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 :)

Of course you may know this, but generally speaking when it comes to recording, a stereo recording of instruments should be used whenever the sound of the space your working in (acoustics of the room with the instrument) must be replicated as accurately as possible. Your mic’s polar pattern is also a key factor in this.

I also find that these days I’ll use a stereo pair of condenser mics to capture acoustic guitar performances for songs that have very few instruments, whereas I will record in mono if there are a wide range of instruments.

Unless I am experimenting, the majority of very low frequency instruments are recorded in mono. Main vocals too.

Since these rules typically apply to recording, I also use them when selecting samples too.

That’s interesting technically but doesn’t sound good for me. :)

Yeah haha, me neither :) I suspect they would not pass AJ review! Interesting nevertheless what it actually took to accomplish.
