I was considering back and forth to post this. Maybe I will earn very harsh reactions like a storm of excretions .(sorry for that word, but the short version was removed)
I don’t want to offend anyone with this post. I also don’t want to appear as arrogant.
The most of the people here know, that I try to help if someone asks for help or for an opinion about a rejected track. I try to do that in an objective manner and want to be friendly as good as I can.
But in the last weeks I noticed, that people want to know the reasons for their track rejections. Those tracks are in a very desolate state. And I am a bit shocked about the fact, that they really thought, this track could be ever approved.
I know, everyone of us has started to compose music at a time. We all, including me, were going a long and hard way to learn about music and mixing and we learn every day a bit more. I also started with compositions where I lmao if I hear that today. But: At this state I knew all the time, that my music isn’t good enough to get published or used in a commercial way. I waited very very long before I dared to publish my first song here - and I talk about many years, not days, not months.
I am concerned, why people try to publish tracks with a very poor quality and wonder why they get rejected. These tracks lack in every aspect of commercial music and quality. Sometimes I don’t know, how to start to help them, because everything in their tracks is wrong. I am concerned, because these people seems to do nothing in preparations like hearing music from other successful authors, watching videos, learning about composing and mixing. They throw a piece of noise on the market. Sorry to say that in this hard words.
No, my own music isn’t perfect. I am neither an outstanding composer nor a particularly successful author here. But I try to do my homework, every day.
So, no one forces me to help other people. No one forces me to comment their work.
But I assume, that this lack of quality and the high amount of tracks such like this could have a long term impact on the overall quality here on AJ. If a reviewer has to judge the whole day over 80% of waste, he will approve then a track which is maybe better than waste, but not good enough to compete with other marketplaces.
And yes, this includes a more strong quality review on my own tracks also. AJ needs a higher quality.
