What’s the benefit of buying libraries vs subscribing to SoundQ?

When you purchase a library from Pro Sound Effects, you get 1-user unlimited usage of the files on any project, forever. You own those sounds.

When you subscribe to SoundQ, you get 30 download credits per month for the PSE Cloud Library to download sounds for 1-user usage in your current project. If you discontinue your subscription, you lose your credits and access to the Cloud Library.

Additionally, subscribing to SoundQ gets you unlimited cloud access to your purchased PSE Libraries.

I own Search software. What does this mean for me?

We’re offering an extended SoundQ trial for Search owners – contact us to get set up.

Your Search software will continue to work, and your iLok license is perpetual, so you can continue using it. However we will not be actively developing or releasing non-critical updates. Learn more here.

Search was our first foray into software and enhancing the experience of using PSE libraries. SoundQ is the future – it brings together our software and libraries for an affordable monthly subscription. We hope you’ll join us!
