I can just repeat myself. I hope that everyone is a fair player here but Audiojungle is a very big market place. So I just hope that Envato sorts out black sheeps The topic really was if AJ gets too flooded and that is really hard to answer. For customers it`s very nice to have a large selection of cues to choose from, and for composers it`s of course better that their tracks will be perceived more.
Maybe I opened Pandora`s box to write about unspoken secrets That was really not my intention. Of course no one is so stupid to do such things with his “own” account I really hope that everyone is a fair player here !
Let me rephrase, because I don`t want to blame anyone here, but I suspect it is a common method of self promotion and not unlawful Not all things that we see are as they are. (Einstein)
Hi everyone, I agree with BrownHouseMedia here. There`s no need to delete files. That brings me to Sonicbyte. He is so right. AJ gets flooded with new tracks every day and that buries real good songs of good composers. Last week I was author of the week and I had sales. Nice. Now I’m back in the hidden underground with almost no sales. Unless you don`t have a track every day on the front page, a track of the week or you are author of the week and you are listed under the Top25 of the top authors, you sadly don`t sell very much and that is very sad and disappointing. Some guys buy their own tracks just to appear in the popular files list. That is called self promotion then
Wish ya luck Waderman I was featured last week and it`s nice to be featured…
Thank you guys I appreciate that very much. Let`s hope the customers will check my music. And yes, I am a Satriani fan
ClassicBeauty saidYou gotta look a nice and friendly fella to increase your “congrats” count, so don’t forget to spice up your post with a little demagoguery, like “I’m so proud to be a part of this wonderful community, thank you dear buyers, bla bla bla…” The more schmaltz – the better.
Rejoice with me as I celebrate my projected distant future sales total!
I like your statements in todays threads at AJ….. And “schmaltz” is a great word
Hi folks, indeed it`s an interesting topic. In the pro or exclusive production music market it quite normal to produce a main track with variations, 30 sec and 15 sec versions and it`s nice for a cutter. Anyway, an experienced cutter will cut the track like he needs it. It`s maybe more smart to produce a main version with different options for the cutter to make something out of it. It`s simply not good to offer a whole package, with track edits, for 14 bugs. That really ruins even more the market prices but it`s my personal opinion.
Pinkzebra, I understand you very good and I know the production music bizz quite good, the exclusive market, the non-exclusive and the RF market. There are a billion of tracks out there and you can`t imagine how much of it sounds simular to another track. There are also tracks of the top sellers here that sound weirdly nearly quite simular to tracks of big major production houses and that charmes me a smile I am also not a fan of sound a likes or copying others work but sad but true it`s the daily bizz of stock/library music. Just yesterday I had a kind of “ok-oh-god” experience when I heard some real good produced trailer music with live orchestra that sounded very simular to another very good other trailer album; same orchestration, choir, sound, chord progression but different composers. I heard a third and fourth album and guess what, very simular songs….. I don`t think that people here purposely try to copy tracks. An experienced composer calls it “incorporating with inspiration” and a not expereinced composer easily creates a sound alike of another sound alike
