What the heck? Why was my message removed? There was nothing inappropriate about it. Simply calling out Tim Mcmorris for belittling AJ. I didn’t swear or use profanity. My guess is he did though, because his is removed as well.
My profession is a Music Supervisor. I use to compose a lot more but time is stretched thin these days. I come on to AJ from time to time because there is some great stuff here. Dreamsfall, Palmtreep, SkyProductions, Slats and Jun have wonderful stuff, as do many of you. Keep it up!
I do wish AJ had a feature to choose(pick) the top authors other than just sales. Like Top Authors for specific genres, chosen by the staff by QUALITY . You guys would get much more sales that way IMHO .
Have a Corporate top 100, a Cinematic top 100, a Horror top 100 etc, etc….us Music Supervisors could really use that.
Your top authors are good, no doubt but they are not diverse enough. There are so many amazingly talented composers hidden under your top author which have very license-able material but can’t be found because the only top 10 you have are for the most part corporate music only.
Just my 2 cents though. Cheers.

Hello! I am an economist by profession, and I am a trader. Also, I work in a taxi. And most importantly, I write music since childhood, I grew up in a family of musicians.:)
Congrats on your baby and good luck!
@guitarjock: Hope the things will change very soon and you’ll find an interesting job and increase your sales on AJ!
I (Arina) studied piano and vocal at the music school, choir conducting at music college, sound engineering for films at the institute and took composition and piano lessons in Russia. Last 7 years I’m a full time singer, songwriter, composer and music producer.
My husband Yury studied jazz guitar and composition at music college and live sound engineering at sound school in Israel. For more than 10 years he is a guitarist in different bands, composer and sound producer.
These posts are really interesting. Initially I thought most people here were full time musicians…
Hi, I’m producing commercials (TV/Radio/corporate films etc.) as a sound engineer working in a post pro – recording voice talents, sound design, mixing… Nice tp be here. Steven
I produce music full time ( mostly demos and overdubs ) and play keyboards for a show in a tourist area. This makes for a long day but I am thankful for the income.
On another note, I personally think Christa394 made a personal attack on Tim McMorris. I read both messages and frankly Christa394 was way out of line. Opinions are one thing but you crossed the line. Tim’s response was first class and as always, appropriate. Tim has been an encouragement to authors on AJ and helped me personally. Tim is anything but conceded. Self promotion is a must in this business and he does it well. You owe him a public apology.
