Please help me understand, hard rejected again


#1

Hi. I’ve received hard rejection on audiojungle (This submission does not meet our general commercial composition/arrangement standard, unfortunately.). This is the third work is rejected. I’d really like to know what I’m doing wrong. I shall be grateful for your comments.

I think that they’ve rejected it because you’re using synths/samples that don’t sound realistic enough. A little bit of reverb to blend everything in would also help.


#3

I think too much HH volume and eq is not balanced.


#4

Strings sounds too flat. Maybe more reverb and eq could make them more interesting. Also, I recommend you add more dynamic in composition.

Good luck!

I agree with the other comments. There’s definitely potential to turn it into a great track though.

The biggest issue I have is that the guitar and synths don’t sound realistic enough to me. I would drop the drums in sooner and build the song up a bit more. Add more elements later in the piece to keep it interesting. I think increasing the tempo by a few beats would help make it sound more exciting too.

Also, this could be a quality issue with the Soundcloud link, but it sounds like a really bad mp3. Check to ensure you are uploading a very high quality file.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for your comments! I will continue to work and try to make the track more realistic.
