I believe you need to remove the “br /” after your “p” sections as they are causing an extra line break. The end paragraph adds one for you already.
In a nutshell, you don’t. Instead, they select them and contact you for your approval.
To get placed in a VH project you just create great music. The VH authors constantly keep tabs on new music. What they dislike is being harangued by AJ authors, so I’d advise not to contact them as they see it as spam and will probably blacklist you.
Congrats Gareth! (again) Sorry, I hijacked Martijn’s thread a few days ago when I noticed your moniker – A new thread would have been more appropriate).
Yes, the proof is in the pudding Martijn! I also take ages to finish a track. I’m constantly tweaking, and leave tracks to marinate and come back to see what needs modifying. Rinse and repeat. My latest upload had been cooking for months. I left it for a couple of months though, and only came back to it recently. I have way too many “unfinished” tracks clogging up my HD that I really need to address and start uploading…
This has been my best month on AJ in18 months but I mainly put that down to me uploading several tracks recently. Whatever the reason, I’m happy. Only a few more sales to reach 200
Ah yes, sorry, items. My bad. I’m not familiar with the rules for source files. Technically I don’t see an issue providing your own source audio but, as you mention, it could open up issues with people providing third party samples. I had a quick look around the submission guidelines and couldn’t find anything about this.
You can include up to 5 songs per item (the main track and 4 variations). These could be for, say, the song minus the lead instruments, drums and percussion only, etc… so it’s really up to you how fine grain you want to go. Some sample libraries’ license agreement do not allow you to use their sounds in isolation – be it one-shot or a complex melody, so you should check into that if you are using those. Obviously, not an issue if you are using you own custom sounds *)
Congrats! Your next 100 is a stone throw away.
I see Gareth is sporting his new Reviewer tag Congrats!
