How do I protect my beats from online theft?

Worst thing that can happen to you as a producer is to realize that one or more of your beats have been transformed in a new product and used in commercial or non-commercial applications, without your knowledge or approval.



Your beat was practically stolen!  



Beat Thief


2 Ways your instrumentals can be stolen:

a) With a software that can download the beat directly from instrumental selling websites, beat stores or youtube. (many times after listening to a beat the mp3 file will remain in the browsers cache folder and can be simply copied without the need of additional software.

b) With sound recording software or devices.



So how do I protect my beats from thieves?

Simple. You use a VOICE TAG.


What is a Voice Tag?

The Voice Tag is an audio vocal recording a few seconds long designed specifically to be recorded on top of instrumentals. This creates a tagged version of your beat and it is this version that should be played back to the public, on beat stores. These audio recordings usually contain the name of the producer or their brand. The recording repeats itself over short intervals (10 – 30 sec). Also “DJ Dops” are occasionally used .

Why it’s important to use Tracked Out Files in Studio Recordings?

 Tracked Out files


“It is known that for making a successful musical piece, the quality of sound is very important.”



Many artists skip the most important part of a recording and that is the MIX/MASTER of the final song, they only use an MP3 file for the final mix, even though the beat is well balanced to the extent of composition and that of db intensity (under 0 db), an mp3 can never be properly mastered.


What’s an MP3 file?

MP3 (MPEG Audio Layer 3) is an audio coding format for digital audio, it uses a form of lossy data compression.

The main advantage was (and still is) the low disk space occupied, however the sound quality suffers after compression.


What’s TRACKED OUT Files

(Trackouts WAV’s)

It’s the process that exports all the sounds of instruments in a beat to individual audio files, usually WAV audio files 16-24 kbps.



What to choose: TRACKED WAV Files or MP3?

Whilst many new artists still use just an MP3 file for recording a song, they don’t know that the final mix master will suffer from all points of view: you will not be able to change the volume, the panning or to equalize each separate sound, also adding the verse and the chorus in a MP3 musical composition will be a torment for the audio engineer at the final mix/master, he won’t be able to modify the beat structure, the MP3 file being already compressed, and also the vocals will sit ON the beat, instead of INSIDE of it.


How do you send TRACKOUTS to Artists?

If in the past this was an issue due to the big size of the files, these where burned to CD’s and manually handed over to artists, nowadays these issues are totally gone.

Thanks to the Internet, these big files can be archived and sent directly to the end user in any corner of the world, without many issues. Now you can instantly send these files in just a few clicks.

To instantly send these big WAV files without the need of you to manually upload them on secure-less file-hosting servers, then send the link to the artist, we advise you to use a Flash/HTML5 player.



The upload of these archives can now be a play, you can upload them directly from your desktop with the
