If I want to add some soundeffects to a app, which license should I buy?

This is an app to help you sleep and concentrate. Need to add a variety of sound effects, there will be some soundeffects to pay for using. What should I do for that?


You should be able to find rain noise, coffee shop, white noise etc. that you can use. It just depends what you’re going for.

The licensing will depend on if it’s a app that will be sold, how many people will use it etc.

Here is a quick rundown of the sound effect licenses and the license FAQ is a pretty good spot for more information on some of the trickier usage options.

Hope that helps!

Thank you for your reply. The application is free to download and use. We provide some free sound effects. In-app purchases, some sound effects need to purchase fees to use. In this case, what kind of license should I purchase?

I’m not a license expert, you’ll need the Envato Help and Support for that. But this is from the SFX single license page

You are licensed to use the Item to create one single End Product that incorporates the Item as well as other things, so that it is larger in scope and different in nature than the Item.

Examples of End Products: apps, games, podcasts, websites, live performances, videos, DVDs, films, TV shows and advertisements.

Hope that helps!

Hello there,

Can you please tell me which license did you buy? And, do they allow us to add sound effects in the app as PAID?

Waiting for the response!
