How do I purchase beats?

Navigate to the player on the home page, then click "ADD" on the track(s) that you like. You then can choose your preferred license and complete your order via credit card or PayPal.

How are the beat(s) delivered to me?

Your beat(s) will be instantly available for download directly from the order summary page once you checkout and your payment has been processed. You will also receive a confirmation email with the download links.

How can I access the beat(s) I just purchased?

Download links to the beat files and license agreement will appear on your order summary page once you complete the checkout process. Additionally, an email will be sent to the address provided at checkout with the download links immediately after purchase. Be sure to check your spam folder if you don’t see the email right away. 

Are the beats still tagged when I buy a license?

Once, at the beginning of the song. Once you purchase a license, all other tags will be removed, regardless of which license you purchase.

Which payment methods do you accept?

We accept PayPal and credit card payments.

Once I purchase a beat, will it be removed from the beat store?

Only if you purchase the Exclusive Rights to the beat. If not, the beat will stay on the site for other artists to lease until someone buys the Exclusive Rights. If you're interested in acquiring the Exclusive Rights to a beat, click here to contact me.

Can I purchase beats from my mobile device?

Yes, but certain mobile devices can have compatibility issues when downloading the files directly to the phone. To be safe, download the files to your desktop or laptop using the link in the confirmation email you’ll receive after a successful checkout. Don’t worry if you navigate away from the order summary page on your phone, you’ll be linked back to it in the email to get your files.

What are stems?

Stems (also known as trackouts) are the individual audio files that make up a beat, meaning each sound within the beat will be sent as a separate high quality WAV audio file. Leases that include stems are ideal if you plan on recording your song in a professional studio and want to have full control over mixing each instrument around your vocals.

What does it mean to "lease" a beat?

When you purchase a beat lease, you are simply buying the rights to use the beat in a limited and non-exclusive capacity. Grenadier retains full copyright ownership over the composition and is allowed to continuously sell non-exclusive licenses of that same beat to other artists until someone purchases the Exclusive Rights to the beat. At that point, the beat will be immediately removed from our beat store and ownership rights are granted to the purchaser.

What happens if I exceed the streaming/unit sale limit of my current lease?

You must upgrade your lease to the next tier by contacting us. The cost of the upgrade is simply the price of the new lease minus the amount you already paid for your original lease.

What if I purchase a non-exclusive license and then later on, someone else purchases the exclusive rights?

The purchase of Exclusive Rights to a beat does not impact the status or validity of previous licenses, so you do not need to remove your music from streaming services, social media, etc. for the full term of your lease agreement.

What's the difference between an unlimited license and an exclusive?

The usage rights are the same for both: you get unlimited sales, streams, etc. The difference is if you purchase the Exclusive, the ownership rights to the beat are transferred to you and the beat is immediately removed from he beat store, never to be sold to another artist again. The Unlimited License is still non-exclusive, so even though you get the same usage rights as if you owned the Exclusive, the beat will remain in our beat store for others to lease or buy.

Can you make me a custom beat?

Yes, I make custom, exclusive beats. If you're interested, please let me know what you're looking for by filling out this contact form. The easiest way to do this is by providing an example of 2-3 songs/beats that are in the style that you're looking for, and any other details you think are important for me to know.

Once you reach out with that info, I will reach out to set up a call and see if we are a good fit.
