Writer Tracks = songwriter music tracks

I was looking for an available name for a website and this one was. My original AJ name was Affordable Recording but after a year or so they allowed me to change it.

Also I make a living composing and producing. I do not depend on AJ nor do I think I could when it comes to royalty free music..If I ever thought AJ was doing something I didn’t agree to when I signed up, I would leave it. So far they have done everything they said they would.

Why not start your own site that caters to the clients willing to pay more?

Some of you misunderstood what I am meaning. No need to call me crazy or be disrespectful.. I didn’t say there wasn’t money to be made. I simply was making the point that when it comes to money and the importance of the music backing track, the company writing the checks will go with the cheaper rate.

Many strings and horns ( players ) are cursing VSTs everyday….

I really don’t want to make anyone angry but I do not see the argument concerning companies using our music for $17. It is basically supply and demand. Long gone are the days of companies hiring composers for exclusivity. To be honest the background music to these guys just isn’t that important.

I used to be a house composer for a major cable channel and the “powers that be” used to tell me, “don’t kill yourself, the final product is going to be heard through 2 inch speakers from a cheap television.” Although discouraging, it never kept me from doing the best production I could do. My point is, the people in charge of overseeing the cost will always go the cheap route when it comes to the music.

If one feels strongly that companies are ripping off composers then one must examine one’s self when it comes to using strings and orchestration from keyboards, loops, VSTis, etc. We are all guilty of doing what we have to (ethically and legally) to stretch our money. If it weren’t for VSTs I couldn’t make the living I make from making music. If were not for $17 royalty free tracks, lots of commercials would not get high quality music – my humble opinion.

Please don’t misunderstand, I wish we would make more for TV ads but it just will not happen unless you can broker some sort of exclusivity with ad producers.

I really think it should say something more than just “audiojungle”. Folks from Envato want to keep stuff simple, but developing the one word watermark into a sentence would not hurt. Like “Available exclusively from Audiojungle” or “License this track from Audiojungle” repeated every 5 seconds of silence.

Just my few cents

Agree with you +1

The second video with the girl in front of the stone wall. You can hear the AJ watermark in the background. At 40 seconds you can hear it plainly.
