How to properly credit PlayOnLoop

Free loops are basically shorter edits from Standard Loops, with a slightly quality reduction (22khz / 8 bit VS 44khz / 16 bit). The other difference from our paid royalty free music is the License. Our free music is released under the Creative Commons Attribute license. You can find all the license details here:

If you end up using our free looping music, please be sure to credit us in the project you’re creating in order to help our website grow and the artist behind the music to get credited for his work. Credits should be placed such that a person who wants to know where the background music came from should have no difficulty in finding it. Place the information in your project description field or in the credit screen of your game / app or on the webpage where your media is included or available for download. Also, the Creative Commons Attribution License, should be always indicated.

If you are interested in using the short version of our instrumental music tracks in a television broadcast, or in a radio commercial, or in some other format where credits are impossible, or you just don’t want to indicate the source, we ask for a little donation – you can donate as much as you want. To make things easier for you, we have a Ko-fi page where you can donate using PayPal or Stripe, and can decide if making your donation private.
