What is non-profit or educational use?

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.

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.
