2. Music Requirements

Edmwarriors has earned a reputation for its unwavering commitment to maintaining a professional standard by consistently curating top-notch tracks. To achieve this, we dedicate significant effort to handpick only those tracks that align with our quality standards.

  • Originality

The tracks submitted should be 100% original and made by the producer. The track should not previously have been sent to artists, labels, DJs or other third parties.

It’s not allowed to upload tracks that have been uploaded to other ghost production websites or any other websites including social media platforms. In order to maintain accuracy in the verification database, we don’t allow collaborations.

  • Quality

The tracks being put for sale in our platform have to meet the technical and commercial requirements in terms of quality and structure.

The track should be fully finished, professionally mixed and mastered and it should compare to industry standard songs and playlists.

  • Workflow

You are allowed to use melodic loops in the production process as long as it’s in a creative way. We have a restriction of 1 melodic loop per sample pack. The use of construction kits is not allowed.

  • Length

The length of the track should be a minimum of 2 minutes and a maximum of 8 minutes.

3. File Requirements

File organization holds an equivalent level of importance to us as the quality of the tracks themselves as our foremost objective is to present our customers with well-organized and easily navigable files. Please, bear in mind that incorrectly submitted files can impede the uploading process, potentially leading to delays in processing your tracks. By ensuring the accurate submission of all files, you can avoid the need for revisions and the prospect of your track languishing in a lengthy submission queue on a daily basis.

  • All files should have the same duration and structure.
  • If you want to upload an Extended/Radio version of your track, please, put them in a separate folder inside the
  • All files must be submitted in WAV format, rendered at 44.1 kHZ, 24 bit or 32 bit float.
  • All files should be correctly labeled and organized. This applies to all submitted files (incl. project, stems..)
  • All files, information and text should be in English.

3.1. Master

  • The master file should be in .wav format
  • The master should not sound distorted and over-compressed.
  • The master should be limited to between -2db and 0db in the master channel.
  • The master should sound loud enough in order to get a standard commercial volume level. The integrated loudness should be between -9 and - 5 LUFS.

Example of an acceptable loudness of a master track:


3.2. Mixdown

  • The Mixdown.wav file is the unmastered version of the track and must be bounced without any processing in the master channel.
  • The Mixdown shouldn’t peak over -3db in the output channel. Preferably it should peak between -6db and -3db.
  • It should sound and peak exactly like all stems playing together.

3.3. Stems

We recommend keeping an eye on all levels of the channels throughout the mixing process. This will leave enough headroom for later mastering processes and it will create a well balanced mix.

3.3.1 Requirements

  • All stems should be rendered in the full length of the track.
  • They should be .wav files rendered at 44.1 kHZ, 24 bit or 32 bit float.
  • Each stem should be correctly named and labeled. Stems Example of correctly labeled stems.
  • All the main stems playing together should not have a maximum peak signal higher than -3db on the master/output channel.
  • The shouldn’t include any irrelevant files like Project file, Ableton .asd files, Text note, etc. (only a Radio or Extended version would be approved).
  • The stems should be submitted as separated as possible. All individual instruments should be submitted separately, if you have used bus processing look at the following point (3.3.2. Organization).
  • If you have used groups in the mixing process, please, provide the ungrouped stems in a folder called “Ungrouped” inside the

3.3.2. Organization

To optimize the workflow for our content editors, we kindly request our users to structure the stems in a manner that, upon extracting the file, we can effortlessly drag and drop the audio files into a DAW and achieve the same sound as the Mixdown.wav file. Prior to submission, please, ensure that all the stems, when played together, precisely replicate the sound of the Mixdown file.
This is very important for users who manipulate their stems by applying effects to grouped tracks or engage in bus processing. In such scenarios, we recommend adhering to the following stem organization framework within the file:

  • You need to submit the stems in a way that they sound the same as the Mixdown in terms of all effects being applied, levels being the same, etc. To ensure this, you just only have to include the main track stems (without repeated files) in the main folder, exactly the same as you would do if you are sending your stems to an engineer for mixing. Mastering Example of correct organization of the main track stems.
  • In case you’ve applied FX on groups, please provide the ungrouped individual tracks as well in a separate folder inside the

    Mastering Example of correctly including ungrouped stems.
  • Bus Processing - If you have used bus processing, please put the buses in the main folder in order to get the same sound as the Mixdown. Mastering Example of correct organization of grouped stems and stems with buses.
  • There shouldn’t be repeated files in the master/current/mixdown files).

3.4. Project File

You need to submit the original project file as well as all audio files used in the track.

  • When exporting your project make sure you are saving all necessary audio files with it. For example - in Ableton the option is: “File -> Collect All and Save”; in FL Studio: File -> Export -> Zipped Loop Package.
  • You should include all original MIDI information and loaded plugins in the project. If you print sound to audio you also need to include the corresponding original file in the project as well.
Example of a correct MIDI and audio information included in a project. Mastering Mastering

Even if you don’t wish to offer your project file for sale, you still need to upload it in order for our editors to make sure everything is in order.

3.5. Instrumental

  • The Instrumental should be the mastered version of the track, excluding the vocals.
  • Melodic parts such as vocal chops could be accepted in the instrumental file when there are no spoken words or phrases and it’s more of a melodic instrument than a vocal.
  • Vocal counts for any vocal phrase as well as a full vocal part (chorus/bridge etc).

