Definitely double check with support, but I’ve made the same mistake in the past and the answer was unfortunately that I’d have to just wait until next month. On the bright side, you’ll get an extra big payment in June.
Congratulations, Dmitry! You are the original AudioJungle god!
My first 60 or so tracks were all loops – I can’t remember why, but they were. I don’t see any evidence that loops sell any better or worse than tracks with an ending, at least in my portfolio.
That said, I’ve gotten more requests from buyers to tack on an ending chord to a loop than the other way around. Also, there have been one or two cases where a buyer gets the song but doesn’t understand that it’s supposed to loop, and therefore is upset by the abrupt ending. So I think that if you’re going to provide a loop it’s usually best to provide a version with an ending chord as well, or else make it very clear that the intent of the song is to loop.
On the flip side, if your song is short, like a minute or less, it’s probably a good idea to include a loopable version so that clients can stretch it out as far as they want.
At the very least, I’ve found that even if I intend to only deliver a loop, adding an ending chord when recording the song at least puts it there in your project, so that you’re only looking at a remix instead of trying to tack something on a year or two later at a client request. This isn’t so much of a concern with MIDI, but if you’re recording an acoustic guitar or something it’s a big PIA to have to go back in and try and match whatever mic/pre/placement you were using just for a final strum. Yes, it sounds stupid, but I’ve had to do this sort of thing for some of the first set of tracks I mentioned earlier.
Thought I’d pop back in to provide a couple of links to previous threads with more information/opinions:http://audiojungle.net/forums/thread/best-headphone-for-audio-production/77745?page=1 http://audiojungle.net/forums/thread/there-is-a-question-of-buying-headphones/59237?page=1 http://audiojungle.net/forums/thread/studio-headphones/36028?page=1
On a personal note, it’s amusing for me to read my posts as I work my way from a beat up pair of AKG 240s cans to eventually procuring HD280, DT880 and DT770 phones. And now I want the HD650s . G.A.S. is an evil thing.
Beyerdynamic DT770 PRO are very decent. For many years they are a studio standard. They are very plain and precise – in them you’ll hear everything.
Given the constraints in the original post, I definitely second that. The 770s are great headphones for the price, and also super comfortable.
As usual each author will promote his own city.
Come to Portland Oregon! It’s pretty cool here.
I second that!
Come to Seattle, WA
That would work too.
Somebody also mentioned Las Vegas. Maybe Envato could come to next year’s NAB show and host a meetup at the same time .
By necessity, I am creative between about 9:00pm and 10:15pm 3-5 days a week
The aforementioned glass of red wine helps a great deal. Though that could also be nice scotch, tequila, a porter, etc. – I’m very flexible that way.
mmniece saidYou haven’t missed the boat, in terms of AudioJungle and in terms of your music career you definitely haven’t. Thing is, it is a little harder to break through now, but not impossible. Some authors have done very well here over a very brief period, and a lot of it depends on what your current portfolio looks like.
As a brand spankin newbie I’ve wondered about this, if I missed the boat so to speak. However, I would think audiojungle is only a piece of the whole machine. There are things like YouTube, Facebook, and many other means of promotion, including non-web, that help get you and your music noticed. No press is bad press if your tunes are good right? In the end it’s about branding and marketing yourself/studio/music versus simply uploading and waiting for a check. Thoughts?
It definitely is harder to “break through” than it was when I started in late 2009, because if you define breaking through as, say, getting on the monthly top authors list, you need to be making well over 200 sales per month these days, whereas in 2009 you had to make something like 20 sales (or possibly fewer!). That said, there are a lot more authors making 20 sales or more per month now, even in their first month as the Top New Authors list shows, and with prices that have raised several dollars per track since 2009. 20 sales is still 20 sales, no matter what the top authors are doing at the time.
So yeah, there are definite advantages to having started a few years back, but IMO there’s huge opportunity for new authors as well. I don’t think that anyone who is joining now and is able to produce quality is going to be missing the boat. And I sure would have loved it if my first years worth of sales were at these prices/commission rates .
Yes indeed! Thanks Envato! This is definitely welcome news.
