I’m sad to see that the process is actually very biased. Yep.
There are authors that made a first good impression, and those get approved even if their files are… less standard, and authors that made a less impressive first impression and their files are constantly rejected.
A friend of mine send me a composition as MIDI, I was using same instruments that I used on one of my latest tracks and I was using a very similar mixing concept. The tracks, his and mine are quite similar as orchestration, feel and mixing. His track got rejected, mine got approved. Again I say, same instruments used. Explanation to him? low quality instruments… if 11 people are THAT much biased, then…
Maybe the most obvious advice, BE IMMORTAL. This is what I could come up with so far as solution, but I was born in Transylvania and I have photophobia and don’t really eat garlic… if you know what I mean…
I pushed the “Request Staff Reply” and it saddens me to see no answer in this thread…. from nobody.
In a overly crowded environment with coldplay/ u2 delayed guitars + piano (corporate style?) or ukulele + glocken + claps, a blues track would stand out I guess. Some of my best selling tracks are jazz and metal, so, you don’t have to follow the trends, sometimes you can go full against.
My worse selling track is an ukulele + glocken track, so…
Sounds good, very “woody” pizzicato, very open violins, nice. Also the piano sounds good, not really like the typical sampled instrument. What piano is that?
Also +1 to Toivo. While I agree to an overall sentiment that community needs to keep some constant healthy level of positivity, discussing problems, including low sales, is an important source of reassurance and unity among authors. Authors holding back from expressing their dissatisfaction would create fake, artificially sugary environment producing a lot of invisible (held back) depression.JBlanks saidIt would be MORE like Facebook – people trying to make their lives look better than they actually are.
This is not Facebook. It’s a marketplace.
Thinking how buyers are checking the forums before making a decision from whom to buy a fitting track makes me laugh. We are not a multi-level scam pyramid to “market” ourselves with hyper-positivity and “fake it till you make it” principle by screaming around how great everything is.That being said – less whining, more professional discussions – is certainly not a bad advice!
I took a look on your profile. You got 137 items approved, that’s much more than many others around. That means the reviewers think you did a good job, so, you’re doing fine from quality point of view.
93 sales, so, somebody did find your music useful.
I wish you that the issue is solved soon, your items approved and you start selling them Cheers!
Mediocre at best (UVI Orchestral Suite I mean). Much cheaper I got the Cakewalk Dimension LE + Garritan Pocket Orchestra. At least there you have really good sounding woodwinds.
nikejonessound saidNope. It looks like an ancient form of electronic music. Maybe now you see the link between Audio Jungle and music.
Looks more like an ancient form of animation..don’t see the comparison with the Jungle
The most prevalent current method of recording analogue sound on a film print is by stereo variable-area (SVA) recording, a technique first used in the mid-1970s as Dolby Stereo. A two-channel audio signal is recorded as a pair of lines running parallel with the film’s direction of travel through the projector. The lines change area (grow broader or narrower) depending on the magnitude of the signal. The projector shines light from a small lamp, called an exciter, through a perpendicular slit onto the film. The image on the small slice of exposed track modulates the intensity of the light, which is collected by a photosensitive element: a photocell, a photodiode or CCD.– http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sound-on-film
So, that guy was sometimes painting the waveform or sometimes using carton shapes to generate the wav form. Pretty much like you would draw a wave in Windows Paint and read it in Cool Edit/ Adobe Audition.
