Here are what I thought why it may have been rejected. 1st point: The snare is used for the build up every time, and it gets very repetitive/fatiguing on the ears. Perhaps another synth line could come in with a varied gate time as it gets nearer to the start of a the section.
2nd point: I totally get that with this kind of music their is a repetitive element, the beat stays the focus and the melody holds it together, its what ‘clubbers’ love. But maybe around 1:30 and 2:45 some other element should come in to beef it up/create another level to the track.
My thinking is that perhaps some distant vocals could work really well with this, kinda like the Tiesto style.
Additionally while it has some great prospects, it could be seen to be more aimed as a track for general listening, and not something with as much commercial value to say a cinematic of corporate track.
Thats my thoughts anyway, what ever the out come I would not take it personally, I think with a little extra time you could make this track into something much better than it is with some simple changes and additions.All the best!
Thank you for your reply, I will really consider what you said, really good, detailed and honest answer thanks again
Not a bad track, quite well mixed.
To my personal taste it’s a bit repetitive and the snare in the build-ups sounds like a machine-gun, so, maybe if you would switch to a drum machine with round robin or make some filter tricks, it would improve this.
Some of the side-chain sounds pretty aggressive and most of the synths are very “in your face”. Maybe would give a more “3D” effect if some would have some more reverb, some would be pushed more to the sides and make a space for everything there.
Anyway, a good mix.
Thank you very much, I will listen to advice and try to fix it, I will listen to advice from all the people and try to fix it to be professional and to upload again.

Also I did want to mention to everybody, I don’t really think as authors we really should expect to have any “rights”. This is envato’s perogative to choose the files they like and as one of there staff has mentioned before they don’t exist to provide a critique on compositions. They can’t possibly have the time to do that with all the massive amounts of submissions they receive. I for one am glad to hear that “hard rejections” are increasing. Although, I am surprised to hear that art-of-sound got a hard rejection since he is such an established author hear with a track record of quality tracks. I’d be interested in hearing what it was that was rejected.
Nice melody and positive mood. If I were picky the reasons might be: mix issues – mainly with not audible bass line, the composition is liitle boring – 1:30 should be enough without copying near the same twice. Generally good thing for loopable music bed not full length track Hope it helps.
Thank you very much I will listen to advice
Thanks to everyone for their advice and comments
Your right is to go to another stock media site if you are that unhappy. I don’t think having a public attack at the reviewers in the forum is the right way to go about things. It’s like arguing with a referee or umpire in a sporting event.
Do you think they are going to say ‘ok, I see your point of view now and will change my decision.’? You may get a positive response from your support ticket if there is a really valid reason as to why the track should be accepted but I wouldn’t count on it.My advice is to forget that track, write some new material and move on.
No this is not a public attack on the reviewer through the forum, I just wanted to know whether there are any rights of composers to “this site”
I know that the reviewer will not change his decision, but on the other hand it does not necessarily mean that he was right this time
Thank you very much for the advice, I will continue to compose, and I hope that this inconvenience by the referees will not happen again to me or to any member
I set the Track Item discussion, and you can to listen and comment on the file, and I’m just wondering what the rights of composers.
thank you very much for the advice
I really thought that the reviewers of this site are doing a good job, until this moment. I think it is a great injustice done to me, rejecting an item.
I submitted a ticket support but still have not heard back, but I think I will not give a detailed answer.
I’d like to ask other members, and composers, what are the rights of our composers? There is currently no rating that we can give our reviewer as well as direct feedback, the possibility existed a few months ago. So what are our rights in this regard?
I’m really unwell this decision reviewer and I would like all the people who have appreciated my music give their opinion. I was really ready to leave this site and in addition 51 items that are on my profile just for this one item.
I think the reviewers made a big mistake, not a long time this has happened to me. Item Reject:
Unfortunately your submission Touch To Play isn’t ready for AudioJungle and cannot be resubmitted as it did not meet our minimum requirements for quality and/or marketplace policies. In order for submissions to be considered for sale they must be of high aesthetic and technical quality, unique to our library and cannot be in violation of Envato’s policies:
My: - It is my opinion that the item should be approved - Many items on the site are of low quality, but they are accepted - I would like to hear the opinion of other people on this site, if I really need something to fix it again and attach the item to upload. - If house music can not pass a quality music on this site I think my place is not here, in addition to 51 other items
StudioLeBus saidI have that opinion since the first day I came to audiojungle, especially listening to some ukulele songs
to think that some items really shouldn’t be approved ? Really cheap midi sounds or guitar not well tuned… It’s nice to stay open and I don’t want to be rude but there should be a minimum quality required but sometimes it’s really really low…
Hey i don’t want to say that i always make super high quality stuff, it wouldn’t bother me if reviewers tells me i should work more on this or this ! but what i hear sometimes is just.. frightening !!what do you think ??
