Critic and Feedback on rejected item appreciated.

Hi fellow composers!
I’m quite new to this place (about 6 months). I have 5 items in my portfolio but had also about the same amount of rejected items.
Although it’s not easy to overcome those rejections, I managed to do so and kept on writing new stuff.
This time I actually don’t understand the rejection.
Audiojungle has rejected my new track, which I did a lot of time and make an effort on it. I would be glad to know why this happened! Any critic is welcome. Can I improve it?
Here’s my track: https://soundcloud.com/isonomaofficial/happy-uplifting-corporate-guitar-full/s-b97PODCVU6l

Thank you! Steven

Hi Steven,
Sorry to hear that, it’s a good track, I really like the acoustic guitar. I think you need to improve the mix and master. The drums sound a little flat and dry. Also the strings are a bit dry too. The acoustic guitar sound is great and you should mix everything to match that.
There is something wrong with the timing of the piano melody. It sounds too rushed.
Apart from that, it’s a great composition and I can hear you spent a lot of time writing it. It’s just been let down by the mix.
Have a listen to other tracks from Audiojungle in the genre and use them as a reference.
Good luck with it.
All the best

Mainly a timing issue with the piano and overuse of reverb.

Thank you very much for your help! Much appreciated! You are awesome.
I understand the piano timing issue and all the rest and would agree on it.

Do you think I can upload it again with those changes not violating the Jungle-Rules?

I’m still improving my mixing skills and think there is some headroom :slight_smile:

I spent some time to redo the track and enhance the mix.If you want, you can have a listen here:https://soundcloud.com/isonomaofficial/uplifting-corporate-guitar-pop-fullnew/s-1h4qXZZQMrJ
But I don’t want to stretch help.

Have a nice day and I wish you many sales, Steven

Massive improvement! nice work.
Technically you can’t upload as it’s the same track but it’s up to you. In the past i’ve waited about 6 months before reuploading a track I have significantly improved to be on the safe side.
Good luck, keep on improving those mixes :slight_smile:

Cheers, Steven
