FAQ
Why would I need a license?
A license is needed if you want to use the music for anything else than just listening for your pleasure. Typical uses are
  • freestyling over a beat
  • licensing music for use in TV or for a movie
  • remixing or use audio samples
What are the license options and what are the differences between those?
We offer up to 5 license templates (Basic, Premium, Track Out, Unlimited, Exclusive) and it's up to the artist which ones he/she wants to make available. Each license comes with different perks. In general, the higher the price, the better the perks.
You can click on each feature on the left side of the comparison chart above to learn more about each one.
When will I get the track I purchased?
You can download all related files immediately after your purchase. We also email you a one-time download link for a download later.
How can I remove the audio tag from the track?
A "tagged beat" is a demonstration version of an instrumental that contains distinct audio watermarks that typically play throughout the entire track. The purpose of a producer tagging his/her instrumental is to prevent piracy and to encourage serious recording artists to purchase a license.
To get a tag-free audio please make sure you purchase a license which features "untagged audio".
I purchased a $1 download, why is the beat still tagged?
Beats purchased for $1 in our store are meant for streaming and demo use only, just like downloads from iTunes store or Amazon music.
To license a beat without audio tag and to use in a professional manner please buy a license from this page. Usually those are $25 and up.
What is a stem / trackout file?
A Stem file is an audio file that contains a track split into several musical elements: A drums stem, a bassline stem, a harmony stem, and a lead stem for example.
The Stem file also usually includes the original stereo master of the track for standard playback.
Why would I need a stem / trackout file?
A trackout file gives you much better control. Imagine you rap over a beat and you realize the percussions take the focus away from your vocals. With a trackout file you can simply tone down the percussion and the focus is now on the vocals. With a trackout file you have much more flexibility and a whole different level of control.

Band/artist history
Tears of Technology was surrounded by music his entire life. He watched his father play the tenor sax in bands across America. By the time he was six, he was playing the piano. When his before teen years came along, he was playing the alto saxophone in elementary school. By the time he was 20 he was mixing on the wheels of steel at various clubs in the New Orleans area. These 10 years helped produce a skill and a style he calls 504. A style only defined in the city of New Orleans. A style unique and unlike the rest. Tears of Technology appears on the Jive Electro release of Hardknox's single "Attitude" and the 42 Records compilation "Energized" with his hit track "XES 2.0". His producing experience comes from 15 years of turntablism mixing to the last 7 years of creating beats and grooves from scratch. An old school influence is definitely noted in this new school sound. Tears of Technology produces full compositional tracks from his heart & inner soul. A beast of skills with hot remixes, new sounds and fresh grooves that test dance music's boundaries.
