I am game, west of the Mississippi is better for me (Nashville is good)
The adams I use are the P11’a with the Sub 8 woofer.
I agree that we all choose to upload here and are free to leave if we don’t like the pricing etc… I just think as a member of the community it would be in everyone’s best interest too see a price increase.
I would personally like to see a minimum pricing or a tired pricing that you could choose from. That would keep out the low ball pricing but allow authors some say in the pricing of their tracks as well.
Adams and NS10’s
The argument about pricing assumes it is the only reason a track is purchased. I can guarantee that if you doubled the prices on Tim McMorris, Soundroll and PinkZebra and left all of the other author prices the same they would still be the top selling authors. Quality trumps price.
The most frustrating thing about the low prices on AJ are that they are hurting both Envato and the authors. In business you can sell at too high of a price AND you can sell at too low of a price – both are bad for business.
As far as setting your own price – other markets do this and interestingly enough their average prices are easily double what they are on AJ. Sure there are some authors that set crazy low pricing but the serious composers with great portfolios know the value of their music and price it a market / competitive rate. The best selling tracks 9 out of 10 times are the higher priced tracks.
