It sucks, on my computer everything is pushed to the “left.” this happens across multiple browsers. I guess my resolution is too high to use youtube. Does it look this way to anyone else? There’s a big white empty space on the right. At first I thought it was a problem with my browser. Center it youtube.

http://audiojungle.net/item/keehi-lagoon/2578746 Seriously, that one.
Yeah I remember that one.

My personal favorite track with nary a single sale: http://audiojungle.net/item/ominous-intro/3267247 I was so proud of this one: an interesting time signature (5/4), some thoughtful choices in harmony, and, most importantly, some of the most realistic sounds I’ve produced with a VST. Alas, I thnk the market for this kind of track is pretty small, so not much traction.
Sucks you haven’t sold it man, it is indeed ominous, and I would agree that it sounds quite realistic.

I always liked this track. http://audiojungle.net/item/proud-billy/2775246

Sometimes you gotta wonder how much comes down to your track and how much comes down to something as simple as Meta Data?

I think highly compressed music is more or less the standard these days. Certain types of music…I don’t think there’s much of an upper limit when it comes to compression. Obviously it can’t sound like daggers, but if the wave form of your song looks like a sausage…it’s what’s to be expected. Other types of music, orchestral music specifically…compression tends to make it sound less realistic, IMO, but will still makes it sound more “desirable” to the average buyer. I think every track should be uniquely mastered, as every track is different. If we were talking about producing an Album, there should be some coherence, but I think the goal here should be to try to make every track sound the best it can. I prefer to compress individual tracks than an over-all mix (it gives me flexibility) and I really prefer equalization over compression. Usually I will use a pretty low compression ratio, otherwise it starts to sound like someone is punching you in the ear. Sometimes I’ll use high and low-pass filters, but I think the most important tool with mixing and mastering is EQ.

Ah, so you re-submit it. Does it take a week or did they script is so that it’s quick or automatic? I’ve never edited anything, but I imagine there’s a separate queue for edits?

Stupid question, but how do you easily change the thumbnails for songs…do you have to re-submit them? I notice there is an option to delete the thumbnail, but not to change it?

For the snare, don’t drown it in reverb, put a gate after reverb or load a gated reverb setting if you have one,
The Ol’ PHIL COLLINS SNARE ?

Mat’s got a killer set-up, look at all the controllers! I re-post these from the other thread. My space is a mess compared to you guys.

It SOUNDS ok to me, but I think MCDenny is right the beat is a little repetitive, especially the repetition of the snare. Repetition isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but I would either cut the length of the track in half or add more variation… it doesn’t have to be much. Maybe a crash-type sound or something similar every now and then to break it up. But the reviewers will usually tell you if your track is too repetitive in their review, so who knows.
