What is The Beat Stream?
The Beat Stream is your one stop solution to all of your career building needs. We provide up and coming artists with professional quality instrumentals, digital distribution with royalty tracking and content ID protection, all included in our monthly membership.
How does it work?
It’s simple. Once you sign-up through our membership portal, you’re in! As a member, you will have full access to all our entire catalog of professionally produced instrumentals. Download whichever beat(s) you like the most and record your track over it. Once you’re finished, we will do all of the heavy lifting and distribute your music to all of the major streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music. Members who use our distribution service will be guaranteed content ID protection on every song. So you never run the risk of having your music taken down or having any royalty disputes.
Do I own the beat? Is it a lease? Exclusive?
As a member of The Beat Stream, you do not own or have exclusivity to any of the beats you download. These downloads are considered leases in which The Beat Stream has given you permission, as a member, to use for your music.
What is the royalty split?
Because we are an artist centric platform, we created a system in which royalties are automatically tracked so that producers receive their fair share. All free distribution defaults to a 50-50 split of the royalties between artist and producer. Individual leases can be inquired about on a case by case basis. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info on individual leases.
If it’s a lease, does that mean other people can have the same beat?
Yes. The reason why leases are so affordable is because they are not exclusively sold, but rather, widely distributed. This does NOT mean you have to share royalties with any other artist that may be using the beat. Any content you distribute will be uniquely fingerprinted ensuring you have total protection over your content.
If I’m a member, will you distribute a song I make with a beat I didn’t get from The Beat Stream?
We cannot distribute tracks you made with non-Beat Stream beats because, in that situation, we cannot guarantee our content ID protection on your music. We can only guarantee the Content ID protection on content made with our music.
Our automatic content ID protection will flag and take down any of our content uploaded through another site. This is only in the interest of protecting our members.
Can I use the beat on my free project?
All members can use any of our material for promotional purposes for free. But any commercial use of a Beat Stream instrumental must go through our distribution services. Our automatic content ID protection will flag any of our content uploaded through another site.
How many beats can I download?
With the membership, you have instant access to the wav. files for the entire catalog and can download as many as you like. Be sure to check back often, we release new music every week. And nothing stays on the site forever.
How much does it cost?
The Beat Stream Platforms costs $19.99/Month. This included unlimited, free distribution of your music and free royalty tracking/payouts.
