Small Celebration

I just had a really big sale on AJ, and so am pausing to celebrate and pat myself on the back.

What people actually buy on Audio Jungle (aside from the music files themselves) is a license to use the music for commercial projects. So the songs are more expensive that they would be on a site like iTunes or Amazon MP3. A standard license for my "Bottle Jam" song costs $17. Not too shabby.

An extended license for that song lets people use it in larger commercial project that can then be resold to other end users. Like the kind of project someone does for a larger advertising campaign. THAT costs $85, and is a much bigger deal. I just sold one of those.

I'd love to be cool enough to brush it off and say "Oh, yeah...I sell those extended licenses all the time. No biggie." The truth is that extended licenses are still pleasant surprises to me.

The extra cash is nice of course, but the nice thing is to know that someone thinks highly enough of something I've written & recorded that it's worth dropping that kind of cash on. I wouldn't mind getting to the point where it isn't a big deal. For now, it's still cause for a mini-celebration.

This one isn't posted to Soundcloud, so if you would like to hear it, you can use this link... http://audiojungle.net/item/bottle-jam/48638

A little Renaissance Music

I'm calling this one "Renaissance Faire". I was in the mood to do something medieval/renaissance/celtic sounding, and this is what came out. There's a mini Renaissance faire out past Sugar Grove every year that we sometimes visit. I needed to buy an ox-horn last time so I could call the kids to dinner even while they're wearing headphones. I thought it was an excellent, if ancient, solution to a modern problem. They love it. (OK. I love it.)

There is a big Renaissance faire held every summer between Franklin and Barkeyville at a huge campground. I've never been there, but would like to try it sometime. I'll bet I could buy something that would annoy my children even more! (In my defense, turnabout, is fair play.) Anyway, grab a tankard of mead and have a listen.

A Good Start

Just a quick post to say that my first two submissions were both accepted and are available on Audio Jungle.

Also worthy of note is the fact that I'm only $365 away from bumping up to the next sales level on the site. It would mean I would get a whole single percentage more from each sale than I currently do. It might mean an extra trip to a fast food restaurant each year. If I'm lucky. We'll see.

First 2014 Submissions

I just finished submitting my first two audio clips for this season, "Quick Pizzi" & "Floating Down."

Neither are anything earth shattering. The first is an 8 second branding clip, and the second is a 20 second clip to accompany descending stuff. You know; elevators, floating feathers, that kind of stuff.

I haven't submitted anything since last summer, so I started small to see how long the approval (hopefully) process takes, and if my audio quality is up to snuff.

Back in the saddle again.
