Sample Packs: What am I buying?
Our sample packs contain royalty-free sounds, MIDI and/or presets created for you to use in your own musical compositions. Any product bought from UNDRGRND SOUNDS is purchased under a LICENSE agreement. This means you do NOT take any ownership of the sounds or files themselves, instead it grants you the license to use the files within your music compositions. You can read our full license agreement here.
How can I use the sounds and files I have purchased?
When you buy one of our packs, you have purchased the right to use the licensed sounds in any of your musical compositions - commercial or otherwise. You have the right to release these commercially and collect royalties without any additional payment or royalties to UNDRGRND SOUNDS. As the individual sounds are licensed to you, you cannot use them in isolation or distribute them as part of a commercial project. For example you cannot sell the individual sounds as part of other sample packs or to third parties. Again, you can read our license agreement in full here.

How do I download one of your Kontakt libraries?
We provide the Continuata Connect download manager to offer high-speed, reliable and fully automated library downloading and installation. Download and run the latest version for your OS (PC or Mac) before proceeding. You may also need to add special permissions to your security software for the downloader, if it blocks applications from accessing the web. Next, copy-paste your download code from your download email into the Code box in the downloader window. Make sure to leave out any spaces before or after the code.
Press the download button and select the location you'd like to download and install the library. It will automatically start downloading the file(s) and then error-check, extract and install the finished library. Once installation is fully complete, you can remove the .rar download files and store them in a safe place as a back-up copy. We always recommend downloading the latest version of our downloader before you begin. The link in your email will always take you to the latest version.
Don't move, rename, delete or modify any of the files or folders created during the download until after you see the status message for all files in your download queue display the word "INSTALLED". Please don't close the downloader while it's actively downloading, unless you press the pause button first. To resume downloading, press the Resume button. If you need to resume downloading after closing the downloader, run it again and enter your code and press Download again. Then select the same download/installation location on your computer that you chose originally.
If the downloader reports a DL Error or Install error, it will automatically try to download the file again until it successfully downloads and verifies all the data it needs. It’s best to allow it to finish the process before trying to move or access the library data. Please see your download email for more detailed instructions.
