Frequently Asked Questions
While leasing rights (also known as non-exclusive rights) have restrictions in number of allowed sales units, earnings, etc., and can be sold to multiple persons at the same time, exclusive rights is the only license type, allowing unlimited use on any medium without a license expiration limit! After an exclusive rights license has been sold, the according beat will become unavailable for any type of licensing.
Can i still use beats i have leased after exclusive rights have been sold? Yes. Selling exclusive rights does not affect any previously sold licenses.
I purchase exclusive rights. may the beat be leased again? has it been leased before? Once a beat is sold exclusively, we are no longer allowed to sell a license to that beat, except non-exclusive license-upgrades to active non-exclusive license-owners . On the other hand it may be possible that a beat has been leased to several persons before it has been sold exclusively.
The price is in USD Dollars.
Why? Player and Beats are managed through the BeatStars platform, a US company. That is why you will find the Beat Player and the following steps in English, in addition to having the dollar as a currency. If you pay with your PayPal account, PayPal will convert dollars to your currency automatically, depending on the exchange rate in effect at the time. If you pay with a credit card, the PayPal platform will offer you your own currency conversion (RECOMMENDED) or you can choose to pay directly in dollars with your card (this option is NOT RECOMMENDED since depending on the bank that issued your card they can charge fees considerably elevated).

From now on I will centralize everything in my Beatstars profile (no longer boring emails or ending up in the spam tray). In this profile we can communicate by direct message whenever you want and most importantly: Here I will offer my best monthly discounts to the people who support me the most.
What do you have to do to get those discounts?
I will reward with discount codes the people that appear in my top ¨coments¨ ¨resposts¨ ¨likes¨ ¨plays¨, etc …
At the end of each month I will check this Top and if you show up, I will write a direct message to give you the discount code that you can use the following month. If you appear in the TOP all year you will have a discount all year! Sounds good, does not it?
So, if you want to be the first to listen to my new beats and enjoy unique discounts that you will not find on my other platforms, follow me HERE
I wait for you there!
How i do apply a coupon code?
If you have any valid coupon code, you can apply the code on the checkout page in the field ‘Coupon Code’ (last step before payment). Click ‘Apply Coupon’ and the discount rate will be applied to the total amount of all items selected and also on bundle deals. You need to use the coupon before checking out via PayPal or Credit Card!
Clicking on the button “full license” located below each license on the pricing table you will find all the detailed information about the license agreement, the rights and the conditions for the use of the instrumentals.
One day today it is very easy to record the audio that sounds on a web, so to avoid undue copies have been interspersed in the voices that prevent the use of the instrumentals. When buying a license, the files that are among these not voices.
What do you mean when you say “Without Tag”? : It means the beat will be delivered without the voice that sounds over the sample in the music player.
Delivery is immediate. When making the payment you will be redirected to a screen from which you will be able to download the beats and the contract. In addition, you will receive an email with the receipt of your purchase and a button to download the files. If you can not see this email in your inbox, it will probably be located in the Junk / Spam folder.
You can pay using a Credit/Debit card or Paypal. Thus all payments will be managed automatically without the need for manual checks.
Yes, payments are made by Paypal, the safest payment platform. You will notice that the price appears in Dollars USD but don´t worry about it, Paypal offers you the automatic conversion to your currency.
No. All sales of digital downloadable products are final and we can not offer a refund for something we can not recover.
As long as you have purchased a license to a beat, you are allowed to do changes to the beat length, mixing, sounds, etc. This excludes tagged beats/free demo downloads.
No. You are not allowed to re-sell the beats or transfer your license-rights to the beats to a third person.
Yes, if you own a non-exclusive license, you can upgrade your license to any higher license type if exclusive rights are still available and have not been sold yet. If exclusive rights have already been sold to the beats, and are no longer available, you can still upgrade your non-exclusive license to a higher non-exclusive license at any time! Please contact us via email, as for license upgrades, we will credit the amount you have already paid, and deduct it from the price for the desired license.
All downloads (except Beats that are free to use) can only be used for non-profit purposes to evaluate proposals before purchasing the license.
