Sorry, I think you cannot get success making what you don’t want. Track whritten by suppressing your soul will not sell even if you follow all trendy standards absolutely. Music is not a Lego kit! So you have to find your own niche where your music preferences will be demanded…. or try to love and enjoy creating commercial standards! (maybe I’m saying it to myself too ). About form – yes, I think the traditional form of majority of pop songs you’ve mentioned is mostly actual for commercials’ background. Good Luck! .
Thanks for your advice! For me, I truly love all music so it is not a matter of making what I don’t want. But what I make for my own enjoyment may be very different than what I make to sell!
I recommend you try different structures, experiment, be an artist(paint a picture,to say so), be free.
Thanks for your reply. I am not here to make art though. I would like to sell music so I want to create what the market wants…not what I want! I do plenty of that in my spare time!
Watch videos using similar genre, or search for similar type of song here, on AJ. Most of commercials are not more than 1 minute long so making the arrangement within 1 minute is a plus in some cases.
Thanks. That is good advice. I was just hoping there might be some conventional wisdom here already!
Wow! Thanks for that link!!
Are there certain keys that are preferred?
Are they being used as instrumental backing in videos?
Are they being used to add lyrics to?
So, when producing a song for Audio Jungle do you recommend following any standard song forms such as verse/chorus/verse/chorus/bridge/chorus?
First, I was wondering if there are any limits on how many songs any author can upload here? I understand there is a review process and the reviewers may decide on-the-fly that they have enough of a particular type of music but do they also do that about a particular author?
And, then, if there are no hard and fast limits do you folks feel there are best practices in how many songs you should make available at one time to avoid cannibalizing your other songs potential sales?I have a fairly large catalog of songs I have written over time and would like to offer some of them here but I am trying to get the lay of the land before I get started!
There’s no hard limit on how many tracks someone can have up – at least as far as I know, and if there is one it’s virtually unreachable.As many authors here have demonstrated, you can have a lot of songs available at once and still get a lot of sales on each item. I would recommend staggering uploads of same-sounding material, however. If you upload 10 tracks that are all in the same vein around the same time, your initial sales will more likely be spread between them as opposed to being focused on one in particular. It’s definitely better – in terms of visibility – to have 1 track with 20 sales than to have 20 tracks with 1 sale a piece.
Thanks for that great advice!
