Professional Music License

Our Professional License is for those who want to purchase royalty free meditation music for use cases outside of our standard music usage terms.

We know that the subject of music licensing can be quite complicated, so we've streamlined our Professional License into two categories that cover the most common use cases for royalty free meditation music, enabling you to get started with your project immediately.

Category 1: CDs & Website Downloads

This category allows you to use our music as background music for any composition that will be recorded onto a CD, provided as a download from a website, or as a download sent to a mailing (email) list.

This may include the following use cases:

  • Guided meditations
  • Hypnosis recordings
  • Spoken word

Pricing (Per track):

  • Up to 500 copies/downloads – $250
  • 501-1,000 copies/downloads – $500
  • 1,001 – 3,000 copies/downloads – $1,000
  • 3,000+ copies/downloads – Enquire within

Usage Restrictions:

1. Our music cannot be sold or distributed as a standalone ‘music only' product.

2. Our music cannot be sold on iTunes or any other streaming or download service.

3. Our music cannot be used in YouTube videos, unless otherwise arranged as part of a specific licensing agreement.

4. Our music cannot be used in mobile applications.

5. You cannot create subliminal recordings in which your voice is inaudible. Your voice must be audible in all use cases.

6. Our music cannot be played naked (as standalone music) for longer than 2 minutes without a voiceover or other audio accompaniment being present.

7. You cannot alter our music and then claim the musical composition as your own. For example: you cannot add new sounds to our music and then sell or distribute the music as your own product. Any audio-only product you create must include a voiceover.

8. You cannot sub-license our music to any third party, nor can you sell our music as part of a production music library, as stock music, royalty free music or music sample library.

9. If you are creating recordings for clients or anyone else, these cannot be duplicated, distributed or sold by your clients. Only you have the right to create and sell recordings that incorporate our music.

10. You cannot use the titles of our recordings as the title of any production that incorporates our music.

11. All music used must be credited to us in the following way: (Title of Music). Licensed by BinauralBeatsMeditation.com. Where used online, the website name should contain a link (URL), as in the example given.

Category 2: Film & Multimedia

This category allows you to use our music as background music for amateur film and multimedia projects.

This may include the following use cases:

  • Corporate presentations
  • Audio-visual tutorials
  • Amateur video and film projects

Pricing (Per track):

  • 1 track: $200
  • 2 tracks: $350
  • 3 tracks: $500

Usage Restrictions:

1. Category 2 does not cover CD creation or website/mailing list downloads. If your project is a film or multimedia project that requires this use case, please refer to license category 1.

2. All restrictions set out in Category 1 also apply to Category 2.

How to Purchase Your License

To purchase your professional license, first choose the music you want to license from our store page.  You can then send us your request, stating your intended use case, using this contact form. We will then consider your request and, if approved, send you an invoice for your license. Once the invoice is paid, you can download and use the music.

Quick Fire FAQ

Can I sell via third party services like CDBaby/TuneCore/Distrokid?

Third party services like CDBaby, TuneCore and Distrokid enable you to distribute and sell your music via iTunes and streaming services like Spotify.

While we allow you to distribute a CD of your work featuring the music you have licensed from us via your website or directly to your clients, we do not allow you to distribute the music for the purpose of selling on iTunes (or other download store) or for streaming on services like Spotify.

So, yes, you could use CDBaby to sell a physical CD copy of your work, but you would not be permitted to use their digital download service to distribute the work to online music services. You can, however, sell downloads from your website, provided you keep track of sales and do not exceed the permitted usage quota of your license agreement.

Are there any additional license fees?

Once your initial payment is received you will not have to pay any further fees. This is true royalty free meditation music, which means that it is not registered with any performing rights organisations (PRS, ASCAP, BMI, etc.,) and therefore you will not have to pay performance royalties.

How long does the license last for?

This license has no expiry date. Provided that your payment is received in full and excepting any instance in which you breach the terms of this license agreement, you can continue to use the music indefinitely.

Can I edit the music?

You can edit our music by looping it, cutting it, applying fade ins, fade outs and transitions from one track to another, but you must not add additional sounds or instrumentation to the composition itself.

Can I leave parts of the music naked (standalone) in my recording?

You may create spoken word recordings with our music, but you must not leave the music "naked" (without an accompanying voiceover) for longer than 2 minutes at any interval. The entire duration of the music must contain at least two thirds of voice-over.

For example, you could create a 30 minute hypnosis recording in which you speak for the first 10 minutes and then allow the music to play by itself for the remaining 20 minutes.

However, you must ensure that your finished recording is one continuous 30 minute track (not two separate tracks; one 10 minute meditation and then a separate 20 minute music-only track).

Can I burn the music to CD, or send it to someone by USB?

You can burn a CD or DVD, transfer the music to a portable storage device such as a USB flash drive, and transfer the music via online file transfer services.

However, you can only send the music to persons who are directly involved in the development of your products or projects.

We expect you to take all reasonable measures to prevent unauthorized copying and distribution of our music.
