How I got deactivated from AudioMicro
Okay, so the year before I had uploaded my entire Soundcloud page to AudioMicro, but because the tracks needed descriptions, keywords, and categories, I had spent about a whole entire week editing each individual track to pass AudioMicro's curators. I was around 40 tracks in when I decided, hey why not just submit half for now, and edit the other half while waiting for AudioMicro to review my music??
Well, this is exactly what happened. AudioMicro deactivated my account but not before rejecting most of the songs I had uploaded. AudioMicro doesn't notify you before doing so, but the reason given for rejection was the use of 'type beats' in the titles and/or quality standards. On one hand, I understand completely! Now, you shouldn't take it personal if this happens, but keep in mind there's always other platforms for you. Here's just an example of the kind of song which got rejected by AudioMicro.
