Are all IX’s instrument samples royalty free?
    Does that mean I am able to use the instruments to compose music for multimedia?
    Yes and you will have the full option of being the owner of your works.
    Can I use IX’s material to develop my own sample library for distribution?
    No. You are usually limited to using sound samples in a music composition only. Using samples from libraries or packs as layers in order to create new materials for a new sound sample product does not constitute a musical context, so selling and distributing them is prohibited. A sample library or SFX toolkit should be made from scratch, using your own source material and creative and original synthesis (not using ready-made presets). You also may not transfer, broadcast, stream, redistribute or use downloaded samples except when incorporated into a music product.

    Please see each company's/developer's EULA for the full list of restrictions and limitations. Rendering and using samples from IX Sound for selling on stock audio websites (i.e. Audiojungle, Motion Array, etc.) as logos, sound effects, and other audio items of less than 15 sec and not in a music composition is also strictly prohibited. Legal action will be enforced if/when the company deems necessary.
    Can I use your instrument samples for commercial use?
    The license for samples you download from IX can be used for commercial and non-commercial uses as long as the samples are a part of your music composition or comply with the EULA. You may not use them as standalone sound effects or loops, or to create new samples to compete with IX Sound. You also may not transfer, broadcast, stream, redistribute or use the samples except when incorporated into a music product.
    Do I have 100% ownership of the samples?
    You have ownership of your composition made with samples purchased from IX, but as a reminder, you don’t own the copyright to samples. Other users can use the same samples without infringing on your track and vice versa. When you purchase a sample instrument from IX, you are not obtaining ownership of the sounds - you are in fact purchasing a license to use the sounds within your musical compositions, whether or not your compositions are released commercially. The original producer of the sounds will always remain the owner of the sounds.
    Do I lose my license if I choose to close my IX Sound account?
    No. The sample libraries you have purchased are still covered under our royalty-free license.
    If I use an unedited, isolated loop as the beginning of my composition, is that covered by the royalty-free license?
    Because the sample is included in a larger compositional piece, the sample is covered by the royalty-free license even if the sample is soloed at some point in the track.
    What do you mean by using a sample in isolation?
    This would be referring to situations where users take IX samples and use them independently away from other audio assets (not using them in a composition with other elements).
