Hehe, it’s been over a month since this thread was posted and the op hasn’t posted anything since. I think it’s safe to assume they’ve found what they’re looking for.
Please guys, read his posts. He said he wants a CUSTOM track for the video that you later on upload to AudioJungle to benefit from cross promotion.
As most already said, dynamics is the key. A good room to place all string and related sounds in as well (reverb). Although, a bad string sample can be hard to rescue. The Kontakt library comes with a small selection VSL-strings. Wich sounds ok, but that’s just about it. You also need to consider different playing techniques, switch between samples for different sections of the melody.
Layering is important. Using different instrumentation. Cellos, violas, violins and so forth.
Then again, it all depends on what you’re trying to achieve. How complex the string parts are.
Can’t really say. But the buyer to rating ratio is low. I have a track that has sold 169 times and only have 30 ratings. Roughly 1 out of 5 people rated it. Don’t worry, I’m sure it will get rated enough if you keep selling.
Personally I wish the ratings would go away all together.
Just want to chime in as an AudioJungle author. The ratings make no sense for us. The buyer can always hear exactly what he’s going to buy. Sometimes we still get a low rating. Why would anyone buy something they don’t like and then rate it low? I don’t see the benefit of a rating system for AudioJungle since you can always check the product in full before buying.
Just a few words from me.
Revturkey, Ice Station has a nice theme to it. Like it.
Well, I only have 2 tracks in my portfolio, hehe, and to be honest, I really do think my latest one is great. It’s upbeat, happy and got a nice swing to it. It was fun laying down a melody that would work both for the violin and the bells.http://audiojungle.net/item/happy-and-successful/4425701
Yes, a company could buy a song here and use it in their trailer with a regular license. For broadcasting, movies and tv, an extended license is needed. But yes, it’s a low fare and I think most authors would like to see a change in the licensing regarding broadcasting and such.
Most stock music publishers don’t like microstock sites since the microstock sites too some extent compete with them. Consider when they are trying to license out a song (with PRO) to companies at a much higher cost and the company says, “but we can get a similar song on AJ for almost nothing, why shouldn’t we use that?”.
