Been on this site for nearly 6 months now, some tracks selling very well, some sitting there with no attention. I was wondering if AJ has done a survey or something in the past to find out what sort of client visits AJ. Are we generally catering for the flash world?

I’m sure AJ wants a broad client base with film makers, commericals, web designers etc, but it would be handy to know what sort of person is usually buying our files.

Whichever one, I’d like to see how much my music is getting seen.

I’ve got a string quartet piece here : http://audiojungle.net/item/allegretto/18173 It starts off a little dark, but from about 1/3 in it has the jolly string sound you may be after. I’ll happily edit the timings for you.

Or, for something quite different, some cheesy calypso music for an elevator: http://audiojungle.net/item/latin-cafe/26238

Mine is Jazz Cafe with 18 sales. No idea why it’s doing so well – the second most popular has 6 sales!

I’m not sure if I’d like to release my tracks under a reselling license – someone could buy it for another stock site and take away all my revenue. Revostock do 3 license types, which I quite like:

1. Corporate, Non-Profit, Trade Shows, Web*, Not-For-Broadcast Re-Production to 5,000 copies. Project and Student Films. 2. Includes Standard License plus local/cable broadcast up to 300 miles and reproduction from 5,000 to 50,000. 3. Unlimited Reproduction.

I’m definitely up for something like the first 2. Maybe 3 being optional for the composer.

The iPhone is a great platform for this kind of thing. What really interests me is the stuff going on over at http://www.itouchmidi.com/. I’ve got a friend who’s into VJing, and he’s managed to get ArKaos wired up to his iPhone to control the whole show!

Just wondering – can you get $150 for a web roundup too, or are these just written by the AT team?

The only free strings or brass I came across were made by DSK called DSK Brass and DSK Strings. They’re not amazing, but worth a try.

I also used to get soundfonts from here and play them as a VSTi using SFZ Player

I agree with you. Maybe I’m just bitter because my one on composition techniques got rejected but there are loads of “tutorials” which don’t exactly fit the wiki definition:

A tutorial is one method of transferring knowledge and may be used as a part of learning. More interactive and specific than a book or a lecture; a tutorial seeks to teach by example and supply the information to complete a certain task.

Maybe each tutorial posted there should state at the beginning what it’s going to teach you.
