Hello everybody! Please help me understand why Audio Jungle refuse my music. I’m new on this site and I want to understand what i need to improve so that Audio Jungle accepts my music. You can listen to my music through the link below:
"Thank you for your submission. We have completed our review of “Intense Epic Trailer” 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 feedback from our review team:
This item does not meet the general commercial quality standard required to be accepted on AudioJungle, unfortunately."
Thanks for the answer. I actually played the stacatto track. I figured that a slight delay between one note and another would give the music a bit of humanity, not something robotic. But, in your opinion it would be better then to hit the stacatto notes more in time, right?
The music in general is within the click of 150 bpm.
Listen to cinematic examples by Audiomachine, Two Steps from Hell, Thomas Bergersen, etc. and compare to your track and you’ll see there’s a big gap in quality between what you have here and the commercial standard you’re aiming for.
Your track isn’t bad but it lacks the mix quality and fullness of arrangement of these references. It’s not enough just to take a string ostinato and then put a french horn or flute melody behind it with the same timpani pattern repeating for the whole track. Drums need to be a lot more dynamic and interesting, and you need better transition effects between sections. It’s not enough just to put a single isolated cymbal crash at the end of a section, it’s jarring and sounds out of place.
My best advice would be take your track and a reference track and listen to them back to back to hear the difference. Then try to adjust yours to match the reference. Your musical ideas are solid here but the mixing and arrangement is lacking and that’s what I think is responsible for the rejection
Thanks for the reply. As I am at the beginning, trying to enter the royalty free music market, I am using the tools I have. These issues that you identified, I think a lot of it is because of the samples I use that are old. Would you have a hint of good recent samples to compose a good quality track?
I find it easier in an orchestrated soundtrack, so I use strings, woods, piano, brass, horns, percussion. Could you give a hint of good samples that reproduce such sounds with quality? Grateful.
Have you looked at Albion One? It has everything you are looking for except the piano. Plus a ton of loops and pads. I’m sure there are probably better libraries out there, but I think this is a good starting point. Especially if you get it on sale.
Thank you very much. One last question. I didn’t find in the Envato documentation anything about LUFs for the audios. Is there any pattern? I’ve found songs ranging from -11 to -9 LUFs. Need to be so tall?
I made a better mix of my audio as I identified several problems after your analysis. Despite knowing that my biggest problem is the sound source, what do you think? Still need to improve the mix? Below the audio link
