Yup, I thought so! Thanks for the quick reply!
Hello fellow ‘junglers,
I tried to get the answer for this on the forums and support, and didn’t submit a ticket because I figured it would be good information to post here anyways.
I currently sell some non-exclusive tracks on my own website. Since it is only my personal library, do I have the right to sell tracks that I have excusively on AJ on my site as well? I think I know the answer, just looking for something concrete.
Welcome to AJ! YouTube, Soundcloud, and Twitter are all cool. Try to network with other musicians and try to be involved in the AJ forums too! However do not get too caught up with it all that it takes away from your music making time!
Great thread! Usually I will have an idea or melody in my head when I write something. When I start from scratch, depending on the track, I will get some percussion going and tinker around on the keyboard until something sound ok.
The best advice I can give is to set up templates and learn how to work with what you have. Learn all the intricacies of your libraries. With a simple template, I can concentrate on writing instead of loading libraries and finding the right sound. Once you get your ideas down you can switch samples libraries if you need to.
I usually do not render the tracks before mixing, but I do use the freeze function to free up memory if I need to (I use Reaper). I master in Reaper as well (in a separate project) and use various eq’s, compressors, and limiters.
My main influences are the music in movies I grew up with, like Star Wars and Back to the Future. Being a teenager in the 90’s, I was into a lot of different genres of music, especially metal, and often times my orchestral stuff turns into some kind of hybrid between orchestral and modern sounds.
Just remember, there are guidelines, but ultimately there are no rules, so just keep at it!
A new computer setup, monitors, and a larger tv for audio syncing. That’s probably the whole 10 grand haha
