HI! This track was rejected because of a ‘quality issue’, but that is not very helpful. It was accepted on 2 other platforms, so I am wondering if I can get an honest opinion on this track. as to why you think it would be rejected here. It’s straightforward happy uplifting.
Hi, I came to an impression quite quickly that the track sounds too busy, crowded, and muffled, with fake-sounding guitars, and generally not up-to-date sounding instrument sounds. It’s not clear what genre it intends to be, and there is no cohesive theme or melody.
We all do this sometimes, but I feel as if you are coming at things from the wrong angle. It’s as if you had an idea, which dictated what kind of track you were going to make, what I mean is: that the idea ran away with itself, and took you off brief. Does that make sense?
My suggestion is, to have a good listen to successful tracks on here, in a genre that you feel like writing in, and try to notice what it is about them that makes them successful, and why a buyer might choose that track to support their visuals.
Compare your music to what you might be hearing on the latest tv adverts etc, how does it measure up? Ask yourself how you can produce music that meets our typical buyer’s needs: they are often needing unobtrusive background music, which supports the mood of their theme, without being too virtuosic or attention-grabbing.
@AndySlatter Thanks soooo much for taking the time to give me an expanded critique, it’s really appreciated. I guess I was trying to write a ‘good song’ rather than writing for commercial use. Not saying this is a good song
I was trying my hand at music that is outside what I have been writing for a long time, but practice makes perfect. Or at least, better
My takeaway is I need to focus on what a buyer would want, not just write a song.
Sadly for me I turned it off before it got to 49 seconds. Okay I don’t write music, or have the ability to create what authors like you can do. This is no critique of your professional abilities, but to me it was boring, unininspiring and didn’t grab my attention - I have bought about 15 to 20 audiojungle tunes, and for me I am then looking at music that can go with advertising, be upbeat or as @AndySlatter says to support visuals or videos that we create to promote business users.
If you go on Audiojungle, search by sales or reviews, then you get an idea what people are looking for at this present time.
Apart from that knockback, well done and I have nothing but admiration for professionals like yourself. Best wishes
@bobfox Wow!!! That was awesome. This was one of my first tracks to submit, the tracks I am starting now I am doing mastering to. I own Steiberg Wavelab so I will be using that. They have many of the tools that you were using to make the track sound way better. I guess I should have done the mastering before I submitted this!! You did an awesome job, and I thank you.
I will remaster this track, but they say not to resubmit, not sure if that means ever again, or just this time around. Unfortunately, I can only submit 2 tracks per month right now. I may have to use other libraries if I cannot submit more frequently to AJ. It will take too long to get enough tracks up.
Hi! This track can be resubmit again after fixing by improving the quality of its sound. But I wood like recommended to You to start fixing this track at the mixing stage, some instruments have a lot of volume at frequencies of 120-400Hz (turn down these frequencies with an equalizer). It is at the mixing stage that You need to achieve a balance frequencies of track. Sorry for my English, I am not a native English. Good luck!!!
