Add A New Beat

Add A New Beat

In order to add a new beat to your inventory, you need to upload the tagged version of your music, the untagged version (which will be delivered after purchase), and a teaser image. Make sure these items are prepared before you begin the process. You will also need to provide various "classification" details about your beat in order to correctly categorize your music.

Once a beat is added to your inventory, you can then configure advanced options for the beat such as what purchase options are available, and which delivery files should be delivered with various licenses.
