This contest has been a really defeat for me, I’m still shocked: a simple, nice track, with a nice melody, voice and text, has been “softly rejected” because of the Non Native PRONUNCIATION. Those who have listened the track, approved it and don’t find the pronunciation so terrible..I’ve also opened a ticket 3 days ago, but still no answer.. Total defeat..
Ciao Luca, sorry to read you feel defeated, however it’s always a requirement for english vocal lyrics to be enunciated in a way that makes them viable enough for general use in commercial english markets.
The review team does have a little bit of wiggle room for accents/enunciation, but approvals department has to be a lot more strict with actual grammar of the writing. Even small mistakes in english grammar writing, pronunciation notwithstanding, may result in soft rejection when all other aspects of the production are great.
It’s really encouraged for all those who submit songs to have lyrics proofread by a native english speaker before recording the vocals. Thanks for your understanding everyone.As for the ticket, Luca, support team should have it assigned shortly, otherwise feel free to let me know the ID and we can have a look and discuss further there if you wish. Grazie.
Dear Adrian, Oìve sent you a mesaage from your profile message box, hope you can help me
Thank you, man..

reading the rules of the contest, it says this:
“Create a festive, seasonal Christmas song and submit it to AudioJungle and get it approved by 9pm CST (US) December 7, 2014. “
But there was another announcement saying somehing like:
“Track must be SUBMIT (NOT APPROVED) by 9pm CST (US) December 7”
I couldn’t find it now, but am I wrong? If not, can staff clarify?
I was in the air if open or not this thread.
Reason is that this track has been SOFT REJECTED BECAUSE OF THE PRONUNCIATION…
I’m shocked, it’s totally insane. I mean, ok, it’s not a perfect native english speaking, but the CRITERIA should be the same for all the authors, and I’m listening to some english pronunciation and come on, is this worst than others??
Nothing against Staff members, but this time I really don’t get the point..
Thank you Audioagent for infos. I’ve also contacted another Finnish authors that told me the same about medical care but it’s difficult to understand where it comes from.
I think I will call an intelligence agent
So, you’re NOT finnish? I thought I was going to solve my enigma! ehehe thank you
Hi Finnish people!
This morning I received my first detection from “Tunesat” about one of my track used in “Studio 55” show (Mtv3 channel).
Here is the audio part shown on Tunesat:
Don’t know if it’s a commercial or it’s taken from the News.
So, if any Finnish speaker here could help me, it’ would be great!
