What Is Royalty-Free Music?

The word ‘free’ can be misleading as royalty-free music still requires a licence to use. However, unlike other licences, the use of royalty-free music only requires one upfront payment which allows you to use the track however you like as royalties do not need to be paid, hence the term ‘royalty-free’. 


Royalty-free licences vary from company to company but in general, royalty-free music comes with:

  • A one-off single payment with no additional usage costs
  • Usage across all platforms and media
  • Global clearance for all territories

Stock Music, Copyright-Free, Creative Commons

The terminology used around royalty-free music can be blurry so it’s important to fully understand what you can and can’t do with the music you find. The terms stock music, public domain, copyright-free, and creative commons often come up when talking about royalty-free music but they all mean slightly different things which, if misunderstood, can cause issues further down the line for your project.

“I’m a daily user, whether that’s checking briefs or pitching for sync. I’ve used other systems and I’ve disregarded them all in favour of Music Gateway.”

Producer / musician

“I've been a member for 2 years. I upgraded to their Influencer tier a year ago and with this one sync alone it's paid for itself many times over.”
