Beatopia is a disruptive new platform that leases curated Beats that you won’t find anywhere else. Beatopia’s beats have unlimited rights and are available with a monthly or annual subscription.
Beatopia is for vocalists looking to create finished songs. Rappers and singers can find high quality instrumentals for building their own unique tracks. The songs can then be uploaded to online platforms like Soundcloud, Youtube, Instagram, TikTok, Spotify, Apple Music, and all other streaming services.
Beatopia is backed by Soundsnap, a worldwide leader in sound effects for TV and film with over 2 million registered users. The team consists of 14 music and technology nerds with diverse backgrounds – sound engineering, music production, video games development, and machine learning. The beats are provided by award winning producers.
The company that owns Beatopia is headquartered in Nicosia, Cyprus.

A PRO (Performing Rights Organization) is a publishing organization responsible for collecting performance royalties on behalf of songwriters and music publishers.
An IPI (Interested Party Information) number is an international identification number used to identify songwriters and publishers as rights holders.This number is usually anywhere between 9-11 digits long and is assigned to you by your PRO (Performing Right Organization).
Please note that an IPI number is a separate code from the member ID number or the account number assigned by a PRO.
You can find your IPI number by either logging into your online PRO account, contacting your PRO by phone and/or email, or by performing a search in the public repertoire on the website of your PRO. When searching your name in the public repertoire your unique IPI number will appear next to it.
Beatopia will not take any content ID profit from legitimate users of Beatopia. We are enrolled in a ‘route for review’ program where we can monitor the usage of our beats.
No, Beatopia does not take any publishing, performance, or writer’s share. Publishing is strictly split between the producer and the artists.
The split between the artist and producer is 50/50 unless otherwise stated in the license.
The master release is owned by both the artist and producer.
These claims are automatically generated when an uploaded video matches another video (or part of another video) in the content ID system. To avoid claims, please make sure you are uploading original content to Youtube.
Yes, the artist is responsible for registering the master tracks’ ‘final product’ to the appropriate PRO.
When browsing beats, each beat has a small arrow all the way to the right which allows you to see more info. Click on it and you will see the track’s BPM in the collapsed area.
Thats possible. Around 70% of the beats you hear on Beatopia are exclusive and cannot be found anywhere else. The rest are non-exclusive beats that can sometimes be found elsewhere.
Yes, all beats on our site are available for all users to be able to download on a non-exclusive basis. Many artists are likely to use each beat.
Yes, when downloading the beat, all of the stems will be made available. You will see this option when hitting the download button.
Our model is not optimized or set up yet for buying exclusive licenses. However, in rare cases (such as if a track becomes popular), Beatopia(or the producer that owns the beat) will negotiate an exclusive sale. Tracks typically cost over $3,000 USD. Message us at email@example.com with the details of which track you wish to purchase.
We encourage collaboration so feel free to reach out to producers. You can visit the producer’s page on Beatopia to see their info. In most cases, having the producer involved is not needed, because we provide the stems.
Yes! All users agree to credit the producer on the Master Recording in a form similar to what’s listed in Table A included in the license. This includes for the packaging (if any), any “single” embodying the Master Recording, metadata in connection with electronic transmissions, and in all print ads placed or controlled by you of one-half (1/2) page or larger that feature the Master Recording.
You need to credit the producer on Youtube, Soundcloud or IG. You can use ‘Prod. by Producer Name’ on the title or the top of the description of your track.
Beatopia has one main license for every track. Our simple licensing policy is what makes us so innovative and easy to use. You can find the license here.
In this case, Beatopia (or the producer that owns the beat) will need to negotiate an exclusive sale or license with the label.
We have a worry-free unlimited license. This means that there are no limitations on the amount of streams and you only need to pay royalties after 50,000 sales (downloads, not streams. The producer may receive performance rights, but these are not paid by you (the artist) but by streaming services, radio stations etc. A small number of our tracks may have a one million stream license (around 1% of tracks only). You can check the unique downloadable license for each track to see if this applies and/ or you can contact us if you reach 1 million streams.
You can purchase a subscription here, then search for beats via the search bar at the top, browse by category, or browse by tag. Once you find a sound you like, click the buttons to the right of the waveform preview to download.
To listen to a sound before downloading, click the play button to the left of the waveform.
This depends on your browser's preferences. To select where each sound is saved, make a right click (or ctrl+click on a Mac). Choose "save target as" or "save link as" to select a location on your hard drive. You can also go to the 'Download History' section of 'My Account' and re-download your beats from there.
At the moment, Monthly members cannot purchase their subscription again. Very soon, we intend to implement the ability to the pay to start a new month’s access, which will restart your monthly subscription from that date moving forward.

There are some greedy people trying to scrape our database by using auto-download scripts. These "bots" chew up bandwidth and slow down legitimate users. We know it's annoying, but it's the only way to slow them down.
Every beat in our library is legally purchased or licensed with contractual agreements with our producers and beatmakers.
You can only use them as part of a music video when they include your voice. You cannot use them as they are ‘on their own’ on a YouTube video. The vast majority of our beats are available for Sync and video licensing via our sister website Soundsnap.com.
