It looks good. My guess is it’s just not offering anything different to many other similar flyers. Sometimes they may reject things that are already a saturated market, unless they are exceptional in some way. That’s the best reason I can come up with for it being rejected. I don’t suppose the rejection email said anything much?

Too many new music creating robots are being manufactured every day.

Looks quite nice. I’m not crazy about the shape that has “landscaping” in it. It would at least look better if it was centred with the mountains shape.

The violin sound is letting it down a bit for me, it’s not very realistic sounding. Otherwise sounds pretty good, although might need a bit of mixing.
Hi Martin, Thank you so much for your feedback. I used Vienna instruments solo violin which is supposed to be one of the best libraries. I’m wondering what makes it sound unrealistic. Any details would be appreciated. Also any details on how to improve the mix would be great. I took a look at some of your tracks and they really sound well mixed. Thanks. John

Thanks John. I’m not at all an expert on mixing, I just do my best to get something that sounds good to my ears. About the violin, I would guess that it’s just a bit of a hard instrument to get realistic no matter how good the vst is.

So let’s just say a video that went viral illegally used my music, and I just joined up. Will Adrev only get the money from that video “from that point on”, or will it somehow account for all of the views that the video has received?

Just from that point on, I’m afraid.

But my worry here is the impact on the many thousands of younger buyers that don’t understand this ‘new’ concept. Personally, they’re my biggest customer base (as I’m sure they are for many others here) and I’m trying to figure out a way to communicate this to them, without scaring them off!

I’m quite surprised that most of your buyers are so young. Is this a result of lots of young people becoming successful at making money with their youtube channel?

There are always some months they are somehow slow … but still there are some things that may affect the sales – now and for the future as well.

The VAT thing – i can really imagine that for some of the individual buyers – i mean some young guys – could be the +VAT a dealbreaker and they will look for some cheaper (or free) option somewhere else …

Along with the VAT comes another thing i noticed – a huge number of new authors. What has it to do with the VAT? When the MOSS started in 2015 i noticed that many of the small marketplaces and individual eshops just closed the gates … not only in the music industry but also in world of mobile apps, templates, small games development studios etc. This people are moving portfolios from a personal stores to some bigger ones like Envato.

But i could be wrong of course and i hope things will be better again :)
VAT isn’t affecting my sales on other sites.

Do the other sites even charge the VAT to buyers??
