I understand the argument from everyone’s perspective, and I am grateful that people are wanting protect our music property with better licensing agreements. Here’s my five cents. I’ve been consistently making anywhere from $200-$350 a month from AudioJungle for the past two years (though not much compared to other authors, its my play money, and I’m happy with that). However the licenses may change or evolve in the future, if my income is appreciatively less when the new licenses goes into effect, I GONNA BE PISSED!

Damn, I totally enjoyed the track. I really have no idea why it was rejected. Even reading through some of the comments, I don’t really see it. Must also admit, the cinematic genre isn’t my forte. I still get rejected here from time to time. No doubt, AJ is getting much more critical with their library. After being here for three years, I definitely feel the tightening up of the approval process. Keep it up, love your work. Good luck and cheers.
Nice work. I’ve been in the market for a little over three years, I still get rejected from time to time, most recently more often. Don’t fret it too much, it happens to all of us. If you’re truly a creative person, you’ll write more. Many great advice here, they all should be heeded. AudioJungle is getting very critical with their library, which is good, but it certainly makes it more difficult for young/new authors to make it through. Keep plugging through and improve your work by comparing it to others, you’ll get there. Good luck and cheers!
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.

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.
