Frequently Asked Questions

  • Sonokinetic Basics Tutorial

  • Is buying online safe?

    Our payment processing is looked after by Paypal, an internationally respected digital sales operator with state of the art online security and customer service. You can pay using your Paypal account or, if you don't have one, checkout with your Credit Card using the Paypal payment gateway.
  • What do you do with my personal data?

    Please check our Privacy Policy.
  • If I buy downloadable sounds from Sonokinetic can I sell my productions?

    Yes. When you buy sounds from Sonokinetic you buy a license to use the samples in your own productions. Note that you are not obtaining OWNERSHIP of the sounds – you are in fact purchasing a LICENSE to use the sounds within your musical compositions, whether or not your compositions are released commercially. The license is non-transferable, so if you are using an illegal copy of the product, you are not authorised to use the sounds. The original producer of the sounds will always remain the owner of the actual sounds. You can find more specific license information on the Licensing Agreement page.
  • Can I use the sounds to make library / production music?

    Of course. Just so long as you follow the guidelines specified below in 'How can I use the samples?' – ensuring that the samples are used as parts of compositions and are not used in isolation.
  • Who else can use the sounds I have purchased?

    Nobody, unless they have also purchased the same sounds. Only the ORIGINAL PURCHASER of the sounds has the right to use them commercially. This means that you cannot sell or give away the sounds to anyone else. If you do, and someone else uses the sounds within a commercial release, they will have to pay royalties to the relevant producer / company for using the sounds. You will also have broken the law.
  • Do I have to credit my use of the sounds on my album sleeve, etc?

    No, you don’t have to – but it is often appreciated by us.
  • I make awesome sounds. Can I contribute to Sonokinetic Projects?

    We are always pleased to hear from top-class sound designers and sample producers. We pay well for the right material and we’re a young, friendly and exciting company to work with. Contact us at if you think you’ve got what it takes.
  • Is my credit card & paypal information safe with Sonokinetic?

    We use Paypal and Rabo Bank as our main payment handler. Please refer to their website for detailed information regarding security.
  • What methods of payment does Sonokinetic accept?

    We accept payments through Credit Card and Paypal.
  • Can I purchase without opening a paypal account?

    Yes you can, although the Credit Card button on checkout routes you to a Paypal page, it will allow you to pay with your card details without opening a Paypal account. In this case Paypal is just used as a payment processor and you can use your credit card in a similar way to other payment processors, without the need for a Paypal account.

Please contact us at before your purchase with a scan of your ID and a mention of the products you intend to buy, and we will issue a custom discount coupon in your user area at Already discounted products are not eligible for educational discounts.
  • Will my information be shared?

    Please check our Privacy Policy.
  • Are all samples used in the demos on the product pages present in the displayed sample libaries?

    Please note that all demos not composed and produced by Sonokinetic are licensed to Sonokinetic by the producers and composers. Most audio demos include instrumental elements not included in the presented library. We do not accept liability for incorrect use of 3rd party licensed software, samples, sound effects and any other production application in the demos written by demo composers. The responsibilities and liabilities for the compositions presented on Sonokinetic domain or web presence of any kind, soundcloud and any other publishing domain lay fully with the composer and producer of the demo track(s).
  • How can I use the samples?

    You may use the library samples in combination with other sounds within a musical context in your compositions. You may release such compositions commercially without payment of any further fees or royalties for such usage. For example, if you are the original purchaser of Sonokinetic “Grosso” and you used it for a television commercial, simply by combining its orchestral phrases with dialogue and fx, and it was broadcast hundreds of times, you would keep all royalties that the advert earns you, because you have purchased a private license to use the sounds commercially. You cannot use the sounds in isolation (i.e. when not within musical compositions) as part of a commercially released project – for instance you cannot use the sounds to make another sample CD or multimedia sound library DVD/CD.
  • Why can’t I extract the other archive rar parts (Parts 2, 3, 4 and up)?

    You only have to open the first part of the archive collections. (Part 1.) The other parts will be extracted automatically.
  • I’ve got a question you haven’t answered!
