Another incredibly terrible idea and development by Envato.
It is a well known fact that rating system was bad. But thanks to you guys, now it is just getting worse. Maybe even the worst state it can possibly get.
Seriousy, for how long have you guys been thinking to come up with such development?!
Or, do you really see this as a fix for the previous rating system?
I read the whole thread so I understand this is a temporary fix but I still agree with negative comments.
By the way, everytime I am getting amazed to see how a certain majority of authors are completely happy with everyhing you guys do! Maybe this is gives you enough confidence to come up with such incredibly indigested ideas. I am afraid, I don’t know.
Of course it is not fake.
You guys need to check out “Hang Drum”. You can build one of these out of a propane tank. With the proper equipment, it is no big deal.
Oh by the way, there are a few manufacturers around the world who build these. Not only one.
I was wishing for a feature, and thought if I shared here, some people may be able to suggest ideas of how to make it better for their relevant media outlets. I’ve noticed Audio Jungle has a forum for item requests which is excellent, but I think maybe we could cater to the needs of someone whose looking that deeply for music already, by creating something a bit more collaborative.
When someone posts to the forum, the user has to sift through replies (probably like butter, being under time constraints) and probably only gets to listen to half of the music recommended. Even then, if they really like a song, they may need to come back and repeat the search.
I think a user generated playlist bucket could be very helpful – or a public link drop box. So when Annie Cutter, for example, posts she’s in need of music for XYZ , she can have a generated playlist bucket to sift through that’s created by authors submitting their tracks for review. Giving them the option of ‘storing for later’ may increase sales as well?What do you think?
While it is a nice idea, I have to agree with SonicCube.
Besides, being under time constraints is no ones fault. No one should see the music as the final step of a project but everyone seems to take it that way and this is the main reason for most of the people trying to find the “right” music in a very limited time and usually failing. So, only thing we can still do is to offer what we think is best for Annie Cutter and hope she can find something useful in our suggestions.
Thanks all for the feedback, we ended up purchasing 5 NT2As as we already have our “go to” high quality studio mics on hand i.e. (U87 etc.) , these are more for use with newer artists, and less important work. Mixtapes etc.
Rode is a great quality microphone for the low price – mid price range, however if your going to spend over 1,200 I’d get into Neumann mics instead, much better quality over all. But again, it depends on who you are recording, their voice etc. Different mics can capture the same voice in many different ways.Thanks all for the recommendations
You’ve just picked an awesome one Enjoy it Jonathan!
Or….maybe have a look at the Rode NT2000 as it has variable polar pattern etc, i’ve been using one for a while now and they are quite natural sounding. Some of the SE electronics stuff is supposed to be good
Well, I think Jonathan asks less than 500 for 1 mic. So, as far as I know, NT2000 is a way pricey model than NT2 -A. But nevertheless, NT2000 is a decent mic for its class
Let me assure you that implementing new badges really doesn’t take any time away from our Dev team. Our Community team (which don’t know how to program a lick of code ) spearhead these kind of things so our Devs are free to concentrate on all the geeky coding they can handle.
The badges took around 5 minutes to implement Search takes a lot longer and is handled by a different team. I don’t think newbies will feel victimised by it realistically. We’re still working just as hard on new hardcore features and this hasn’t affected it.
Well, you guys are well aware that I wasn’t talking about “implementing” the badges. I am pretty sure Dev Team is doing a great job (looking at the marketplaces, it is obvious, and thanks to those guys/gals, we always have a decently working system without having any major problems). I was talking about ideas that would contribute to the real deal more than some fancy “badges” and stuff. I am simply saying I find this useless while most of us (especially Audiojunglers) are suffering from the lack of those hardcore features you mention for a loooong long time and having decorated with some new badges instead of having some real achievement throughout the marketplaces. Marie Antoinette, anyone?
Oh by the way, It seems like I am the only one who finds new badges unnecessary. It is funny and allright in the mean time
Thanks for the replies anyways guys.
Hey again Jonathan,
You are very welcome my friend.
By the way, I think you can start these kind of threads under Audiojungle title in order to get more replies. A thread like this one wouldn’t necessarily be off-topic since it is about music/music creation (microphones in this case). I have seen way off-topic threads has been started Audiojungle forums Besides, it seems like, Audiojunglers don’t show much attention to this part of forums.
Well, I don’t see the point of this.
Wouldn’t newbies find this bothering?
Imho, it is just redundant. I expect Envato to improve serviceability such as improving search functions and so, instead of creating unnecessary badges.
Well, should I thank for this badge? I don’t think so, but thanks anyways…?!
I’ve been using Rode NT2 -A for a couple years and It has never failed me. Awesome mic with an affordable price. I have used it for vocals, voiceovers and capturing various sounds. Always gives me what I expect and sometimes even more. Price was pretty high at the time I purchased it, but I guess it is way under 500 now.
Strongly suggest you to check it out
