This is awesome, for me it would be a dream coming true!
Could you please let us know if you struggled with sync, SMTPE and other stuff the average Audiojungle author doesn’t have to deal with?
Also, how did you set the price for the job? Was it something imposed by the production or the result of an agreement and, if this is the case, did you have some source to define a rate (for exampre, x money for 1 minute of music)?
Thanks and congratulations for this achievement!

My experience has been that a great engineer / mastering engineer can make stock plugins sound great. “Better” plugins can make things easier but if you have great ears and experience the stock plugins can be used very effectively. Conversely, if you can’t make stock plugins sound good, “better” plugins won’t make a difference on the quality of your project.

Hi everybody!
This song is supposed to build up to the final orchestra chord, but listening to laptop speakers seems to me there’s too much gain reduction on the very end. I tried to adjust limiter settings but still it seems loosing some power. Here’s the track:

I’ll be grateful for any feedback….
Best,
Pietro

Just amazing. Don’t know if the new layout is already influencing buyers’ behavior, but I had a huge sales peak in the last 12 hours.

If your reverb has a stereo input/output, you send the instrument by a stereo bus and you’re searching for a realistic response just leave it full left and full right (or stereo, centre balanced) otherwise experiment and have fun :D

Eq is a good friend, taming the rumble or reducing/boosting room presence.

Also compression can be used; for instance, for aggressive drum tracks, room mics are heavily compressed, narrowed in the stereo field and added to the mix.

Also experiment with mono reverbs, as they can help sometimes some instruments to “cut through” the mix.

Hello Pietro! I suspect the start. The synth introduces a mood that does not fit to the mood that you develop later in the track. I’d say the problem is the second synth chord. The track itself is superb :-)
Thanks for your feedback! It was concieved as a crescendo (that’s the reason of the second part, more aggressive) but you may be right…

Hi there,
I was quite satisfied with this one, but it ain’t selling at all…
It was approved without any issue, but there might be something to refine (maybe in the low end?)
Check it out:
Travelling to Infinity
All the best,
Pietro

Hi guys,
I’ve reached the 100 sales milestone!
It took me quite a long time, mostly because I’m uploading at a very slow rate (1 track every month, more or less) but given my small portfolio I’m pretty happy of this result…

Let’s celebrate together with a little giveaway: I’ll buy 1 (one) track to the first 2 (two) authors that will reply to this post, and rate them 5 stars – sorry, I know it’s not that much but… I’m not that wealthy! ;)
All the best,
Pietro
