‘Hey everyone, i’m stuck in the “soft rejection” phase, reason: the watermark sounds “altered”, you can’t edit the watermark in any shape or form. the thing is I DID NOT edit change pitch, modulate … u name it the watermark ! i just drop it into the mix and that’s it! i don’t do anything to the watermark, not in my previous uploads not with this one either, 10 minutes ago was my 4th re-submission! and still having the same reply 0.0!

any advice is appreciated, thanks :)cheers

You can hear how altered the WM is here, on your preview still pending in the system – http://2.s3.envato.com/files/48271248/preview.mp3

Something on your side is changing it, perhaps a sample rate issue. Maybe try downloading the original again.. make sure all rates are the same.. Otherwise not sure, but other submissions are ok.

Sahten!

I have checked the preview shown above, the watermark sounds higher pitched there. After I resampled it to 48kHz and then changed rate back to 44.1kHz without resampling, it started to sound right.

It seems like you imported the watermark (which is in 44.1kHz) to 48kHz project without resampling it, so it became high-pitched. Then you exported the project to 44.1kHz mp3 with proper resampling. To fix it, you should probably add the watermark to the mix after exporting it in 44.1kHz, or maybe resample it to 48kHz before adding to the mix. You might also consider working in 44.1kHz because quality loses on conversion outweight quality gains from using so little higher sampling rate.

If you using Cubase, then by default it does not resample on import. Just a heads up – You can change it in the project preferences so it is set to resample by default. I was having a similar issue as you. Not sure if you are using Cubase though.
