FAQ

How do i buy a beat exclusively?

The only beats that we offer exclusively (that are only sold to one person) are the ones on our Exclusive Beats page.

All our other beats listed on our Beats For Sale page are sold non-exclusively, meaning they can be sold to multiple people. However, you can still buy the full usage rights to these beats by purchasing the Tracked Out versions of them. The Tracked Out License Agreement grants you the full and unlimited rights to sell, distribute, perform and broadcast (TV, radio, Internet) the song you make with that beat, keeping all of the royalties.

Since our Tracked Out License Agreement offers the buyer the non-exclusive full usage rights to a beat, we are unable to offer these same beats exclusively. However, if the song you make with a Tracked Out beat becomes a hit and you would like us to stop selling it on our site, we will be willing to workout a deal.

Are beats removed from the website once bought?

No. When an exclusive beat is bought, it will no longer be available for sale or download, but it will remain on the website and be listed as “SOLD.” When a non-exclusive beat is bought, it will remain on the website and can still be bought by others. The next question and answer will explain how the same beat can be bought by multiple people.

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 We Sell Beats, the copyright for that beat alone still belongs to We Sell Beats. 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 We Sell Beats 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.
