+1, Yes Tim, this would be very very helpful.
But I would go even further: It would be very helpful to have stats, not just how many times it was played, but also how long.
This would tell us even more accurate why people didn’t buy it I guess.

Congrats Adi!
Well, I’m not surprised: Top quality = top author :)

I wonder how effective a technical solution can even be. If someone wanted to change a song slightly (change the key, mix up the chords a little here or there, change the melody a little, etc.) I doubt any technical solution could detect that. or maybe I am wrong and this is possible to detect?
Soundizer can even detect if it’s been uploaded over the same CPU ;)

2496th across all marketplaces :O

To me this sounds much better: You’re ranked 157th for sales on AudioJungle :D

they should have told you, yes it needs more work on those claps and kick needs to be a bit tighter in places.
Really? Do we need reviewers to spend time to point such things? We have now over 8 days to pass the review queue. I’m new here and I dont want to be rude, but i would not even think to upload that tune to review.

That’s nice. Here is something for your amuzement:

The only thing I know about this: You can do this within Cubase with the included Midi PlugIn “Chorder”, but I never tried it yet.

I am very very sorry everybody.
There isn’t a person here that doesn’t respect your ability to admit a mistake. Well done.

Indeed! I wish you all the best Jaap and I hope your difficult situation clears up very soon!

I wonder if this is a problem that SOUNDIZER can help us with somehow? Or eventually. Like it can detect the same item used elsewhere by exclusive authors and then warn the appropriate people. I agree, it is such a huge undertaking by anyone (or any company) that it would have to be automated in some way.

Thank you Phill for pointing me on that topic. Indeed soundizer.com is the tool that would be able to gather tracks from other marketplaces into its database. It is also possible to detect whether a particular exclusive track is selling on other marketplaces using fingerprints technology. So if the “exclusivity cheating” is detected soundizer would notify Envato staff about that. I’m sure this could be fully automated with soundizer engine.

However big efforts need to be done so I would need to understand is Envato really interested in that automated “exclusivity cheating” monitoring?

yessss, that’s our man! I already thought by myself: Nobody could do this better than our great Soundizer!
I really hope Envato will hire you for this.

But sometimes It seems like some authors would have the Ghost of queue breathing down their neck even closer :D

This is not good and fair at all, when people commit as exclusive and sell it somewhere else!
But I’m afraid it’s hard for Envato to find the black sheep themselves… that would be an enormous work!
Me myself I have both, an exclusive and a non exclusive account.
Like this I can sell my some “non exclusive” tracks on other marketplaces too, but I concentrate very much on the exclusive songs, since the sell pretty well here, so my portfolio on non ex is not very large.
