I applied for a license file but I haven't had it so far...We do currently ask for users to allow 24-48 hours for their license file because we deal with these manually and check everything with each application. We often supply them in a matter of a few hours but it does depend on what time you apply and which time zone you are in as much as anything. We might well automate this for customers who we already know to speed things up in future and generally improve the system to make it quicker but no less accurate.
If however you don't have your license file after an extended period of time it may be the result of the increasing blight of spam filtering. Feel free to contact us to check on progress and supply as many e-mail addresses as possible and we'll re-send any license files we already sent to all these addresses to try and ensure you get it through OK at the second attempt.

How can I use the sounds I have bought from AMG?The exact license terms can vary slightly from title to title so there's not one straight answer to this question really. The first thing to do is to check the license terms printed on the product's artwork and sometimes repeated on the CD itself and also on PDF's on the disc too.
Other points to note:
1. Our earlier releases basically have terms which usually come down to 'you can use the samples in your music as you have bought the library'. The more recent releases have a written license that's a bit more involved but ultimately says the same thing.
2. The written license requires you to supply a UPN (Unique Product Number) with your written license application. If you have bought direct from AMG you can quote the invoice number instead. Purchases via download will basically include the agreement of the written license during the purchase process.
3. All sounds supplied as DEMO should not be used for anything except for auditioning purposes. If you wish to use them in your songs you should purchase the appropriate CD before doing so.
4. License terms are unnecessarily complicated to ensure they are effective. Will will waive these terms to any appropriately licensed user upon request however they cannot under any circumstances be waived unless a user has previously completed their license and agreed to be bound by these terms.
5. Some titles have specific terms that vary from the standard that was necessary for their production. Two prime examples are Vince Clarke's Lucky Bastard and the Black II Black Killer Vocals series.
