Once you go Mac, you beg to go back… but you can’t you’ve already paid like double or more than compare a much more powerful PC with much better power. and all this becasue you paid for a nice logo with an Apple on it… ehhh
Don’t pay for the brand for the beauty & cosmetics of the box, pay for the work and power it will give you.
PC + Windows 8 (or Linux if all your software support it).
You can go for Windows 7… but with 8 you’ll get more features, and about 20% extra speed if it’s a new computer with a board supported Intel Haswell 3rd generation chip which I highly recommend (it’s amazing). Don’t touch the Ivy Bridge or any other chip before the Haswell.
If you like Mac OS (matter of taste), Buy PC and make it Hackintosh!
It will work just like any Mac, but will cost you less and will be more powerful.
All the above based from my personal experience as a former PC technician at IBM and today using our hardware at the studio for Animation for T.V. and more in the industry.
Once you go PC, There’s nothing else you want to see!

For me so far… very slow sales compare to early months…
Thanks Everybody for sharing your opinions and experience, That was one of the reasons I shared this here at the forum I truly love and care for this amazing community.
I just received a very well detailed email from the support team. Not mentioning names due respect of the specific person, but this particular person took lots of time and care to explain the way Envato works these days, and as we all know it will get more strict during the time good of the marketplace and I understand and respect it.
I know that what I’ve created in this case isn’t a masterpiece, not even close… I never claim it was.
If I sound arrogant in my words here and there… sorry! that wasn’t my intention at all!
Again, some people may not understand the spirit of my words because of my strong opinion or my bad English (I know it’s horrible, sorry…) So If I gave the wrong impression about Envato I want to be clear because it is very important to me if more authors will read this in the future:
I fully respect Envato, and the reviewers, I didn’t mean to heart reviewers or anybody else on the Envato team or their respected jobs.
I admit, I may sound a bit harsh but… it’s not easy for me to explain myself in English so I may gave the wrong impression and if I did heart anybody, I apologise from my heart!
I’m aware that if we’re not satisfy we can’t just “complain” and it will be fixed as a magic, not every case is the same and not every reviewer will do the exact same decision. That wasn’t the reason I open this thread, Again I wanted to know if I’m alone or there are others experience the same.
It’s good to understand that Envato listen and answer, if they were ignore this matter I wouldn’t keep on working with Envato, But I’ve never got ignored by the support on my 5 years here and that is why I feel the warm care time after time, yes… even if I’m not satisfy with the answer I never got ignored.
We Authors, should keep on creating with freedom of creation for the sake of ourselves, for the buyers while considering the marketplace end quality! And I strongly believe that most of us think about it while producing a new creation.
Unfortunately we will get unexpected rejections from time to time (Yeah… I just did!).
I hope that future Reviewers who will join the team will listen more carefully to the materials we upload so we all be happy about the decisions.
I see Envato as my home, I hang here a lot even if you don’t see me a lot at the forums.
Much love to all of you Envato community: Authors, Reviewers, Moderators, Buyers and everybody else!
And again…... Sorry about my bad English.
I just red what you wrote there I had kind of the same problem once on my very first tracks. I just used a “phraser” effect on my tracks to make it sound more electronic and this phraser effect was not good for the reviewer. In the end this track was sold to a library and I made quite good money with it, so I can not really understand that decision until today, but I guess we have to deal with it. As you say I also hope Audiojungle will not become to a website where they tell us on how to create that tracks, as I think especially nowadays, where there are lot of producers making like simple, mass-producing (no offend), being unique by for example using a NOT shouting choir in the background should not be rejected. I think by composing with new ideas, new concepts leads to new trends. I guess first sound-design trailers in trailermusic sounded awful to most of the movie-producers, but then I finally became a trend and now every library is looking after these tracks.
Hope these rejections will not happen often the next time. Wish you all the best and keep up that good work, KK.Nice greetings, Crian
I couldn’t describe it better, thanks Crian I appreciate your understanding and kind words. I also hope that AJ will get less robotic and more free to all of us who mention to create and partnered with AJ for the same goal: Create new things, make the library bigger and better. Keep up the good job!
This is strange, you mention that you’ve got a job in producing music for television yet you take constructive feedback very personally – do you respond with this sort of arrogance to your clients as well? If so, then good luck trying to keep that job. You’re not a shiny untouchable golden god, you’re not putting out world-class mixes. The point is, you CAN make mistakes and you should embrace criticism.
Every Criticism is not a pure one, I’m sorry.. I’m not a robot… I do accept objective criticism, we all learn from it.
It’s very sad if you actually agree to EVERY criticism you get… brain? freedom of creation and personal taste? I use it to create more and more every single day for years.
You may not understand my bad English and what I wrote and jump to conclusions so I can’t blame you.
I respect your opinion, Thanks to my clients and good recommendations from them our studio grow every year a bit more with more new clients, and I’m in this job since 2004 officially, the studio itself since 2006.
Never had any problem from Envato buyer during the last 5 years here, I wonder why?
good quality? maybe… Bad quality? I’m not sure. and Sorry if I sound arrogant, this is not my intention! just point about my personal Envato experience.
Sometime it’s good to share your opinion, and not work as the system wants you… especially when it comes to freedom of creation, not sure how you work… but I guess you know what you’re doing if you judge my decisions and my studio based on what I said here.
Thank you for your fast reply, kind words and full explanation
I understand that things are still changing… but I just hope that in some cases, Envato needs to understand the Author and his/her goal with all the respect to the Reviewers opinions …it’s still weird that they paint our creations.
When it comes to quality, I fully understand and respect it but when it comes to creation opinions… it’s just taking our (Authors) freedom of creation so I hope it’s not what Envato will became (or already is, maybe I’m too late).
Well… I guess I’ll have to create much simple stuff now painting orchestra to the taste of reviewers will be much more work every single time… I like my painting as is, so it will be lots of rejections I guess, My future AJ creation process is going to be much more confusing from now on… must fit to Reviewers likeness, sound impossible to do, it’s like guessing but… nothing much I can do about it anyway
Sorry about my bad English.
Hmm. Sounds weird :/ very strange! I guess maybe it’s the opinion of the reviewer… I’ve had to change a few bits myself in terms of structure in the past here…
Exactly, it’s very strange… the reviewer supposed to tell us how to Mix our creations?
It’s like somebody will tell me how to paint my drawings…
This is new to me, the all thing about the strings, about the choirs etc, and changing notes and octaves? No Thanks, I can handle it by myself, it’s my job for many years now.
