Thanks for the suggestions.

I think Impact Designer looks really interesting. Most of what I see, however, is stuff where you are just getting another sound designer’s sound. I guess I’m looking more for programs where you can take your own recorded samples, or a combination of synthesizers and effects, and make your own custom sounds. Basically, I want to create what those sound designers are selling in your links. I’m not sure if it’s okay to take what they have made, then make my own sound effects and sell them as individual sound effects. Or am I wrong? Certainly you can use them in your music, but is it okay to make custom sound effects from another person’s custom sounds and sell them as your own?

I really appreciate the posts, thanks!

Camel Audio Alchemy allows you to import your own sounds. It is an amazingly powerful synth.

I don’t understand why every brass library doesn’t doesn’t record the horns individually

Take a look at this.

But what if somebody is looking for something out of ordinary, for example if they need an elaborate solo? Not all music here is bought to be used in 15sec commercials, I suppose there are customers who look for something that may pass as a proper song or piece of music. But it is good to have a better view of what it is you want and what not. Thank you for this article, it will make some things easier.

You can always add a variation in your ZIP file, e.g. ’’AwesomeMusic – Main Version” and then “AwesomeMusic – Main Version With Elaborate Incredible Virtuosic Solo” :D

Often it’s case of – just record the track as you like it, and then go through it and if there’s anything that really stands out and diminishes the use for background music, use the ‘mute’ button. That’s your alternate mix :)

Interesting seeing this topic brought back to life. I was not a reviewer back when I wrote all of that!.

Anyhow, Josh uploaded tracks long after he made the announcement (his most recent approved track is from February of this year), so I’m sure he still comes back and checks the place out from time to time.He may also be offering his own music in his portfolio here – for free elsewhere as a non-exclusive author.

If he is still around on the forums, I suspect many here would be interested to see the results of his decision.

While the classical guitar version might also be repetitive, it would depend on how the classical guitar part that you upload is performed (live guitar vs. sampled, good performance, phrasing, etc..). How well it is recorded, mixed, etc…

Repetition can be fine if you can add certain nuances to the performance that make it interesting, commercially, which is one of the issues with your original electronic version of the track. Yes, it’s based on the original Alhambra, but your version of the tune becomes categorically monotonous. The issue is not the composition of the original (there are wonderful performances of the track all over Youtube), but how you put together your arrangement of it, and how well that can be applied to support general video imagery in a balanced way.

If you uploaded a guitar version we would judge it on its own merits.

For the sake of clarity, each track is judged on an individual basis pertaining to their composition / production quality, and general commercial utility for the Audiojungle library. These judgements are based on current review policies and standards. Comparisons with tracks approved years ago, are not relevant now

It’s important to remember that Audiojungle acceptance standards are continually evolving, as they have done in the last couple of years, and will do so in future. Past tracks which fail to reach these standards may be looked at again and possibly removed from the library in the future, as part of a library management initiative we are currently envisaging.
