Congrats! Logos have better $ revenue and are often bought with higher license types! Good luck!
In this situation depending of kind of sound I choose one channel. Then mix it to mono with 100% balance on chosen channel and mix it to stereo.
Another way is simply adjust channel with weaker signal to the level of second channel. Experiments with leyering the same sound will always effect with phasing, chorus etc. – usable for futuristic experiments but not for sound realism.
Unique means that it’s not for file with versions but for files in pack… So it’s still not value to submit files with different takes for peanuts revenue
When you have family it’s still too unstable to stick with stock libraries only. So I’m sound engineer and bass player and I like it.
And again files deleted after 9 hours after uploading to FTP… Guys adjust your machines
Do not worry, sometimes it’s very subjective, As non-ex I have this advantage, that I can sell rejected files elsewhere (sometimes with success).
It might be that your SFX is too specific or has too narrow possibilities to use. It’s quite often SFX rejection here. Example – you have recording of man passing-by on a bicycle and coughing and driving bus in background. There’s a little chance that someone is in need for that specific sound. Better have separately passing bike, coughing man and the bus. They may be usable in much more situations and configurations.
Can this disadvantage be overcome by making lower quality preview files such as 128 kbps mp3?
You may be shocked how many vocalist recording their cover demos to such quality backgrounds or how many listen music in that quality… Anyway an advert with compressed track listened through TV speakers for most people makes no difference with wav
IMHO Adrev is more annoying to legal buyers than watermark.
You may try to record them by recorder attached to computer audio output or use Audacity to capture computer playback http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/tutorial_recording_computer_playback_on_windows.html
But indeed download preview button is very needed. It’s missing because some time ago AJ allowed to upload shorter sounds without watermark.
It’s just average month, but first time sep is worst than aug on near every stock site. Besides of google we shouldn’t forget about global situation and economy. Strong dollar and weak russian rubel means a lot less clients from ex-soviet countries.
