Not sure entirely if these songs will work, but give it a try! I do a lot of orchestrating with wind instruments, strings and such in addition to more upbeat pop rock type tracks…if you’d like a freelance job, I’d be more than happy to give you what you need. Or if one of these tracks sound good, go for it!The Positive Oboe (lighter oboe/pizzicato strings based):
Looking Up (pop rock):
Ukelele Freedom (happy pop rock):
Playing in the Park (piano/strings pizz pop):
i’m a buyer and i have a topic.
i’m not going to name names but i have 2 files from different authors that i play through itunes and they sound fine. i recently got some m-audio studio monitors and i just started using astoundsound. i hear popping and clicking so bad it’s not even funny. if you have this program i have it set on preamp o db and stereo expansion at 3/4. i contacted the author’s and one says ” i can’t help ”. i’ve read that authors sales are down and blah blah blah and how can they get more customers. look i like this site but if i buy something and i’m having an issue i expect some sort of how can i help. resend a different file format for the song that i just bought, something to make me believe you want to help. this is also an issue on the other popular sister sites. all the authors are trying to figure a way to make more sales. it starts with customer service.anyways that’s my rant.
if the file sounds fine in iTunes, then its not the authors files that are at fault, it’s the new software (astoundsound) and speakers that you are using. if there is anyone at fault, its the developers of astoundsound. i doubt the m-audio monitors are giving you trouble.
for instance, i have songs from popular artists in different media players (iTunes, Spotify, etc.) and in some programs, the songs get pops and clicks. I’m talking like Lady Gaga and such….not just random indie artists. If the popping involved an artist like The Beatles, would you get angry at Capitol for supplying you songs that only pop in certain programs, but sound fine on iTunes?
I’m sorry, but you’re complaint just doesn’t make any sense to me. It’s the program or import method that you are using that is screwing up the songs, not the source file created by the author himself.
What do you all use for your big cinematic drums + percussion??? I’m trying to figure out what type of virtual instrument software I should get for the THUNDER DRUMS and other various film music percussion.
attaining a U.S. copyright is expensive (about $35 a song)...so what I do is find ways to prove I made songs with a timestamp (i.e. mailing it to myself on a CD), but when it comes to stuff I don’t put on AJ (like stuff for my band), I actually do apply for a copyright because obviously when you’re dealing with the record label world it’s imperative you have a legal copyright to fight back in case label peeps try to rip you off.
here’s an example of one of my “officially” copyrighted songs that was just used in a Pepsi ad for Sobe (thank GOD I got the copyright before this ad hit TV!)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySKfT4QROkE
thank you, Tim! Yes I do. My band is my real project and AJ is just kinda my side thing. Hopefully we’ll be able to take it to the next level with our new management
BTW , I really love your stuff…it’s very very very high quality and all of your music is excellent.
