Downloading on Artlist is quick and easy with an annual subscription or a free Trial account. Once you're signed in, click on the downward arrow icon - found on the track line or song page - and the icon will change to yellow. You’ll also see the number of songs/sounds increase in the shopping cart at the top of the page. You can have up to 40 songs and 100 SFX in your cart per day. When you’re ready to download, click on the numbered cart and a pop-up will appear showing you the media you’ve selected (Tip: be sure to check that you haven’t selected any songs or sounds more than once). When you’re ready to download, select Checkout. This will send download links to your email as well as to your Library and create your account’s unique license for use for each track and/or sound.

Your download history is one of the pages that can be found in your Library. Select the Library option in the top right corner of the page or select Library in the menu of options found next to the Artlist logo.

If a song has been downloaded, you will find it in your Library and the cart icon will remain yellow to indicate that the track is in your Download History. Additionally, near the download icon is a star. Select this option to add a song, album or artist to your favorites, which are also stored in your Library under Songs & Sounds.

The download links are sent to two locations - your email and the Download History. If 1of these options is not working, please try the 2ndoption. If you continue to have trouble, please check that you are using the most updated version of your browser and that you have a strong Internet connection. Additionally, some users have found that download speeds are vastly improved when they clear their cache or cookies. In the rare event that you are still having an issue, please contact us and we will help you get your downloads right away.

First, please make sure that you are checking the email account listed on the subscription, as the download email will be sent to this address. It’s also important to check your spam folder. If you still do not see the email, there’s no need to worry. You can also visit your Library and download the music from your Download History on the site. If the problem persists, our team is here to help

All your checked-out songs are available for download with an active yearly subscription, and any licensed songs downloaded and saved on your computer will be yours to use forever. However, once your account reverts to Trial you will no longer be able to download songs or licenses from the site.


We do! The Instrumental-only filter can be found in the filter options at the top of the track listing. This icon shows a microphone with a slash through it and is next to the Sort filter. When the filter is selected, the icon will turn yellow and the listing of tracks below will only feature instrumental songs. Select it again to turn the filter off.

Using AI, you can find similar songs or albums by visiting the Song Page or Album Page on the site. The easiest way to get there is by clicking on the song title or the album art of any track in the catalog. Once in this page, you will also be able to view the applied filters (Song Page) or full track listing (Album Page).

The newest songs on Artlist are marked with the “NEW” icon on the track line and can also be found by changing the sort filter from “Sort by Staff Picks” to “Sort by Newest”. When this is selected, the music will be listed with the most recently added songs and albums at the top.


Your individual song license can be found where the media is downloaded - in your email or in your Download History. Next to the song/SFX downloads, there are three buttons: L, MP3 and WAV. Select L to automatically download your individual song license .pdf.

Yes! We encourage our artists to send us the lyrics to their songs with Vocals and many of them do so. The lyrics can be found by hovering your mouse over the microphone icon on the track line or by visiting the Song Page. You can also search for songs by the lyrics using the search bar feature.
