Hey guys,

We just added a Folk / Acoustic genre to our Music, Music Packs and Source Files categories. We were previously classifying them as “ambient” but it makes sense to have its own category. We’ve moved across 100+ relevant files to this new category so far, but if you think you have files in your portfolio that should be moved to this new category, here’s what to do:

  1. Go through your entire portfolio and make a list of all the URLs of all the files that you would like moved to the new Folk / Acoustic category.
  2. Send this list to support@envato.com explaining that you would like your items moved to the new Folk / Acoustic category.
  3. Please DO NOT post requests in this forum thread.
  4. We will then move all files from your list that we think are relevant to this new category.

Meanwhile, please feel free to create and submit music for this new genre.

Thanks, everyone! :-)

Ha, ha, I imagine so! :D I think some may already have been moved over, but do let us know if we missed any. :)

Seems a good move :) I wish I had equipment to record acoustic guitars, but at the moment I don’t. I’ll make some acoustic music when I’m even older and more boring than now :)

LOL !

I was already old and boring when I was 16 so the acoustic guitar was a natural fit for me :)

The older you get, the wiser you get. That’s my excuse for listening to more alternative and more folk-based music these days. ;-)

Thank you! This is certainly a justifiable category and one I have little doubt will quickly become populated.

Categorization can be tricky, and AJ has done a terrific job meshing musical genres with identifiable market segments.

Great work fellows!

It’s good to keep expanding your music taste. Can’t listen to Iron Maiden and Cradle of Filth forever! :D
