FAQ
Why would I need a license?
A license is needed if you want to use the music for anything else than just listening for your pleasure. Typical uses are
  • freestyling over a beat
  • licensing music for use in TV or for a movie
  • remixing or use audio samples
What are the license options and what are the differences between those?
We offer up to 5 license templates (Basic, Premium, Track Out, Unlimited, Exclusive) and it's up to the artist which ones he/she wants to make available. Each license comes with different perks. In general, the higher the price, the better the perks.
You can click on each feature on the left side of the comparison chart above to learn more about each one.
When will I get the track I purchased?
You can download all related files immediately after your purchase. We also email you a one-time download link for a download later.
How can I remove the audio tag from the track?
A "tagged beat" is a demonstration version of an instrumental that contains distinct audio watermarks that typically play throughout the entire track. The purpose of a producer tagging his/her instrumental is to prevent piracy and to encourage serious recording artists to purchase a license.
To get a tag-free audio please make sure you purchase a license which features "untagged audio".
I purchased a $1 download, why is the beat still tagged?
Beats purchased for $1 in our store are meant for streaming and demo use only, just like downloads from iTunes store or Amazon music.
To license a beat without audio tag and to use in a professional manner please buy a license from this page. Usually those are $25 and up.
What is a stem / trackout file?
A Stem file is an audio file that contains a track split into several musical elements: A drums stem, a bassline stem, a harmony stem, and a lead stem for example.
The Stem file also usually includes the original stereo master of the track for standard playback.
Why would I need a stem / trackout file?
A trackout file gives you much better control. Imagine you rap over a beat and you realize the percussions take the focus away from your vocals. With a trackout file you can simply tone down the percussion and the focus is now on the vocals. With a trackout file you have much more flexibility and a whole different level of control.
A good country song will have a story. A lot of Frank's songs are crafted around good stories. Inspired by great musicians like James Taylor, Dave Mason, and Steve Winwood, Frank has developed his own songwriting style that combines elements of soft rock, country, Jazz, R&B and pop. Franks song "Ridin' on That Train" was originally published by NBT Publishing in West Virginia and included in the CD "Ride The Train." Many other artists have recorded his original songs, which range from upbeat rock tunes to mellow ballads. Frank is a registered ASCAP writer and publisher. Frank has been singing all his life. He was inspired by the balladers of the 50's, especially Eddie Fisher. Once Frank discovered James Taylor in the 70s, he knew he wanted to write his own music, and he has been writing and performing ever since. His CD's are available for purchase, and his songs and albums can be downloaded from the Music Store as well as CDBaby, iTunes, Spotify and many more.
