FREE SOUNDTRACK MUSIC Download / Licensing Credits Purchase
Starting on August 1, 2021 new memberships and credit purchases are not available while the system is being upgraded.
Existing system users can still log in to download tracks through the REGULAR LOGIN PAGE.
Purchasing Free Soundtrack Music download credits makes you a "member" (registered system user) of the FSM online music library service.
This gives you login access to all of the system search functions and an unlimited number of downloads for tracks designated as "FREE". ("1-credit" tracks are limited to the number of credits purchased). The full version of the system is best used on desktop, laptop or tablet systems with a screen size of 10" or larger. (Use on mobile phones is not recommended.)
Before purchasing credits, please read the licensing terms and limitations section.
The FREESOUNDTRACKMUSIC system is administered by parent company InterAnnex Web Applications. (this is the company name appearing on PayPal orders.)

Registered User Additional System Functions:
There are a number of system functions available to members which are not available to anonymous visitors. These expanded features are described in the freesoundtrackmusic.com system registered user's guide.
Members have online access to the F.S.M. music library for a period of 60 days following the most recent purchase of download credits. During this time, you can listen to full-length preview versions of any tracks from the F.S.M. library and download (license) "1 credit" tracks up to the maximum limit of download credits purchased. Your royalty-free license will continue to exist indefinitely beyond this 60 days and will apply to all the music you have downloaded from freesoundtrackmusic.com during the period of time that you were a member.
60 days after download credits purchase, your "member" status will expire. You will NOT be automatically charged for a renewall. To renew your login access for another 60 days, simply buy another download credit or "download pack". Note: You may purchase additional download credits at any time. Each time you purchase additional download credits your "member" status will be extended for another 60 days (from your latest purchase date). To keep the same account and password after each renewal, always use the same email address for each PayPal order
How to download "1-credit" tracks:
Logging in will replace all of the "Not available to guest users" messages with active download links:
Downloading will save a Zipped
version of the selected track to your computer hard drive. (The file will have to be extracted from .zip format before you can use it with your video editing software). Licensees may continue to make royalty-free
use of downloaded tracks for an unlimited period of time. You do not have to use up all of your download credits in one session: you will continue to have login access for a period of 60
days (after which point your user account will expire).
