Some of my favorite tracks are my hard rock tunes and they don’t sell worth a ding dang. Here’s probably my favorite AJ hard rock tune: http://audiojungle.net/item/theres-talk-of-rock/241765

I don’t know…maybe the talk box triggers some sort of bad Peter Frampton flashback! (We’ve all had them.)

As much a part of the classic Deep Purple sound as Richie Blackmore. King of the distorted B3!

What’s it trying to tell me? That I’m old? Doesn’t it think I know that? (Remember, you’re only as young as you smell.)

AudioJungle is home to some amazingly talented musicians. I feel lucky that I get to work along side you. Long live creativity!

That was a joke.

I certainly don’t plan on screwing around and not submitting anything else for the rest of the year. Like I said, an few old songs seems to be selling as of late, so it strikes me that all options are open. It was a goal to shoot for then decide from there. Some authors have said when a song doesn’t sell or not sell well after a period of time, they move it to another site to spread a track’s potential. If you don’t do it, great. A business game is always good to revisit every once in awhile.

Hi: With all due respect, that’s a crummy idea. My July is a perfect example of why. It has been as if someone has been going through my portfolio, purposely buying my least selling music. Things from my first year that had only sold once or twice. I’m dang glad those tracks are still there. Now, if you feel that you’ve grown since your early music—you’ve grown as a mixer and you’re not liking what you hear, that’s a different story. But if you still believe in those early tracks you can always remix and resubmit. (I just hit 100 in my portfolio and I plan on screwing off for the rest of the year. Anybody?)

So I’ve hit my goal of having 100 tracks in my portfolio. Does anyone else have a marketing plan of a base volumes of tracks to maintain? I have tracks that don’t sell so the game plan now was to delete an old track after each new upload is approved.

I know that portfolio size is not necessarily a determination of sales, but it seems that to us newbies, volume is like spreading a larger web to catch more flies.

On another note, as of late (April, May, June), many of my older tracks with historically low hits/no sales, started selling. Anyone else been seeing this pattern? Cheers.

Here we go again! A BIG thumbs down to automatic watermarking. I want control over where the watermarks go as well as well as their audio levels. One size does not fit all when it comes to the volume of watermarks when laid over music. If you have a lot of difficulty adding watermarks to your demo, it may be an audio skill you need to be working on to improve.

First two of many, I’m sure. Your stuff is tasty! Welcome.


Congratulations! I’ll celebrate with you (not to steal your thunder) but I just sold my (first) 2 tracks, though not extended licenses, today! I wish more success for you.

Oh, they exist. I had four last month and I’d never come close to that before. Even rarer (for me) is the “referral cut” and I woke up to my first one of those this morning!

Keep hope alive!!!

Oops, I saw “Gari” and thought it was aimed at me…I ‘m referring to the Equator D5 monitors.


For their size they put out better bass information than any monitors I’ve experienced before. I had a sub-woofer on my wish list but I don’t need it now.


I have a pair of KRK Rokit 5s, which replaced my [blown] Tannoys.
Hi Gari, yes, I have these monitors. I find they can lack some bottom end and in turn my mixes became overly bassy… Although, I am getting used to them and compensating for this. Overall, good.
