Sometimes even during mastering you can correct that a little with a stereo tool, but if other times that’s not enough. I probably do it wrong, but I go by ear the best I can and then mix down the track. If I notice the panning is not equal I will go back into the mix and take apart the track and pan them more deliberately. I had this problem with my most wanted entry. So what I did was panned the brass together (put them all on solo) and did the same thing with every other section to make sure they sounded good in sections. Then I listened to it all together as a whole and made sure it sounded good as a whole mix. If it still looks a tad off in the wave spectrums, it’s okay, because at you know it sounds good.
I promised I’d update everybody and I’ll make this short.
Track was rejected. Explanation leads me to the conclusion that I’m just not good enough for this place. One thing I’ve learned in life is to know when to cut your losses and move on so I’ll be leaving.
Thanks for all the assistance from everybody. It was greatly appreciated. Having a love for music is simply not enough. You need a lot of talent and a lot of mastering skills to bring that talent to light. I have neither and it’s pointless to try to fool myself into thinking I do.
There’s something out there for me to do with my life, but after 35 plus years, I think I’m finally done with music as far as the business end of it. I’ll do it for my own enjoyment, which is what it should primarily be for anyway.Take care and my best to all of you.
Very sad to hear that mate. I would say not to give up, but it seems that you have already made the decision. But 35 is still young. Did you know Stravinsky didn’t even starting composing music until he was 27? You are right that it is not just the love of music that will help you make it, but passion and love is certainly important, and without it there is nothing, no point. So you have a jump start over some people. Please continue to do it on your own time at the very least!
Just got it from Fed Ex today! Thought I would be able to use it today…..nope. Just finished installing and updating right before I had to go to work lol—all in all it took about 9 hours (I had some sleep somewhere in there). Can’t wait to try it out tomorrow. I have a question though. It says 130+ GB of instruments. Yet, after installing my hardrive only decreased by 90GB. Are they counting the lossless compressed samples as if it were not compressed?
Waderman saidAnd that, my wady friend, is exactly the root of this issue if you ask me. Envato seems to rely heavily on referrals and organic traffic. Google changes the rules, and all those sources of customers crumble away. It’s not just here, it’s in almost every other RF library (other than a few here and there) from what I can gauge. Does make me wonder where this sector of the industry is going.
On Top of that I have NO, absolutly NO referral income the last two month even if I have uploaded tons of watermarked tracks to SoundCloud with referral links. Even Youtube Videos with referrals have no effect. That´s definetely strange.
What are Google’s rules? I suppose they own the planet now and are charging us for air too?
So no shortlist. The anticipated hell… Oh, and the player allows to play many previews simultaneously: listen in a nice cacophonic mix to save time. ;DDuilioFiorille saidActually, randomness is not too bad. There are so many fantastic entries that picking an “absolute” winner in this contest is just a matter of taste.
So the distinguishing ratio could be…randomness. Very sad.
True, it’s going to be tough to choose a winner. You guys can vote whenever you’d like, but I think we should all listen to them as much as we can. The ones that we like the most will become more and more apparent with time.
It’s really strange, why judges didn’t choose their top and just let us to vote for the best of 20 tracks for example. Why we should listening to all of submissions, or almost all, i don’t know. 448 tracks…it’s just a hell.
Yeah, I’m sure this will be a learning process for AJ. So many submissions, so little time!
In hindsight, I’m wishing I put the shorter versions before the full length version in my previews. The ones with edits go straight to the point of the piece and then it ends, then you’re interested in what the full version sounds like. I’m finding myself listening less to the ones with full intros at the beginning. This is so strategic, I wish I had thought about putting the edits first.
But Kudos to the ones that grab you and pull you in so you listen all the way through I’ll listen to yours when I get home from work.
