Generous Beat licensing terms

What is beat licensing?

Exactly what do I mean when I say beat licensing? Also know as online beat licensing, it’s the process of acquiring the legal rights to use a pre-recorded song as the background of your own project. Buying beats online has been around for many years and is becoming more and more popular. The licensing (leasing) process for Beats is very straightforward. The producer (I) can create a beat and upload it to my store, and artists (you) can purchase the beat directly from the store.

A license agreement will be provided to you in exchange for your purchase. You are granted certain rights in this document when you create and distribute a song. The license you purchase determines this (see below).

The license agreement is legal proof that I have given you permission to use the beat (music) in your new song.

 

Beat licensing

Producer typically charge for their beats

It is common misconception that producers offer their beats for free to artists, but in reality producers typically charge for their beats. Free beats are really for promotional uses only. This is why they usually come with music producer tags on them. The music producer provides the beat and the artist records the vocals and mix it to create a song.

Producers get royalties from these deals, which in some cases can include performance royalties as well as mechanical royalties.

Non exclusive beat licensing

The most popular form of licensing is a non exclusive beat license. Many producers including myself have different tier non exclusive licenses. Ranging from a basic lease (starter) to the unlimited lease (Professional). The majority of artists will find this type of contract the most useful as it is relatively cheap and still always you to stream your song online.

It’s critical to note that under a non- exclusive beat license , the same beat may be licensed to numerous artists. So be aware that you may hear several songs using the same music that you leased.

When you purchase a non exclusive rights it means that you are given permission to record and release your song on your own but you cannot resell the beat to anyone else. 

Exclusive beat licensing

The buyer of an exclusive license is able to prevent other artists from recording a song using the instrumental. After you purchase an exclusive license, the song will be permanently removed from the beat store.

Those who purchased non-exclusive licenses before you purchased your exclusive license can still release their music until the terms of the license have expired.

 

It is important to understand the meaning of exclusive in the context of beat licening. An exclusive license does not give you the exclusive ownership of the master recording (sound recording), but does give you particularly leasing rights such as the right to record and release your song using the sound recording (beat).

Beats with exclusive licenses are often more expensive than those with non-exclusive licenses, but they also provide greater security and flexibility.

Free beat Vs Licensed lease beat

You can use free beats to see if your song works on one of my beats, if you want to release it, all you have to do is purchase a license to use the song. Remember, you can NOT monetize your free beat, you need a license to do so.

We offer different leases which give you different ways to monetize your song. If your song does better than expected, you can also upgrade your license.
