The Ultimate List of Free Vocal Samples in 2023
Download 3,384 Free Vocal Samples
“The best things in life are free… and $19.95”
— Billy Mays
Get hyped, because I just compiled 3,384+ free vocal samples for you.
Why does that matter?
Well, yes — vocals provide something for listeners to latch on to, helping your music become more memorable, catchier, and commercially viable.
But vocal samples can also...
- Act as a cheat code for your next song (...structuring and arranging your next song will be 10x easier with vocals)
- Act as inspiration, helping you get ideas going so you don't have to start from scratch (...which saves you time and effort)
- Act as a placeholder for your next single (...simply produce your next song with a vocal sample or acapella, and then remove it when you shop around for an official vocalist)
Which is exactly why this article now exists.
Not gonna lie, this blog post is pretty epic — it gathers the 17 best free vocal packs on the internet today and organizes them by size, sample count, and what makes them unique...
And the best part? You don’t need to break the bank by buying tons of sample packs or hiring session singers. There are plenty of free vocal samples out there that you can flex your creativity on.
But who has time to scour the internet for the best vocal samples, right?We’ve done that for you so you can get back to making great music.