3.6. Cover

The cover art you upload serves as a visual representation of your track and has the potential to quickly capture the interest of potential buyers, leading to increased plays. It is essential to consistently upload high-quality and unique cover art to make a strong impression.

❌ The cover can’t contain:

  • Copyrighted images (for example art from websites dedicated for designers).
  • Copyrighted images such as logos of any kind including label logos such as Afterlife, Hexagon etc.
  • Pictures of famous people or artists/DJ’s.
  • Personal contact (email, Instagram, YouTube channel, etc).
  • Offensive, sensible or polemic content.

✅ The cover can contain:

  • Name of famous artists/DJ’s/labels.
  • Self-made artwork.
  • AI generated images.
  • Stock images.
  • The logo of Edmwarriors.

4. Use Of Samples And Loops (Behind The Project)

We allow the use of melodic royalty-free loops but it’s essential for us to make sure the loop comes from a certified royalty-free sample pack and distributor. This is why we ask our customers to provide information about all melodic loops used in the production of the track that’s being submitted.

We have 3 different types of submissions depending on how many melodic loops have been used in the track. Click here for more information.

  • In case a track contains melodic loops (Type B or C), you have to provide info on them that appears alongside the track on the platforms:
  • Type of instrument (Bass, Guitar, Piano, Synth, etc);
  • Full name of the sample pack (for example ‘Cymatics - Chaos’);
  • Loop Name (for example ‘Cymatics_Chaos_Bass_F#_9).
Listing of a melodic loop Example of a correct listing of a melodic loop.

We don’t allow the use of more than 1 one melodic loop from one sample pack. You can use several melodic loops from different sample packs in an original way. But If you are taking several loops from the same pack, you are using the pack as a template more than as a support tool. The same applies if the vocal and the melodic loop are from the same sample pack.

  • Process Note

In the process note, the seller should provide any useful and relevant information about the production of the track - hardware/software/plugins and instruments used in the production process.

5. Information Of The Track

5.1. Name

  • It should start with a capital letter.
  • We don’t allow the use of upper case (only if it's an abbreviation) - for example UK, TUTB.
  • It should be original and it shouldn’t contain any information about the track like genre, names, similar artists etc.
  • We don’t accept double naming of a track — for example “The Night (Dream Night)”.

5.2. Price

The track's initial price can be determined/set by the producer, but we reserve the right to disapprove it if it seems inconsistent with the track submitted. In this case, our team may propose a revised price along with a partial rejection, which you have the option to accept or decline.

  • The price of the track depends on a couple of factors: the track’s category,quality and how it’s been made.
  • The minimum price for a track that is “Partially-made” it’s 150€.
  • The minimum price for a track that is “Complete-made” and “Full-made” is 200€.
  • You should submit the price of a track rounded to 50 or 100 (For example 249 is not allowed).

5.3. BPM

  • Set the BPM of your project.

5.4. DAW

Choose the DAW you have produced the track in.

We currently approve submissions made in Ableton Live, Logic Pro, FL Studio, Cubase and Studio One.

5.5. Offering The Project For Sale

You are able to choose whether to publish the project file for sale or not. If you don’t want anybody to buy your project, no worries. Select “No” and we won’t offer it for sale. However, in such cases, the user still needs to upload the project file so our teams can properly check that everything is in order.

5.6.Short Info

  • Here you have to give a little commercial information of the track.(for example - FISHER type track, ready to release).
  • It should start with a capital letter.
  • We don’t allow the use of upper case (only if it's an abbreviation) - for example UK, TUTB.
  • The short info should be in English
  • Please have in mind that correct spelling and grammar are essential when writing the short info. For example all names of brands/plugins should always start with a capital letter.

5.7. Tags

Sellers are able to include tags in the product information to describe their tracks better e.g. labels, DJ’s, artists, etc.

  • The maximum number of tags that we allow is 3.
  • The tags shouldn’t include any offensive words/irrelevant information/advertisements.
  • The tags should be used to describe the track - style, references, mood, composition etc.
  • We ask for relevant and clear names and not information that has been previously given in the short info or process note. For example, if you already labeled the track under the genre “deep house”, you shouldn’t include it as a tag as well. Try to be accurate as the tags serve as a reference to your track and it could help buyers find the perfect track for their taste.

5.8. Vocal Type

5.8.1. Royalty-free Vocal

These vocals come from a free licensed pack, they are not original nor exclusive but they can be used and exploited legally.

  • If the vocal is royalty-free, you should include the name and the link to the sample pack that it comes from.
  • The name of the pack has to be correctly written in the following format: “Creator brand - Name of the pack” for example: “Cymatics - Odyssey” :

We don’t allow vocals and the melodic loop that come from the same sample pack.

5.8.2. Exclusive Vocal

Alternatively, you can also choose the option of using an original vocal. In this case, we advise you to provide the necessary information about it in the process note and provide an unprocessed (dry) version of the recording, so we can review the edits and confirm the vocal's originality. To further validate the originality, consider providing all relevant files - this includes the lyrics in a text document, the unprocessed vocal track, and various unedited takes. All these files should be put in a separate folder named “Vocal files” inside “”.
