Just amazing. Don’t know if the new layout is already influencing buyers’ behavior, but I had a huge sales peak in the last 12 hours.

If your reverb has a stereo input/output, you send the instrument by a stereo bus and you’re searching for a realistic response just leave it full left and full right (or stereo, centre balanced) otherwise experiment and have fun :D

Eq is a good friend, taming the rumble or reducing/boosting room presence.

Also compression can be used; for instance, for aggressive drum tracks, room mics are heavily compressed, narrowed in the stereo field and added to the mix.

Also experiment with mono reverbs, as they can help sometimes some instruments to “cut through” the mix.

Hello Pietro! I suspect the start. The synth introduces a mood that does not fit to the mood that you develop later in the track. I’d say the problem is the second synth chord. The track itself is superb :-)
Thanks for your feedback! It was concieved as a crescendo (that’s the reason of the second part, more aggressive) but you may be right…

Thanks everybody! And cheers to Joonique and Filosound, sometimes it’s good to be in the right place at the right time ;)

All the best, Pietro

Hi there,
I was quite satisfied with this one, but it ain’t selling at all…
It was approved without any issue, but there might be something to refine (maybe in the low end?)
Check it out:
Travelling to Infinity
All the best,
Pietro

Hi guys,
I’ve reached the 100 sales milestone!
It took me quite a long time, mostly because I’m uploading at a very slow rate (1 track every month, more or less) but given my small portfolio I’m pretty happy of this result…

Let’s celebrate together with a little giveaway: I’ll buy 1 (one) track to the first 2 (two) authors that will reply to this post, and rate them 5 stars – sorry, I know it’s not that much but… I’m not that wealthy! ;)
All the best,
Pietro

Just to make sure, these are all plugins I can just install/drop-into with most DAW right? They aren’t their own DAW?
These are all libraries that run inside Kontakt .In some cases (Eastwest products, for instance) they have their own free kontakt player that comes with the library; in some other cases (Stilus RMX) they run through their own virtual instruments.
In all cases, they run inside your DAW. As others said before, think exactly what are your needs for the kind of music you do, and then audition as many demos as possible. This is the only way to make a wise decision! ;-)

4+ days
Thinking of 5 days I did the math: submitted wedesneday to be released on monday… got reviewed on sunday (ouch!) :-(
I wouldn’t worry. Sunday afternoon/evening has been good to me in the past.
Nah, didn’t work for me, a big fat 0 in sales… I was quite happy with my last track, very sad it got lost so early :crying:
