Just to serve as a reminder from the original post, nominations to the Free File of the Month have to be rated 4 stars or higher before they can be considered. Got caught out myself on that one. Cheers!

Criteria for Selection

In order for a file to be considered as a Free File of the Month for any Marketplace the file must meet the following criteria:

  • You must be the author of the file you’re submitting.
  • The file must be rated 4 stars or higher.+
I saw some tracks nominated without rate. ¿ was changed the criteria selection?

Yep, you’re right, well spotted.

Oh well, scrap that idea then. And I can’t imagine items from non-exclusive portfolios being promoted as a free AJ items either, so I guess I’ll just have to wait for those dreaded, slow drip ratings to come in! :sick:

Hey Paul, I’ve just dropped you an email regarding this. I would have posted it here, but unfortunately would contain information that could contravene the forum rules. Seems you’re not the only one experiencing this!

I don’t want to spoil the party, but I discovered that the winning tracks all in all are not the biggest sellers. The taste of the jury seems to differ from the taste of the customers.

Party pooper :P

I like the way this kind of threads always end. A reviewer says his word and everybody congratulate him, system is working!
Or you could say that he provided a bunch of useful tips in an article that a lot of people, myself included, will benefit from for a while. Gareth also gave a good explanation for why the track was rejected, so I think Gae47 has got a quite a few things he can take away from the comments. What’s ‘systematic’ about providing useful info?

Absolutely +1.

Hi, a couple of weeks ago, I was downloading these files as previews: https://0.s3.envato.com/files/70926054/preview.mp3 https://3.s3.envato.com/files/42241956/preview.mp3

Now I would like to buy them, but I can`t find them anymore.

I was searching already for the numbers, but without an result.

Could someone help me?

Here you go:

http://audiojungle.net/item/hypersonic-synth-theme/2960492

In the future, you can use soundizer.com to upload your mp3 samples (using the ‘search by sample’ on the left panel), in order to track down the item. Hope that helps! :)

many of the (exclusive or non exclusive) authors here , are selling the same tracks on other sites, and when you take a look in the information of the songs you can see “registered by a Pro”. Not allowed.

People will need to practice caution with this and not make too many assumptions, if opting to go on an author reporting mission. It’s correct that it’s currently not allowed to upload PRO registered tracks to AJ, but PRO registered composers can still submit here (to my knowledge, at least).

One big problem with many other marketplaces is that it will suggest that individual tracks are PRO registered by default, when in fact this is incorrect. It’s the composer that is registered with the PRO, and not the tracks themselves set up for collecting royalties. That’s a big difference in this situation.

I’m currently in the process of trying to clear up a right dog’s dinner with this issue myself.

Hi Anthony, welcome aboard! :)

This question came up very recently here and I added a few of my own findings regarding promotion. Feel free to take a look and good luck! :)

Being outside of my typical genre, yet wanting to enter the contest, I sought out a preset (loop) library. Added more to it and (thought) I rearranged it. I obviously didn’t do enough like Alumo mentioned here earlier.
Oh dear, the curse of the dubstep-contest. You are granted absolution. This bloody dubstep-thing made a lot of us go crazy. :)

And the reviewers too, no doubt! :)

And 6 new ones from a VERY high profile company/sample developer in the last 12 hours…..

Yep, just got the email about that one in the last hour! Typical, or rather topical.

(Anyway Gareth, as a side note, don’t think I didn’t just notice your new badge! ;) Did I miss an announcement? You’ve messed up my Elite count now! Anyway huge congrats from me on that sir! )
