Where do the sounds come from?

PowerFX. We have been producing samples for over 10 years.

Can I sell my songs commercially without asking Soundation for permission or sharing royalties?

Yes, anything you create in Soundation is your production, the only exception is you cannot transfer, upload, share, give or sell any of the isolated or individual sound files. They are licensed to you to use in your productions but not to give away, upload or sell as individual loops or samples. Here is our full licensing agreement.

I am a teacher, do you have any educational offerings?
Schools and educators have the option purchase what we call Soundation4Education. We offer this in a partnership with education company MusicFirst. Read more about Soundation4Education and contact MusicFirst with any further questions.

Why is my sound lagging, glitching or stuttering?

Depending on the power of your computer or the size of your song some lagging can occur during playback. The reason most often is that your song is using a lot of computer processing power. This can usually be remedied by increasing the Buffer Size under the the studio settings menu.

Can I publish my finished song to my blog or social networking website like Facebook?

Absolutely! After publishing your song to your Soundation profile you can then share to your social networks.

What is the Library?

The library contains all the loops that can dragged in to the studio arrangement. The Free Sounds folders are included for all Soundation users. If you buy anything from our Sound Shop all your products will go into the Bought Sounds folder which updates automatically. If you buy a paid account AudioLocker and a My Files folder will appear so you can store and import your own loops and sounds.

Can I import my own sounds into Soundation Studio?

Any of our paid account subscriptions includes audio storage which will give you access to import, save and store audio files in your studio My Files folder. You can use the Import Audio File feature or use the My Files folder to upload your sounds. You can only import MP3 or WAV files.
