Vast library

We have millions of music tracks and sound effects from a wide variety of providers on our platform. We have almost every major production music catalogue available and a great selection of indie labels and artists.

Direct licensing

Once you have a track that you like, you can select the clearances, license term and other important details. The system will then calculate the license price and you can directly license that track.

Budget search

Use our budget filter to avoid unpleasant surprises when you find a track that you really like. Define clearances and a cost limit for the search. We will then display only tracks within your budget limit in the search results.

Playlists workflow

Search for tracks, create playlists and share them with your colleagues or clients for easy viewing and download. This feature simplifies the creative and approval process.

Internal content

Import audio you already have from other sources (i.e. iTunes library/playlists) to your account. Then you can tag it, search it, use it and share it in the same way as the content on the main Kontent Core system.


For easy collaboration you can set up a company account and be able to search, view and clone all playlists, and review cue sheets and licenses from your colleagues within the same organization. This feature eliminates the duplication of double licensing or search efforts within an organization.

This is a great production tool that is transparent, faster, more cost effective and very efficient for your content needs!

- Paul Greco, Senior music producer at J. Walter Thompson -
