It makes me sick to my stomach. The value of music is constantly being belittled and overlooked.

Just curious, how can you say a comment like this while being a published author on www.AudioJungle.com? Don’t see anything wrong with the logic here? Almost as backwards as selling a license which has no implication of credit, then complaining when you don’t get credit.

I totally understand how you guys feel and completely agree with you, but this is not exactly the right marketplace to be taking part in if you have these opinions about your creative work and “fairness.”

Every single author on this website is contributing to the devaluation of music.

So, because you sell stock music, you devaluate it?
So, because you sell at an affordable price you’re not entitled to… you know, respect?
So, because you are on Audio Jungle you can’t complain about somebody stealing the credits? (the word is “stealing” as in somebody else pretending it was done by them)

It’s weird to get a hard rejection after a soft rejection. From what I hear now in my computer speakers, it’s a nice musical idea, a bit cliche but a cliche became a cliche because it works, so, that;s not the problem.
The harmony is a bit repetitive, it’s same chord progression all over again, try to change things for a “B” part, and then come back to the first progression.
Also, the drums seem too “in your face” for that style. The snare doesn’t work for me in the context.
The whole dynamics seem a bit squished. It’s weird to have same volume when you have a piano solo, and same volume when you have full band + drums.
That’s what I got so far.

Here, depending on your budget, anything from a Zoom (small and light) to something like this ( http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/325631-REG/Sound_Devices_744T_744T_4_Channel_Portable_Audio.html ) equipped with a shotgun mic gives you stellar results :)

Thanks :)

Sound_Devices 744T dimensions: 45 mm x 209 mm x 125 mm
Still slightily bigger, and that’s without the microphone, stand, cables and the wind shield…


Unfortunately, my sensei never taught me the art of penguin sounds.
Because I’m vegetarian, I’m specialized into making vegetable sounds. I make fairly decent impressions of potatoes, carrots and cabbage, but because I’m also a ninja (which is a big secret, by the way), those sounds nobody can hear…

2-Travel is no problem, but how many of us go to vacation with their studio microphones, preamps, stands, recorders…etc?
Well, every stock photographer/videographer on the planet does this, so I would assume it’s not uncommon for stock SFX producers. Kind of part of the game if you want variety. :)
Well, having one camera and a tripod =/= two microphones, cables to the power source, more cables to the preamp, more cables from preamp to soundcard, computer, speakers or headphones to chect that out… a bit more stuff to carry around.
Of course you could have just a recorder but you won’t get THAT high quality… or you might. Technology is evolving.

1. How is possible to have EXACTLY same sounds?
I can’t find two identical elephant sounds no matter how I search/sort. What was your exact search/sort?

2. Ho is possible to have nature sounds that you sell if you are not in the location where you could get those sounds?
Are you kidding? I do think most countries (a few exceptions) allow their citizens to travel…

1-The sound was removed and when I logged in on AJ I found a new badge, “Copyright Ninja”, so, it was something like that…

Hi there
Sometimes I post here as an author, but this time I post as a client.
We are working on a cartoon which includes an elephant and I thought is a good idea to search here first for an elephant noise. In my first search I got on the second and third places (first was a song for some reason) two tracks that are EXACTLY the same, from two different authors.
http://audiojungle.net/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&term=elephant

One is from Canada, another is from an undisclosed location. I’m pretty sure you can’t find too many elephants in Canada (maybe in a zoo), but here are my questions:
1. How is possible to have EXACTLY same sounds?
2. Ho is possible to have nature sounds that you sell if you are not in the location where you could get those sounds?
3. Anyone interested into buying penguin sounds from me? (that’s a joke, yes… a joke)

It’s ok. I have it and I use it. It’s very easy to use, but sometimes I have the feeling that is not punchy enough and the EQing is very much like a “smile”, way too much highs and lows and usually too much hi-hat. All of those are fixable, but it’s supposed to sound good “out of the box”.

I had better results with the old free demo of DrumCore, much punchier, more clear and somehow cleaner.

I was listening to “City Lights Taged” and I can see several problems. There is quite a lot of lows and to my ears those are clashing a bit, there is not enough space for both kick and the sub bass. Also, some instruments are quantized to straight rhythm (synth strings, synth,bass) while other instruments are quantized to a shuffle feel or “drunken feel” (piano, organ, claps).
The strings (the ostinato ones) tone is horrible and the piano chords are a bit to much in the left hand. Should play more like ocatves in the lows and the chords on the right hand.
Also, there is just one chord progression on all track, that’s a bit boring if nothing adds to it.
