What’s your price range?
I would go for a used DSLR (Canon or Nikon) with 2 pretty good lenses – one telephoto lens and one wide-angle-normal.
You will get a lot for your hard-earned cash if you get a used semi-pro model, instead of a new consumer model – there is a big difference.
Here’s one tip though, regarding instruments. Only put the prominent instruments.
For example, not many people would search for “bass” if they were looking for a standard pop/rock type song where the bass isn’t doing anything special.
If someone searches for “bass”, I would think they would be looking for a song where the bass has a bigger role, like in a funk song.
I agree it’s hard sometimes, especially since we can’t track what people search for. On the other hand, if we knew what people search for the most, everyone would add those tags and they would become worthless.
Just take your time and put tags that are RELEVANT – that’s the most important thing. No one wants to find your calm piano song when searching for “brutal death metal”.
Well, if someone tells you keywords that stand out and everyone starts adding them, they will soon be worthless except for the items with lots of sales.
Just put yourself in “buyer mode”, and picture yourself searching for a calm song for a photo album for example. What would you search for?
You have to make separate preview files for each version and then these have to imported and sequenced into a separate session to create and export the full preview file. If you also did this for the main files you’d have to be sure your timing was perfect as well or the two files wouldn’t match anyway. If anyone know a better way to do this, let me know!
I think you overcomplicate things a bit.
Why not just line up the separate files on one track, with the “AudioJungle” loop on another and hit export. Then mute the watermark track and export again. Now you have two identical files with all the SFX/songs – one with and one without the watermark. It literally takes ONE second + bounce time.
Now, Smudgethis, was this a Sound Effects Pack, or a Music Pack? I can see it being used this way with SFX, but not so commonly with music?
Haha, now that’s 30% of a lot!
...of course the 30% also motivates people who are not so good at advertising, and that’s something we will have to live with.
But there are some (good) blogs/websites that generate TONS of traffic to ThemeForest especially, which of course is part of the reason why the site is so huge today.
Are the samples in SSD3.5 the same as in SSD4, just in Kontakt instead of the new customized VST? Or is SSD4 completely redone?
