This might be cheap and cheerful, but it could be just the job – http://www.homestudiocorner.com/my-15-ikea-rack/

Seems easy enough, but only 6u :(. I’ve also been looking at cheap Wal-Mart bookcases ($15-20) – you get a lot of wood and with a few cuts with a circular saw it looks like you could easily build your own unit out of it, and it comes pre-laminated/painted. Otherwise I could get a couple 1’ X 8’ mdf sheets from the hardware store for about $10 bucks each. Either way, I think I can probably build a nice tall rolling rack unit for around $45-50, which is a hell of a better than paying $180 for a similar unit from Sweetwater or Musicians friend. I just don’t understand how they get away with charging so much for what is essentially some laminated particle board with a couple of metal rails screwed in! I mean look at this one. What a rip! melamine covered particle board and some rails and casters for $193? People sure do like screwing over audio guys. :)

Hey guys, let’s talk carpentry! My current rack unit is too small to hold all my gear and I’m thinking about getting some MDF+rack rails and making my own rack unit because all the prefab audio racks around the internet in the size I want (maybe around 20u) seem rather expensive for some wood and metal…and you have to assemble most of them anyway! Maybe throw some casters on there? Whose built a rack? What’s your experience price wise when it came to materials? I’m not the best carpenter, but I’ve managed to make book shelves and things like that.

Conversely, does anyone know a place that sells reasonably priced equipment racks?

Also, feel free to post pictures of your equipment rack for fun to show off what you built and/or all your cool gear (hey, why not?)

But Youtube does pretty good job :)
Nice channel! But it’s scary to read the comments… It seems like every obnoxious d-bag on YouTube expects RF music to be completely free.

Yep, that’s been partly my experience. Is this free? Can I use this in my project? Just look in the description! But youtube DOES drive sales/referrals, guaranteed…

Facebook on the other hand? I don’t think so. I think the whole problem with Facebook/social media is that people don’t really use it to shop. Maybe it works okay if you have a brand or company and people like your page, but stock music? I have my doubts, but it couldn’t hurt.

I’m not familiar with how Steam works. But I find it weird that your buyer won’t be able to keep track of how many time the game is downloaded.
I think the buyer probably meant he has no idea how many copies he will potentially sell.

Hello guys,

sorry I have a question. I thought that any license here is just for 1 year, so do the buyer has to buy it every year again?

greets
They do not expire after a certain length of time, they are just restricted to number of copies/downloads. Standard license covers 10,000 copies/downloads. Mass Production license covers unlimited copies or downloads

Tim’s profile appears to be 99% custom images. You would create a bunch of custom images and host them somewhere (ie photobucket). All that nice looking text is PNG files with transparent backgrounds. HTML code is actually quite simple, you display an image like this:

<img src="http://www.someimagehost.com/someuser/image.png" />

and you can wrap your images inside links like this:

<a href="http://audiojungle.net/collections/mycollectionurl"><img src="http://www.someimagehost.com/someuser/image.png" /></a>

You can set new lines with the <br /> tag.

Go ahead and right-click save image as on one of his paragraphs and you will see that it is an image.

You’ll want to make sure your images are the proper width.

That’s about all there is too it, there is no fancy HTML beyond that, it just looks good because he took the time to build a nice layout with images. No div tags or anything like that I can see…

Reamping is useful, analog compressor…meh. I usually throw my $$$ away on pres/mics, so I’d lean towards picking up the RNP or the ART PRO.

To my ears the only analog gear that truly sounds markedly better than dsp is tube saturation on a guitar amp, but even then you need the right kind of mic, placement, ect.

It would be nice for us to have a chat window on a side here, so we could spam one another without spamming the forum :D I think it would have been a neat feature :)

Does anyone remember chatrooms? That was pretty much the internet before all this social media bullcrap.

AudioJungle should make a category called “Rejection Bin” where they put all the rejected tracks, surely you will find some new and original music there. :):):)

I think the only way to increase sales without uploading more tracks is the same old social media/youtube/soundcloud promotion game. I find having a youtube channel is especially good as far as redirecting people to AudioJungle, and then you get some of that sweet, sweet referral money as well.

Most of the libraries I have developed are MULTIPLE GIGS in size, which creates some challenges for Envato as far as uploading/storage/ect go. I’d imagine storage/bandwidth is probably the main issue why something like this already doesn’t exist. I also see a problem with Envato’s current category platform. Is your plugin AU, VST, RTAS/AAX, or Kontakt only? All of these? How would you place an item across multiple categories? Setting prices is also somewhat of an issue, as most developers probably already have their prices figured out and it would be weird to let Envato arbitrarily set a price. Still, I’d likely be interested in seeing how some of my libraries would do here, but 33% commission rate makes me cringe.
