Rejected material, why?

Hi everybody,
I recently submitted some material to Audiojungle and it was rejected.

Why a song is rejected?
I mean, in order to submit better material I need to know why the submission has been rejected:
Audio quality? Mastering quality? Technical problems? “Sound”? Genre? Type of composition (I don’t believe, the average quality of compositions in Audiojungle is very low in term of creativity)?
How can I have more information about my submission?

Thanks and best regards,

You can find a lot of general information on this page:

But many authors simply post their rejected songs here on the forum to get feedback from the community. (Most comments are very honest, some are a bit crude, but if you are open to constructive critics, I think it can be very positive in the end). :slight_smile:


Thank you very much for the quickest answer in the world!

First of all I want to tell that I’m not angry about the rejection, I only want to understand.

I was curious to know if my file had some technical issue in order to upload a hi-quality-standard material.
I think to be proud and strong enough :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: to read negative comments to my work, as I know if it is good or bad (in term of composition). I mean, I’m aware if I spent two our or two days making a composition.
I also know that A LOT of compositions uploaded in Audiojungle have a VERY POOR LEVEL of creativity. I think that the same chords are present on a half of compositions in the market.

Soon I’ll upload here something to understand what they mean with “out of standards”.

thanks for all!

Best way to find out is to upload here and let other authors comment on your track.


I think I know what chord progression you talk about… it’s everywhere! :smiley:

Two things probably explain this:

1 - A ton of buyers continue to buy that stuff as if it’s the freshest fruit on earth.

2 - No one can claim the rights over basic chord progressions, so people use them over and over…

But keep in mind that a lot of tracks are used as backgrounds to video productions or under voice overs, so I think that’s why many authors go for very basic musical beds with little variations. But I know of a few composers producing more complex tracks that are still selling well, so there’s a place for them too.

About the quality around here, let’s be realist, many tracks are selling for 19$, of which authors get around 10$, more or less, so only a minority of composers record professional musicians in hi-tech studios; the rest of the crowd make do with vst’s in home studios and the occasional guitar track here and there. This might explain that, at least in part.

That said, my opinion is that the quality of most accepted tracks seems to be generally higher than a few years ago.

Good luck! :slight_smile:


I agree totally with your answer.
I am a video editor and I use AJ material, so I well know what is useful for video and what is not. Sometimes you need more personality and a complex composition, sometimes not, but if I want to have the maximum quality in term of composition often I need to go to other libraries that cost a lot (150-300€ per song).
I don’t want to judge the audio quality, every song is well recorded and mastered…mostly…

That said, my opinion is that the quality of most accepted tracks seems to be generally higher than a few years ago.


ROCK! :wink:

If you’re already familiar with Audiojungle, all the better. This place sure is a different beast than most top tier music libraries; for the good sides… and the not so good! :wink:

Yeah, rock! Time to smash my ukulele and get serious! :metal:
