Our Free Downloads and Members 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.

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.

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.

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.
