Beat Licensing

NON-EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS

In the event that someone buys exclusive rights to the beat you have leased, your rights shall stand and the beat is still yours to use only as stated in this License. The seller will not receive a royalty from the sale of records or downloads. You must however give full credit to the seller (FreakSonar) on all commercial recordings. Upon purchasing leasing rights, the seller still owns the beat(s) and the seller is able to resell the beat(s) to any other party until exclusive rights have been purchased.

Why does my project needs fresh ears?

After working on countless songs and albums, mastering engineers develop an acute sense of sonic and musical knowledge that is key to successful mastering. It’s also a huge plus that the mastering engineer wasn‘t there when you recorded and mixed your album. Hearing your songs for the first time, a fresh pair of ears can offer truly objective advice.

Why should I have my audio mastered?

Mastering is the final step in bringing your recording to its optimum potential. It gives your music the professional commercial quality necessary to compete nationally and globally. No matter if your audio is planned for radio, CD/cassette duplication, CDRom/DVD authoring or publishing to the world wide web, it must be mastered to take full advantage of the media in which it is to be released.

What is the difference between mixing and mastering?

Mixing is basically tinkering with everything you have recorded to complete your songs. You’ll do things like drop in effects, adjust fader, EQ your tracks and so on. Think of mixing as putting the puzzle together. You’re putting together the parts of what you have recorded, making sure everything hangs together right, and putting some finishing touches on things. When you’re done mixing your songs, you should pleased with the way the song sounds and feel confident that you don’t need to add anything musically.



Mastering is adding sparkle and shine to your music. In a very basic sense, when you master your album, you’re making sure that song one doesn’t blow out the speakers while song two is barely audible – in other words, you want the levels of the songs to be similar and you want a general sense of cohesiveness to your recording, It also add the finishing touches to the song to bring it to its highest poetntial, making as loud as possible without distorting and making the song sound big and strong while sounding wider and clearer to emerge you in its sound. No song should be without mastering!
