Hello all. This track was rejected because the item did not meet the general commercial quality standard required to be accepted on AudioJungle.

I would appreciate any feedback. Thanks.

First, let me say I like the overall piece. That being said,

  1. The intro is WAY too long. I was dying to move on and get to it and had a hard time not fast forwarding. That’s a no-go in commercial music. Get to the point fairly quickly.

  2. The intro contains no melodic content. Just chords and while nice chords, they don’t keep the attention.

  3. Tempo seems inconsistent

  4. Dynamic range is way too wide. Big swings in volume make a piece unusable for commercial purposes.

Other than that, I love it! :slight_smile: It opens up (finally) very nicely and I think you have a great start.

Thanks very much for the feedback.

I had #1 one on my list of rejection reasons. And #4… well, I thought there weren’t enough dynamics but I get what you’re saying about big jumps in volume. That alone should save me a lot of frustration since I have tendency to do that.
