Introducing Simple Licensing


Thousands of amazing tracks. Two incredibly simple licenses. Music licensing just got a whole lot easier.

Here at PremiumBeat, we pride ourselves on offering a library full of the freshest and highest quality music tracks for professionals of all kinds. We always look for new ways to make music licensing easier for our customers while maintaining the highest standards for our production music.

In an effort to make licensing royalty free tracks even easier, we’ve condensed the extra steps and options. No longer will you need to add loops and short versions to your purchase — they are included with every license. No more worrying about what your license may or may not cover. We are thrilled to announce our simplified Standard and Premium Licenses.
