  • Where can I use Uppbeat music & sound effects?

    Uppbeat is for creators. You can use our music & sound effects in content you’re sharing on YouTube, social media, live streams, websites and anywhere online!

    You can use Uppbeat for monetized, sponsored, affiliated and pay-to-access content such as videos on Patreon. If you’re looking to use Uppbeat music or sound effects in paid advertising or for a business or organization, Uppbeat Business is the plan you’ll need.

  • Which plan is best for me?

    Uppbeat Free is great if you're getting started as a creator. It's for individual creators, provides access to 30% of the catalog and gives you an allowance of 3 downloads which tops up by 1 every month.

    Uppbeat Premium is for individuals and ‘micro organizations’ (5 employees or less). It offers unlimited downloads, access to sound effects, and copyright safelisting for up to 3 YouTube channels. You'll also enjoy ad-free browsing!

    Uppbeat Business caters for businesses of any size and includes clearance for online paid advertising and client content. It includes all the features of Premium plus safelisting for up to 10 YouTube channels.

  • Is the music copyright free?

    Yes! You won’t have any copyright issues when using Uppbeat music correctly. If you’re a free user, this simply means including Uppbeat Credits in your video descriptions, and if you’re a Premium or Business subscriber you can safelist your channels to make life even easier!

  • How do artists get paid?

    Everytime you download our artists’ music, whether that’s for free or with an Uppbeat Premium account, we pay them from a pool of Uppbeat Premium subscriptions and other revenue.

    Artists are the beating heart of Uppbeat, and we’re committed to providing a great platform for them. That’s why all of our artists also keep total control and ownership of their music.
