Free Downloads

Our Free Downloads can be used for non-profit promotion & educational use but need to be licensed for commercial use. There are a number of restrictions on what you can do with them so you’re not “free to do whatever you want with them”. All Acapellas available from freevocals.com are licensed, not sold by freevocals.com, to you, the Licensee. freevocals.com remains at all times either the owner or Licensor of the Acapellas. freevocals.com grants to you, the Licensee through the EULA’s (End User Licence Agreements) certain limited, non‐exclusive worldwide rights.

Please read the terms and conditions carefully. If you do not understand or do not agree to the End User Licence Agreements (EULA’s) then you may not download and use the acapellas.

Non-profit use is where there is no potential to make money. For example, if you upload your track to Soundcloud to showcase your work, or upload it to Youtube (without advertising monetization). You can send your track incorporating our vocal recordings (but not the standalone vocal recording) to Record Labels to see if they are interested in commercially releasing your remix. 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 there is no potential to make money.

With either of these uses, https://freevocals.com MUST be credited in the description when the remix 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.

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 acapellas from our website.

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.

Musical Composition:

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.

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.

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.

Our Free and Royalty Free Downloads are provided on a non-exclusive basis. This means that anyone can download them and licence them for commercial use, subject to our terms and conditions.

If you use our non-exclusive Free or Royalty Free Downloads, the production incorporating the vocal recording (your track) will be exclusive to you but the stand alone vocal recording (the acapella) remains non-exclusive. This means that other people will still be able to download and licence the acapella for commercial use.

Our vocalists only allow their name to be used on certain tracks. This could be because they only want to be associated with certain styles/genres, or there are issues with the quality of the production, or the production has explicit content.
