Hi Matt :) I can see 190 sales at top-seller of the week. Doesn`t it mean that sales at AJ are better than in the past?
cough..(engineered sales)...cough…
Conspiracy, right? :)

No magic, no conspiracy. :)

There’s always a track at the top with a considerable distance in sales to the next. You won’t worry if it’s your track one day. So, don’t panic, don’t get paranoid. :D

Don’t worry, I meant it as a joke, but British sarcasm is a toughie to get across sometimes :) I’m sure those 190 sales are genuine, wish it was me of course!

Let’s see if this week is as appalling as last week! Not looking bright this month, really hope it’s a glitch in the system.

Want. So very much.

Lovely set up Luca, I’ll have to plan a path like you to get something like that, as currently, I’m a long way off! :)

Depressing sales for a usually good earning site. Hope it doesn’t last.

Yeah, things have been particularly poor lately haven’t they? Had a 30% drop in earnings last month here and this month has been very slow so far. Got to be Google’s mobile-favouring algorithm kicking in or something…

Great answers everyone, thank you for the links! I’ve just realised I have Bamblong from when it was made by Tonehammer, so I’ll have to dig that out and give it a go.

I’m definitely going to get the Spitfire Frank Ricotti Marimba as well though, sounds like it will fit in really nicely into a mix. Sonic Couture are great as well (can one have too many marimbas???)

...it is a strong argument for adrev though – i know in past threads i was not a supporter, but i think it illustrates the need for using a system like that to help protect your rf work.
Come over to the dark side, it’s warm and sunny here (well, maybe not sunny).
Already there.

High five!

Hi people of the AudioJunglists massive,

I’m looking for a decent clean sounding marimba / xylophone sound for documentary I’m scoring, something like this:

https://clyp.it/tdcbuykc

Can anyone point me in the correct direction? I have EWQLSO Gold, GPO (shocking) and some of the VSL examples via some Kontakt libraries that seem to be good, but wondering if there are some ‘go to’ marimbas for filmic / documentary-style projects?

Cheers big ears,

Taco

The big problem is of course that all the big RF sites use Adwords themselves, and they have more money than you. Therefore, they will outbid you on the relevant keywords or you will spend way too much money.

That’s true, although going niche is the only way to get good results with ads isn’t it? What I mean to say is that going for ‘royalty free music’ will be fruitless because of the high competition whereas something like ‘east ugandan bluegrass background music’ would attract a very specific type of customer (granted, maybe it’s not the one you’re hoping for!).


I’m hesitant to state my opinions here because I noticed a very distinct relationship between me speaking my mind here on AJ and my sales falling by more than 50% in one day and continuing ever since.

Dry like a cat’s eye since I started this thread, maybe I was a bit too hasty saying that was just conspiracy talk eh Paul! Ha ha!
