    Can I sell a beat with sampling?

    You cannot upload a beat with any copyrighted sampling to Watermelon. However, you can upload a beat with sampling whose copyright has expired (e.g. carol, classical music, etc.) or after clearing samples or Sample CDs.

    We would appreciate it if you understand that you cannot upload a beat when there can be copyright issues.

    Is there a specific instruction for uploading?
    1. Audio file format: You can upload a 320Kbps file for MP3, and a 48000Hz/24Bit file for WAV.
    2. Stem file for ‘Trackout Lease’ or ‘Exclusive’: We recommend you to send WAV files separately for each instrument. It is better to send the individual tracks for each instrument, such as piano, bass, drum, rx, etc., rather than to send all the tracks you have worked on. 
    3. Volume: It does not matter how loud your sound is, but it is better to consider a headroom when you send a beat.
    4. Signature Sound: It is better to send a beat with signature sound for protecting your copyright.
