fxprosound saidExactly. Here, in Serbia, average salary is about 300$. Ofcourse, if you are lucky to find some regular job.
IMHO it depends on where you live. Living in a country with poor salaries and weak socials can make your decision easier. I think the safe limit is earning from stocks 2-3 times better than average salary in your country. It’s rather hard to reach in most countries.
With some hard work and a bit of talent AJ (or stock music in general) should surpass that quite easily then. If I lived in Serbia I would definitely do it.
Unfortunately, I live in an expensive country (avg. salary $4300) so it would take many, many sales to rely only on AJ…
Hi, YouTube has lots of good stuff (and ten times more BAD stuff) but if you’re looking for a bit more organized and professionally recorded material, check out www.guitartricks.com or any of the other big pay-per-month sites.
Yeah! The Black Album with a 57 for example!
sorry for double post…
One important thing to keep in mind though, when you make loops like that, is that you often need to add a very small fade (like 1 ms) at the beginning and end. Otherwise you may get nasty clicks at the loop points.
It definitely isn’t bad for the buyer, but if you check all the best selling tracks, very few of them have alternate edits, so I don’t know how much it really matters in real life. It seems like 2 min+ is what the buyers want, and they can always shorten it if they need to.
When I watch commercials on tv, very few tracks seem to be tailor made for that commercial, they often end abruptly.
I can see it being more useful for orchestral music/trailers though, providing versions without choir/drums/strings etc.
Well, to sum up, if it doesn’t take much time, why not provide alternate versions?
Hi zkanter, here’s something with a similar sound, but doesn’t have the build with drums:http://audiojungle.net/item/thoughts-of-yesterday/2379790
Thanks for all this!
So rather than being able to cut the song easily after the first 30 secs, and just use that first part – you want to easily be able to extract say, 5 secs from the intro, 15 from the main part and 10 from the outro/ending to create a 30-sec version?
Meaning the whole song can’t change tempo/key/mood/instrumentation too much.
Am I understanding this correctly?
