who decides if the beats submitted are stolen or not?
my brother made an account the other day and submitted four tunes,hes been makin beats for about 10 years now on propper software so nearly everything he makes sounds like its ripped of something,
it sounds to me like your saying if the songs submitted sound "too professionaly made" then they will be rejected......is that right?
You have to consider this from a Mod's point of view.
The numbers Rucklo was throwing out (150+ new artists/songs a weekend) are ridiculously overwhelming for a small group of people. I'm sure they listen to so many things their ears have suffered irreparable damage.
The chances of them hearing a legit song produced by a legit artist out of those numbers are very, very slim. So logically the better option is to ban and be safe, rather than approve every single song that sounds legit, for fear of making someone upset whose actually produced something legit.
You see what I mean?
Sure, it's not perfect, but it's the lesser of two evils.
Also, no, it's not that you have to make a shitty submission to be approved. Rather, they're expecting a "NEW" artist to be relatively "NEW" to making music. A lot of the really good people on this site first submitted really terrible music. It's just a general trend.
So if you're contemplating asking a mod why you haven't been approved after a day, consider going to the audio portal front page and listening to every single song listed (that's 65 songs) and wondering if it make take them longer than you expect.
