No. All purchases made from us are non-exclusive. This means that DCQ still owns the rights and we will still be able to license it to other artists.
An MP3 file is a compressed audio file. To compress the file, audio quality is sacrificed. Compression can sometimes result in odd audio ‘artefacts’ that are detrimental to audio quality, particularly to higher frequencies. This audio inaccuracy means that MP3s are not suitable for pro audio work. A WAV file is an accurate, lossless format. This means that the format reproduced the recording accurately without losing audio quality due to the format itself. As a result, for studio recordings, mastering, and pro-audio applications, WAVs are an excellent format to work in.
Yes. Once the beat is purchased, you will receive the untagged files. So the MP3/WAV or the Tracked out WAV stems will be without the DCQBEATS voicetag.
I accept Paypal, major credit cards and bank-transfers. If you have a credit/debit-card or funds on your paypal-account, you can purchase beats through the paypal-shopping-cart on my sites.
I use samples in some of my beats. Most of them are royalty-free samples. This means that you don’t have to clear them before you use them on your album/mixtape. If you would like to know if a beat contains samples you can contact me anytime at [email protected] before you buy it.
Music purchased from the DCQ production music library is royalty free. This means that after paying a one-time fee, you can use the music you’ve purchased as many times as you wish (unlimited needle drops) for as long as you like in accordance with the terms stated in License. You never have to pay us any additional license fees based on usage.
No, the beats we post on our Youtube channel only are for non-commercial demo use. If you intend to make a profit off our beats, purchase a license in our store. Please be aware that re-selling our instrumentals without vocal recordings is not allowed in any case. We pursue cases like this legally on a regular basis.
We are aware of these extra credit card charges, but they do not come from us. DCQ never charges or receives any additional fees; the total amount you see on your screen when you purchase our products is the amount we receive. The extra fee on your statement is a “foreign transaction fee” charged by the bank that issued your credit card. A number of US banks have a policy of adding a fee to the transaction if the seller is located outside of the USA (we are located outside US), even if the purchase is made in US dollars. This fee varies between 0% and 3% depending on the credit card you are using. For bookkeeping purposes, this is considered as a bank service fee.
You receive a tagged, lower quality mp3 to use for non profit only. Purchase a lease for higher quality beats without tags. Any beat publicly released without a lease will be removed.
“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. I highly suggest the Premium License for a top-notch mix.
If a beat is removed, its exclusive rights were earned, and it cannot be resold.
