Exactly. To be eligible you need to both have a full length track that is longer than 2 minutes and two shorter edits. A total of 3 versions of the same track. The edits can be to your choosing but often in library music 60 and 30 second edits are included. Probably why they mention those numbers. They don’t need to be on the dot. If they claim not having exact edits to fit those lengths as breaking the rules, I would be surprised.
And no, I don’t think your track with an 1:15 version would be ineligible. As long as you also have a main track that’s longer than 2 minutes and two shorter edits. I’d say that the suggested edits are estimates.
For example: Main song – 2:30 Edit one – 1:15 (the one you mentioned) Edit two – 0:45
But staff should chime in here.
Why on earth were California Sun hard rejected? It has a good commercial sound to it with all the right elements. The mix is a bit narrow and compact. Perhaps pushed a tad to hard? Maybe it’s because of the mastering? The low end could perhaps use a clean up, but nothing big.
Anyways, if it’s hard rejected, not much to do here. Take the tracks else where.
Upload a watermarked preview on SoundCloud or on your Dropbox (make the link public) and share it here.
10 days do seem a bit long. I’ve requested staff reply on this thread.
tedor2 saidWell, yes and no. Your account has the exclusive or non-exclusive status. It’s not set per track. But you can have two accounts, one exclusive and non-exclusive. I know staff has helped move items between the different accounts for some authors. You can also shift your exclusive account to a non-exclusive account later on if you want. There’s a 30 day wait time while doing so.
can I change a track from exclusive to non-exclusive later?thanks, K
