That’s pretty generic advice though. And if the music itself sucks or the orchestration/arrangement/mixing etc. isn’t up to the standard of appropriately being able to convey what it’s meant to, then that self-obsessed “personal touch” means absolutely nothing.
Thanks MikeSea and MusicBoxStudios, I’ll try conjuring something up and see if jazzing up my profile will change anything but I think my time to fold’em is coming pretty soon here.
My first one was one of these
Good ol’ Commodore PC 2. After which I got a 486 with Windows 95, good times
It’s been low, tired of “waiting for things to pick up”, I’m beginning to think that the way I work, Audiojungle just isn’t for me.
Stop thinking about what you can do to get your songs approved. Think about what you can do to improve and create better music. I’ll tell you, work, work, work, work.
Well seems like all it’s saying is that if you get the error message outside the US, click “proceed” and no problems. It’d be best if a Cubase user would chime in and discuss this with you, I had no idea this was even a thing.
I could contact the authors and have them custom-compose songs, but that is very time consuming for both of us and is outside of the budget I’m allowing for music. In a past game development, a (not a famous) composer quoted rates of $12,000 USD+ to custom-compose a song. That isn’t cost-effective for me at this point. Plus, I would already know what I like, based on the samples on this site and in author’s own website portfolios and it’s much faster to pick from what’s already been made.
It depends on the person you talk to really, I’ve done fun little soundtracks for indie games for as low as $100 for no budget games. But that’s when I’m really bored and don’t have anything else on my plate. If you’ve got the cash to buy out songs on here you’ll surely find a decent composer who can work with you on a project, no harm in asking around.
Never heard of anything like that with audio software, what specifically are you tempted to buy?
Hey, there are many problems with the mix you should take a look at, there’s way too much low end and not enough high end, it’s an uneven mix. There are also large fluctuations in volume that distort the experience for me as a listener and come off as just weird. It’s also way too compressed in places, it goes up to -3 RMS where it really shouldn’t.
The composition itself isn’t really interesting either, it’s not coherent and there doesn’t seem to be a clear enough of a structure to it. The tonality also comes off as a bit weird, what key and scale is this written in? Seems a bit too much random for my taste. I think this track requires quite a bit of extra work if you want to get it into a sellable state.
I hope you’ll take my honest opinion as constructive and not as mean spirited, I’m only letting you know my thoughts.
