Envato, you have 9 marketplaces selling pretty different things, even all digital. Why don’t you think on each marketplace independently when thinking about licenses?
I can’t agree more. When I saw the announcement, I got excited. But as far as I can see this is just another of those Envato announcements, where no useful improvement happens, but it is explained with so much words as if it will bring so much on the table. The truth is, it won’t. At least, we authors won’t be the ones who benefit from it as long as you keep insisting these kind of issues to be solved as a whole. Please treat all the marketplaces individually in this “ongoing licence project”.

This is an old thread but as I see it is bumped and one of the best soundtracks is not mentioned yet, I felt like I should mention “the best soundtrack ever”.
Does anyone here remember “Outlaws” ? In my opinion, it is one of the best video games to date and has “the best” soundtrack ever.
“Where are you Marshall?”
I recently saw this thread and just wanted to say that I 100 % agree with SkyProductions. There is no need to say more. Cheers.
Good luck to all contestants!
Great works, and thank you all for putting lots of effort into these videos.
Still, I think there is only one author who just nailed it, right on the spot! And I vote for that person, of course
It is truly amazing to see, whenever these kind of threads show up, it is always the person who starts the thread to blame. Not someone else
Is there anyone to consider that maybe it is time for Envato to expand the reviewer team? Don’t get me wrong, I do and I always will know that those guys are dealing with huge amount of work and they do everything they can to review dozens of submissions in a limited time. But, considering the excessive increase of the new members/authors, I think it is time to take some other action than to expect the current reviewer team to do the all the work.
Well, saying “follow the guidelines” is easy for an old member of this community. Confirming this suggestion is even easier for the rest of us. But, I must remind you all, that there are lots of new members as well, and there will be many many more, every single day. We all know that Envato (especially Audiojungle) is growing immensely. So, there will always be some guy who is doing mistakes, as we all did while we were a newbie, until we get used to the whole system. We can not simply expect someone to join Audiojungle and make no mistakes, plus, to compose super acceptable material, or their very best! It is not impossible, but highly unlikely. So just imagine this time next year. How huge is the workload going to be for reviewers? I can not even imagine.
Long story short, I must say I find the title partly true. Someone really needs to wake up. But I don’t believe that someone is our lovely reviewer team.
P.S: There will be dozens more threads like this one, as long as new members keep coming, and try to explore their ways around the community. Get over it.
KRK I should be able to demo (actually the Best Buy down the street has them in their music department, and I think Guitar Center does as well). I do know that Rokits for their price range can’t be beat, but I don’t think I’ve heard the VXTs.
Price is always an issue , but I’m trying over a couple of years to put together the best stereo chain I can. This year was all about preamps and mics, next year monitors and headphones, etc. Given that it’s so essential to the end product I’m willing to push the price range into the 1000-1500 USD range for better-than-entry-level nearfields, with the thought that I’d be able to keep them and add a sub once I upgrade my studio (in the waaaay distant future).Genelecs have some monitors in that range, e.g. the 8030A, but I’ve heard multiple musicians say they sound too good, so that the mix sounds awesome in the studio but once you play it back elsewhere it’s not what you wanted. Of course, it seems like when you see pictures of big studios you’ll often see Genelecs in the background, so that must count for something. Have you had experience with them?
You are more than welcome Joel.
Yes, Genelecs sound just incredibly good but I think the tools should be the last thing to blame if a mix sounds bad I mean, as you already know, it always sounds good in a studio, no matter what the setup is. Because most of the time we listen what we record with high volume levels and this makes us to be unable to hear the details which makes that mix sounds not that good when playing elswhere. I only had two hours of listening experience with a pair of 8250A and another pair of 1037C. I have listened various types of guitar, drums and stringed instrument recordings, a couple of mixdowns, one fully mixed & mastered song and also a frequency test, in a studio. I still wish I had the chance to play around with them just a little longer because while I was on my way back to home, I was unable to get them out of my mind. They were that good! So now it is like my goal to have a pair of them in the waaaaaay distant future, as you put it
As for KRK , I have no experience with those VXTs either, so I can not say much about them. But overall, KRK is a good company and I don’t think they would ruin their reputation by producing bad monitors.
If you have the chance to demo KRK , do not miss that chance. KRK produces pretty solid monitors. Strong, reliable devices those KRK ’s. I believe you will agree when you heard the sound coming out of them. Also, Adam is a great company when it comes to monitors. I have never heard bad comments from the Adam owners I know.
But, if the price is not an issue, I would strongly suggest you to grab a pair of Genelec and forget about any kind of upgrade for the rest of your life
Good luck with the gear hunt!
