LOVE THIS COMMUNITY. Thank you kindly for your time. I WILL take your inputs into the final product. I think its definitely something I need to continually work on, and also many authors here, the mixing/mastering process is a craft all unto itself. You guys rock my world! Cheers.
Dear colleagues. I am afraid this track may sound like other music out there, whether its the groove or melody. I keep thinking, “I’ve heard this before”. Many tracks sound similar on AudioJungle and other popular music on the market. I’m not sure whether to upload it for approval not. I’ve uploaded many tracks here, then ended up deleting them for the same fear. I do not wish to plagiarize on this great site where the majority of my monthly royalties come from. I value your opinion, as I know the authors here won’t hesitate to beat me down when I deserve it. I leave it in your capable hands. I appreciate your time and consideration. Regards.https://soundcloud.com/sensercomplex/me-and-the-world-royalty-audio
Great jazzy tracks, I dig ‘em. Are you sure you’re from Texas?
Keep uploading. Not sure what the market is like for them on AudioJungle but you never know who’ll be looking for them down the road. Honestly, I have no idea what a hook for a jazz/R&B/soul track is. My two cents is a clear melody and chorus line, as oppose to a constant solo. I’ve had tracks on AJ for years before they sell. If you believe, then keep writing. Have fun with different genres too. Cheers!
Thank you for the feed back. Cheers to you on the one year anniversary.
I’ve had decent sales in many genres. None are considered “hits” but they do sell from time to time, so I’m OK with that. The trick is to make tracks “easy to swallow” an any genre. Meaning there needs to be a “catchy hook” in it’s riff, whether its beats or melody. Many buyers dislike the music they purchase in the sense that its not their personal style to listen to on their own time. As someone said, it has to fit the project. Light commercial corporate tracks seems to do the best here, but its not something that inspires me to write, just not how I’m built. Hence, probably my sales are lower. Use what you know and like, make it contagiously hooky. Which may mean lame at times, but hey, we’re mostly here to make a few extra bucks every month Good luck to you, Sir.
Please understand its only a 20 second loop of the verse and nothing else
Thanks. I suppose he could. Some corporate settings require permission with purchase orders to set up new accounts on company credit, which can take awhile with red tape, etc… Can a staff member verify this please?
I think I know the answer to this question but wanted to confirm. I have full track version on AudioJungle, can I make a loop of it (verse part only) and sell it on another site. A client request because he has an account at that other site? Thanks. Cheers!
There are many reasons why more track doesn’t lead to more sales. New items doesn’t mean they are valued items. Not every buyers are looking for same materials at a consistent level with same kinds of projects every month. The quality of your audio isn’t meeting their standards, etc… You are falsely assuming that because it is sunny on the first Tuesday of July, it will be sunny every Tuesday in July, and every month after that.
Also, not AJ’s problem what else anyone does for a living, or how hard they work at writing music. It wasn’t a criteria to join. They didn’t ask for my work resume when I joined. They have no idea what I do to be biased.
Oh, I read your post, you’re not making enough money from AJ. Not really my problem if you continue to enjoy being abused. My pimp makes me money. LOL!
