Sounds License Agreement

Spectrasonics instruments come with two License Agreements, one for the software itself and another covering usage of the sounds. Below is an example of our standard Sound License Agreement. We encourage potential users to see the Licensing FAQs section which answers many common questions users have about our licensing policies.
