  • Is it possible to purchase an exclusive license ?
    I am open to reasonable offers before considering an exclusive license. However, I advise against it as it tends to come with a significantly higher price tag. The terms of the license remain unchanged, except that only you and I can use the instrumental. This decision is not driven by a lack of desire for profit but rather a commitment to providing good service and assistance. Ultimately, the choice is yours to make.

  • Can I use content ID on the song I've created with the instrumental ?
    The YouTube Content ID system is flawed. The algorithm can’t tell the difference between two different songs when they both have the same instrumental. So you are unable to use Content ID for a leased beat. This means when releasing a song with a leased instrumental through Distrokid, Tunecore, CDbaby or any other digital distribution service, you can’t enable Content ID. Please disable Content ID when distributing your song through one of these distributors. simply for the reason that it creates mis-identification of songs and causes problems for artists. This is an industry wide problem. This is the same for all music licensing websites.
  • Are there any royalties or revenue-sharing involved ?
    Yes, the License Agreement stipulates that when your music generates more than 1,000,000 online audio streams, the Master Owner is entitled to receive 50% of the revenue. For less than 1,000,000 online audio streams, no payment is owed to the Master Owner. This rule is implemented to safeguard my own rights. Therefore, could you purchase the instrumental track at a reasonable cost? This rule serves as a precaution against scenarios where artists do not properly register their work with their distributor and rights registration company, including my contribution. In the event that their song, featuring my instrumental, achieves success, I will still maintain my entitlement to a portion of the royalties. However, this is contingent on your proper registration of the necessary information. Please make sure to register my name, Joel Renker, as a songwriter for the creation of the music for this song with your distributor and rights registration company. If all the necessary steps are meticulously followed, I will receive my rightful share of the royalties, and you will likewise receive your rightful share of the royalties without any additional effort or financial cost. Under such circumstances, this rule will no longer be applicable.
