What advantages does AuDym offer?2018-05-10T19:04:18+02:00

The main advantage of buying an AuDym recording is that you will not have to pay any fees or royalties afterwards. All our recordings are free of copyright, SACEM (France), SODRAC (Quebec), SUISA (Switzerland), SABAM (Belgium)…This also makes it possible to avoid the sometimes long and complicated requests for authorizations from authors, composers and producers.  When buying our recordings, the “Private” license is included and specially designed for individuals! However, if your needs exceed the limitations of the “Private” license, choose a higher license.  Finally, you will get your recording in the minute following your purchase (a little longer delay for certain types of payment).
