AudioJungle Author: Plastic3


Classical guitar, hard work, playing tennis, and Rode microphones. Our sister site AudioJungle is a royalty-free stock audio site that helps musicians earn money. In this interview series you’ll learn about those musicians, their gear, and their AudioJungle experiences. Today we meet Plastic3.

Tell us a bit about yourself. Where are you from, what do you do for a living?

I'm from Dniepropetrovsk in the Ukraine, and I make my living as a songwriter, singer, and for the last five years also as an arranger. :)

Which marketplaces do you belong to? What types of files do you sell?

I belong to AudioJungle. This is a really great place for selling your music. :) I sell all types of files, but mostly music tracks of different styles - from ambient and pop-trance to children and dance music... Recently I also have started to upload stock footage on VideoHive - I espeсially like time lapse video of a clouds. :)

How did you get started? Have you had any formal training?

I have written songs for a few leading Russian singers and at least five of them were popular in Russia and Ukraine. :) When I was 12 years old, I had about five years of classical training on the acoustic guitar, and now I play a little on keyboards.

Describe your home workspace.

My home workspace is very ascetically. :) I have:

  • a laptop with music programs,
  • an M-Audio Ozonic Firewire interface,
  • Fostex PM1-MK2,
  • Rode K2 microphone,
  • Hohner acoustic guitar,
  • AKG K171 studio headphones.

In the near future i plan to buy an electric guitar.

Describe your creative process. What steps do you normally follow to create your files?

Step 1: Get an idea of the track and melody.
Step 2: Selection of instruments and samples.
Step 3: Recording, mixing and mastering.

What is your advice to other authors regarding how to create a successful portfolio?

I have one piece of advice: Work hard and improve your ability. :)

What do you do to market your files?

I have used Twitter to promote my files, but I don't know is this helped me at all, because I still have not earned any money from the referral links I have put there.

What are your three favorite files, and why do you like them?

It's very hard to choose three favorite files. :) I have a section "My Favorite Tracks" in my profile, where I list more than three. :) But however:

1. A very powerful and melodious track with a synth-pop sound and electric guitar - Your Voice.

2. My very popular, easy and light track with bright acoustic guitar solo - I've Got Sunshine.

3. A mysterious and rythmical vocal track - Candles In The Wind.

Apart from yourself, who is your favorite marketplace author, and why do you like them?

Very difficult to choose one author. I think they are Dejans and Musicant - very professional authors with powerful portfolio.

What do you do in your spare time?

In my spare time I usually play tennis (real tennis and table tennis), soccer, swim in the pool, and spend time with my girlfriend. In general, I try to behave myself. :)

Thank you all for your attention. I am very happy to be with you a part of AudioJungle!
