I’m building a collection of instruments and samples that I need in order to compose music on Reaper.
I would think instruments that work within any open DAW platform would be fine. You could use the same third party VST or AU instruments that I use in Sonar. I don’t think the DAW is that important. What is important is knowing what kind of music you want to make. This should drive your instrument selections.So what kind of music do you want to produce?
I haven’t decided yet, but I’m leaning towards orchestral. Songs with a nice melody, great harmonics, and a catchy tune. Songs like this:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ix4OCHntjt8
Just a heads up: Most of the item rejections you will have will be as a result of a “learning curve.” As you get to know the guidelines and get a basic idea of the quality standards, you’ll have more success getting items approved.
The key is to upload items the same way you would load items onto a conveyer belt. By the time you upload one item, another will have been reviewed. Saves time, energy, and a lot of clicking to check on your progress.
Best of luck and I wish you the best!
...but only for things like light leaks, colour presets, text presets, certain elements etc etc.
If it’s for a standard project then the price difference could lean very heavily in favour of the buyer rather than the author. I mean, how much would it be? Five, ten, twenty times the normal price? If it’s one of those companies that just do logo template renders and they’re doing 100 a year of one template… the author is losing out, considerably.
And if it was twenty times the normal price, then somebody who just needs to use it five or ten times is not going to buy it. It would be really hard to get the right balance of price in my opinion.Maybe it could work, I don’t know.
That’s the key issue here. Pricing the multi-use licenses so that the buyer doesn’t feel like he’s paying too much while also making sure that the authors don’t feel like they’re losing out.
And having something like “3 licenses for 3x price” probably wouldn’t work out since few people would take it seriously enough to pay anything past 1 license.
However, I did bring up the possibility of an “Unlimited use” license in the past, but it was forgotten. An Unlimited use license simply is an extended license that grants the buyer an unlimited number of uses for a particular item. The price would be considerably more, but the buyer wouldn’t have to come back over and over again to buy the same item, and the author would make more Extended license sales.
It’s my estimation that most buyers never come back to buy the same item just to get another license once the first runs out, but feel free to correct me on this.
I’m grateful for what I discovered about Croatia, Bosnia, and Serbia.
3 countries with beautiful languages, especially in music. Here’s one of my favorite songs, which I found recently:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p4S8rSg8DyE

All three countries are under-appreciated IMO and they deserve more recognition for all the good things they have that make the three countries unique, and not just with music.
I have a friend who recently bought some items from Graphicriver and he loves the website. The only problem is that there is no multi-use license, even with the Extended option. He wants to use the items he bought for multiple projects, but doesn’t want to have to come back and pay the license over and over again when he already has the files he wanted.
One way to solve this issue would be to introduce a multi-use license option, both regular and exclusive which grants the buyer a license to use an item multiple times after making a single purchase, with proper price balancing put into place.
What are your thoughts on this? How viable is a multi-use license, offered as an option in both Regular and Extended versions?
I’m building a collection of instruments and samples that I need in order to compose music on Reaper. The problem is finding a decent starter kit, percussion, wind, string, etc. I need somewhere to start and I’d appreciate some advice on where to start, either for free or for a low price.
Any suggestions would be helpful.
That’s pretty awesome to hear, especially for someone on Audiojungle.
@KingDog, is it possible to make an update about ratings through any staffs who directly involved?
Indeed Since the Community Team is directly involved I can comment on the stuff I know. We’ve had an initial meeting with Justin about ratings and what authors want from them. This meeting is kicking off the next round of rating improvements between Community, Product and Developer teams. The Community Team has definitely been listening and hearing from the community and we’ve been bringing, and will continue to bring, this feedback to the other teams that are involved.Please remember that while we’ll be launching other features to the Marketplaces, that doesn’t mean that we’ve abandoned ratings. We have multiple development teams and projects going on at the same time. Things like ratings that require more heavy lifting will take a bit longer than cosmetic or smaller changes. We want to get ratings right, and that means we’ve had to do some more backend research which affects the development time.
Your work is much appreciated. The fact that you’re acknowledging our need for some changes to the rating system is very encouraging.
My referral badge just had an upgrade.
Envato, I just want to say that you’re doing an awesome job, especially with this new Rating Reasons feature.
This will save the community and the support staff a lot of headaches. I do recommend that people be required to give reasons for rating anything below a 3, as it will stop the Revenge Ratings.
