More and more people are asking if I do custom tracks. The answer is yes! And at very low cost…(most people are surprised at how affordable it is.) If you need something special created for your project, just send me an email and I’ll see what I can do. 🙂
IMPORTANT: You must properly attribute me in order to use my music and images legally:
You must attribute me in the actual video, game, interactive novel, etc.…not merely on the Youtube or game info page.
If you are using only my music and not that of another artist(s) then your credits screen in your video or game needs to say:
Music by Eric Matyas
If you are using my music as well as those of another artist(s) then you need to identify which tracks (and/or sound effects) are mine and credit me, for example:
“Invasion of the Giant Disco Ants”
by Eric Matyas
If cannot or do not wish to attribute me, then you will need to purchase a non-attribution license from me for $30/track.
FOR SOUND EFFECTS:
Please list my name and website in your credits screen of your game under “Sound effects.”
FOR TEXTURE IMAGES:
Please list my name and website in your credits screen of your game under “Texture Images.”
