❓ How Do I Buy A Beat
💡 The process for buying a beat is pretty simple. First you'll find the beat you want to buy in the player. If you know the title of the beat, you can search for it using the search box at the top left of the player. Once you've found the beat you want to buy, you'll see the following three options to choose from:
MP3 file - $19.95
WAV file - $34.95
Tracked Out - $79.95
Click the checkbox for the version you want. Once you've selected all of the beats you want to buy, click the "Add to Cart" button. This will take you to a PayPal page that says, "Choose a way to pay." Here you can log into your PayPal account if you have one, or if you don't have a PayPal account you can just use your debit or credit card without ever having to sign in to PayPal. To do this, just choose the option below the PayPal login that says, "Don't have a PayPal account? Pay with your debit or credit card as a PayPal guest." Then follow the instructions within PayPal to make your payment.
Once you've completed your payment, you'll receive an email with a order confirmation page that says "Download Beat(s)." Clicking this button will take you to your download page where you will be able to download your beats and your license agreements. We will also email you a link to this download page so that you can access it at any time in the future if you ever need to download your files again.
❓ What are the differences between the MP3, WAV, and Tracked Out versions
❓ What if two different people buy the same beat
💡 If two different people buy the same beat, they can still each copyright their own song they make with that beat, and sell, distribute, perform and broadcast that song, keeping all their own royalties.
When you purchase a beat from Beatz.Lowkey, the copyright for that beat alone still belongs to Beatz.Lowkey. However, the copyright for the song that you make with that beat, your lyrics combined with that beat, belongs to you. And with the rights granted to you by the Beatz.Lowkey license agreement, you are allowed to sell, distribute, perform and broadcast (TV, radio, Internet) that song, keeping all of the royalties.
❓ What are tracked out audio files
💡 Tracked out audio files, also called stems, are sub mixes of an instrumental. For example, an instrumental might have the four stems: Bass, Beat, Percussion, and Instruments. The Bass stem being the bass; the Beat stem being the kick and the snare; The Percussion stem being the hi-hats, shakers, and crash cymbals; and the Instruments stem being the strings, organs, and synths. All of these stems are the full duration of the instrumental and can be layered together to recreate the stereo mix of the original instrumental.
The reason for stems is that they allow for more precise fine tuning while mixing a song. For example, one can adjust the gain on the Bass without affecting the low end of the Cellos. Or you can mold the cymbals around the vocals without affecting the punch of the snare. Although Jee Juh beats come already professionally mixed, depending on the particular artist's vocals or the sound of the rest of their album, adjustments may want to be made in mastering. With stems these adjustments can be made much more accurately and easily.
❓ Can I change up the beat after I buy it
💡 Yes, you can chop, loop, speed up, slow down, add extra sounds, and change up the beat as much as you want as long as you still give full production credit to Beatz.Lowkey
