I suggest you invest in a giant skillet…

Usually it happens if you trying to submit too much items at once… kind of prevention of stucking the queue for others I suppose
I know, but i submitted within 20 items in this month. and 27-day waiting to review my packs. And from 6 to 12 days on tracks. Customer support say to wait. And I, So wait.

Were any of your packs made up of tracks that were submitted at the same time? If so, I believe they will not approve the packs until all the tracks involved have cleared the queue. I am guessing here as I thought the packs could only be made up of previously approved tracks, but I can see them perhaps handling it by waiting on the packs rather than straight out rejecting them.

Just conjecture at this point, but it seems like it might be the case since I believe you are saying only packs are taking a long time.

It’s frustrating that they still appear on the forums page. There should be a way to block them immediately, before being posted. It does cheapen the site and makes it look tacky.

Hey, you posted this more than once so I have flagged it as spam. Stop that or Baba will find you and take away your ukulele.

Well, not sure if these are going to be simply in the studio headphones, if you need something that travels well (folds up) or if you prefer closed or open backs.

I totally dig my AKG K701s. They are open back and have a great sound to my ears. But they don’t do travel well.

When I travel, I much prefer the Focal Spirit Pro closed back cans. I can work on a plane or in an airport and they sound excellent.

Do yourself a favor and go try some at whatever music store is in your area. So what speaks to you.

Best wishes! Michael

While I think the choice of samples can be improved, I think your issues are more related to composition and mixing. Let me give you some specifics.

In Storm, you start with a piano panned hard right mixed to sound rather distant. When the strings enter, the piano gets buried almost immediately. When the very loud drone enters, it overpowers everything. Same with the synth ostinato that enters next. From this point, things are pretty much the same until the end because these two sounds are so loud that the rest of the instruments just can’t breathe.

In Freedom, you have a nice piano that is slathered in reverb. The problem is that the playing is not nearly as expressive as it could be so there is little dynamic contrast. When the strings enter, they lack life. There is little vibrato and little expression. Also by panning so hard, you lose intimacy on this track that it seems to want to create. Consider bring the piano to the center and closer so the listener can connect.

Calm lacks emotion due to the lack of dynamic contrast and expression. Purple Fog correctly noted the lack of velocity contrast.

You have some good ideas, but I think you need to take some time to listen to some of the top tracks around here from a production perspective. Some of my comments are certainly influenced by my personal taste, but I have tried to point out some things that are fairly consistent and easily corrected by listening to some good reference tracks, and there are plenty of those to be had due to the number of really good composers posting in these parts.

Best wishes!

.... Are these authors using Google Advertising to boost views and conversions? Do they use other services to pump traffic to that track? I’m pretty sure there’s something else at work than just appearing in organic search results via AJ…

Top Authors won’t tell us with certainty. ;)

But hey, feel free to convince us from the contrary. :D

I will tell you that I most certainly was presented an ad on KVR Audio for Tim McMorris a while back.

I love Slate plugs.

I have VMR, VTM, VBC and VCC. The latest VCC update inside of VMR is just magic for me. It adds depth and clarity that I am sure I can achieve with other plugs but it seems effortless with the Slate plugs.

Out of the bunch, my favorites are VCC, the FET compressor inside of VMR, and the FG-MU from VBC.

The price is reasonable. Steven and Fabrice are very committed to the quality of the products. I highly recommend them and I am not paid to say so. ;-)
