Pay my monthly student loan bill…
I have watched the members grow by over 1,000 new members within less than half a day. Looks like the Envato marketplace is gaining roughly ~1,500-2,000 new members a day. That is quite insane if you think about it.
Congrats AJ and good luck authors!
Every single moment and thought… Just look around you…
Put up your best work and allow your music to brand itself… I cannot imagine any other method.
You need the Extended license if you ever want to sell the game.
If it is a Free game then the regular license is fine.
Why buy the license twice? A regular and an extended… Just buy the one you need.
One last thing… Make sure the item you buy and the author you buy it from actually sells extended licenses. Some people do and some people do not.
I say keep the prices as they are… just give a bigger percent to the artists. That’s all we artists really want anyways. More recognition and appreciation for our work (credits, money or warm thank you’s and words of wonder).
Yes, please try another $2-3 price increase across the board… you don’t need to do anything wildly complicated. Also, please lower the rate/time at which you can move up % wise… it takes a long. long time to break through to the next % cut. Every increase of $.10 counts… but it should not take so many years for a lot of people to get to 60-65%. A price and payout rate that is in all honesty only fair from the beginning.
Help the authors and help the music business by allowing authors a more fair compensation for their work. The market will decide the rest.
Its just like life man… ups and downs… sometimes your hot, sometimes your cold.
Don’t worry about AJ and focus on whats important. Allow it to do its thing in quiet silence while your continue to push your personal boundaries.
My recommendation to you is to upload more songs and tracks. Only having two is quite limiting.
It takes time, but I think once people start associating you with a certain style they will begin to search you out more and more.
Hang in there… those who give up early never really know.
It’s probably not going to be your typical suggestion, but I love Jeskola Buzz (it is free) and the modular aspect is the coolest thing in the world.
As for a library I would go for something like Native Instruments Komplete ($500-$600)
Should give you more than what you need to do whatever you want as long as you put in the time to learn and some basic music theory.
