I need help !! I don’t take rejection well, LOL. but after these 2,
what is my problem.
I do this for a living, and have many repeat clients.
I just wanted to expand, bt with AJ, they respond like I
am an amateur.
Maybe I am an amateur that has just been lucky.
my latest 2 rejections:
is it the:
STYLE? (SHOULDN’T MATTER)
My Rejection letter:
Thank you for your submission. We have completed our review of “Everytime” and unfortunately we found it isn’t at the quality standard required to move forward, and you won’t be able to re-submit this item again.
Here is the comment from your Envato Quality team reviewer:
This submission does not meet AudioJungle’s commercial composition/arrangement standard, unfortunately.
To understand commercial stock composition and arrangement better, please read the following article http://enva.to/6D-sd
I’m also struggling with hard rejects but I think I can identify the issues in these tracks, that’s why I commented. Don’t feel too bad, rejects are a great way of progressing. That’s how I look at my hard rejected tracks.

Question, can a mix be “Thick”, or “Dense”,
Without being considered muddy?[/quote]
Yes, and frankly, I cannot identify a lot of instruments in your first track.The distorted “lightning” sound is all over the place and is mudding other instruments. I think you may have over-used saturation/distortion or increased the gain knob of your limiter too high.
Even if you get a professional jazz drummer, I doubt this track can be turned into a jazz track just by changing the drums. The chord progression and harmony doesn’t sound like jazz to me at all. Maybe it’s a better idea to aim at “cinematic” genre. But consider that multiple submission of a hard rejected track can result in revoking your rights to upload anything on AJ.
