A lease is a limited version of a beat. If you buy a lease, the amount of copies you can sell with your finished song, the streams, and even files you get are limited. If you purchase the Standard Lease, for example, you’ll only be able to sell up to 1,500 copies of your finished song; you’ll also only get the mp3 mastered version of the beat; and being a lease, the beat may still be sold to other people. With Exclusive Rights, this won’t happen: you’ll get all the files to the beat (including stems); there will be no limitations; and the beat will not be sold to anyone else, from there on out.

Regardless of the license you purchase, you’ll always have to give credit to the producer – or producers when the instrumental(s) in question are a collaboration between ThePlanBeats and another producer. This credit must be given in written form – “Prod. by ThePlanBeats” – or, when not possible, in verbal form. This same rule applies to free (non-profit) instrumentals and custom beats.

Each lease will provide you with different files, considering each one has different limitations. A Standard Lease will provide you with the mastered MP3 of a beat; a Premium Lease will provide the WAV format; and the Trackout Lease, as the name suggests, will provide all the files, including the trackouts. The Exclusive Rights to a beat will also include all the files to a beat. With each purchase, you’ll receive a PDF file with the Contract that legally allows you to use the instrumental(s) commercially.

Free beats are mastered MP3 versions of a beat. These will most of the times include a voice tag at the beginning of the track. Although they are free, they are not to be used for any profitable purposes (paid live shows, albums /singles that will be sold, etc.). However, you may record a song to a free beat, and post it on YouTube or your social media, as long as credit is given to the producer(s).
