What is a license and why should I purchase one?
A license is a legally binding mechanical license agreement which permits you to create one master recording to an instrumental and distribute it worldwide within terms of the agreement. The license will enable you to register a “℗” (Sound Recording Copyright) for your Master Recording. Every lease contains the highest quality MP3 & WAV files without the tags, along with the agreements. You will not need to worry about any copyright infringements or owed mechanical royalties to the producer. Mechanical profits are totally exclusive to you from the song you create. For example, if you were to buy the “Basic” License for $29.95, then put your recorded song on iTunes with the price set at $0.99. You are licensed to distribute up to 2,500 copies, which means you would rake in a return of $2445.05!
How can I use an instrumental for non-profit purposes?
You can use downloads from iTunes, Amazon and Google Play, or any tagged beats for non-profit, non-commercial projects. The beats on all digital stores are not tagged at all and they are high quality. You DO NOT have the right to copyright the sound recording nor the right to distribute the sound recording into any form of sale. You also do not have the right to commercially release, broadcast or perform your recording. You cannot synchronize the recording into ANY forms of visual media (Music Videos, etc). You can however upload a non-profit promotional YouTube video with your recording over still pictures, or with you performing to the beat in a recorded video. The audio of a non-profit recorded video must be recorded through the camera’s microphone. Monetization is strictly prohibited and credit in the form of audio or text must be given.
When and where will I receive files when I have made a purchase?
All purchases are automated and you will receive the stated files of the license instantly, along with the License Agreement stating your name, date and the name of the beat acquired. Ensure your payment email inbox is accessible and also check your junk / spam folder for the download links. If you cannot find the download link, or if there are any errors in your purchase; please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I upgrade my License?
Yes, if you have already purchased a license and you feel like you need to expand your sales or earning on your song, you can upgrade your license for a discounted price. Please email email@example.com to upgrade.
I just want beats for personal listening, where can I get them from?
If you want beats for personal listening purposes, you can purchase them from iTunes, Amazon and Google Play. The beats on all of these digital stores are untagged and high quality, perfect for endless inspiration to your ears!
Do you create custom beats?
Custom beats may be created upon request. The cost of a custom beat is $500, half of which will be placed as deposit. The amount due ($250) will be paid when the beat is finished to your standard. When requesting a custom beat; please include Genre, BPM, Instruments, Key, Deadline, and 2 MP3 files or links of any songs (including your own). Explain your preferences in as much detail as possible, direction is important and you must know what you want. There is an extra charge of $30 each time the beat has to be edited after it is declared finished. You will receive full track-outs and FloTheProducer will still own the composition only.
Can I get a refund after purchase?
You are not eligible to any refunds or returns after purchase due to possible exploitation and copying of the media files.
