Question for beat makers: Let’s say DistroKid built a site where you can upload beats and then receive 50% of royalties from any track that uses it. Would you also want an up-front fee from anyone who downloads your beat, to weed out people who aren’t serious? How much? Thoughts?— DistroKid ([@DistroKid](https://twitter.com/DistroKid)) December 28, 2017
I’m cool with any sort of idea that makes it easy to put music up for licensing.
Don’t know that I’d want to charge an upfront fee per se; maybe an advance? Credited against future royalties?
