sonic-boom saidComparing to other places it’s not too cheap. Almost all big stock have default multi use license. You buy a CD with SFX and there’s usually unlimited usage license. The problem is not in licensing multiply factor but in pricing SFX. Many complex sound design effects until 0:10 duration time cost rubbish comparing to beeps, dings and clicks. But it’s not easy to invent more fair automatic pricing system. Maybe it would depend on sound cathegory or be set by author or reviewer..
5x seems more realistic for multi-use to me… I mean, based on a $1 sound effect, would a client be prepared to pay $5 (instead of the current $3) for something they can use with ANY future project/client? Yes! After all, most multi-use purchases are going to come from businesses… Then again, I may be completely wrong, but to be honest at this price point I think I may actually be right!!
That’s very true… although I would guess that many buyers tend to stick with one company for purchases. Yep, complex sounds should cost a bit more, although this does happen already most get the $1 price tag.

‘Right now I’m thinking that 3x is too low’
A great tool at a great price! Many thanks to Adi for coming up with this and for his great customer service (inc. a personalized ‘how to’ video) – very cool. Highly recommended – a must have for audio junglers..
I might be asking a little too much but: Can we have anything like a Royalty structure for SFX usage especially for Films and Multimedia usage, like the royalty structure for music tracks? After all, if a film is sold 1 million times, so is an Action Scene in that film and an underneath Action Whoosh sound effect supporting the scene.
Not sure how this would work (although it would be nice)... we are selling our sounds royalty-free after all. Unless, of course, you mean a front end ‘bonus’ for such use paid at the time of purchase.
Good points in this thread, but we need some staff input too!
Hi Eric, This sounds interesting! Can you let us know what the 2-tier prices will be for SFX when this goes live? I hope it’s higher than the current rate. Thanks!
rapidgraf saidthe trending mark appears only when the item sells well, when no one buys the item, the trending mark dissapears. It’s not put there forever!
The items in my portfolio that previously was badged with “trending” now not. I hope this is a system bug or can I ask if someone with graphicriver profile meet the same ?
Well, a couple of hours ago there were a lot of audio items that were ‘trending’ without any sales… perhaps this was a bug, or simply because they were new.

Hey everyone, just to emphasize a few points:
The $18 base license really only serves smaller and shorter term broadcasts. The audience size limitation is for the total expected audience size over the life of the broadcast, so even smaller broadcasts that plan to run more frequently or for longer periods of time may need a higher broadcast tier.
From an author’s perspective it would be great to know who was using our material, but I guess this wouldn’t be ideal for AJ.
Hey everyone, let’s try to keep the conversation focused on the licenses at hand . Multiple use isn’t on the table right now, and we know Sound Effects and other media areas are in need of some individual licensing attention as well (music licensing was our first priority).
Yay! Sound effects… Thanks, Eric
PROs – If a client is purchasing music to broadcast, I don’t think they would have a problem paying back-end royalties. In most cases, big broadcasters (historically) are used to music being PRO registered and the $ is less of an issue, for smaller broadcasters the back-end royalties would usually be quite a small amount anyway.
