I recently had an item approved, however for some reason it was called Epic Hybrid Ident 3, and not Epic Hybrid Logo 3, I think this was a mistake on my part.
Whats the correct way to get this changed?
I have never had a single item rejected. Why? Because I like many other authors here I am creating commercially viable and high quality material. This is not a place to upload music that you composed because you happen to like it. This is a marketplace, a place where money flows, I started off being all ‘lardy-dar’, ‘feeling the music’ etc, I do still write music because it makes me happy.
But like others I rely on this income to pay my way, if you want to write music because you enjoy it, go and sell it on itunes, or give it away for free. If you want to get paid a fee each time it sells then get commercial.
All good, item was just approved
It’s not bad. I’m not sure about using FX (like sweeps and whooshes) in combination with this kind of music, I mean it is more likely to be heard in techno stuff than in epic/orchestral. Other thing is that it has too much of distortion in sound,did you check if there was clipping (volume indication going into red) ?
Its a modern cinematic trailer track, distortion is not from clipping but from distorted instruments like mega horns which goes with the style of music. Seems like most modern action trailers are shifting from the usual orchestra to a hybrid setup with synth elements
Great energy man! Only thing I can think of is maybe a slight abundance in mid-high frequencies at the second part of the track, especially when the large percussion kicks in. Composition is really nice, like the arrangement of synth, strings, horns and choir.
Thanks Flowsopher, ill take that into account when I do a second mix
Hi guys, I don’t normally post tracks to be critiqued, but I have a few days between now and when I aim to submit it for sale. So please go ahead and critique the track as you see fit, paying particular attention to the mix and if needed the composition.
The track is aimed, like many of my other tracks as a cinematic trailer, so bare this in mind when listening. https://soundcloud.com/kristopher-fisher-audio/work-in-progress-ect3-draft_v10

Oh and sorry, I just saw that you are not a new author, but you are new to publishing your music. Sounding real good btw! I’m sure you will do great buddy.
Thanks, must have been bad luck then I suppose! I’ve reported it to customer support, so hopefully something will be done about it. I just had a sinking feeling that this would end up like the Soundcloud community, full of spam bots! Glad to hear that isn’t the case though.
Don’t get me started on Soundcloud, I recive alerts through out the day of comments saying ‘want more views, go to such and such @ something dot com”. Views? What is this YouTube? Bah!
I have just checked out both your profile, One Horizon to Glory and Ghost Art. Your right to think it was total spam, after all it was unsolicited. However I understand why they have contacted – all be it in a very broken language translation which make them sound like a Nigerian Prince covered in gold waiting to send you millions of dollars if you would just part with that mere £500, after all whats £500 to legitimate millions right?
I kid, I kid.
I think they have contacted you because as a new author your profile gets displayed due to the simple fact that you are a new author. If they are trying to set up a business model where they create a author profile which combines multipul composers work then I guess it could be a good thing, if all composers are equally contributing and to the same standard. I guess they contacted you before you had got much or any of your items online, so you could potentially add it to their portfolio – remember if you upload a track and then delete it, you cannot re-upload it again. Going back to the original message, its not common practice, and I would steer clear of it.
