Beats For Sale

Frequently Asked Questions

We've been asked every question you can think of (and probably some you can't) so we decided to drop all the answers on to this page so you can get instant answers to your questions. Simply locate the question you have below, click on it, and the answer will immediately be shown.

The only beats that we offer exclusively (that are only sold to one person) are the ones on our Exclusive Beats page.

All our other beats listed on our Beats For Sale page are sold non-exclusively, meaning they can be sold to multiple people. However, you can still buy the full usage rights to these beats by purchasing the Tracked Out versions of them. The Tracked Out License Agreement grants you the full and unlimited rights to sell, distribute, perform and broadcast (TV, radio, Internet) the song you make with that beat, keeping all of the royalties.

Since our Tracked Out License Agreement offers the buyer the non-exclusive full usage rights to a beat, we are unable to offer these same beats exclusively. However, if the song you make with a Tracked Out beat becomes a hit and you would like us to stop selling it on our site, we will be willing to workout a deal.
No. When an exclusive beat is bought, it will no longer be available for sale or download, but it will remain on the website and be listed as "SOLD." When a non-exclusive beat is bought, it will remain on the website and can still be bought by others. The next question and answer will explain how the same beat can be bought by multiple people.
If two different people buy the same beat, they can still each copyright their own song they make with that beat, and sell, distribute, perform and broadcast that song, keeping all their own royalties.

When you purchase a beat from Jee Juh, the copyright for that beat alone still belongs to Jee Juh. However, the copyright for the song that you make with that beat, your lyrics combined with that beat, belongs to you. And with the rights granted to you by the Jee Juh license agreement, you are allowed to sell, distribute, perform and broadcast (TV, radio, Internet) that song, keeping all of the royalties.

Tracked out audio files, also called stems, are sub mixes of an instrumental. For example, an instrumental might have the four stems: Bass, Beat, Percussion, and Instruments. The Bass stem being the bass; the Beat stem being the kick and the snare; The Percussion stem being the hi-hats, shakers, and crash cymbals; and the Instruments stem being the strings, organs, and synths. All of these stems are the full duration of the instrumental and can be layered together to recreate the stereo mix of the original instrumental.

The reason for stems is that they allow for more precise fine tuning while mixing a song. For example, one can adjust the gain on the Bass without affecting the low end of the Cellos. Or you can mold the cymbals around the vocals without affecting the punch of the snare. Although Jee Juh beats come already professionally mixed, depending on the particular artist's vocals or the sound of the rest of their album, adjustments may want to be made in mastering. With stems these adjustments can be made much more accurately and easily.
They are all listed here: Tracked Out Audio Files
If a beat does not have a WAV or Tracked Out version available, this only means that those audio files for that have not been prepared and uploaded to Jee Juh's server yet. We are currently working to prepare and upload as many WAV and Tracked Out files as we can, but if there is a certain one that you would like made available sooner than the others, please make a request: WAV/Tracked Out Request
The process for buying a beat is pretty simple. First you'll find the beat you want to buy in the player. If you know the title of the beat, you can search for it using the search box at the top right of the player. Once you've found the beat you want to buy, you'll see the following three options to choose from:

MP3 file - $19.95
WAV file - $39.95
Tracked Out - $79.95

Click the checkbox for the version you want. Once you've selected all of the beats you want to buy, click the orange "Add to Cart" button. This will take you to a PayPal page that says, "Choose a way to pay." Here you can log into your PayPal account if you have one, or if you don't have a PayPal account you can just use your debit or credit card without ever having to sign in to PayPal. To do this, just choose the option below the PayPal login that says, "Don't have a PayPal account? Pay with your debit or credit card as a PayPal guest." Then follow the instructions within PayPal to make your payment.

Once you've completed your payment, you'll see an orange button on your order confirmation page that says "Download Beat(s)." Clicking this button will take you to your download page where you will be able to download your beats and your license agreements. We will also email you a link to this download page so that you can access it at any time in the future if you ever need to download your files again.
Yes, you can chop, loop, speed up, slow down, add extra sounds, and change up the beat as much as you want as long as you still give full production credit to the original Jee Juh producer.
In all projects where any part of a Jee Juh beat is used, be sure to give credit in one of the following formats:

"Produced by (Producer's Full Name)"
"Beat by (Producer's Full Name)"
"Original Music by (Producer's Full Name)"
Our newest beats are made using the industry-standard DAWs, Pro Tools or Ableton Live. Some of our earliest beats were made using Propellerhead's Reason.
No. All Jee Juh beats are made using copyright-free or licensed sounds, so you don't have to worry about clearing any samples.
At the moment we are not signing artists.
At the moment we aren't offering recording services, but finding a way to record your lyrics is pretty easy. Here are some options...
  1. Find a Local Recording Studio
    Although it can be expensive, you'll get a professional sounding recording that will give you an edge over your competition. Try searching Google for local recording studios then call them up and find out what they have to offer.

  2. Use Your School's Recording Studios
    If you are attending college, your school will probably have some kind of recording facility in its music building. Most campus recording studios are limited to certain students or classes, but ask the staff about availability. If you can get access to these rooms, it will usually be free.

  3. Ask a Friend or Family Member
    If you know any friends or family members that have home recording setups, or can help you record your lyrics. See if they'd be interested in helping you out.

  4. Build Your Own Recording Studio
    Setting up a home studio usually just takes a good mic and an AD/DA converter like the Mbox to record the audio into your computer. The Mbox, or whatever AD/DA converter you choose, will usually come with free recording software (like Pro Tools) that you can use to mix and edit your vocals.

    Not sure which mic to get, here are some recommendations:

At the moment we aren't looking for any additional producers, but we may be adding more in the future. If we do, we will probably hold a tryout and choose from the best, so stay in touch and keep making beats.

Jee as in the letter "G," and Juh as in the beginning of the word jump. Like "yee yuh!" but with J's, "Jee Juh!"
Hailing from Santa Cruz, California, Jee Juh producers Mike Lightner and Elliot Waite have been friends since childhood. Their interest in music grew steadily, culminating in the formation of a band with two other high school friends. Originally influenced by rock music, Mike played the bass, and Elliot the drums. Their musical interests began to evolve as they started to experiment with digital production, and a new passion for hip hop encouraged them to produce their own original beats and record songs. Both continued experimenting with digital recording while they pursued undergraduate degrees. Academics, though, were a distraction from their true passion for music, and they both left college to pursue music full time. Putting their gained experience and entrepreneurial aspirations together after moving back home to Santa Cruz, JeeJuh.com was created with an aim to help and inspire their customers through their music. Jee Juh's growth and success have exploded every since!
