some more math and considerations, then… from the top author page for each marketplace, you can get the total number of authors with at least one sale:
TF 3405
CC 3351
VH 3597
AJ 7971
GR 10103
PD 4492
3DO 1169
AD 2230

total= 36.318

out of 4.008.114 members (right now), it is less than 1%. it means that 1 member every 110 had at least one sale. the other 3.971.796 either are buyers or never had any sale or are just people registered with no activity. it would be nice to know who many authors are here without a single sale to have a complete overview.
moreover, based on the amount of sales of “top authors” of the month in each category, i can suppose that each month envato sells hundreds of thousands of items. in a year envato should have millions of sales. that means that the 4.008.114 members are also very active in buying stuff on this marketplace…

as i side note, i must say that in audiojungle chart i’m about in position 500 out of about 8000 authors. that’s not actually bad! :) and i can stil sell my music to a lot of people! :)

why instead of naming the file “preview” an automatic file name such as: author_songname.mp3 (maybe also upload date: author_songname_uploaddate.mp3 ) is not created? the upload date should prevent doubling the same filename from the same author, if this is really possible. is it so complicated?

in any case, i always try to add tag to my mp3, to point on my profile page.

I recently listened to a “tarantella” on youtube, a traditional music from south Italy. I got the idea to play something in this style, so I found a score by someone called L. Criscuolo e tried it with mandolin and guitar. here it is! :)

i have komplete 8 and i’m very tempted about 9 ultimate update. but it’s about 350 euro… not so cheap, indeed… and i don’t know if i can justify it given the small earn from royalyfree music. but it can be really i nice toy. i’m not sure i’ll need everything that is included. the kontakt libraries (expecially damage) seems very cool, but i really don’t know how much i will use all the stuff! :-/

btw: the HDD included cannot be used to stream the kontakt library, just for the install. you will need another drive to place the samples.

... come on buyers, help me buy the update! :D

I agree… It would be useful to edit the submission once submitted! :-)

thanks for sharing this. i completely agree to your conclusions, and i have similar results to yours! the drawback is the effort to promote the different accounts. of course focusing on just one market would be easy but being non-exclusive means that there are months in which you sell more on one and less on the other… at least you are averaging on multiple places

maybe there is a way to exclude a particular keyword?
