FAQ FOR SELLER

HOW DO I SELL TRACKS?

The steps are very easy, you just need to sign up and then click on sell tracks from your account dashboard. Once you submit your tracks it will go under approval section. Then EDM GHOST PRODUCING staff will check the quality of the track. If we find your track(s) suitable to be released commercially, we will mark it as approved and you will find your track on our platform shortly.

HOW DO I SUBMIT MY TRACK?

Make a single .rar or .zip of the following files

  • Every sub-track should be rendered for the whole length of the track ( in WAV 44.1kHz, 24 bit).
  • Include Every sub-track named as Kick, Top kick, Bass, Hihat1, Hihat2, Clap, Snare, Percussion. (It is not sufficient to only fill in numbers).
  • Include all Midi files (Midi Type 1) of all important elements used, e.g. lead/, Drops/Bass/Melodies etc.
  • Include, a properly mastered and unmastered version in Wav (16bit and 44.1khz) and MP3 (320kbps).
  • If you use a vocal from a sample pack, you’re required to put this in your track description. As a note file, also include the instrumental version in WAV and MP3 format.
  • Minimal track length must be 3.30 minutes (except Dubstep, Trap and Future Bass which are only 3:00 minutes).

DO I HAVE RIGHTS TO THE TRACK ONCE THE TRACK IS SOLD?

No, When the buyer purchases your track, Buyer will become the (master)owner of the track. The buyer will become the owner of the phonogram. The buyer is allowed to change the artist name and title, Purchase of the track gives the buyer permission to remix or alter the track.

CAN I USE SAMPLES?

No. We are very adamant about this. All tracks have to be unique – sending multiple tracks with the same melody is not allowed. So the use of templates, construction kits and leads/melody’s/drops or midi from a sample pack are prohibited. Of course, it’s allowed to use a kick, hi-hat, snare, FX, etc.

CAN I TELL ANYONE THAT I WAS THE ORIGINAL PRODUCER OF THE TRACK?

No. This is a violation of the Copy Right Release agreement and needs to stay only between the parties involved.

CAN MY TRACK BE ON MY SOUNDCLOUD AT THE SAM TIME AS EDM GHOST PRODUCING?

No. We cannot take tracks that are displayed ANYWHERE publicly. This is against our terms and conditions as it violates the Non-Disclosure Agreement.

CAN I REMOVE MY TRACK IF I DON'T WANT TO SELL IT ANYMORE?

Yes. You can remove your track at any time as long as it is not currently in the process of being purchased.

WHY DOES MY TRACK TAKE UP TO 36-72 HOURS TO APPEAR ON THE SITE?

We allow our staff 36-72 hours to review incoming submissions to ensure they meet our quality requirements. After your track gets approved we will begin the further process and your track will be visible on the site shortly.

DO ALL TRACKS AND VOCALS HAVE TO BE EXCLUSIVE?

Yes, of course you can. If someone wants to sell their music via your account, that is allowed. The original artist/label/author must give you permission in writing to sell. Always ensure that – on request – you can show proof, either that you are the owner, or that you are allowed to offer the track by the original producer. You can proof that you are the owner by providing evidence that your work is registered with a copyright organisation (such as BumaStemra, PRS or SABAM). Demonstrating that you are allowed to sell someone else’s music is simpler: you need to have a written and duly signed agreement between yourself and that third person. Beware: a verbal agreement is most of the times not sufficient according to the law!

HOW MUCH MONEY WILL I MAKE BY SELLING TRACKS?

Uploading and presenting your music via EDM GHOST PRODUCING is free of charge. EDM GHOST PRODUCING doesn’t start earning money until you actually sell a track. Everybody starts with a remittance of 36.4% but you can end up only paying 30% – a unique situation in our business. So: the more you sell, the less you pay to EDM GHOST PRODUCING.

WHEN DO I GET PAID AND INTO WHICH ACCOUNT?

Once the track is sold we usually give 7 business days of time to the buyer to check whether the track is already published anywhere on the web, if everything is clear you will get the funds in your PayPal account on the 8th day.

CAN I SELL SAME MUSIC/VOCALS THROUGH MULTIPLE GHOST PRODUCTION WEBSITES?

No, this is not allowed. Why? Because it would be weird if a buyer could acquire the same track on two or more different sites. If you don’t stick to this rule, you will be banned from EDM GHOST PRODUCING.

HOW MANY TRACKS/VOCALS CAN I SELL THROUGH THIS PLATFORM?

Uploading on EDM GHOST PRODUCING is free. You can sell as many tracks as you want, as long as the quality remains high.
