That’s really funny – I had exactly the same experience with my daughter .
The watermark must be infectious. Whenever I point anybody at work to my AJ profile, they’ll invariably come by a few hours later, repeating “AudioJungle… AudioJungle… AudioJungle…” softly. Score one for brand recognition!
Amazingly fast – see you at silver soon
I’m an engineer as well, but I’m also in a band – actually I believe that the majority of us are engineers of some sort . It’s not too creative because about 95% of the songs we play are covers, but we do keep the dance floor a lot more active than the 95% original band I used to play with long long ago.
Almost all of any music money I make is from stock sales – my day job and family commitments don’t allow for much outside the stock passive income and a few hours per week in the studio (and of course posting on AJ forums when I should be working).
I do a bit of freelance every now and then but generally discourage it because I don’t have the bandwidth.
I’m also in a band, but since most the members have similar time constraints we try to play out no more than once a month (which is pushing it). Our individual takes are similar to yours, JC – about $100 apiece when we play out. (Shameless plug for any Portlanders out there – we’ll be at the Dublin Pub February 18th from 7-10, or later if they didn’t book a band after us :)).
I’d love to get into renting out a studio someday, and am stocking up as much as possible on good recording gear. Doing the stock scene over the past couple of years has been an amazing way of improving my songwriting, performance, and music production know how, but has also made me realize I’ve got a long way to go before I’ll feel comfortable recording other people (also my studio space is currently less than optimal).
Over time I hope to ramp down on the day job and ramp up on a modest music career. But I’ve got a mortgage and my daughter’s college education to pay for first .
Thanks so much for the answer on the PhotoDune license – it’s good to know that the same license will cover multiple tracks. It will be a while before I have 250,000 tracks on AJ, but you never know.
The devs and the rest of the Envato staff are doing great work – it’s much appreciated!
I don’t think things have changed…
It may depend on timing – when exactly did you make the withdrawal today? It’s been February in Australia for nearly 8 hours.
Thanks – I appreciate that!
As far as the image sizing goes, I meant would there be any license violation problems with altering an image purchased from PhotoDune if it were a simple crop. I’m guessing this is okay, but just wanted to cover my assets, as it were…
Thanks for the update, Carmen! That’s a pretty cool feature.
Assuming I’m not too lazy to go about doing this , I would love to support our PhotoDune colleagues when looking for images for my tunes. I’ve looked a bit through the license stuff, but just to double check:
1. If I buy an image with a regular license, I assume I would be limited to using it for a single song? Or could I use it for multiple tracks on AudioJungle?
2. Are there any limitations to adjusting the image, most obviously to crop it to 80×80?
That is a good article! Actually the whole site has a lot of good information, especially for newbies – I’ve learned a lot from Tweak over the past couple of years
