I uploaded 20 tracks on tunesat in trial mode. All “active” now.
Is it necessary to implement metadata? If yes, do I have to choose “audiojungle” for publisher? Does this help for the search routine?
What do you think guys: Maybe we should contact those guys to make a special offer for AJ authors, since it’s not the same value for us to know where what is played like for other people running after royalties. For us it’s more a funny and interesting thing to know it. We just want to ‘feed’ our curiosity and make us feel better, or not?
This would surely legitimate to pay a monthly fee, but not such an amount as the request…

Hey Mat, will tunesat find watermarked tracks or do you upload without watermark?
I just signed in for trial mode.
Which versions do you upload? Watermarked or not? Is it allowed to upload without watermark onto server like these at all?
UJ-pro saidHaha! I don’t think you’re wrong. While I may have all the great libraries, they still need to be mixed correctly to sound good. So you were right. The best sound in the world still needs proper arrangement and mixing. Agreed?
... I used Damage (percussion), Lumina (for the arpeggiator), Cinematic Guitars (for the lick) and I believe the strings are from Symphobia 2.
Sorry for my suggestion on 2.Maybe I wrote to myself. lol
Of course! Please allow me these suggestion: The piano on “The Homecoming” sounds a bit “plastic” (sorry, don’t know how you call it). And the whole mix has subjective much middle frequences.
I like “Happy Island” very much (with stock-music ears). “But” I expected a much more offensive melody line and sound. Maybe these are the little things which could change all. Maybe!
Thanks very much dysko!
We don’t worry if you can change every wrong notification into a real sale.
I really would like to help you, but that’s always a bit difficult in this matter.
I listened to a few tracks of you and read a few postings. The main things are already answered.
There are many things you need to work on hard. And there is a lot of stock music out there growing up more and more. And there’s a bunch of help already existing in the AJ Forum. Search for it. So please allow me to try to figure it out simple:
1. The quality of the music. Try to define what’s happening in good selling tracks. Not only the well known topseller. Choose the genre you’d like to compete in and scroll through the first pages sorted by date, than look which tracks are having early 3, 4, 5 sales. Try to define how these tracks are made. Mood, instruments, arrangement, mixing to get what the buyers are looking for… And try to listen what you here on TV commercials, sitcoms, games (TV, App, PC)...
2. Sounds! Try to invest in modern libraries, virtual synths depending on the kind of music you want to compose. There is so much nice stuff out there for a quite low price. It was never cheaper before.
3. Advertising (I know you already do it) Don’t stop it and do all you can do.
4. What ever happened or didn’t happen – be patient! It’s a really f** hard time. We all know it. Most of us came to the point of “does it make any sence”? I’m still fighting with these thoughts sometimes. But as often said here: It’s a marathon – not a sprint.
There are a few authors getting a quite nice income in just 1-2 years. These authors having a very good talent in composing, producing, advertisement and/or just know where and how to get the right help. And nobody knows how much buyers they already had before subscribing at AJ. Whatever – there will allways be mates being better, faster, more talented and maybe have a bit more luck. All this is no reason to not have any success one day.
My problem is to have only small time and low energy to work on it. But I won’t stop!
OK, many words. Sorry for my english.
I hope I could help a little bit and I wish you all the best, much energy to keep on and the needed patience.
I love your App. Thanks again.
The only (new) thing is, over the last hour I went mad. I got 5 times a notification. The first two times directly in a row. I was sure that these must be sales because I switched off the “New comments” notification. Unfortunately it has shown “New comments”. After opening the “comments” folder there not even was a new comment.
I had this issue one time before. How can this happen? Don’t like it. (still love your app)
Thanks for help.
... how on earth do you collaborate and how does the payment structure work? ...
Hey Mr. Western,
no problem. Collaboration between AJ-authors just means that the track was made by more than one author. Other authors have to take a serious part on this track. This can be adding other parts to the arrangement, recording additional stems or a solo part or vocals… Than you can call it a collaboration work.
Usually the person who starts the composition will be the one who will upload the collab track.
I hope I wrote it understandable.
I still owe Graham and Jamie my additional parts on a new collab track to be uploaded by them. One day…
