My song was hard rejected. Any feedback much appreciated.

Hello.

Audiojungle hard rejected this song which I submitted as a ‘simple underscore that sits well under speech’. Any advice as to why they didn’t want it would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Hey David, your track has a nice feel to it. My guess it’s mainly mixing that has caused the rejection. You could work on the electric piano and piano dynamics to be more consistent, adjusting velocities to be less extreme and then using compression to smooth the volumes. Right now you have soft chords with loud stabs that jump out a little too much. Also maybe a little too much sub-bass frequencies in the master? Cutting below 50hz could help, and also side-chain compression on the bass synth so it isn’t fighting the kick. Hope that helps!
