Not sure if this conforms to AJ posting rules, but for big budget, I value the thinkspaceonline courses, groove3 has also a ton of useful stuff (the “all access” pass is ridiculously cheap for what you get. Depending on what you’re aiming at scorecastonline is also a great (free) resource for a bunch of information.
Hope this helps Cheers B
equality means everybody has the same chances, not some more than the others. i do not care that x is better than y, i want x and y having the same chances of being discovered. its just moronic.
Exactly, everybody has started out on the SAME principles, some have grown, some (well, more) have been lost along the way. But that’s not “moronic” that’s just how business works.
Tim, pretty much what I wanted to say, just way better worded
Millions and Bilions of clients come to this site, to buy Music for 17$ for tv license and when the tv guys can buy this kind of cheap music, this is not good for the music industry and for musicians, and maybe some authors and musicians are not agree with that and want to express their opinion.
About the non-exclusive: Yes you can work for 1$ I recently saw on this forum some authors offering to give away their music for 150$ with all rights… if you are agree…. better than nothing .. eat it or leave it, lately it seems to be the goal of all business and company directors, but again is not fair for a musician or for someone who works for a company.
Continue defending this kind of things and devaluing the music… in some years our music will give away for free and yeahhhh! the end !
Eat it or leave it , ok just leave it but I don´t see what’s wrong with expressing an opinion that benefits all of us.Special mention to those who think that the importance of your opinion is related to your sales, I prefer to think that a responsible and committed site as envato , listen to everyone equally.
Well, I didn’t say a single word about the pricing policy (and I won’t as this is a totally different topic) but only referred to the point that was made in these thread(s).
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with expressing an opinion, and I’m absolutely open to discussion and share of thoughts. But I have a problem when I don’t see a reasonable amount of sense behind an argumentation. And I don’t see how the number of sales has an influence on the way you can share your thoughts – as long as it is polite and within the rules of the forum everybody can provide there opinions and suggestions.
I really took the time and read both threads regarding this topic and I find me only shakin my head.
It is just a normal principle that customers are eager to buy stuff that sells well, simple as that. I totally agree that there are problems with the search engine to be fixed, respectively optimised. But the way you bash against the top selling authors and the AJ stuff / site makes me wonder what the hell you want over here?
You AGREED to the non-exclusive split, if you’re unhappy with it go exclusive or choose other sites that offer 50/50 or even more. There is absolutely no necessity for AJ to “push” or “promote” your account/items because they get 67%. They offer you a platform to sell your stuff to (possibly) millions of clients. And they do a whole lot to attract more and more customers to this site. Eat it or leave it. Front page exposure is also totally overrated. I haven’t been uploading for nearly a year (just busy enough with other projects), and I have no single item in the top seller list but I still sell a decent amount of tracks every month. RFM is a game of consistency and … more important … a long breath. Deliver quality music (that the MARKET wants and demands), steadily and sales will come. AJ is just not the place for short term money making.
And for the “exposure” for non-selling tracks in a single thread – one week and it’s crowded with items, not based on any search criteria or style or keywords – so you end up with a multiple page list of items that have no meaning for the buyers needs, Meaning when a customer gets here, he’s looking for mood – pace – tempo – key – whatever (pretty much what the search engine is for). Such a single thread with tons of entries with not-top-selling entries is just plain useless for a potential buyer.
Instead of putting all this energy into rebeling against a (proven and working) system, you’d be better off writing music and uploading stuff.
That would be way more helpful to get you sales.
... I’d love you to hop over to the Indigogo campaign page of this horror flick that I have the opportunity to do the score for. It could really be an awesome movie and we appreciate any help we can get. Even if your not able to actually fund the campaign you can help us by spreading the word, sharing the trailer, the campaign, the facebook page.https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-possession-experiment https://www.facebook.com/thepossessionexperiment
Music for the trailer also by yours truly
Thx for taking the time.
It doesn’t get any better than Eduardo Tarilonte’s “Era”. When it comes down to playabilty and range of instruments this is pretty much the best that is out there. Other I know of are some niché libs with some old percussion stuff etc. But seriously, if you wanna make medieval music, there’s no way around “Era”. Maybe check Best Service or Soundsonline, I guess they will have a summer sale. Cheers B.
Don’t get mislead by the “light” in the title, it’s an awesome full service choir library that’ll get you very far. The Olympus bundle, or Mars and Venus mainly give you even more flexibility in terms of divisi writing (men/women) plus more syllables / fx etc. But Requiem still holds a solid place in my template and I even have 8DIOs Req Pro. If it’s your first attempt on a choir lib, totally go for it. Well worth the bucks. B
Wow sounds nice. Do you get to keep an account with them? In case you lose the file?
I bought some VSTs before from www.soundsondemand.com and if you lose the file you are pretty much SOL. You can not download it back again.All my other VSTs are downloadable. Addictive Drums and NI instruments and such.
That’s simply not true, all you need to do is contact their support via email and ask for new dl links. Usually they get to you within 24hrs, if even.
Will be there on Sat. as well
Blue_Atom_Audio, you can’t register trax on a PRO library and sell them here as royalty free at the same time. (Besides the fact of renaming tracks, which may work to some point but still can get you in trouble – and is within a very dark grey legal area). If a client buys a track of yours here on AJ, he has not to pay further royalties for the usage of that cue. If that same cue is registered with a PRO elsewhere, it is likely to happen that this client gets contacted by the PRO to pay usage fees for that bespoke track. AFAIK AJ is currrently reconsidering the licensing structure and RF / PRO registered discussion. Hopefully there’s gonna be some major changes and improvements in the near future, but as it is today, you are not allowed to register material (no matter ex or non-ex) with a PRO that you are selling here.
