I quite like the song, can see it being used in a commercial application, the only thing I would suggest is using side chain compression to dip the bass every time the kick drum hits rather than an off beat bass line. Would sound more authentic.

So this issue has been on the cards for me for a while. I’m very angry about my latest hard rejection. Here is a track that I spent a week on that has been hard rejected outright. I composed what I thought was a memorable, emotionally powerful theme and spent several days working on the arrangement….the track has been hard rejected purely on the quality of my samples again. So basically, it all boils down to sample quality now does it? Unless we have the latest sample libraries then we might as well not bother even uploading? We are expected to have the best, most expensive kits and the most expensive libraries and work our butts off for several days but AJ still remains the cheapest Audio Library around and without a Broadcast License? A Library that allows items to be sold and broadcast nationally for just $17? That’s OK. We will sell your music cheap but you still have to have the most professional sounding and expensive samples around. Don’t even try to upload anything less than that, but we will still sell it cheaply, potentially to multi national corporations and tv stations. I think AJ really need to re-address some of their policies and very soon. I for one won’t be uploading any more tracks here for a while until I cool down. I’ll upload this track and any future tracks to another stock library. I guess this day had to come for me and possibly other authors too. AJ has continued to raise the bar of the quality of its music, which is a good thing, but if you read between the lines that also means raising the quality of samples too. Unfortunately, this bar has been raised without increasing the reward (i.e. the prices) too. For those authors, like myself, who either can’t afford to, or are not willing to spend hundreds/thousands on the latest computer and most expensive libraries, then I guess that’s the kiss of death. Yes, the music should be great, yes the music should sound good, but also, if you want that quality then yes the prices and the uses of our music (i.e. on national tv) should reflect those expected standards too.

Here is the hard rejected thread.

Couldn’t have put it better myself. It’s becoming a joke.

I really don’t think that the overall sound quality matters all that much, as long as its not terrible, if it’s reasonable then it will work, I had a tv company in USA use one of my REALLY old songs in a reality tv show and it was literally the worst recording ever, I forgot all about the song and when I listened it back it was so embarrassing, but the overall mood of the track must have worked perfectly. I think as long as its not got hiss on the track and it sounds reasonable then it’s ok, it’s the overall feel of the song that should matter most – especially on a stock audio site like this.

Can hear this working on a tv ad, yeah I agree about the trumpet instrument but other than that sounds fine to me.

I don’t know, sometimes video makers want rough sounding piano tracks, makes it sound more real, they can play them over the top of someone pretending to play piano and it works, if it was completely polished it wouldn’t sound as real

I wouldn’t class myself as a high seller here at Audiojungle but I got offered to compose music for a national tv ad over in Hong Kong last year, they heard one of my songs on Audiojungle and sent me a direct message from my profile saying they would like something similar to it that they can exclusively own. So Audiojungle can be a good platform to get your music heard by the right people.
