My track has been rejected, please help!


#1

Hi all. I have a track that has been rejected, and I’m not sure why. This exact same track has been selling well on other platforms. All feedback and help welcome! Thank you.


#2

I think it is too mechanic, need to use better sound libraries and is not well mixed.


#3

Yea, bad mixing.
But track is good


#4

The piano sound isn’t real. The sound is not mastered properly. I wish you patience :slight_smile: If you will hard working, you get it! :slight_smile: The composion is good for me :slight_smile: Good luck :slight_smile:

Thanks for the replies, it’s been very helpful.

A couple of quick questions… when you say the mixing is bad, I’m presuming it’s quite obvious to you that it’s bad. Where do the problems lie - the EQ? The stereo panning space? Both? Also, what are you using to hear this, speakers or headphones?

Thanks in advance!

I used only the headphones in this case.
The idea of the track is not bad. I meant this.
The stereo imaging is good.
I believe that the main problem in unnatural strings and a very “glass” piano. The problem with strings can be solved by replacing the library as Manriquedelara said or using legato and automation. Basically I mean the attack of a cello. See PDF of your library.
And try to reduce the frequencies in the region of 2 kHz in order to get rid of the excessive mechanicalness that Manriquedelara spoke about.
Work with a piano in the area of 1.5-3 kHz to get rid of this “glassiness”.
It’s hard to explain what you need to fix and it’s hard to understand what I mean))
I hope, at least these tips will help you a little. And all this is my personal opinion.

Yeah I think it’s really just down to making things sound a little more realistic… I don’t think the mix is all that bad if the instruments didn’t sound quite so sharp in their attack. Soften up the velocities would be the first thing I try and go from there, the idea is pretty solid and I dig the percussion stuff you’ve got going on. Maybe a little more space too…
