How to download beats from BeatStars? BeatStars is a platform where beatmakers can upload their beats so that they can be viewed and downloaded (with or without payment). However, to download most of the beats, you have to pay for them to gain access to the download links. Still, we might ask "Would it be possible to download beats from BeatStars without payment?" The answer is "Yes", and we will tell you how to do it in the following part.
1. Pros and Cons of Official Download
Now that we know that the beats normally need to be paid to be downloaded, it would be better to know that there are different purchasing plans for different beats. Beats purchasing plans include "Lease", "Basic", "Unlimited", "Exclusive", etc. The prices of them vary from beats to beats, but even the cheapest "Lease" and "Basic" licenses are not likely to be lower than $20. Kind of expensive, isn't it? And after paying for the licenses, you can only gain limited use rights. It is true that beatmakers have the full right to profit from their works, but what if we just want to download them for personal usage? You can find the perfect method in the next part.
