How can I access my free tracks?
After you create a profile and pay for the "One year subscription" ("Lifetime of music"), you will be granted an access to the "CODE FOR SUBSCRIBERS" section. There you will find a current promo code for subscribers. Enter this code in your cart before you check out and you'll recieve a 100% discount on every track or SFX pack you add in your cart. This code will be updated regularly, so make sure you check out this page every time your old code won't work anymore and get a current one.
You should NOT share this code with anyone who doesn't have a valid subscription to tomasherudek.com. The license to use the works from this website applies to your or your company name only. Anyone who downloads the music or SFX for free without a subscription plan will use the works illegally.
Can I use the tracks I download during the one year subscription period after I cancel my subscription?
Yes, every track you download during your subscription from this website is yours for a lifetime. More below.
Is the one year subscription renewed automatically?

MUSIC AND LICENSE
Can I monetize my video?
Yes. All the music contained here is free for monetizing on every platform (Youtube, Vimeo, TikTok, Facebook, Instagram and any future platform).
Is the musicforvideo.org license valid worldwide?
Can I transfer my license?
Even though you can use the song as many time you wish, that applies only to you. The license is non-transferable and there will be written only your name or the name of your company on the invoice (which serves as a license certificate) - you cannot transfer the license to other parties. Of course, you can create an AV work for a client, and you can transfer that end product to your client. This license is then transferred to your client (but only in the form of a whole audiovisual work and the client cannot use the music alone in any future project).
Can I edit/re-master the music?
Sure! You can edit a song in order to make it fit your video project.
Do I have to credit the author?
You can credit me, but it´s not mandatory. I would very much appreciate it though. The proper way to do it is to copy this short text and add it in the description of your video:
Music by Tomas Herudek
Song: -- name of the song --
Can I use the music and SFX for any kind of project?
Yes, commercial, non-commercial, video, film, audio podcast, advertisement...The only thing you cannot do is that you cannot re-distribute the songs or claim ownership of the songs. With the "music for video" license you only own the right to use the song in your AV work. You cannot register my music in any store/platform. You cannot make a song or remix with my music.
For more info, check these rules.
Is there an additional cost for use in paid and/or branded advertising?
No. You pay only once. Doesn't matter if you AV work has tens of views or tens of millions of views. But even though you have the right to perform the music and SFX in public, it does not cover payment of royalties to PRO (Performance Rights Organizations). That means if you or your customer uses the music in broadcast, the broadcaster must cover these royalties. The PRO that covers all the songs from tomasherudek.com is OSA, based in Czech republic. IPI number: 01093612660.
Which platforms can I use the music and SFX on?
You can use the music on every platform and medium that exists today as part of a video or audio production. Plus the license will cover mediums that haven’t even been invented yet. This means that film, TV, virtual reality, video games, mobile, etc are all fair game.
Is the music royalty-free?
How long is my license valid?
Any song or SFX that you download can be used in a film/video in perpetuity - You will never be asked for any additional fees in the future.
In what file format is the music? Can I download the track in a different format?
All the songs and SFX are in .wav format. If you would like to download a song in a different format, please contact me.
How do I pay?
You can pay with PayPal.
