HOW DO I BUY A BEAT EXCLUSIVELY?
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.
WHAT IF TWO DIFFERENT PEOPLE BUY THE SAME BEAT?
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 Let That Boy cook, the copyright for that beat alone still belongs to Let That Boy cook. 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 Let That Boy cook license agreement, you are allowed to sell, distribute, perform and broadcast (TV, radio, Internet) that song, keeping all of the royalties.
CAN I CHANGE UP THE BEAT AFTER I BUY IT?
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 Let That Boy cook producer.
HOW DO I GIVE CREDIT TO THE PRODUCER?
In all projects where any part of a Letthatboycook 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)"
Mixing & Mastering
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MIXING AND MASTERING?
Mixing is basically tinkering with everything you have recorded to complete your songs. We'll do things like drop in effects, adjust fader, EQ your tracks and so on. Think of mixing as putting the puzzle together. We're putting together the parts of what you have recorded, making sure everything hangs together right, and putting some finishing touches on things. When we're done mixing your songs, you should be pleased with the way the song sounds and feel confident that you don't need to add anything musically. Mastering is the process of taking a recording and enhancing it to its fullest potential. It’s the fine-tuning that makes your track sound as “big” and as “clear” as possible without compromising the original feel of the song. This also makes the album, as a whole, sound unified.When you send us your audio for mastering services, your tracks will be analyzed by an experienced mastering engineer in one of our acoustically treated mastering studio. After we get an overall impression of the existing sound balance, your project is then professionally mastered using an appropriate chain of top drawer analog and digital mastering tools.

WHAT IS A ISRC AND HOW DO I OBTAIN ONE?
Please Note: ISRC is NOT required to use our services. The International Standard Recording Code (ISRC) is an international standard code for uniquely identifying sound recordings and music video recordings. The code was developed by the recording industry in conjunction with the ISO technical committee 46, subcommittee 9 (TC 46/SC 9), which codified the standard as ISO 3901 in 1986, and updated it in 2001. An ISRC code identifies a particular recording, not the work (composition and lyrical content) itself. Therefore, different recordings, edits, and remixes of the same work should each have their own ISRC code. Works are identified by ISWC codes. Recordings remastered without significant audio-quality changes should retain their existing ISRC codes, but the threshold is left to the discretion of the record company. The provision of ISRCs is overseen by appointed national ISRC agencies. These national ISRC agencies issue codes directly to the public and may also utilize authorized ISRC Managers to issue ISRCs. In the United States, the appointed agency is RIAA. ISRC codes can be obtained directly from RIAA for an administrative fee ($80 at time of this publication) or from a commercial ISRC manager. Only in territories where there is no national ISRC agency does IFPI provide codes to users.
