum rack preset as an instrument made containing BandLab sounds.
