If the track is deemed to be acceptable, and just the category needs change, then it’s not rejected.

If it’s rejected (hard or soft) it means there are other issues with the submission.

The truth appears to be occluded in the interpretation of the preview format at that time, by the new reviewer in question, on May 6 2014, for the one submission that had that message sent, according to your records

In that case your alt version was a background version “without melodies, just background music for voiceovers, etc.”

It would arguably be better to have the main track heard first in that case

Truth is, where the buyer would better be served by NOT hearing an extended intro first, the more impactful version can be heard first. However, if there’s just a track and ident/background versions, then the main track generally should come first.

It’s admittedly confusing given the message you’ve quoted, as that evidently communicates that any longest version must ALWAYS come first. But fact is that’s not the case. The review team does reserve the right to exercise judgement in these gray areas, for what helps the buyer and the item most, and that means sometimes extended intros are not best to come first, but it’s not ideal to convey the information as an absolute, it’s true

Thanks for bringing this subject to light though, Andrew, we’ll make sure the team is fully aligned on this now. If you’d like to discuss this situation further, feel free to drop a ticket in the system, and you can PM me the ticket ID to expedite assignment.

Hey Kurly you can send an update either way. Include MP3+WAV in the zip, or just notes to reviewer asking for data edit (for the latter, add a tag or attach preview again). Will be processed with priority either way.

I’m planning to upload some new files and wonder if the order the files in the preview has influence on the pricing? I have some tracks with a longer build up in the intro and I consider these version as my “main files” – but I want to feature a shorter version (that cuts sooner to the chase) as the first track in the preview. Is the price of the item calculated by the duration of this first track in the preview or by the duration of the “main version”, even if it is not the first track in the preview?

You can put the version that cuts to the chase first and the extended one after.

I’m currently a non-exclusive author. The only reason I’m non exclusive is because my music is also on itunes, spotifiy, etc… It is not on any other “licensing” websites. Can I switch over to exclusive now then?

If that’s the case, then yes, you can. :)

Hi All, this post is breaking the rules of the forum. Calling out another author is not allowed. The title has been edited and this thread will be locked.

One remix of an item is allowed to be submitted separately. A remix must be significantly different in terms or style and/or arrangement.

Otherwise, other versions count as a variations, which must be included with the main submission per variation upload guidelines for music.

Any inquiries as to a specific item or author’s content should otherwise go through support channels. Thanks for your understanding everybody, Thread locked. :)

Can anyone on the staff answer this simple question?

Actually, there’s a good handful of people on Staff that can answer that question.

But they won’t now, not today, because it would not be inherently conducive to anything immediately immediate. Simple truth for complex issues.

It would just be words. Words that would satisfy your desire to know what we are doing, only testing everyone’s patience again. Not changing anything today, but posting our exact roadmap on the wall for everyone, including competitors, to see. Are you writing on their forums too btw? I hope so! :D

The people working are very focused on their tasks and their schedules. We cherish the merit of your picketing Zineb, because it adds weight every single day to the reality of the world and the urgencies as they are perceived. Without you, the forums would be a duller place regardless of any outcomes. So please keep writing until your heart’s content. We feel your zeal here and that is a good thing. If that means you’ll type until you see a change, so be it. We’ll keep reading every character you enter, taking everything you say on board, come what may. :)

Know however that you are effectively calling for the entire foundation of a still nascent but entrenched industry to become something it’s didn’t start off as. You are demanding a change to the paradigm. Can we borrow your magic wand please? The moral merit is irrelevant, irrevocably. You want black and white here and now. You want to know. And we can fully see you are effectively stamping your feet every day for the good of not just our community, not just our company, but what you perceive to be the industry as a whole.

And yet, alas, instant gratification is not on the menu on this day. There will be no hasty answers to convey today.

In the words of the famous Apu, Thank you, come again! :D

When we’ll be ready to address the issue at hand, we will. Fact is, there is more than one announcement slated, and actually one is coming very soon. But it’s not what you think it is. There are several teams working on several projects simultaneously, you know, so stay tuned.

In the meantime, we’ll welcome anything else you have to say, anytime, in all earnest.

Ok people, next stop, audiotopia, full steam ahead.

Have a nice Saturday once again :)

May I ask how you ended up in “that” part of Youtube? :)

Legitimate question. :D

Hello Everyone,

Just a quick notice here that we’ve elaborated a new article for all established and aspiring AudioJungle authors.

It’s an acknowledged fact that while we endeavour to help as many people as possible, AudioJungle cannot provide detailed feedback to all the submissions it receives that cannot be accepted.

In a effort to educate the community further, to increase the chances of acceptance and successful sales, we have penned a piece on what it takes, generally, for music to be construed as having a higher level of general commercial utility and viability, to meet the needs of many more commercial projects and to increase the chances of acceptance and sales.

The article is here

We hope you’ll all find it insightful. As much as the review process cannot be likened to a tutorial service, we do continuously want to help everyone understand how to get better at producing successful commercial cues.

Happy composing and best regards to all :)
