How does it work?
The cost to licence this vocal recording for commercial use is:
You can sell your track on any digital download store or streaming service (iTunes, Amazon, Spotify etc) or release it on CD/Vinyl. You will not have to pay us any royalties from sales of your track (the master recording incorporating the vocal recording).
View the SAMPLE AGREEMENT
You may need this type of licence if you already have a publisher and they need to control 100% of the publishing for the master recording. If you do not have a publisher that carries out publishing activities (pitching your music for Film/TV sync, registering your tracks with the Performing Rights Organisations (PRS etc), distributing your Public Performance Royalties etc) then you probably do not need this licence.
Generally, you do not need this type of licence if you are just releasing your track with a Record Label or Distributor and do not have a Publisher.
Public Performance Royalties are paid to writers and publishers directly by the Performing Rights Organisations (PRS etc) when compositions are played on radio or in public. These royalties are completely separate from Master Recording Royalties (sales, downloads & streams).
You can sell your track on any digital download store or streaming service (iTunes, Amazon, Spotify etc) or release it on CD/Vinyl. You will not have to pay us any royalties from sales of your track (the master recording incorporating the vocal recording) and your publisher can register you as 100% composer of the master recording.

Please read the End User Licence Agreement
Yes our Sound Recordings can be modified or edited. Our Sound Recordings must be combined with other types of samples or sounds to effectively form a new composition or derivative work, in a manner that is clear and distinct from the isolated Sound Recordings themselves. You can’t use the Sound Recordings in isolation or distribute the Sound Recordings independently of a new composition or derivative work.
Yes you can but you need to apply for a commercial licence before you can arrange a commercial release – You can apply here – freevocals.com/licensing
If you have created a new composition or derivative work and just intend to upload it for non-monetized, non-profit promotion then yes, you need to include a link to https://freevocals.com in the track description.
You must not feature our artists name in a non-profit, non-monetized track title or description. We will only consider feature requests on certain commercial releases.
If you don’t feature a vocalists name in your track title and do include a link to our website in the description, then you don’t need permission to upload a non-monetized, non-profit track.
For Pro Studio, Home Studio and Bedroom Studio Members, the limit applies to a set number of products each month. You can download each product multiple times and it won’t count against your monthly limit.
For Free Members, each click of the download button counts as one download against your monthly download limit. This includes the individual download page and your account downloads section. You can download the same file multiple times if necessary but it will count against your limit.
Royalty Free Downloads do not count towards your monthly download limit, you can download these files multiple times after purchasing them.
Non-profit use does not generate any royalties or revenue. For example, if you upload your track to Soundcloud to showcase your work, or upload it to Youtube (without advertising monetization) this is considered non-profit use. You can send a composition or derivative work incorporating our Sound Recordings (but not the isolated Sound Recordings) to Record Labels to see if they are interested in commercially releasing your track. If the label is interested in a commercial release, you or the record label must apply for a licence before it is released.
Educational use is where private individuals use our vocal recordings to learn and practice music production and no royalties or revenue are generated by this activity.
With either of these uses, https://freevocals.com MUST be credited in the description when the track is uploaded (e.g. “Acapella downloaded from https://freevocals.com“) or you can include a link to the acapella that you downloaded from our website.
We use digital fingerprinting including Youtube Content ID and Facebook Copyright Identification to protect our Free Download and Members Download Sound Recordings from unlicensed use and you may receive automated copyright claims against videos uploaded to Youtube or Facebook.

If you have obtained a licence from us to incorporate the Sound Recordings in a commercial monetized Production, no problem, we will whitelist your videos and remove any copyright claims. Fill out this form or email email@example.com

EULA stands for End User Licence Agreement. This agreement outlines the terms and conditions and restrictions that you (the end user) agree to when you download the sound recordings from our website.
Non-exclusive means that anyone can download and licence the sound recordings, subject to our terms and conditions. The sound recordings are not removed from the website after they have been downloaded or licensed.
A music publisher (or publishing company) is responsible for ensuring that songwriters and composers receive payment when their compositions are used commercially. Through an agreement called a publishing contract, a songwriter or composer “assigns” the copyright of their composition to a publishing company. In return, the company licenses compositions, helps monitor where compositions are used, collects royalties and distributes them to the composers. They also secure commissions for music and promote existing compositions to recording artists, film and television. Composition copyright is separate from Master recording copyright.
Master recording copyright is typically owned by a record label or record company.
A record label or record company is a brand or trademark associated with the marketing of music recordings and music videos. They coordinate the production, manufacture, distribution, marketing and promotion of sound recordings and music videos; conduct talent scouting and development of new artists (“artists and repertoire” or “A&R”); and maintain contracts with recording artists and their managers.
ISRC (International Standard Recording Codes) are assigned by distributors and record labels to uniquely identify sound recordings. If you release a track independently through a distributor (e.g. Distrokid) they will assign the ISRC code shortly after you upload the track then the code will appear in your dashboard. If a record label releases a track they will assign an ISRC code which you can ask them to confirm.
Commercial use is anything where there is potential to make money, such as selling on stores like iTunes, Amazon, Beatport or streaming on services like Spotify. This also includes any advertising monetization such as Youtube adverts or promoting a paid product, even if our sound recordings aren’t sold as part of the product – Apply for a licence BEFORE you release your track – freevocals.com/licensing
Youtube Content ID is a digital fingerprinting system that we use to manage and administer our copyright content and identify unauthorised commercial use of our Sound Recordings.
You may receive automated copyright claims against videos incorporating our Free Download or Members Download Sound Recordings uploaded to Youtube. These are not copyright strikes and it is nothing to worry about, your videos will not be removed.
If you have obtained a licence from us to incorporate the Sound Recordings in a commercial monetized Production, no problem, we will white-list your videos and remove any copyright claims. Just email links to the videos – firstname.lastname@example.org
Copyright is a legal right that grants the creator of an original work exclusive rights for its use and distribution. Free Vocals have a publishing agreement with the vocalists and composers and is either the owner or Licensor of the vocal recordings and sound recordings available to download from this website. We own and control the copyright.
There are two separate components of any recording of a musical work: the composition copyright and the sound recording copyright. In most cases, our vocalists and composers have both composed and performed the vocal recordings and sound recordings. They are both the author and performer.
The musical composition consists of the written music including any accompanying words. The author of a musical composition is the composer and/or the lyricist. A musical composition can be in the form of sheet music, lyrics sheet or in a sound recording.
The sound recording results from combining a series of sounds into a medium that can be played back. The author of a sound recording is the performer(s) whose performance is fixed, the record producer/engineer who processes the sounds and arranges them in the final recording, or both. Copyright in a sound recording is not the same as copyright in the underlying musical composition.
