Out of all my tracks, the one that I like the most has never sold. Perhaps it’s too niche or I just don’t have very commercial taste. A track I wrote specifically for corporate use has sold the most. As predictable as this is it’s still a little… disheartening.

Just a thought. :)

Do not despair – many of my favourite tracks have not sold well or at all. Just keep writing and maybe just maybe your favourite track whatever it is will sell in huge amounts! :)

Out of all my tracks, the one that I like the most …

Come on windyhill, tell us which track it is! ;-)

Same to me though. A track, over 8 min. playtime. Can’t count how much hours, days, weeks, months we spend on it until it’s got this dimension. 0 sales and may be never change. Sad. :-(

Should take it away and find another place for it.

EDIT: BTW, just had a look on your page. Not many items since march. Keep on uploading great tracks and see what will happen. Sometimes it can be surprising and you’re selling a track first after a long time.

Hi windyhill,
I know that feeling… In fact, at the beginning, MY favorite songs are all rejected, or in the best case, I’ve had a soft rejection, and I had to adjust. Of course, that has hurt my feelings, but… Then I figured out how this works (at least I think so :D ) and I started to make songs that respond to the market place. And guess what … After two years, sales have started!!! Don`t give up! :)

Best,
Mipla

Yes, the track that you sweat over for several days that you’re proud of and is musically interesting often gets no sales while the simple jingle that you put together in a few hours sells well!!

That’s the commercial market I guess. People don’t usually want complexity, just a catchy tune that they can hum straight away! :D

How long ago did you upload your favourite track? I had the same issue with my favourite track in the beginning. It didn’t sell at all, but after a year I’ve updated it with a small arrangement improvement which took months to make, but it gained a lot after this change. After this update, it sold a few times.

:) Mine too. That means you have very unique and special tune not for common ordinary use in silly commercial or stupid youtube video :)
