Hard rejected but can't understand why. Need help!

Hey all,

So this track just got hard rejected and to be honest we all get hard rejections, its not a big deal. HOWEVER, with this track i am honestly quite surprised and a little disheartened because i was genuinely excited for this track to be on Audiojungle and had no idea it would get rejected. It has a big market which i intended to be vloggers on YouTube who i personally have seen use this kind of track loads of times. I really can’t identify a problem with the track so can someone give me some advice here?


Thank you so much,

Imho the problem with this track is that the production sounds very “cheap” for the lack of a better word. The sounds are plasticky, everything sounds “keyboardish” and has a midi feel… there is no life, no depth, in the track at all. Then you have a simplistic, almost naive, melody and progression, so that these things combined give the track an 80ies elevator music touch, if you know what I mean. So, unless someone is looking for that cheap sound, this track would have a hard life here looking at the competition. I believe that the reviewers are simply looking for higher quality productions these days. Hope this helps a little!

Thanks so much for the input, really appreciate it. Honestly, i dont hear it sounding “plasticky and cheap”. I watch a lot of travel vlogs and i hear them use this type of sound a lot. I’m not just disagreeing with you to disagree but trying to understand it haha.

My track is rejected with a mark too “your experimental too experimental” I long laughed… it seems and high quality and an atmosfernost are, and isn’t present go do corporate.

Hi @AaronWildeMusic! I think main problem that mood of track and instruments that you used is to far from background music. Try to listen top-sellers to understand trends. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Thank you so much for your input! :slight_smile:
