Just a little idea that came to my mind:
Why not add a litte overlay graph on the “views” page that shows the preview download count? That way one can see how many buyers were considering one item and match these numbers with the actual buy count for which envato could also add an overlay.

Hey Music-Wave,
very interesting topic.

What exactly do you mean when speaking about “New Original Music”?
May you post an example link?
As far as I understood your statement, you want there to be a seperation between “standard” and “non-standard” music, however one might define the two categories.
These categories would need to be chosen by the envato team since otherwise every author would put their songs into the new category to get the best search result placements. Also I guess that a new “non-standard” category wouldn’t be as effective as a specialized filteroption for the search.

The Idea of letting envato seperate music into such subjectiv categories has both potential and danger.
I also thought about this manner when the new prices were introduced since the knowledgebase says that quality, complexity and potential demand influence the price tag (without further explanation how itemquality takes influence: https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/203039124?_ga=1.104226752.1532049778.1439067411 ) What if audiojungle introduces an “envato-team” rating of songs that will influence the pricetags? And what about additional filters for these ratings? That would enable buyers to choose either highquality and highpriced items or lowerquality and lowerpriced items, depending on their need (for example exposed music vs. background music would need different qualities).
On the other hand there is the problem that the rating needs to be as objective as possible which is nearly impossible even for only two categories “standard” and “non-standard”. This could lead to an unfair marketplace.
Also potential buyers will most likely choose the “high quality” versions, just like you would sort out lower-rated items on amazon.

In my opinion there can not be such a thing like subjective item seperation between qualities without the marketplace becoming a “place for the pros” where no newcomer can get their music sold.

If you want to go for some premium whistling samples:
https://vsl.co.at/en/Voices_Complete/Vienna_Whistler
another very good one is
http://realitone.com/realiwhistle/

That one from vsl is very versatile, just listen to the demos and watch some walkthrough. But it’s also complicated to do, you need to put a lot of effort into switching the articulations and tweaking stuff.
RealiWhistle is simple but a bit limited.

Take into consideration: The vienna whistler needs the hardware-dongle “vienna-key” for another 30$ or so.
I’m also not sure, if RealiWhistle works with the free kontakt player, you may do some research before buying.

@greenfoxmusic: that one does not sound like a life performance :D at least I would not be able to produce such a steady touch with my left hand :o

That one from Chris sounds like a good live performance, thanks for sharing :)

Interesting! Thank you for the share. The Sound is very smooth and mellow, but I’m missing some top end and definition on the harder attacks. Any post processing on the piano pass?

And – great to hear some performance :D I searched the database and heard too many quantized arpeggios.

Totally like the feel of this song. But the whistler sounds oversampled. That vibrato effect gets really annoying. Also you may try to mimic the human breath attack on whistling. It’s nearly impossible to whistle at all the same dynamic while holding a note. At least the start and end dynamics need to differ a bit more.

Oh and did I mention: Too much vibrato :D

Hey Audiojunglers,

I’m curious if any one of you uploads full live piano performances to audiojungle? “Full live” meaning no midi programming (at least no major quantization and note shifts).

If you do, could you provide information about your midi keyboard and the sample-library used, or if it’s a real piano, details on the mic-setup? I’m really interested in listening to some authentic performances.

Hello and welcome :) Nice relaxing track! I don’t know about your tags, but as Bohemian said, you may think about the potential use of this song and update the title/description.