Having Track Out is ideal for mixing and recording at a studio.You can not only edit the structure to suit your song as you want but also is the best option when mixing and getting a more professional sound.
Do you want to make money with your Youtube video? : Then you need the “Professional”, “Unlimited” or “Exclusive” License. Basic license do not qualify for monetization. To prevent the use of the instrumentals on Youtube without their corresponding license, all the beats are housed in a manager of “Content ID”.
What Youtube´s “Content ID” does is scan youtube videos for audio material produced by Gradozero and automatically sends a copyright claim, which blocks your videos from monetization temporarily. This claim is more a notification and will NOT harm your channel or video, nor does it force you to take down the video(s), the only thing it does, is disable the monetization option temporarily. Your video will keep playing without any other limitations.
Anyone using free downloads and tagged demo downloads in videos on youtube can ignore this copyright notification as it doesn’t stop your video from playing and monetization wouldn’t be allowed for non-licensed beats at all (if monetization is desired, you can purchase a “Professional” rights license or higher if beat is still available).
This is the exact message you might receive: Due to a copyright claim, you are no longer monetizing the following YouTube video. It is still playable on YouTube, but the copyright owner could choose to show ads on it. It may therefore be possible that you receive a copyright claim on youtube videos, even if you own a “Professional”, “Unlimited” or “Exclusive” license. So, please follow these instructions:
IMPORTANT! If you have a “Professional”, “Unlimited” or “Exclusive” license, please send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org including your full name, link(s) to the corresponding video(s) and email address used for the purchase. Once received the mail we will contact the “Content ID” manager to withdraw this claim and restore monetization for your video within the next 24 hours.
Using this “Content ID” program is the only way we can assure that only people with an appropriate beat-license are monetizing their videos rightfully and legally on youtube.
If you no longer find the Beat you were looking for, it is because its exclusive license has been sold and it has been removed from the platform. If you heard that Beat in an artist’s song but you can not find it on the Web, it is because that Beat was created in an exclusive and personalized way for the artist.
Do you want a Beat that nobody has ever leased, heard or had? Then do not miss the service of Custom Beats (access by clicking HERE).
- Once we receive the first part of the payment, we start working (1).
- From the first melody, each new step that advances in the creation of the beat will be shown so you can give the go-ahead and thus continue advancing.
- Once the creation and the structure of the instruments are finished, we will go through the revisions to finalize details (2).
- Finally, once the second part of the payment has been received, the mixed Beat and tracks are delivered so that you can record your song and upload it to all platforms (3).
(1) If you change your mind in the middle of the creation process, the first part of the payment will not be refunded.
(2) Choose carefully the review plan that best suits you, because if you end up making more changes than agreed, this will have an extra cost.
(3) Remember to mention the producer when you upload the song. It is established by contract and failure to comply may result in an economic penalty.

Proper credit is given as follows in written form: ‘ft. Gradozero‘, ‘Beat by Gradozero’ or ‘Prod. Gradozero’. Is very important to mention the producer when you upload your song. It is established by contract and failure to comply will result in an economic penalty.
No. Publishing rights do not affect digital sales at all, but rather affect physical sales, which is generated in platforms such as SGAE, ASCAP, BMI, etc. Therefore when the exclusive license says “50% publication rights” means that, in addition to what you earn with digital sales, you can earn half of what you generate on the platforms mentioned above, which does not happen with the other licenses (in non-exclusive licenses your percentage of publication rights is 0%)
THE LICENSEE IS EXPRESSLY PROHIBITED FROM REGISTERING THE BEAT AND/OR NEW SONG WITH ANY CONTENT IDENTIFICATION SYSTEM, SERVICE PROVIDER, MUSIC DISTRIBUTOR, RECORD LABEL OR DIGITAL AGGREGATOR (for example: TuneCore or CDBaby, and any other provider of user-generated content identification services). The purpose of this restriction is to prevent you from receiving a copyright infringement take down notice from a third party who also received a non-exclusive license to use the Beat in a New Song. The Beat has already been tagged for Content Identification (as that term is used in the music industry) by Producer as a pre-emptive measure to protect all interested parties in the New Song
