I bought my panels from ATS acoustics. Easy to find on google. They were great and my drums sound FREAKING AMAZING after I put these suckers up.
Sorry for the cell phone quality pic.
I’ve mentioned this before and I don’t have any suggestions of what to do about it. It sucks when your item get’s approved in the evening (in the US).
Now the standard reply when someone mentions this is “Buyers come from all over the world, not just the USA,” but when I check my analytics, I find that when a track gets approved on a weekday morning it gets 35 to 50 views that first 24 hours. When it gets approved at 9:00 PM, it will get 5-10 views the 24 hours. This is the difference between a successful track and a track that just sneaks into the bowels of page 5 by 8:00 am.
The point is not front page exposure, it’s how far back it get’s pushed, and the buyer’s search fatigue.
I have no suggestions or ideas of how to fix it, but it is frustrating for sure. We all work so hard on our tracks. I get giddy with joy when I get an e-mail that says “your audiojungle item needs improvement”, because I can time my resubmission and almost guarantee sales for myself.
I don’t make mistakes on purpose to get to resubmit, but if I did, it would fix this problem but it feels like cheating so I don’t do it, but I know there just HAS to be folks who do! Thoughts? Numbers?
Yeah I am going to start producing music full time so it’s time to go big or go home!
I don’t know if this is a good idea, but I’m leaning towards rebranding my profile. I just started a brand new recording studio called Prismic Studios. Things are coming along nicely! I’m posting from inside the studio next to the grand piano I moved in this morning.
I really love the Lamp logo and the sparkles, I really feel it’s recognizable and works for me pretty well, but I’m going to put my main focus into making stock music and want to sell it under the name of the new studio.I’m going to go with the same graphic designer that I used before, who also happens to have introduced me to envato! http://audiojungle.net/user/derekfitzpatrick Check out his work! I’m subletting an office out to him and we will collaborate regularly on projects for the envato network.
“Prismic” is a portmanteau of “cosmic” and “Prism”, so let’s see what it will look like in the end!
Any of you guys who have rebranded, how has it affected your experience here? Did you notice a boost or a drag?
Here’s the latest image from my studio!
24 2’x4’ 4” fabric panels plus four bass traps will arrive by next Friday!
new congas, banjo and mandolin.
This is my first post from Prismic Studios! The internet is connected, the drums have arrived, and I purchased today, Congas, Banjo, and Mandolin!
My humble opinion is that your tracks aren’t selling due to your instrumentation, that is, your choice of what instruments are playing, not your melodies or chords or even really your mixing. Your most recent five tracks feature a violin that’s easy to tell that it has been synthesized, even for a non musician. For instance, your track, “simple reflection” would be selling like hotcakes if you played the melody in unison on a piano and glockenspiel, put lots of nice reverb but not too much, and maybe just hinted at the strings in soft chords underneath the piano.
When you use virtual instruments, they might impress you when you spend a lot of time working with them. Make sure you get on youtube once in a while and listen to the real thing and ask yourself if it really sounds real. Also, listen to all the top selling items and ask your self if you are putting out stuff that’s on par with the top selling items.
All that said you have good clean recordings with interesting melodies and nice chord changes. Find ways to increase the realism.
I recommend learning acoustic guitar, you only really need to know 5 or 6 chords to make stock music. Overdub shakers, tambourines, anything organic. Organic music sells.
Good luck and keep producing! You’re stuff is really good!
