This was my first attempt at creating a stock music track. It was hard rejected, and I’d appreciate feedback. The rejection was pretty generic (didn’t meet commercial quality guidelines overall), so I’m not sure whether it’s a mix issue, arrangement, or commercial utility (or a little bit of everything).
I’ve uploaded the full track plus loops:
I’ve gone to the various help and advice pages, and listened more critically - could be repetition (though I kind of want the repetition as it’s intended for background music for content creators, most likely kids shows, and repetition seems to be popular for those).
I suspect quantisation would have helped, and I could have put in a little more variation, and the percussion could be improved. Searching for similar tracks using the term “ukulele”, my track seems to hold up ok, but I’m just starting out, so I’m definitely missing experience to judge properly.
I’d appreciate honest feedback - mostly to work out if the whole concept is bad for AJ, or whether I’m on the right road, but some tweaks would have helped.
Thanks for reading.
