You can use our Free and Members Downloads (the Master Recordings) for personal education, non-profit, non-monetised use. That means you can incorporate our Vocals with other samples and sounds in a New Recording and send it to Record Labels to see if they’re interested in a release.
Please respect our copyright and obtain a licence BEFORE releasing your New Recording to the download stores and streaming services, or on CD/Vinyl. Using unlicensed Samples for commercial use is Copyright Infringement. We use digital fingerprinting and audio forensic technologies to detect unlicensed use of our Sound Recordings.
