Hey guys!

I’ve got this track that I’m working on…trying to find a proper ending and can’t really find a good one. I’m quite unhappy with most of the things that I came up with…and there is one solution which I kind of try not to use…FADE OOOOOUUUT! But I think in this case it might just sound right…

What do you think about fading out at the end of a track? Does it sound like lack of inspiration? Does it lower the commercial value or it makes it harder to edit/fit into a media project? For some reason I am not a big fan of Fade Out but, you see…there are these cases sometimes….aaaaaarghhhh…though choice..

I would appreciate any opinion! Cheers

I HATE FADE-OUTS! Well, in certain cases they’re ok, E.g. If a phrases just repeats over and over again as it fades. But I don’t like it when it sounds like someone’s done it because they couldn’t think of an ending. I know how you feel though, I struggle sometimes to find something that fits, but you’ll get there, just don’t give in to the fade! :D

Is it somehow ok for new authors to copy other authors items, or to copy/paste the item descriptions word-for-word when they are not feeling creative or original?

Yeah, that’s totally fine, but only when they are not feeling creative or original .

No problem. Here is the song: https://soundcloud.com/tristan-olson/sample-music Thanks!

Unfortunately I don’t recognise it, but someone else might.

If you are open to suggestions of other songs and are not set on this exact length and specific BPM, let me know as I have a few suggestions :)

Good luck!

Hi yousonics, I’ll give you my thoughts. Please note that I am NOT a member of the review team…

Dude you deserve a never ending forum/community superstar badge. You always post such thought out and truly helpful advice. Good to have you around here Gareth!

So in a Nutshell, you probably won’t see much from me here and if you do it will be written purely for AJ not for my own liking or creative ambitions.

Well yeah, AudioJungle is a marketplace, not a place to be freely creative. It’s about writing what the potential customers want . You really have to keep that in mind otherwise you won’t get very far here.

All the best for the future, whatever you decide to do :)

Unfortunately the only way in your situation is to upload it to SoundCloud and paste the link here for us to listen to it. All authors should include meta-data really as all previews get renamed as ‘preview,mp3’ after upload.

So if you could do that, then hopefully someone will recognise it :)
