I submitted 5 different songs around 10 days ago and I just received rejection emails for all of them. There’s nothing very specific about whats wrong with the files, just this:
“This submission does not meet our commercial production (samples/recording/mixing/mastering) standard, and our commercial composition/arrangement standard, unfortunately.”
However, I can’t tell what exactly needs to be fixed.
Samples: I use some of the best VSTs out there, so probably not this.
Recording: It’s all samples. I didn’t record any source.
Mixing/Mastering: This is probably what could be what’s wrong, just because I mixed/mastered all songs by myself. But I’d like to know for sure since I don’t want to resubmit and wait 10 days to get the same response.
Also, I’m not a 10 year veteran but I do have experience mixing and mastering so it’s not like I just launched Pro Tools for the first time.
I’m not here to tell you I did it right, everything I do is perfect and Envato is wrong. I just want to know what exactly is wrong to fix it and not waste time/money.
Thanks a lot
