Hey randomnoise,

Yep, it’s an often discussed thread here! From previous responses it appears that the Envato staff is aware of the fact that the ratings don’t make sense with audio files and eventually plan to replace the system with something more appropriate.

For now, know that you’re not alone – I think all of us authors feel the same way, and many of us have gotten 1 and 2 star ratings, even the great Soundroll.

If it makes you feel better, consider it a rite of passage :).

Yeah, that’s a really solid track – love both the trumpet and the guitars!

Online collaboration is so much easier than even a few years ago with the advent of cloud based storage. I collaborate with a few other musicians using Dropbox or Google docs to transfer huge files.

Hey, wouldn’t it be great if our profiles had a searchable setting, kind of like “Available for Freelance” but instead “Available for Collaboration” with a way to indicate which instrument(s), and possibly an option for hourly rate for session work if applicable.

Good sentiments!

For me personally, I don’t like dreaming big. My little peanut brain can’t think that way. Great big goals are too abstract for me, whereas I’m happiest when I know the next thing I can do right now. Sure, you can break giant goals down into smaller ones, but ultimately the way to $10 million is the same way to the next $10 – write another song, play your instrument, update your page… The difference is that you’ll see that $10 a lot sooner.

For the record, IMO neither Justin Timberlake nor Madonna would succeed on this marketplace without a large team of people to compose, produce, and play instruments for them :) There’s too much talented competition here!

What do you use to warm up? Do you think it is important, or do you not warm up at all?

Yes, I think it’s very important! :) But no, I do not specifically warm up before recording. :( Though generally when I go into the studio I’m composing in real time, so I might sit down for a few minutes to come up with a chord progression or whatever before recording it, so maybe that counts.

I’m not doing any Satriani-ish stuff, either – it’s almost exclusively folk-acoustic, which is a different animal and arguably not anywhere near as technical.

Come to think of it, I don’t warm up before playing sports either…

Hey – real men and women do their own hand clapping! :)

Actually it’s not as easy as people might think to record a good hand clapping track – this could be a real time saver. Thanks for the tip!

And (though I should really learn to leave well enough alone) for the record, I still think hand claps as percussion is fun and often is the best option for the emotional impact you’re trying to invoke. Fortunately for those of us who use them, many buyers appear to agree :).

@jhunger You can always get the last week: http://audiojungle.net/popular_item/by_category?category=sound But it would be sweet to be able to look further back.

Hey, look at that! Geez, I’ve been here over 2 years and I never noticed you could filter that way :)

But yeah, didn’t see a way to get a history by week.
