All beats on the Sonic Murals website are licensed to the purchaser. “Licensing” beats means that you have full rights to use them according to the license terms. These terms include commercial use. However, ownership of beats is retained by Sonic Murals, Inc. and/or the individual producer(s) that created the beats. This is standard practice in the music production industry.
Yes! Sonic Murals does produce custom beats. These are original beats that are created exclusively for an artist, media company, etc. We take our time to produce the beat around an artist or media company’s melody, song idea, podcast or audiobook theme, etc. Click HERE to learn more about our custom beat service.
All of our beats include the individual producer’s name directly under the name of the beat on the beat purchase page. You must properly credit each producer as follows: Produced by (Producer’s Name) for Sonic Murals, Inc. If there is more than one producer, you must include all producer’s names.
For example, if the producer’s name is Mista Dre, the appropriate credit would be: Produced by Mista Dre for Sonic Murals, Inc.

A non-exclusive beat license gives the purchaser the right to use the beat in commercial projects based on the terms of the license. A beat that is licensed on a non-exclusive basis means the beat can also be licensed to other artists, etc. Multiple artists could simultaneously use the same beat under the non-exclusive license terms.
An exclusive beat license gives the licensee exclusive rights to use a beat in their commercial projects, based on the license terms. An exclusively licensed beat may have been licensed previously as non-exclusive. However, once exclusive rights are granted, no one else will be able to license that beat for the term of the exclusive license.
Anyone who licensed the beat on a non-exclusive basis prior to the exclusive license being purchased will still have the right to use the beat for the term of their non-exclusive license.

Stems are the individual components that make up a beat. The kick, snare, hi-hat, bass, 808, etc. are all examples of components of a beat.
When you purchase the stems, you are getting all of those components as separate files. This is ideal when you or your audio engineer want to have complete control over the mixes of your music. If you don’t have the stems, you can’t control the volume levels of the instruments within a beat.
No, you don’t need the stems. Our beats are pre-mixed so that you are able to record your vocals over them, and blend your vocals with the beat during mixdown by you or your audio engineer. However, you have no control of the individual volume levels of the instruments in a beat if you don’t have the stems.
While the majority of our beats have stems that will be downloaded upon the purchase of an exclusive license, or stem add-on, there are a rare few that do not have stems. If you encounter this, please email us at email@example.com.

If you cancel your membership plan, you will still retain your licenses for the beats that you have downloaded. The license will extend for its full term.

All of our beats are owned by Sonic Murals, Inc. and/or the individual producer(s) that created the beats. Therefore, while you have full claim to your lyrics/words and sound recording, you are not able to use any digital fingerprint or Content ID services for your songs that use our instrumentals.
