Please read our custom beat production FAQ below:
What genres do you produce?
We produce mainly hip-hop, trap & r&b but we can do anything in the urban music space upon request. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org before purchasing anything that doesn't sound similar to the beats we already have listed.
What software do you use to make beats?
We use a variety of different Digital Audio Workstations & Plugins. The ones we most commonly use are Logic Pro X, FL Studio, Ableton & the WAVES plugins.
How does the process work?
First, we will ask you to pick your favorite beat from our existing portfolio or show us a beat from a popular producer you really like. Then, show us a song thatyou have previously recorded.
If this is your first time recording, we may ask for a video of you freestyling.
From there, we will craft a custom instrumental based upon your specific genre, taste, needs, rapping style, flow, rhythm, influences & requests.
Can I sell the finished song on Spotify?
Yes, after you have recorded on the beat you can sell it online, in stores, at shows & can even have it played on the radio.
When I start making money, do I owe youroyalties or a percentage of any kind?
No. You keep 100% of the royalties.
Do I own the copyright?
Yes, you are the sole owner of the sound recording once you pay us & receive the files.
How do you keep your rates so low for custom beats compared to other producers I see charging over $250 minimum for exclusive beats?
We can offer this unique service at a lower price due to work we've put into curating a large network of multi-genre music producers who 1) value helping independent artists get their start in the industry, 2) value getting paid consistently for their work rather than sitting on beats waiting for the highest bidder & 3) value above all just being able to make music for a living.
What if I don't like what you send me?
We offer 1 major revision, then it costs $10 a revision after that. We do this to keep our costs lower for everyone because we almost always fix any problems you have with the beat on the first revision.
Will you mix & master the beat?
Yes, the beat will be mixed & mastered to the commercial standard & ready to record vocals on upon delivery.
Will you mix & master my finished song?
As a part of this service - no. We do offer separate mixing & mastering services here.
Do I get the stems - and how are the files delivered?
Yes, you get a track out of every instrument in a .ZIP file, an .MP3 & a high-quality .WAV file emailed to you upon completion of the beat.
Do I have to tag Off Topic Entertainment as the producer or production team?
Not in the title of the track, but in the credits.
When do I pay you?
You pay us upfront (this allows us to pay our network of producers faster so that they can just focus on delivering you the perfect beat).
How do I pay you?
Just add this service to your cart along with any other add-ons (such as mixing & mastering) & check out. We take debit, credit & PayPal.
