App Track downloads takes Ages

This is usually to do with your internet connection. Make sure you have a decent connection to download music.  If it still takes time exit the program and try again,  once downloaded it can be played back without internet access.

App audio problems.

If your vocals do not sound as good as expected when using the app it is usually due to the way you have recorded it.
Change your volume settings, either turn up or turn down your device volume to get optimal results. Plug in a pair of headphones and rap into the mic on the headphones this will give you crisp clean vocals without the background noise

My Lyrics are not recording

Possible reasons for not recording:

The device has a problem with recording generally. Go to your device look for a voice recorder app which should already be on your device, record something and playback to make sure this can be done.

Insufficient memory on device. Check the amount of storage memory you have on your device, if it is nearing 90-100% Android OS will reject the recording. Remove some data to bring your available memory up and you will be able to record.

Folder named Demo Tape not created on device’s internal memory. On your device, at your initial folder when in the my files section please create a folder called Demo Tape . The folder path should be similar to the following -storage/emulated/0/Demo Tape
User does not play the beat first then press record. Press the white play button then press the red record button.

User is recording over the newly created track by pressing the red button too many times. After hearing the recording playback, go to the menu > Save Recording’ before proceeding.
Go to menu > My Demos to review your recordings.

Still not recording?
The app should record but in order for us to replicate your problem please give us the following details so we can attempt to resolve it.

Model of phone used.
What you are seeing when pressing record. Is the recording text displayed? Does the record button depress and the record text displayed but there simply is no sound?
Please let us know even if you can send a short video showing the problem.

Can I get a discount?

Yes you can. All our RapToBeats app users are automatically entitled to a discount. The discount code will be displayed in the online beats section or via our push services. If you don’t see any code just contact us we will help

What is a leased beat Exclusive etc?

Leased beat, once purchased can be used for making full tracks which can be sold a limited amount of times (3000 copies). The user cannot resale the instrumental beat on it’s own, you will need exclusive rights for that.

PREMIUM File delivered as a wav file with all the instruments as separate wave files. This is really for studio real artists who want to mix down the track with your vocals to industry standard quality.
