My second upload was rejected hardly O.M.G , can you help me solve the mystery?


#1

hi friends ,

I received hard rejection on audiojungle , no explanations were suggested, can you help me figure out why?

thank a lot

Mr. Talchik


#2

The production sounds quite dated and “computery” - not life-like enough instrument sounds etc. Not enough dynamics or variation. Likely it was rejected because of the production standard? (They tell you in the email.)


#3

Thanx Toivo for your quick response

no , they mention the composition\arrangement wasn’t in the standard

“This submission does not meet our general commercial composition/arrangement standard, unfortunately”.

it suppose to sound “computerish” , is it wrong?
and the music split to A-B-A-B - very simple , nothing fancy , is that wrong?


#4

Fun track, a bit too repetitive perhaps. Sounds a bit like Monkey Island music from the 90’s. In general I think it’s better to go with more modern sounds. Also, always good to bring in another section than your A and B for variation.


#5

Yeah, definitely sounds “computerish” and by computerish I mean it doesn’t sound much better than midi. Actually reminds me a bit of this.

Monkey Island


#6

The mixing doen´t sound great, it´s small and poorly defined. It´s like a midi without mixi and master. Try with a modern mix next time and good luck :wink: The song is veru funny :smile:

hi stockwaves, adammonroe and RBP , Big thanx!

I understand from comments that the main issue is the genre issue , i agree the mix can be greater , and i can understand the A-B formula can go more complex ,even so i do like it that way. but i think the genre thing is the problem ,
well , monkey island is a great game! and the music there is magical , in my opinion .
i was targeting music that will communicate with the early 90’ computer games . by my opinion it can sell to people in search for that type of music , or people like me influenced by it . unfortunately i see envato market doesn’t share the same opinion as me .

do you know if there’s any way I can speak with envato market representative? I would really want to know the reason , and maybe share my view on the genre issue and maybe we will reach understanding .

and if not , do you know any music marketing sites that can appreciate “retro alike” kind of music? 'cause i’d really like to create and explore these regions , and i will be happy to be motivated by trade sites.

thank you so much for your attention and advices.

Mr.Talchik

thanx RBP!

what do you mean by modern mix?


#9

Hear dubstep like Skrillex or Monstercat, its like a video game music but the sound is too diferent. Extrabass, ultradefinide frecuencies sounds, etc


#10

Yeah, sounds a bit like the demo song on a Yamaha PSS 30. Could be seen as a stylistic choice I guess, and might be suitable for some kind of kids TV musical montage, but I can understand why they rejected it. I liked it though!


#11

Kids TV definitely, cute and retro. Maybe you should have explained your thinking behind the track in the message to reviewer at the bottom of the upload page?


#12

yeah, thnx maybe I will

like your comment (:smile:


#13

I think its catchy :smile:


#14

Hi MrTalchik! Start is always difficult. I wish you every success in the future! :yellow_heart: :green_heart:

As for the track: Too simple melody, even for children’s music. More precisely, as we say the middle is empty! Will be difficult to sell this track dezhe if missed it.


#15

I actually like this track a lot. For apps, videos games, etc it could be perfect. I know where you were going with the computer-y sound. The one thing I would change is the wide electric guitar (at least I think thats what it is) that’s doubling the melody in the beginning and also comes back in after the B section. The tone needs to be different on that instrument, or maybe just turned down.


#16

yeah thnks, its been a while and i actually sold this track to one application game , they loved it.there is nothing wrong with the melody ofcourse,nothing wrong with the ABAB structure, it is simple and stupid , and thats why it is awesome. i think in the conclusion by reading carefully all the comments to my question , i figure out that there is nothing really wrong with my track , some people got it , some didnt… i think the envanto team is a bit conservative and they dont get it if you dont fit to their taste.
