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.
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.
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. These are not copyright strikes and it is nothing to worry about, your videos will not be removed.
If you have licensed our Free Download or Members Download Sound Recordings for commercial use then you need to send us links so that we can white list your Youtube/Facebook videos.
