Don’t worry if you navigate away from the order summary page on your phone, you’ll be linked back to it in the email to get your files.
DO THE BEATS I PURCHASE COME WITH TAGS?
All beats come untagged EXCEPT for one ODXC producer tag at the beginning of the first drop. These are not removable on the MP3 and WAV leases. However, if you purchase a Tracked Out or Unlimited lease or the Exclusive Rights, you will have access to the beat stems and can thus manually remove the tag if necessary.
WHAT ARE STEMS?
Stems (also known as trackouts) are the individual audio files that make up a beat, meaning each sound within the beat will be sent as a separate high quality WAV audio file. Leases that include stems are ideal if you plan on recording your song in a professional studio and want to have full control over mixing each instrument around your vocals.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO LEASE A BEAT?
When you purchase a beat lease, you are simply buying the rights to use the beat in a limited and non-exclusive capacity. luke4pres retains full copyright ownership over the composition and is allowed to continuously sell non-exclusive licenses of that same beat to other artists until someone purchases the Exclusive Rights to the beat. At that point, the beat will be immediately removed from our beat store and ownership rights are granted to the purchaser.
WILL A BEAT BE REMOVED FROM THE BEAT STORE ONCE I PURCHASE IT?
Only if you purchase the Exclusive Rights to the beat. Otherwise, the beat will remain on the site for other artists to lease until someone purchases the Exclusive Rights.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I EXCEED THE STREAM/UNIT SALE LIMIT OF MY CURRENT LEASE?
You must upgrade your lease to the next tier by contacting us at email@example.com. The cost of the upgrade is simply the price of the new lease minus the amount you already paid for your original lease.
WHAT IF I PURCHASE A NON-EXCLUSIVE LICENSE AND THEN LATER ON, SOMEONE ELSE PURCHASES THE EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS?
The purchase of Exclusive Rights to a beat does not impact the status or validity of previous licensees so you do not need to remove your music from streaming services, social media, etc. for the full term of your lease agreement.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN UNLIMITED LICENSE AND AN EXCLUSIVE?
The usage rights are the same for both: you get unlimited sales, streams, etc. The difference is, if you purchase the Exclusive, the ownership rights to the beat are transferred to you and the beat is immediately removed from our beat store, never to be sold to another artist again. The Unlimited License is still non-exclusive, so even though you get the same usage rights as if you owned the Exclusive, the beat will remain in our beat store for others to lease or buy.
HOW MUCH ARE THE EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS TO A BEAT?
CAN I USE THE BEATS ON ODXC FOR MY PODCAST INTRO, YOUTUBE VIDEO, OR FACEBOOK AD?
Yes! All beats on ODXC can be used for all types of creative endeavors, not just songs. Normal streaming/view caps still apply (see pricing table on the homepage for more details on the limitations of each lease tier). Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have additional questions.
