I think maybe why it was rejected is that there is too little thread of melodic sense to draw the ear through; and too much misleading melodic starts that dead end.
I was watching a youtube clip and heard the audiojungle watermark in the track. Is there a way for the watermark auditioning MP3 to end up in the hands of a user. I suspect this is a stolen use. Not cool. Check it out.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lzg4duLzj2k
Anyone know who’s track this is? Comments?
Dionamar, Sorry I’m super late on this thread but your description of a Zimmer – ish Christmas theme really got my attention because that was the motiv I was shooting for with this track. Thus named “The Christmas Holiday” If it fits the bill.http://audiojungle.net/item/the-christmas-holiday/3291598
Ugh. Kinda makes one sick. A film studio can put a whole movie soundtrack complete with an asset library of sound effects together for cheaper than the take away lunch at the meeting. There needs to be a paradigm shift in how the extended license thing works before the top ten guys here get together with a couple web developers and take the market share from AJ.
Audiojungle is a creative substitute to procrastination and gaming and helps me learn my sample libraries. I do music full time in other capacities.
Solo piano sounds best with most of the transient left in. A manual ride on the fader makes the most sense, then, hit it with your color compressor -3db early, slow and and transparent.
I own and run mastering service. Contact me via email and I’ll help you out and send you my client list and some details about the next step. I’m inexpensive to get your stuff to the next level. Check out John Bryant “What Takes You”, a finessed record I did this year which garnered the Itunes song of the week in the folk genre: http://www.amazon.com/What-Takes-You/dp/B0083NNBOS or The Silver Pages for something totally different: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/part-1-ep/id573688853 I’ve Mastered many Genres. Shoot me a line, would love to help!
I feel like the extended license needs a small tweak to really work. Tim stated it well, to see your work in a major budget film should make AJ staff quake. The power of the library market is the long tail model… but it has not yet been able to appraise the true value of the quality that arises from it. Why not price the extended licenses based on a questionnaire filter, with uses, reproduction numbers and budget filters. Or just a negotiation between AJ and the buyer. I would imagine most high end buyers want to do things right and do not need policing.
