Hey guys, I wanted your thoughts on this and I hope to get the attention of Envato too possibly!
I’m a non-exclusive composer and I have contributed music to Audiojungle for the past 3 years. Like many of you who are not part of the Envato Elements program, I too think it would be great if we could be allowed to join Elements without an author compatibility review process.
I am part of a few other subscription based sites which allow both the option for a single purchase or subscription service and they do not limit the amount of artists that can be part of their whole business model.
I do understand Envato’s reasons for doing this, don’t get me wrong. I understand that Elements strives for premium quality music and do not want loads of average/standard tracks clogging up their marketplace and sort of ruining Element’s reputation. However, it would be great if any artist from Audiojungle can immediately join Elements but at the same time go through a more specific SUBMISSION approval process.
I think the amount of submission slots given to the composer should be solely based on approval rate, very very similar to how Audiojungle currently operate at the moment.
Elements will still be able to maintain a standard of high quality for their music whilst composers that never had the chance to submit certain songs will get that chance finally.
I think even if composer of 300 AJ tracks gets around 5 - 10 great tracks approved on their site then I think that everyone should have that opportunity.
I think the current business model is out of touch compared to other libraries and it would benefit both the library and composers to join forces as opposed to this sort of musical segregation - without sounding extreme of course!
If anyone has any thoughts on this I welcome you to comment!
Have a great day and wish you all many sales
