Item Rejected HELP

Im really having problems with my envato submissions, started uploading again from a long time of not producing for this site, due to the lack of quality. Now I feel on the right spot, but I’m still having issues:

  • “this item does not meet the general commercial quality standard required to be accepted on AudioJungle, unfortunately.” ,

If someone can help a little I would really appreciate it. Thanks for reading and listening :slight_smile:

SoundCloud A New Beginning

Hey, I’m not a professional by any means but I think I can tell you a couple of possible reasons of the rejection. Please keep in mind that I’m just trying to help by being honest.

  • The piano playing sounds too robotic because the lack of dynamics, the velocities need to vary to get the feeling that piano is played by a human.
  • The snare/click sound coming in at 0:16 has very weird EQ on it, I think it’s missing both high and low frequencies and has too much mid frequencies.
  • Starting from 0:33 the string staccatos sound fake and to be honest, a little annoying because of that monotonic rhythm
  • The drums (toms) at 0:50 sound also fake

Hello, I am listening to your track, and the first thing is the piano.
You used different velocities, but it seems the piano you are using always produce the same sound (it just changes the volume) whatever the velocity, so it sounds non-human, robotic.

Now when the rhythm kicks in, with drums and stacc strings, it sounds really too agressive and repetitive. There are many corporate tracks with a steady, repetitive rhythm, but usually, it is with a soft kick drum. Here you have a thin clap, not suited for this genre in my humble opinion.

Globally, with the same composition, I am pretty sure that by trying to find better samples/vstis with a softer, more delicate, less robotic sound you’ll already have a way better track.

Hope this helps!

Hi, I agree with the points above and will add that there is a very unpleasant rumbling in the low frequencies in the section from 0:50 to 1:06. I think it might be the reverb on the toms, so I would recommend EQ the low frequencies out of that reverb. __
