Abletunes License Agreement
What you can do with Abletunes templates and template-based music
Personal, Educational, Production Use ( “as is”, with our original melodies)
- Deconstruct and learn arrangement, structure, sound processing, automation, etc
- Practice in mixing and mastering
- Practice in composition, arrangement, etc
- Use samples, presets, processing racks from templates for your own commercial productions
- Play at home
- Play at the club/festival/party
- Use in a live theatrical performance
Commercial Use of template-based productions
You can use template-based music for commercial purposes if you changed/modified all the main melodies. That's our minimum requirement. You can keep drum samples, drum patterns, track structure, effects, synth presets, processing, etc.
If you changed all the main melodies then you can:
- Use templates as a starting point for your own commercial productions
- Release on a record label, iTunes, Spotify, YouTube, etc
- Use for TV, web or radio advertisement
- Use in videos, films, trailers, apps, games, or other multimedia
- Use as part of a product available for purchase in a store or online
However, we recommend you to make deeper template modification (change synth presets, some drum samples, effects) if you're going to release template-based track on a record label.
What you cannot do with Abletunes templates and template-based music
- Re-sell or share the project (modified or not) or any samples/presets from the project
- Claim exclusive ownership or authorship of the track without modifying original melodies
- Use for creating sample libraries and royalty-free music
Can I render the template 'as is' and release it on a record label?
No, you can not. You should make significant changes into template. For example, change the root note, melody, sound processing, add your own ideas and sounds, etc. The main and minimum requirement is to change all the main melodies.
Are there any restrictions for using samples and presets from the template I purchased?
All samples and presets used in our products are royalty-free. You can use separate samples and presets in your own music productions. You are allowed to create the unlimited number of music productions based on one template. Any kind of separate distribution is strictly prohibited.
