I can see you’re already inundated with suggestions, but here’s a few I think might fit your needs. They’re more electronic than soundroll’s track, but they have the energy I think you’re looking for:

Good luck with your project!
Have a look through these: http://audiojungle.net/user/tacoMusic/bookmarks
Or my best sellers: http://audiojungle.net/collections/1803649-bestsellers
And of course my logo track here: http://videohive.net/item/the-most-epic-digital-distortion/3790502
And let me know if anything catches your eye.
I agree more with LIam. This site is for more small companies and projects, they look for fast and cheap way to get music for their projects, that’s why they buy from here.
I know another places and sites ask their buyers to fill forms, but there are another category of buyers.
Really soundroll? If you were earning less from this site, I think you might feel differently. I still don’t see how anyone loses out from this – including the smaller businesses. If it’s going on TV, cinema or elsewhere where a broadcaster pays royalties like radio, then there is NO impact to the customer. It sounds like most people wouldn’t even need to fill in a cue sheet if they’re using it on a YT video – do you need to fill out a cue sheet for YouTube usage?
Tim – sorry mate, we’ve totally hijacked your thread. I’ll leave my comments at that and hopefully we can focus on the original post topic.
this site is royalty free stock audio, keep it as simple as possible for buyers and don’t confuse them with licensing and cue sheets because you won’t make any money from royalties anyway so there is no point.
I disagree, and you should too if you’re trying to make a living out of music as a composer as this is, and has been for a while, an important source of income for composers – especially when you’re making the small amounts you do on RF sites.
Making the life of someone who fills out a cue sheet (probably regularly if they’re a business who frequently licenses tracks) easier can be made easier by the library, like automatic filling-in or the like.
And yes, it’s not possible to register tracks here that are PRO registered, but that’s the point, it’s something that should be changed according to a lot of composers (including myself) here. All this is said with respect Liam, just to make that clear.
Liam – people who buy these tracks don’t pay the royalties, it’s the broadcasters. There are plenty of ‘royalty free’ (as in pay for the licence once, use the track in your production forever) libraries that exist that let you collect royalties from your PRO. If it’s communicated well by Envato, there’s no reason it would put off customers.
MuscoSound – you beat me to it!
+1 and a massive bump. In fact, a shrieking, banshee-like tribal bump that is so powerful and epic that it will hopefully get someone to update AJ’s policy on this oh so important topic.
I agree with Sky and think there are numerous benefits to doing so that outweigh not doing so:
- After a while, you will have learned what does and does not work. Most likely, your earlier attempts won’t be up to the standard you’re writing now
- As Sky mentioned, first impressions DO last. I want my customers to see the tracks that sell well first, not a bunch of 0 sales
- Trimming tracks distils your portfolio down to your best work and helps clients find your strongest, or most commercial, work quicker.
- A track that track sells well already is more attractive to collaborators such as VideoHive Authours as it has already shown potential in the marketplace
- Like any marketplace, products that don’t sell are removed after a while and that looks more professional in my opinion, especially if new material is being uploaded
- Customers can always buy directly from you if they want it after you’ve removed it (meta-tag up those mp3s folks)
- You’ll make more friends, be more beautiful and popular
I’ll be trimming some of my tracks soon as I feel I’m tuning into the market needs more.
I had a different experience and it helped my sales quite a bit being featured, but in general it does seem like the featured file spot has more advantages in terms of exposure. Featured files are also higher up the page, which ticks the box for the ‘above the fold’ concept, although I don’t think that applies as strictly for websites as it does for newspapers.
What happens in a situation like this? Do those 24 sales get refunded as it’s totally illegal to use them? Guess this is just the way the industry works, but it’s sad there are pirates like that who so blatantly do it. I wonder how many of our own tracks are downloaded and resold elsewhere without us knowing?
The rates are determined by the volume of sales. After you pass $3,750 you get 51%, so you won’t start with 50%. But are you really going to upload all your tracks to other sites with all the tagging, describing, attaching etc. just to delete them a few month later?
Art – are you referring to setting up an entirely new account, or just ‘switching’ your account to non-exclusive and then going back to exclusive? My understanding from your post is that it’s based on the amount of money you’ve made, so if you’ve past the thresholds for earning a higher percentage, then presumably you can go non-exclusive, then exclusive again later and start on something like 51% (or higher).
