This is still in the early stages. Any advice on how I can improve? Develop? Thanks!

Not to be a “wet blanket”...but having been involved in the soundware business in a previous life: As long as people are sampling acoustic instruments and analog or analog-modeled synthesizers, there shouldn’t be any problems. But most if not all ROM-based instruments prohibit the repackaging or repurposing of its sounds outside a “final” musical context. If you think it’s difficult for Envato to “police” plagiarism with musical compositions, imagine how hard it would be to do so with individual sounds. Just some food for thought…

Very good point

This is one of my better compositions, but I have had similar compositions rejected just today. It’s still in the queue. Does anyone have any feedback? What can I improve? I really like it the way it is, but I can never be too sure the way AJ reviews can be.

The more I read this post the more malicious and negative it seems to me (the original post). For one, using the word “Sucks” and then basically calling everyone on Audio Jungle amateurs simply because his stuff was not accepted. I’m sorry, but that’s just very unprofessional. It’s one thing to disagree with rejections, and have an opinion about a site, but to have that attitude and publicly state it in such a manner.

Is this what you have to offer after 30 years in music making: https://soundcloud.com/ukmusicbox/upbeat-rr0115-preview

why did you like it then? lol It’s not really bad though. It sounds like the type of stuff that would play on commercials. I actually think a lot of the overly commercial stuff is beyond annoying (edit: I am not targeting R&R’s track here, just a general statement). There are some very annoying commercials that utilize some of the most annoying music on the planet, but somehow the music supervisors think that it works. I would venture to say that Audio Jungle actually offers higher quality music for the most part, and much more idiosyncratic, which in some ways is less mainstream, but actually more useful.

Glad to hear AJ team helps in cases like this. I don’t see a point in star ratings too. Facebook style “like” would be just fine. I understand that star ratings are important on codecanyon etc, where customer support is a big part of the business. But on AJ, what you hear is what you get. Why on Earth would someone buy something and rate it 1 star?

I agree. No need for ratings, just “like” (and no dislikes or thumbs down like youtube or pandora). Just like facebook. Although I hate facebook lol
