Artlist fundamentals

Artlist is for content creators all over the world. With a catalog of high-quality music and Artlist’s Individual and Business Licenses, content creators can enjoy creative freedom without limits.

Artlist’s Creator Pro plan is for all creators looking for a license to use music and/or SFX from the Artlist catalog for video projects. There are no limitations, so you can use the assets in as many of your projects as you like, on any platform worldwide, with no expiration, and you're even covered for commercial projects.

Artlist’s Social Creator License is a simple, straightforward solution for video & podcast creators worldwide who publish their projects on social media. The license is 'social' because it covers projects that you create for your social media channels on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Twitch. One channel per platform can be linked to your subscription, and any project you publish to these channels can be monetized.

We started Artlist in early 2015 to change the way content creators find, use, and are inspired by music for their projects. Over the years, we've evolved to offer creators a more complete tool for their filmmaking needs.

Plans & Sign up

An Individual plan means you only need one seat. Individual plans include our Social Creator and Creator Pro options. Both offer full access to the catalog with our Unlimited license for use. If you’re a content creator and only need a license to cover your personal projects, then our Social Creator plan is right for you. If you’re making content on a number of different channels per platform as well as commercial or client work, then our Creator Pro plan is exactly what you need. Our Business options are meant for teams that need more than 1 seat or companies that have 100 or more employees. Our Team plan offers up to 7 seats and includes our Unlimited license for use, while our Enterprise option is a customized solution.

The Creator Pro and Social Creator licenses both offer full access to the entire music and/or SFX (sound effects) catalogs with a sync license to cover your use of the assets in your videos without expiration. The Social Creator license is for social content creators who want to share their videos on social media platforms and is available with a yearly or monthly subscription. With this License, you're covered for 1 YouTube channel, 1 Facebook account or page, 1 TikTok account, 1 Twitch account & 1 podcast. Artlist's Creator Pro license is for filmmakers and freelancers who want to use the assets in their videos on any platform worldwide, including branded and commercial projects.

Yes! Artlist's Social Creator plan is available with a monthly or yearly subscription. A Social Creator plan covers use of Artlist's music and/or SFX in projects posted to your social media channels. YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok & Twitch are covered. If you've got more than 1 channel or you're working on a project for your client, Artlist's Creator Pro or Team plan might be just what you're looking for.

Contact our Support team directly and we’ll help you out.

The Social Creator plan covers 1 channel for each social media platform. This means 1 YouTube channel, 1 Facebook page or profile, 1 Twitter, 1 Instagram & 1 Twitch. You have the ability to update the channels on your license during your subscription period within reason. If you have a question about this policy or would like clarification if your changes are within our licensing terms, please contact us.

Our individual plans will cover the use of Artlist assets for the individual or business that’s listed on the subscription. 1 license = 1 seat, so our individual plans will cover you based on your creations. Our Social Creator plan is great if you are a solo creator with just 1 channel on social media platforms. This plan doesn’t cover advertising, commercial projects, or client work. So if you're just getting started, this is a great plan for you. Our Creator Pro plan allows you to advertise your business, create projects for your clients, and share on an unlimited number of social media channels. If more than one creator needs access to our account, we recommend our Team plan where up to 7 users can use the same account.

With our Individual plans, one license = one seat. If your business only has one creator using the assets, then you are still fully covered by your Creator Pro Plan. However, if your business has more than 1 team member who is using the account, you can upgrade to a Team plan which can include up to 7 users.

Artlist's new Team plan is a multi-seat account where 1 plan can cover your entire team. Up to 7 members can be covered for the projects they create for their employer (the business listed on the account). With 15% off each user on the team, you can affordably subscribe to a single plan to cover all of your business needs. If your business has more than 100 employees or requires more than 7 members on a team then our Enterprise solution might be right for you. Please contact our Sales Team from the Enterprise section of our Pricing page for more information.

Employees may access the account only for projects they create for the business. The music can't be used for their personal projects, as this use would require them to have their own Artlist license.

Yes! If you’re creating a project that isn't covered by any of our plans or are a company of over 100 employees, then our Enterprise plan can offer you a customized licensing solution based on your specific needs. Please contact our sales team through the Enterprise section of our Payment page here: https://artlist.io/page/pricing
