No. All tracks are completely original.
“Trackouts” aka “stems” are the individual audio files that a particular beat is made of. For example – kick, hi hat, clap, bass, etc. These are needed for a top-quality mix, as the engineer can mix these sounds around your particular vocals.
“Produced by Blue Road Music” works just fine. A link to our website is appreciated, but not mandatory.
Yes, you can. Please review your earnings limit depending on which license you purchased. A chart is displayed on the homepage of our site. As well, from there, you can view official sample agreements.
Our non-exclusive licenses (Basic & Premium) are 100% royalty-free, but last two years.
As for “Exclusive” & “Custom Beat” licenses, you must pay 3% of net profits (from Master use) to the producer. As well, publishing will be split 25/75 (Us/You). These licenses last for a lifetime, and prevent anyone else from ever licensing the same beat after you.
Our non-exclusive purchases are sent instantly upon payment. Please allow up to 24 hrs for receipt of exclusive purchases.
If you purchase a non-exclusive license, the beat will not be removed from the site. If you make an exclusive purchase then yes, the beat will be removed.
Yes – this goes for all licenses.
The producer will retain all copyright ownership of the beats. However, if you purchase exclusive rights or a custom beat, you will retain copyright ownership of the Sound Recording (Masters).
For non-exclusive purchases, you should file a “joint copyright” for the “song” that you make to the beats, listing you as a contributor to lyrics & composition (melody/flow). However, you must contact us before doing so as you will need to add the producer’s information for contribution as a composer as well. Please note that ‘non-exclusive’ licenses last two years. After-which, the copyright will be contractually void.
In a non-exclusive license case, even though the producer is on the copyright (which he must be since he created the music), the producer will NOT take/request any back-end royalties (as noted in all non-exclusive agreements).
If you’re serious about your career, we highly suggest purchasing exclusive rights, or getting a custom beat made in order to remove all limitations.
If a beat is removed, most likely its exclusive rights were bought. Once a beat is bought exclusively, it cannot be resold. Rarely, we will remove older tracks that no longer meet our standards, as our standards constantly grow & change.
