I finished and uploaded my latest track “Spanish Fire,” but I thought the sampled trumpet was a little weak. So I did a search for “trumpet” here in the forum and found Mihai Sorohan. I asked Mihai if he’d mind adding some trumpet to my track and he readily agreed. [Link removed] The result is pretty awesome. Hopefully I’ll be able to help Mahai with something in the future.
This was a lot of fun and easy to do. I’ll be collaborating again for sure, and I highly recommend others try it.
I’d like to thank the academy, my barber, my spiritualist Carl, my proctologist, and most important, Millard Filmore, the 13th President of the United States. (And of course the people responsible for those 500 sales. Customers are cool!)
It’s right there on my profile page! I don’t know to treat it or how to get rid…what? It’s a good thing? Never mind.
Happy Holidays Everybody!!!
While it is nice to see those nice big golden stars on your profile page, I think I agree with you about dropping the stars altogether—they’re not needed. The vast majority of my tracks haven’t been rated at all, and they sell just fine.
I think something has to be done, i hope they get rid of the star rating system all together personally. On the other marketplaces it comes in useful because the buyers are rating the quality of service – information on how to use the item, support for the customer etc. but here on Audiojungle we don’t need to provide support to the customer as they know exactly what they are buying, which means they are just rating based on the item itself…. so why rate it? if it was good enough for them to purchase in the first place and it was the perfect item for their project then why give it less than 5 stars? it is not needed here. it only puts other people off buying an item with less than 5 stars.
I know many of us have dealt with the problem of someone buying a track and then giving it a low rating. Why would someone buy something they don’t like??? I get annoyed when someone gives one of my tracks three stars, but I read of someone who bought a track and gave it ONE star.
How about the option of dropping all stars from a track—starting over in other words. Perhaps limit it to a track that has only been rated once. I’ve got plenty of tracks that have not been rated at all, but that’s better than a track sitting there with one low rating, which makes people think it’s an inferior track when it may have just been somebody who was in a sour mood that day.
A BIG thumbs down to automatic watermarking. No way would I want to give up the ability to place the watermarks where I want them to go. Automatic watermarks run the risk of not protecting what needs to be, like an intro or outro, and covering up something you want people to hear.
From what I’ve read here, I suspect that some artists don’t actually know how to apply manual watermarks correctly. Here’s your opportunity to learn a new skill!
As for doing away with watermarking altogether? Do you enjoy working for free? Giving away your music? Do you know how easy it is to record audio off the net?
Do I need to have my question mark key taken away from me?
I always thought the weekends should be a great time to make sales. People are at home and have the time to stretch out and search for exactly what they need. But I too sell next-to-nothing on the weekends. I can almost hear the tumbleweeds rolling forlornly down the dusty streets of my portfolio.
Wow. I want to do a medly of two old, obviously public domain Christmas songs with a similar sound and theme. I wanted to know if in this particular instance it is OK to do a medly. I asked one AJ guy here who indicated in the past he was fine with questions or advice, and he just told me to go to customer support. From them I got this:Unfortunately a project like that would most likely not get approved for copyright concerns. More information about our copyright policy can be found here: http://wiki.envato.com/support/legal-terms/legal-user-terms-and-conditions/ http://wiki.envato.com/support/legal-terms/legal-membership-terms-and-conditions/
Nothing at either link about my question. There aren’t any copyright issues because they’re public domain. I just want to know if it’s OK to do this medly. Anybody know?
Back when the BB started up I put one track in and sort of forgot about it. I think it sold once, and I never checked to see if it reverted back to a regular library file at the regular price. This past week it’s sold three times out of the blue, and I checked to find it still in the Bargain Basement at $3.00. I’m not complaining and will leave it there, but I’m wondering if anybody knows why it never reverted back and why I’m suddenly getting sales from it, months after putting it in the bin.
Useful article, although you can get a good little SPL meter for under 20 bucks on eBay. I just got one and it’s a very handy tool to have.
I also get “compression fatigue” a lot. When I listen repeatedly to something with a lot of compression, i actually start to feel a little ill. Anyone else?
