    Best practices? I’ve read an audio watermark should be through out the entire track so people can scoop up a loop and use it for themselves. Any words of advice? This watermarking thing is new to me.

    hey philip this audio watermark is also known as a voice tag, or a beat tag. Like you mentioned it can help keep your track safe from people trying to steal it. It’s also useful for branding and getting your name out there, for example you can give away a small handful of free beats away to your mailing list or on your youtube channel with you beat tag so when people record a song to it potential fans will also hear your tag and know who made that beat. They are pretty affordable, I had one custom made for about $20 if I’m not mistaken. If you are going to use one I’d recommend you only use it in the beginning of your song and maybe in the beginning of your verses, otherwise it can get annoying and drive away your customers,
    hope this helps!

    Hey Philip, I would recommend using your vocal tags through the entire track, but not every 10 seconds, something like every 20-30 seconds is a good range in my opinion.

    And one last point, I don’t recommend the very long tags such as “This beat was made by so and so, get your beats now at http://www.soandso.com” – keep it short, just use your name or possibly, your name and a few other words.

    You want people to be able to listen to your beats all the way through.
