Thanks for visiting! My name is Jonah. I'm a professional sound track composer for games and film. On this web site you'll find my commercial portfolio that is available for royalty-free use in commercial projects, as well as my free use music library available for use in any non-commercial project. I am also available for hired work! Check out the FAQ for more information.

The best way is via e-mail. You can also leave me some comments on this site as well as in places where I share my music like
YouTube, Newgrounds, Audiojungle, Soundcloud, ect. I try to keep up on any feedback I receive from those places, however it's easy to overlook
a comment sometimes.|
My electric guitar is a Fender Squire Strat. I record with a Pod X3 plugged into my computer via usb. My acoustic is an Esteban
brand guitar. I have a Sterling ST31 condenser mic that I plug into a Presonus TubePre preamp for mic-ing my acoustic. I also use
a Fender bass guitar. My keyboard is a Prokeys 88.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop with Windows Vista that I run Sony Acid Pro and Reason on. That was the primary setup for my older recordings. Most of my new stuff is done on my 2012 Macbook Pro running Logic and Reason. I use Audacity for a lot of general wave editing stuff. I use a lot of different plugins, but some of the more common ones are Guitar Rig, Izotope Ozone and Vinyl, and dBlue Glitch.
Some of my tracks you can, others you need to purchase a license to use. When you select a category or project on this site, look
just underneath the category title for the licensing description. Here is a screenshot
that highlights the licensing description. This tells you how these tracks can and cannot be used.|
Licensing is not nearly as complicated as it may first appear. It helps to understand some basic terminology first. You should understand
these terms before purchasing any kind of IP rights license so you know exactly what you're getting.|
To purchase a JB-Audio license for a particular track, look for the purchase icon () next to the track's title.
If there is no purchase icon next to the track title then there is no license available for that track. If the track is an AudioJungle release
then a license must be purchased through AudioJungle by clicking the "Buy" link located at the top of the AudioJungle track player.|
You must have a Paypal account to purchase a JB-Audio license. Signing up for a Paypal account is free and it's easy. Just visit Paypal.com and register.
A JB-Audio license is sold by me through Paypal. You select the track you want to purchase on this site, you are redirected to
Paypal to make your payment, then you are returned to this site where a custom license will be generated for you. Custom licensing
contracts and deals can be also be negotiated by emailing me.|
An AudioJungle license is not sold be me. Instead, it is sold by a company called Envato and it's subsidiary company called AudioJungle. When you click the buy link to purchase an AudioJungle track on this site, you will be redirected to AudioJungle where you will make your payment and receive your license through them.
The JB-Audio license is a simple way to buy usage rights to one of my songs. It's geared towards the indy media developers and small companies
that need licensed music quickly and cheaply. In short, the license gives you the right to synchronize my music with your media project then distribute
the project across numerous platforms anywhere in the world. There are no contracts to sign, no negotiations to be made. It's a simple click through
process that takes minutes.|
There are two kinds of JB-Audio licenses. A commercial use license and a basic/standard license. Both are royalty free and grant you non-exclusive master use and synchronization rights for the master recording(s) and composition(s). The basic/standard license allows you to use the track in a single non-commercial project. This could include a Youtube video, a free web game, ect. If the project in which the audio file will appear is fully non-commercial in nature (ie will not be sold for direct profit and is not intended to advertise a product that is sold for direct profit) then a basic/standard license will cover this.
A commercial use license allows you to use the track in a single project that is commercial in nature (ie will be sold for direct profit, or advertises a product that is sold for direct profit). Examples that require a commercial use license include a commercially released video game, a film advertisement for a commercial product, background music in a place of business, ect.
Please note that these licenses only cover usage in one project. The project may be duplicated and distributed, but your license only covers usage in that one project. Future projects require an additional license. A series (for example, multiple episodes of a the same Youtube show) may be regarded as one project.
If a master recording exists in multiple formats on this site (ie, MP3 and WAV) then your license will cover usage of both files. Some licenses may cover "track packs" or zip files containing multiple tracks. These may be packages with multiple versions of the same track, different loops cut from the same track, or different tracks with a common theme. If the track listing on this site is a package then the track title will reflect that (ie, The Digital Sound Effects Pack). You can click the item description () for more information about the contents of a track pack.
The basic/standard and commercial JB-Audio licenses are designed to cover the most typical kinds of licensing scenarios. If you need a license for usage that is not covered by the basic/standard and commercial licenses, you may contact me and we can negotiate the details. If you have any further questions about licensing or you are unsure of the kind of license your unique project needs, don't hesitate to email me. I will be happy to assist you.
Here are samples of the JB-Audio Licenses: Basic/Standard Sample, Commercial Use Sample
Audio Jungle offers two kinds of licenses. A regular license and an extended license. The regular license covers one royalty free usage in any kind of media package that
isn't being sold directly. You can purchase a regular license for, as an example, a free video game or YouTube video. You can also use a regular
license for advertisement purposes. For example, a freely released video that advertises a product that your are selling. In general, so long as
the track is not being included in any kind of package that is being sold, then a regular license should cover it.|
The extended license covers commercial usage. The cost of an extended license is five times the price of the regular license. It allows you to include the track into a package that will be duplicated and sold directly to consumers. Please note that by purchasing a license you are only buying the right to use the track in one application. You are not buying the rights to the track itself. This is just a brief overview of Audio Jungle's licensing system. If you are considering a license, you may want to read Audio Jungle's licensing FAQ for a more detailed explanation.
For a JB-Audio license you can go to the retrieve license page for instructions on how to get
your license back. For an AudioJungle license you can visit AudioJungle and
log on to your account. Your license will be available from your user control panel.|
Yes you can! I'm still trying to claim some ground in the professional composer world so I will charge at the low end of standard market prices.
Email me and we can discuss it further.
Not yet I haven't, though I have sold some extended commercial-use licenses for some of my stock library works.
I'm hoping to start building up a portfolio of commissioned sound track work in the future.
Me! Well, most of it. I have a good bit of programming experience. I used to program video games for fun as a teenager. That's why I gravitate more
towards game sound tracks. I have more experience in that area. Some ready made scripts
I used include jCarousel, Yahoo Webplayer, and the Audio Jungle Audio Player. The graphics are a combination of my own work
as well as icons that I found around the web. I tried to make sure these icons were available for free use before using them, however if you created
one of these graphics and you do not want me to use it please contact me so I can remove it.
