I rarely notate an entire piece—3 reasons: It is very time intensive. The purpose of the sequencer isn’t to notate. The purpose of the notation software isn’t to produce the audio.
I know, technically, I CAN produce a physical score with my sequencer… but the details aren’t available for it… I can also produce a recording from Finale… but I can’t tweak the audio or master inside of it.
That being said, when I DO notate a piece before sequencing it, the richness and depth of the finished sound of the composition is unmatched. I can compose and orchestrate with more details, flexibility, and overall complexity inside of my notation software.
I just think of it as another tool. A painter can only create so much detail in their art with limited brushes…

Thank you SchwartzSound!! I’ll have a look.
This is reason 518 that I ? AJ. The community here is outstanding and so helpful!
I’m working in Chrome—doesn’t seem to like it on my end for some reason.
I’m curious if there is a fix or work-around for this. I know that a good percentage of Envato’s sales come to AJ through referral links..
Hello AJ Friends!
Forgive me if this has been covered, but I can’t seem to find anything regarding this specific issue.
Many moons ago, I embedded several individual AJ Audio Players (one for each of my collections) in my website – linking back to AJ, hoping to boost sales. I’ve since added more collections and wanted to update my site with the corresponding players… When I went to my site, none of the players were showing\functional.
I see that there’s a new AJ Audio Player out with HTML5. This isn’t the one I used – nor do I necessarily want it. It doesn’t scroll and I can’t arrange the tracks in any particular order.
When I tried to re-build the code in the older version with the ‘Dynamic Code Generator’, it didn’t like to collection IDs I was putting in and therefore produced no preview.
I’m constantly sending people to my site to listen to my AJ tracks… Who knows how long they’ve been hitting my site – only to find a dysfunctional page.
Am I missing something? Does anyone have any suggestions or fixes?
Thanks in advance! I appreciate you guy!
This. Is. Awesome. Thank you!!
I’d definitely be curious to see what the official rules are on this. I would think that cutting out the AJ watermark would be a violation of policy (and an ethically questionable decision).
Unless, of course, the VH author purchased your track… Then, I would think they could do what they like with the track within the confines of the license…
But if they’re using it for free, I feel like it needs to remain “as-is”.
My 2.3 cents..
Stormdrum 2 (and Pro) from EWQL have a TON of great electro\experimental percussion samples that can be made into some killer original perc. lines as well.
I use Heavyocity too, but I like to mix\match libraries from different vendors to add another layer of character when appropriate.
