    yeah, I did work that one more, and I´ve done a lot of these too. But then it comes to the question, is it better to do one good, that takes a couple of days, that will not be used, or do 5 or 6 in the same mount of time, and maybe have more chance of one of them being used.

    I repeat, I´m all for quality, but I´m hearing and seeing stuff being used as underscore that is not very creative, but seems to fit something that the editor wants.

    I don´t know.

    But I hear of people here doing 5 – 10 tracks sometimes a day, and having 2000 – 3000 tracks here and there. I mean, not all of them can be masterworks, but functional all the same.

    Thats what I was aiming at with the tracks I posted first, something useful, that has some chance of being put as underscore. I will never get the amount of tracks needed if I spend 2 – 3 days per track.

    and LAwriter, I do agree,

    I however can not spend 100 – 400 dollars per track for mix/master if the track will never get used. I might do it if I had some financial guarantee that the track will be bought. I can do stuff better, takes more time, which I don´t have too much of.

    The big name companies would not like this quality, but hopefully I´m close to the underscore quality for low end productions at the moment. Thats were I need to start I´m afraid. If I see that work, then I might be able to aim for higher.

    I think this is all in your process to getting better. Take some of the money that you make on the next few things you do, and upgrade your Sample Library. Trust me, “The better Libraries need a LOT LESS tweaking of sounds!”

    I´m afraid my friend to tell you my libraries, since you think they sound outdated in my hands 🙂

    Spitfire Albion One, Albion 2, Spit, percussion, Hz percussion, Berlin strings, Berlin ww, Metropolis 1 and 2, Loads of 8dio stuff, Slate digital all access, QL reverb, and loads of other stuff too 🙂

    Logic X, Cubase and Ensemble thunderbolt

    Currently new Imac pro.

    I guess this makes me the guy that has way too much stuff, and does not know how to use it 😉

    They are not doing 5-10 big orchestral tracks a day. They might do a couple 30 sec piano solo pieces, 4 drones (1 minute) and a solo guitar track.

    This business is like investing. No guarantees. Either you can afford to do it (time and money) or you can’t.

    If I see that work, then I might be able to aim for higher.

    IMO, and this is my personal mantra – this is a losing proposition. Guaranteed to fail long term. Especially in today’s market. Just saying’…

    yup, true

    but one has to have some limit on the investing part!!!

    return VS. investment

    If it´s mostly a one way street one has to consider that also.

    I’m sorry but that is not a successful person’s attitude. Those I know who rise to the top of their game and the business NEVER settle for second best, no matter the cost. They just don’t. That doesn’t mean their path is the only path, but I’ve seen it again and again – those with excuses are the ones who give up midstream, or who are never seen as “successful”. Take it for what it’s worth. Aiming for the pinnacle is a good success path. Yes, it’s painful, costly, time consuming and difficult. and there are no guarantees. If you want to succeed in this biz, that’s a time honored and successful path.
