Hey there everyone. Newbie here. I uploaded a track I considered polished. It got rejected as it was not up to commercial standard according to the reviewer. I want see if I can learn from the community about why it is not on commercial standard. Is it the textures, instruments, mixing, arrangement, melodies? Any feedback will be amazing. Thank you!
No recommendations by anyone?
I think the main issue for AJ is that it sounds a bit dated instrumentwise.
And from a mixpoint view you could maybe be a little bit tighter when it comes to instrument seperation thru Panning and EQing. That’s my 2 cents, but i’m also only part of this website for 2 months, so I’m also trying to figure stuff out haha
my 80s track was rejected also.
Good luck man!
Mixing and mastering could be punchier and more charismatic, but I see nothing wrong with it as an 80s retro theme track. I’ve had a few tracks rejected on basis of style only. Maybe that was it.
Thank you guys, appreciate the feedback. Need to just get back at it and try again
