Hey guys! I have a question for you all and I hope one of you has been through this and can answer me. I made a pack recently but wasn’t satisfied at the end with the combination of the songs. I know you can’t put a song in another pack once it’s in one pack, but if you delete the pack and then put the song in a different pack, is that ok? I’d love to have some clarifications on this before I make the silly mistake of deleting a pack and then finding that all the songs that were in it are ineligible to be in future packs!
Yeah, I don’t think envato would ever have that to be honest, ZtarrZound said, there would be way too many people using the same tags, hence rendering them useless. Besides the fact that I think a lot of people already copy tags from the top authors. I personally write down whatever I was thinking when I composed the piece that way the clients get an idea what i had in mind when I wrote the piece. Besides having odd tags may even help you as a client may use strange words in the search and if you’re the lucky guy that wrote in the right tag, you’ll be in luck and you’ll score a random sale!
Envato, we need this, it would make things so much easier for clients! Great idea felt_tips!
You have some nice ideas there, no matter what keep making music man!
It has it’s value man. Just take everyone’s advice and try to apply it. AudioJungle reviewers are very strict about mixing and sound quality so I wouldn’t submit that until you’ve really had a go at remixing it. Don’t confuse loudness with dynamics, you can still accentuate the strength of the drums to represent your heart without losing the rest of the instruments.
I can see why it could be annoying, personally I would prefer to download a pack that DOES have subfolders but those would not be zipped. It would be a little hassle having to unzip each one after unzipping the main one. Basically I think AudioJungle make you do it this way to make it that little bit easier for the customer… call it customer satisfaction right?
Hey BrownHouse, First of all, I want to apologise, I can see how my wording may have offended you and perhaps many other established authors and that’s the last thing I wanted to do. I did say that it did not mean that the established authors weren’t as good, later on in the post.
I was actually referring to other unmanaged accounts you see from 2 or 3 years back where the composer merely uploaded some songs and left it at that without ever coming back to it and ever signing in again. Again, nothing wrong with that either, if your career is so good that you don’t need to come here, good for you.
But yeah, if you read my other posts from before I have nothing but high praise for top authors like PinkZebra, Tim Mcmorris and Gareth Coker for making such a great career out of this. The are NOT composers that put their b-list stuff there and maintain such a high level of craft that they do not even have a b-list. So just to make it clear, my above post was NOT attacking top authors but instead more the older unmanaged accounts where the music is still admittedly really good but the profile site shows that if you email the guy from AudioJungle, he probably won’t answer.
I’d personally say that a lot of the best music out here is from the newer authors. There’s tons of people that uploaded a huge portfolio a few years back and just earn from their catalogues, a lot of these composers are established composers that pretty much put their b-list stuff here before AudioJungle became big just to earn a bit extra.
But seriously, look out for the rising stars, they have tons of good stuff. Some guys that have been here less than a year and I recommend are:
TacoMusic – http://audiojungle.net/user/tacoMusic (it says 3 years on his profile but he’s only been uploading here for less than a year)
JCKerosene – http://audiojungle.net/user/JCKerosene
BlueFoxMusic – http://audiojungle.net/user/BlueFoxMusic
Gari Biasillo – http://audiojungle.net/user/gbiasillo
Allegro120 – http://audiojungle.net/user/Allegro120
Phil Larson – http://audiojungle.net/user/PhilLarson
Basspartout – http://audiojungle.net/user/Basspartout
These are all guys that have been here less than a year but are doing a really great job. I’ve listened to a lot of their music and I really recommend giving them a listen to see what it takes to do well here. Now I’m not saying that the established guys aren’t as good, not at all, but these guys are hungry and determined and you see it in their music!
In general check out a lot of the people that you see a lot on forums… (the theory I’m about to state I’m ripping straight out of Freakonomics) Just because someone goes on forums a lot doesn’t mean they are a better musician, but the the type of person that is constantly trying to learn more about being a better musician/producer/engineer/music businessman by going on forums is at least taking the right step to improving themselves so they must have something to them!
