What can I do during my free trial?
During your trial, you can browse, like, and preview samples on the Sounds platform, and use Bridge to preview any samples in your projects. You can also download any samples that cost 0 credits. Once you start a subscription, you will unlock your plan’s credits and be able to download samples that cost 1 or more credits.
In a Creator or Creator+ Plan trial, you’ll also have access to Astra and Beatmaker, as well as Skills, our on-demand education library.
How do Sounds credits work?
As a subscriber, you’ll receive credits each month that can be used to download sample packs, individual samples including loops and one-shots, MIDI patterns, and presets for popular plugins. Credits you don’t use will roll over to your next month unless you decide to cancel your subscription. All samples are 1 credit while MIDI patterns and presets can cost up to 3 credits each.
Is my DAW supported?
Splice Sounds work with any DAW. The source files for your Sounds will download to a folder location on your computer that you can view with the Splice Desktop App.
Splice plugins, like Bridge, Astra, and Beatmaker, are fully supported on the following DAWs:
- Ableton Live 10+
- Logic Pro X 10.5+
- Studio One 5+
- FL Studio 20.8+
- GarageBand 10.4+
These plugins are in VST3 or AU plugin format and will only work with DAWs that support those formats.
Can I cancel anytime? What happens when I cancel?
Yes! Cancel at any time, even during your trial. If you cancel during your trial, you will still have access to the features for the full 14 days. When you cancel a paid plan, you will have access until your next billing cycle but will lose any unused credits once the plan is fully canceled. You are able to pause your plan for up to two months if you do not wish to lose the credits you’ve accrued.
Can I upgrade or downgrade my subscription anytime?
Yes! When you upgrade, you will have immediate access to any additional credits and any features on the newly selected plan will be available to you.
If you downgrade, your new plan will take effect on the next billing cycle and you will keep any credits you have accrued up to that point. Your new monthly credits will be available on your next billing cycle and will be added to your existing credit bank.
Why do we use a system of credits?
Credits are an important part of how we track and pay the creators that contribute to the massive, diverse Sounds catalog. Each year, Splice is able to pay millions back to sample creators by using credits to track sample usage. Credits you spend directly support the creators that make the samples you choose to download.
I'm currently on a Sounds Plan. How do I switch over to one of the new Splice Plans?
You can switch over to one of the new Splice Plans here. You will be charged immediately for the plan you switch to and receive the monthly credit reward and access to the software and features included in the new plan immediately as well.
I just want Sounds and Skills (or Sounds and Astra/Beatmaker). Is there a plan for that?
There isn’t a plan that only includes Sounds and Skills (or Sounds and Astra/Beatmaker) at this time, but we encourage you to give features you don't think you'd be interested in a try!
