How to launch a project ?
Once you have selected one of our services, click on the button « Start » to start your project.
Then you have 2 choices :
1) Create your project brief immediately
Fill in the 3 steps of the brief to launch your sound creation project.
As soon as you validate your order, a project manager will contact you to validate your brief and distribute your project to our composers.
2) Receive a personalized quotation
After filling in the requested information (Business name, Billing address, email), you receive your QUOTATION in your e-mail box to share it with your internal collaborators
What's a brief ?
It consists of all the information about your brand, your musical preferences, and your musical tastes to define your sound creation project.
This essential document not only allows you to find the most suitable creative for your needs but also to allow them to work in the best conditions.
The brief is then distributed to our composers, to help them understand your brand universe and compose original works.
If your brief is not precise enough, don’t worry, our team will contact you to refine it !
Here is a brief example on GETASOUND.

To know how to fill in your brief, we invite you to check our tutorial : Creative brief creation .
You can also call us on 06 61 00 51 85, a project manager will help you fill in the brief.
How to write a « good brief » ?
To write a good brief, start by filling in the 3 steps of the brief of Getasound :
– information on your brand,
– your musical preferences,
– and your musical tastes.
The Brand : The more information there is about your brand, its values, its history, and its customers, the easier it will be for composers to immerse themselves in your brand universe.
The musical preferences : These are all the artistic details that you wish to have in your sound creation. They allow you to define more precisely : the musical style, the instruments used, or the atmosphere of your work.
The Examples : Choose among our examples the sound creations you prefer ! You can also suggest your examples by adding a link (youtube video/radio spot) or by uploading an audio file. These examples will help the musicians to understand your expectations and your musical tastes for your future creation.
For an upstream reflection on your brand, do not hesitate to consult our article : How to translate your brand into music ?
If your brief is not precise enough, no worries, a project manager will contact you to refine it !
Here is a brief example on GETASOUND.
The more the brief is filled, the more precise the brief is !
Can I modify my brief ?
Once your order is confirmed, a project manager will contact you to validate your brief. At this point, there will still be time to make the final changes to it !
Once the project is launched and the brief is distributed to our composers, you will not be able to modify it !
How to select my mock-up ?
Each of the sound mock-ups is accompanied by an argument from the composer explaining his creative choice.
You can also ask your internal collaborators or your close network for advice.
Our project manager will also be pleased to advise you on the choice of your final work.
How many changes can I make on a creation?
Which payment method does GETASOUND offer ?
A project manager will then contact you to confirm the brief and your project before proceeding with payment.
Payment is made by bank transfer to the address indicated on the GETASOUND QUOTATION.
Can I cancel my order ?
Before any distribution and communication of your project to the composers, a project manager will contact you to validate your order and your brief.
This is also the time to make the payment by bank transfer.
If you cancel your order after your brief has been released to the composers, you will be refunded 50% of your payment.
How does satisfied or refunded work ?
1) None of the propositions made by the composers satisfies you,
2) None of the propositions respect the creative brief previously validated.
If these two conditions are met, you have the right to request a full refund of your order.
The request must be accompanied by a justified email addressed to GETASOUND at the following address : firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I work with a creative on my premises ?
Do I have to pay ASCAP royalties?
If the composer is a member of the ASCAP, you are indebted to the ASCAP royalties.
If the composer is not a member of the ASCAP, you are not indebted to the ASCAP royalties.
You do not wish to pay ASCAP royalties ?
We can select for you composers who are not members of the ASCAP for your project. This option is billed to compensate for the artist’s loss of earnings on royalties.
For more information, contact us at the address : email@example.com
Why do I have to pay the ASCAP ?
In this case, the work can be deposited at the SACEM by the composer and thus be subjected to a royalty related to the reproduction right and the right of representation of the work (spectacles, television, radio, cinema, etc…).
Therefore you are indebted for the ASCAP royalty if the composer is a registered member of the ASCAP.
To know : the advertising campaigns on the Radio, Television, and Cinema channels already include the ASCAP royalties in their packages. This will not change anything for you !
For more information on the exploitation of the works, do not hesitate to consult the ASCAP site.
