Second Rejection in a Row - Need Some Help With What to do Next

#1

Hi all,

Back again with my second rejection in a row and struggling to ascertain exactly where I went wrong on this one as well.

I’m at almost 250 sales on my AudioJungle account (https://audiojungle.net/user/jamessismanes/portfolio), not outstanding but not at a rudimentary level either. However I’m really out of ideas as to where to go and what to do next.

Here’s my latest submission:

Rejected for the following reason: After some consideration it has been decided that this submission does not meet our commercial composition/arrangement standard, unfortunately.

Any feedback would be highly appreciated - it’s challenging given that one of Envato’s biggest flaws is not providing its contributors with adequate constructive criticism, thus leaving us in a kind of limbo as we try to figure out how to improve our productions to meet the expectations of reviewers.

Thanks very much in advance.

You decided to single track, to add all possible tools style of “the Corporation”? melodies: don’t play together but in turn. and you have too poisonous upper frequency range . do softer, cut out the resonances of your music is too obtrusive a character as the rock. “Corporate” style, for background . Good luck.

I’m going to give my opinion, I’m not an expert, it seems they are two different tracks, the first 38 seconds the melody is in swing, and then there is a change to straight (the electric guitar feels strange with the top melody of the chimes/marimba), and then back to swing, for me is a bit strange, the main motive of the melody is nice, but it is very repetitive…

Thanks very much for your candid responses @DastAudio and @EvgenM. I will revisit your comments and endeavour to make improvements on my next submission.
