While I appreciate all the wonderful things Envato and AudioJungle as offered to me and all the AJ authors throughout the years, there are couple of things that have bugged me a bit for quite a long time, and I’d love to see them fixed.
the requirement to create watermark files manually is clunky system that should be done automatically at the server side. There are many AJ competitor sites that do this - you just upload the main wav files and everything is done for the author automatically. It feels sort of unbelievable that it is year 2017 and one of the biggest sites still requires such a repetitive manual work from the author side. Every time I start the AJ upload process I get the same “oh no, not this process again…” and I believe I am not the only one.
the system for creating music packs is even more clunky - as the AudioJungle already has all of the required files for the pack, the UI should allow the creator to see a list of items that are not yet in music packs, grouped under categories and he would be able to click (with checkboxes) what items he’d like to put into the new pack and the system would automatically generate the description links to those items, their lengths etc. and also generate the music pack preview audio file based on this selection with right time codes in the generated description baseline. The idea that the author has to do all this himself manually is the biggest obstacle that seriously cuts the amount of music packs available.
I’d love to hear your ideas and support on these points and I’d really appreciate it if none of the answers would contain statements like “if you make the upload process too easy there will be too much competition on AJ”.
Bad UI is not the way to handle item volume.
