An enormous congratulations to Envato and to the people who have worked hard to make this possible. This is one of the greatest advances in a very long time and will be an amazing cross promotional tool to have at our disposal. This creates a whole new level of great exposure possibilities for both authors and AudioJungle!

This goes to show us once more that while some changes don’t happen as quickly as we’d like them to, AudioJungle has been consistent in improving the marketplace for its authors and buyers over the years – and I am confident that this trend will continue.

So thanks Envato for making this the best marketplace of its kind in the world, and I’m very excited to hear about the other developments Scott alluded to!

Back when I became an author…

- 2 sales got you in to the “popular files” page

- Almost no one on AudioJungle bothered with much page design at all.

- No one ever celebrated their sales on the forums. It became a trend a few years later.

I’ve purchased about 20 or so songs from AudioJungle authors just to listen to them. I admire the work of many of my comrades! :)

I would tend to somewhat agree a bit, of course not the “crap” part but yes your tracks do sound all abit the same and they are overused. Never used them just because of that reason :) But anyway I got my favorit one it’s the Genesis. I will definetly use that one someday with some lifting off rocket or some space scene.

Ha ha, I totally get it :) Bottom line on AJ (in fact all marketplaces) is however, if you want to make really good money, you are going to have to sell what people are actually looking for. If I feel like being completely off the wall artistic, I’ll release some music on iTunes. If I want to sell royalty free music, I make no bones about writing music geared toward heavy use. Who wants to spend a ton of time on something that has no return? Not me.

A lot of my material (vocal more so perhaps) sounds similar not because I am incapable of producing anything different, but because people keep buying it – and authors keep using it, and their projects keep selling. So, if sales keep coming, no need to change anything.

With mega exposure though, this always happens. People get sick of hearing ANYTHING by you, good or not. Until that is, you release the next thing and it fits perfectly in their new project (which also happens to be the same projects they also keep re-making because they also sell like hotcakes) :D

To add my thoughts about the topic while I’m here, I occasionally e-mail an author who’s work I admire to ask if they would like to work together. I do it for the joy of it and for producing an awesome project together – it can be a lot of fun and have great rewards beyond sales too. It will be one e-mail though. If someone is not interested, just move on. Simple as that.

For the record, VideoHive authors are not the only ones getting spam e-mail from AJ authors. I have seen my fair share of “Oh please write some music for my next awesome project that is going to change the world!!!!” e-mails. The bottom line is, it does actually go both ways.

I just hope everyone is sensible enough to not cast aside genuinely mutually beneficial partnerships because some new authors are grasping at straws.

P.S: Thanks @juanmita, that’s very kind :)

i actually disagree somewhat. i find a lot of really interesting new Authors with maybe 3 or 4 fresh new items, far more interesting than the same old boring Tim McMorris crap that’s used everywhere.

...pulling … dagger… out… of…heart… :D

My apologies my good sir, I shall do my best to release the best non-crap ever heard, in the future! :)

Understandable that it’s a big task to police, however, when it is discovered that a user is uploading exclusive music to other royalty free sites – ban them for life..

This isn’t something that really needs second chances is it? A harsh penalty would greatly discourage it I believe. The main people do it is because the ramifications are so small.

<div id="player_div1">
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://s3.envato.com/audioplayer/player.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">// <![CDATA[
var client = new EnvatoPlayerClient({
id: "player_div1", // this identifies the container element for the player

Hey there friend :)

If you want more than one player on a page at a time then you have to change the div id (in two place for every player) to a unique number for each player. A “div” is basically a container that holds the player.

So, for example – in this section of code above:

You will see I have the div id as “player_div1” in two places? It needs to be the same in those two places for each player to work.

Then now on the next player, make those two spots “player_div2” and increment the number for each player so they all have unique id’s.

Hope that helps :)

EDIT: http://audiojungle.net/forums/thread/downloaded-previews-not-showing-up/126860

Sorry, please lock.


Over the last 2 days I’ve hand a ton of people write me asking for preview files from AJ because they said they can’t download them. The oldest one said he contacted support 4 or 5 days ago about the issue without response so my first note isn’t going to go there just yet.

First, is everyone having the same issue?

When I click download it opens a window to save, but nothing actually downloads. Obviously a very big problem if it’s everyone.

Thanks :)
