Can I make money off of the songs I make with SOULTIES beats like sell them on iTunes or Amazon?
Yes, as long as you purchase the Digital or Business License. You may not sell any copies of your song in any form with a Starter license.
Do I have to pay the producer a percentage of the royalties I accrue?
Nope. However, depending on your reach and career level sharing royalties is one of the factors that could dramatically lower the price for exclusives
Can I use the song I make to a SOULTIES beat in a youtube video?
Do you use samples?
Usually we don't. However, it could be that every now and then there's a beat that contains a sample. If so, those beats are marked with an (**) at the end of the name of that specific beat. Clearing a sample is the responsibility of the buyer. However, some of us have officially released songs with indie-labels that contained third party samples and nobody cared, simply because it is not generating the amount of money yet that would make it worth the time of a lawyer.
How do I credit the producer?
If you really love the beat, we'd be grateful if you would simply credit us the same way you'd do it when making a song with one of your homies: [Your Name] feat. [Soulties] - [name of the song]. However, it'd be fine if you
How does the copyright situation work?
SOULTIES RECORDS will retain all copyright ownership of the instrumentals. For non-exclusive purchases, you should file a “joint copyright” for the “song” that you make to the instrumental, 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.
How long does it take for me to receive my purchase?
All non-exclusive purchases are sent instantly upon payment. Please allow up to 24 hrs for receipt of exclusive purchases.
What are trackouts, or stems?
“Trackouts” or tracked out audio files, aka “stems” are the separate audio files the make up a particular instrumental. For instance, the kick, snare, synth, piano, and so on are all separate audio files that comprise the instrumental. These are useful for high-end mixing projects where the engineer may need to customize the mix of the instrumental around your vocals. We highly suggest the Gold License for a top-notch mix.
Will the beat be removed from the website once I purchase it?
If you do not earn the exclusive license, no, the beat will not be removed from the site.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept all major debit/credit cards (Mastercard, Visa, American Express, Discover). All transactions are made via Paypal. You do not have to have a Paypal account to make your transactions.
