SELLING GHOST PRODUCTIONS FAQ

PRODUCERS FAQ

 

Can I Sell Ghost Productions of Tracks That I Have Previously Released?

Yup! You sure can! Feel free to upload all of your old releases. As long as you've still got rights to the actual Master Recordings, you're good to go. (You will often retain rights to your recordings even if released with a label, but make sure you do before you upload them to the site).

Do My Tracks Need To Be Professional Studio Quality?

They do need to be at a decent level of quality near pro standards. Many of our customers are getting their productions signed to major record labels and building sizeable followings, so please make sure to aim for the highest standard possible for you.

 

How Do I Get Paid? How Much Do I Get Paid?

You get paid automatically after every sale. Just set up PayPal payouts at the “PROFILE” tab in your Artist Account by clicking on “Payment Details” and entering your PayPal email. That’s it! 

Producers on the site get 70% of their net sales, and are paid-out 5 business days from the date of sale.

No. However we do recommend that you register your work with a songwriter’s association.

Canadians can register with SOCAN for free - www.socan.com

Americans can register with BMI for free - www.bmi.com

International Producers, google your country's songwriting association. 

How Much Should I Sell My Ghost Productions For?

If you want to sell quickly, we recommend that you price your Ghost Exclusives somewhere between $199 - $399.

When you go up to the $400 - $600 range you’ll want to make sure that you’ve got a really strong professional project.

You’re welcome to try selling your Ghost Exclusives up to a maximum of $999... however, the most expensive Production we’ve ever sold was $699.

What’s An Exclusive Ghost Production?

An Exclusive Ghost Production is only sold one time to one buyer. This buyer will be able to release, promote, and monetize the Exclusive Track however they want. They own it Exclusively.

What Are Non-Exclusive Ghost Productions?

Non-Exclusive Ghost Productions are sold an unlimited amount of times to an unlimited amount of buyers. These buyers do not own your stems or MIDI or anything. They are simply paying for a license to use your audio files in a "new song" that they produce or release.

Can I Remove My Audio Uploads From Your Site If I Want To?

Yup! You sure can! You can edit or delete your uploads from the site whenever you want from your Artist Account Dashboard.

Can I Contact The People That Buy My Ghost Productions?

You sure can! If you go to the RECENT SALES tab at the bottom-middle of your artist dashboard, just click on VIEW MORE HERE, then click on the 3 blue dots to the right of one of your SALES, and scroll down to see all of the Buyer’s Information. They will also receive your contact info. We encourage strong communication between our Sellers and Buyers. Since we're strictly a marketplace, any agreements or collaborations between the seller and the buyer are not our responsibility.

Does Vokaal Own My Music? Does Vokaal Have Control Of My Music Career?

Not even a little bit. Vokaal is simply a marketplace that provides you with the tools to sell your musical works to our large customer base. Our mission is to help talented people like you get paid for doing what you love. We have zero interest in owning your creations. We’re here to support you in the selling of your musical works, and by signing up for an artist account you're giving us permission to help you make that happen.

How Do I Get My Profile On The TOP100 Producers Section?

You’ll get your own profile page as soon as you’ve sold at least one Ghost Production on the site. We just don’t want our customers to have to sort through a bunch of non-selling producers.
