If you upload your beats on beatstars.com and publish them, the Beatstars system will ask you if you would like to distribute them for free on Spotify, YouTube and some other platforms. I think this is a great feature but what if you have sold a couple of beats exclusively? They still online on Spotify and YouTube!! I had this problem some weeks ago. I had no idea how to delete this beats and wrote the beatstars support 3 times but I got no answer. I told them my problem and that I need help cause I dont know how to remove this beats from Spotify and YouTube. I have no idea why I got no reply, cause Beatstars always had a really good customer support in the past. Maybe they just also don’t know how to remove this beats from Spotify cause this Spotify feature is pretty new. Normally all beats are automatically protected with a Beatstars voicetag after producers uploaded them on Beatstars. But all through Beatstars distributed beats on Spotify and YouTube are without any voicetag! So take care producers…
Rocbattle changed a lot of terms in the last few month. Rocbattle takes now about 40%-80% percent commission!!! They currently takes a 40% commission for Gold and Silver member sales and 80% percent commission from Bronze member sales! They also have the right to change beat prices now for all of your beats without asking you! They change the beat prices for all beats on rocbattle (just for example) to only $11.99. If you would have a paid Bronze (Free) or Silver member account ($6,95/month) you only would earn about $2,39 ($11,99:100×20) and with a Gold ($12,95/month) member subscription only about $7,19 ($11,99:100X60)! You can’t do anything against this (except delete your beats+profile on Rocbattle). That’s the highest commission i´ve ever seen in the whole online beat selling business. Rocbattle still a good website and they are a lot of customers online who wanna buy beats. For producers it still a good place to sell beats or just to having fun with other producers in beat battles. But you have to know the fact that Rocbattle will takes the half control over your beats on their platform.
