The AudioJungle forums have been darkened for years with woes around the rating system. As far as authors go, no one really understands why a buyer who gets a full preview of a song would rate it 3 stars or less, because it doesn’t make any sense. The staff understands this quite well, and suggestions like a “Like” system have been tossed around. But it’s kind of low on the priority list behind, say, search engine updates.

Envato recently changed the rating system for the better so that ratings are no longer anonymous, and that optionally feedback can be left on the song. I think the first reason may account for the fewer ratings, but I also believe it will lead to fewer low ratings as well.

Miranda, some authors remind buyers to rate on their profile page (which you’ve done) or song pages, or in a readme file in the zip. My guess is that buyers often neglect to rate not out of laziness, but just because they don’t think about it.
....Or they are so overwhelmed by your music that they are too excited to listen to their new acquisition to rate it! :)

17 in July 2013 and 22 so far July 2014.
Graham you will boost away. Nearly dead for me since July – the last week absolutely. It´s very surprising due to 120 item portfolio with several categories. Strange, strange. But keep on rocking and looking forward with my brand new N.I. Komplete 9 :-) for fresh tracks.
Dirk – you are now in the distance….cannot see you…..Germany have taken the lead at half-time 5 – 0. :)

I hope you do not mind me submitting a response to your thread.

I love doing the cinematic stuff and I have some things to share with you if you do not mind!

I use Cubase 6.5 on a PC with 32gb RAM and 4 internal hard drives 2 of which are SSD’s which hold the bulk of my sound libraries. I use mainly 8DIO sound libraries with Project Sam Symphobia 1,2 & 3. I adore all things Spectrasonics and I bend, cut and mutilate the loops it comes with. Spitfire Audio has to be King especially HZ Percussion and with these you can get the expensive sound.

I render all stems (individual tracks) so I can compress and add reverb on every channel. Having loads of RAM helps as some of my stuff can wiegh upto a total track count of 40+. I love percussion and poly rhythmic tracks and this normally adds up to 20 – 30 tracks all by themselves. I use reverb from Rob Papen as it has fairly low CPU overheadsand sometimes I will use stereo delay on synths / pads etc from Steinberg’s own internal FX section. I also use the internal Steinberg Compressor for tracks.

Mastering is done in Wavelab 7 using Waves plugins – EQ and finaloutput using L1 Ultramaximiser (this has to be the greatest thing since sliced Roast Beef).

Enjoy doing cinematic tracks as I do although competition here is hot from Martijn and Jeff – they are Kings! :)
