FAQ

What is the difference between a “Standard” lease a “Premium/ Extended” lease?

On our home page, when hovering over the “Checkout” tab (at the top of page) you will find a link directly to the Beat Licensing Agreement. There will be a detailed description of the differences between both.

The Beat Licensing Agreement can also be found (In the form of a link) at your checkout page, in your final step before  “Accepting” the agreement. Hope this helps!

What is the difference between Exclusive rights and Non-Exclusive rights License(Leasing)?

A Non Exclusive License/ Lease beat is a beat that the producer offers anyone the right to use after they purchase it on Thurotype.com. A Non Exclusive beat is a beat where the producer is able to sell its rights multiple times. This means even though you buy the rights to use the beat, you are not the only entity who has the right to use this beat.

An Exclusive Beat is a beat that only one person can purchase and own the rights to use it. If an Exclusive beat is sold on Thurotype.com, the buyer gains rights to use to beat. The buyer of the beat is the only person or company allowed to use this beat. The buyer gains the sole rights to use the beat, but cannot re sell the purchased beat. If the beat is used for commercial purposes with a record label with gross revenue of over $1,000,000, the producer must receive credit for the beat, unless agreed upon otherwise by the two parties.

After I ‘Lease’ purchase a beat, is it removed from the site?

No. By purchasing a ‘Lease’ or non-exclusive license you don’t become the owner of the purchased beat.
A non-exclusive license can be sold multiple times, unlike an exclusive license.
Exclusive rights, however, are sold to only one person and, as soon as the purchase
has been made, we remove the beat from our site.

Is it possible to purchase beats in WAV format?

Yes, it is.
Just select the “Extended Lease” & you will receive a WAV file.

After I purchase, when do receive my beat(s)?

You can download your beat(s) ASAP (As Soon As ya Purchase). You will receive a link to download when you are redirected to the purchase confirmation page. Also, a download link will be emailed to you.

What happens if two people buy non-exclusive rights for the same beat?

The non-exclusive license (leasing) is sufficiently limited, and the possibility of the two songs with the
same beat ever crossing paths is equivalent to zero. All limitations can be eliminated
by purchasing exclusive rights (which are sold for one person only).

There is an option to buy “tracked-out” versions of beats. What does “tracked-out” mean, exactly?

It means that every detail of the beat (the kick drum, the snare drum, hi-hats, instruments, samples, etc.)
will each come -as it’s own separate high-quality WAV audio file.
This way, by having all the individual instrument tracks, you or your audio engineer will have a lot more control over editing, mixing and mastering the beat and the song.

Can I use the beat for a profitable project?

Yes. A non-exclusive license can be used for one profitable project (an album, a mixtape, a commercial etc.)
with a sales limit of 5,000 copies (Standard lease), 15,000 copies (Extended lease) & 45,000 copies (Premium lease).
It can also be used for an unlimited number of live shows or performances!
