If the samples in the video represent the best it can achieve (and in a promo video we assume this is the case) then I don’t think we’ve got much to worry about.

Exactly what I was thinking when I watched it! I would have thought that the promotional video would have shown the best it could offer, but it sounded really cheesy.

I think it’s an interesting idea, and maybe could find some use for demoing ideas or something. But I am not yet shaking in my boots.

I think it would be cool if you could send an envato t-shirt and elite author t-shirt to anyone who becomes an elite author. That would be sweet.

They do send out an elite t-shirt (among a bunch of other cool stuff) once you reach the second level with the care package. A little further to go but I don’t think it will take you that long :)

Thanks for the heads up, Benji! I couldn’t resist for $49, and will try it out tonight. Looks like there are a lot of fun toys to play around with there.

A carpenter – I liked to build stuff out of wood when I was a kid. Still do, but just don’t have the time for it.

Or… a Goonie! This will show my age for sure. I wanted to ride my bike out to the beach and find a hidden tunnel that led through a maze of booby traps to a ship filled with gold and jewels. Not really a job, but one bag of loot from One Eyed Willy’s ship and I would have been set for life.

I also agree. Thanks to Eric and Envato for paying attention to author needs while bringing the marketplace forward. This is a great step!

You might be able to solve the mystery by looking at the History tab on your item page(s). Though not sure if the reviewer notes get stamped on an update, come to think of it.

Holy cow – I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a thread exceed 2000 responses.

Actually, I have a theory that there are a lot of people who search for music who also spell ukulele like “ukelele,” and I’ll usually list both in my tags.

Yep, absolutely the same here. My newer songs don’t appear to get the sort of immediate interest they used to, on either of my accounts where I stay active. This started happening a few months back (I could probably pinpoint it down a little better if I looked at sales of various recent songs). However, a good percentage of them are starting to get hits over time it appears.

Like Antonio I’ve also slowed down my uploads to AJ, and also many of my recent tunes are more introspective than happy. I find that the introspective ones can do well over time but rarely get a lot of sales all at once. So maybe it’s me more than any AJ changes, or maybe a combination of both. Honestly, since last October or so things haven’t felt as predictable as they used to, but there’s been a lot of – largely positive – change going on around here, so that kind of makes sense.

My main guitar is a Tacoma DM-28, and my main ukulele is generally either a Kala ASAC-C concert or a cheap Lanikai tenor.

I have a Kremona classical, but I don’t use it much these days. The thing needs some work to get back up to recording par.

I’ve recently moved to a better studio space, so the next big purchase is a new steel string, followed by a new classical. So if anybody has any ideas :) The one that has really struck my fancy from a sound and feel perspective is the Martin 000-28 Clapton signature model – unfortunately I can’t stand Clapton…
