Great post and I agree it should be read by every Audiojungle author. I would add (as others here have already done) that hard rejections with no explanation are very frustrating. One sentence explaining why (if we all agree to accept that it is of course a subjective opinion anyway) would be very very helpful.
The post mentions improving ’’one’s skill at audio production’’ and if some hint was given as to what the problem with the track was perceived to be by the reviewer, I’m pretty sure every author would go ahead and improve or fix it. As it is we are completely in the dark when tracks are rejected, and I believe it is contributing to the problem of resubmitted rejected tracks with no changes (which I am not saying is right of course).
I have seen so many forum posts where authors are posting Soundcloud links to tracks which have been rejected, asking others to help them figure out why, and the other authors here oblige by doing their best to ‘guess’ what is wrong with it. Sometimes nobody can figure it out!
I would like to think most people here are not asking why their track was rejected simply so that they can then indignantly or aggressively disagree. Most don’t want to argue with the reviewer (maybe one or two do!) they just want to know so that they can improve and get better. Surely that will benefit the Envato community as a whole?
Have a great day dudes.
Tascam US-144. I seem to be the only one using it !!
I don’t really see the point in any more than two, one for ex and one for non-ex. What is there to gain from having multiple accounts?
Awesome, well done ! Now you have an extra follower as well.
I’d say the actual review process and level of quality control here is of some of the highest standard I have encountered. A lot of the big online libraries don’t even listen to music once you have been accepted as an author.
This is quite a simple one – does it make any difference to sales when your track is reviewed and put online? For many of us, that first hour or so when our music is making it’s way along the new items section on the homepage is the most exposure we have. It looks like to me that as soon as a track is approved it’s there, and the time it happens is totally random as the reviewers are dotted around the globe, so my question is have you noticed that more sales are garnered when that happens at a particular time of day? I know this could get confusing as we’re all in different time zones, (I am in the UK).
I had a conversation with a guy which went back and forth for over week. He kept wanting me to tweak the drums on a hip-hop track and every time I re-sent it he said ‘my supervisor says it’s not right’. In the end I just gave up. As far as I was concerned he’d heard the track on the preview and purchased it already so he knew what the drums sounded like. What was I supposed to do – spend a forty hour week working on a track for my ten dollars commission?
In short – yes it is. I have two accounts with the same email address. Neither of them sell any tunes !!
