Hi! So I just submitted 5 pieces to AJ and had 1 approved (yay!) and 4 hard rejected. Here is one of the rejected tunes. Can anyone please critique/ give insights to why it may have been hard rejected? Thanks!

BTW - here is the info I got from the official review from AJ -
This item does not meet the general commercial quality standard required to be accepted on AudioJungle, unfortunately.

Corporate genre is the hardest to write these days because of so many high quality tracks in this category. But this rejection might have something to do with your snare, it sounds outdated (namely from 80s). I don’t think mixing or mastering is the issue here.

Thanks for commenting. The snare is an odd ball sample so perhaps you are correct. I really appreciate you taking the time to reply. Sometimes it is difficult to judge what the problem is in a piece when you’ve been working on it for a while. I wish I got a soft rejection about the snare, that would have been a pretty easy fix. Best regards
