Really pleased quality control seems to be improving. Might help stem the massive flow of new tracks, which just causes what does get accepted to be lost in among everything else.
I dont say its bad or good – but NOW there is 4000+ new tracks per month – thats really a big number and if a new author come here with AAA+ quality and see that one other author with A quality have the same sales just because he can produce 10 tracks/week … this is not good at all ! – demotivating and frustrating
+1. The chance of getting your track listed on the front page for any length of time, or being found in a search, with such a flow of new tracks is quite low.
I’ll probably think again before writing any more tracks for the Jungle. Even when you work really hard to get a track sounding great, you’ll know in the back of your mind that it’ll likely just get lost in the general marketplace noise.
Nice work, Pinkzebra!
Great move. Many thanks, Envato.
Interesting info, Jimmy – thank you for sharing.
Unfortunately, to the uninitiated listener auditioning tracks, loud is often perceived as better, just as bright is often perceived as better in vocal microphones (until you actually start trying to mix the track).
I agree, filmTones. Although my best selling track is actually one I made before I joined the loudness war
This is why some like Allegro120 have suggested the broadcast license, which is a good solution, but Envato historically moves very slowly when it comes to making financial decisions.
Here’s hoping they can come up with something like that. It’s an unsatisfactory situation to have performance royalties potentially waiting in the PROs and not being able to claim it.
For the record, none of my tracks here are registered with my local PRO and I’ve no idea whether they’ve been on TV. For me this is more of an issue of principle.
