Becoming an artist takes hard work but for those wanting to skip a few steps, here are some tips on how to get free indie type beats.
Getting free indie type beats online can be more challenging than some people think. There are obviously a few solutions to getting few beats and the most prominent one would be for the artist to make it themselves. However, this would require the artist to not only learn how to make the beats but also get into the mindset of the producer who is more concerned with the quality of the produced track instead of the actual song itself. Making a hit song is never easy.
This can be quite a tough switch from the mind of an artist to the mind of a producer, and this is more reason for the artist to source out the perfect beat online. One big problem, however, is not every particular track is free to use due to copyright laws and artists can’t just randomly get a few tracks online.
These tracks have to be purchased if they are for sale and have to have the permission of the producer for the artist to use the track. There’s actually a trick to get the perfect beats for either free or affordably. Here are the following steps.
- Search on YouTube
Obviously, YouTube might have everything that an artist could need from free beats to other beats that have great potential. The artist would need to type “FREE FOR PROFIT INDIE TYPE BEATS” on the search bar.
- Selecting the right indie type beats
Of course, not everything might sound right and it’s definitely up to the artist to get the perfect indie type beats that have FREE FOR PROFIT in the name. It’s also very important to check the description as to which extent are the indie type beats free to use.
- Contact the producer
Sometimes, the rights of the FREE FOR PROFIT indie type beats only cover a couple of platforms and have an extent. This is why it is very important to contact the producer to find out up to what extent it is. Purchasing the beats if needed is also something that should be done especially if the beat has great potential.
There are a few beats that are already complete and just need the artist to add vocals while others can be used as raw material. Most of the time, these free for profit indie type beats only ask for producer recognition but it really depends on the description. It’s also worth noting that the agreement could change anytime from a free beat to a purchased beat.
Here are a few examples:
