In Topic: Too many offers?

Your thoughts, while you have the right to express them, are seriously flawed. And naive, honestly

You, sir, have changed my life. Upon reading your post I starved myself for days and meditated under the Bodhi tree. Thanks to you, friend, I have achieved true enlightenment and feel that I will miraculously rise above the stagnant masses of hopeful composers- only to become the very greatest video game composer ever to not have a solo music career!
If only you weren't there to make me see how flawed and naive I've been... imagine where I'd be. Lost. lost.

I'm just going to jump in with my two cents here.
I'm a passionate musician, I LOVE making music, it's what I do.
There are passionate programmers, developers, etc., who LOVE making games, that's what they do.
The people putting these games out aren't always making money, but people still play the games.
Not everyone is at the same experience level here and not everyone wants to make this a profession.
My situation is this: I have a lot of great tracks, and I'm making more all the time. However, I cannot perform this music live. So why not offer it up to people who can put it in their video games that people are playing? People hear the soundtrack and go, "I like that tune, who is that?" they search the credits and there's my website link. Maybe they click around, download a few tunes, tell a friend, who knows? I gain exposure and experience, which in the end can lead to more paying gigs. People who jump onto the scene demanding money as virtual "nobodies" just end up looking daft and egotistic, IMO.
I don't know where I'm going with this exactly, but what I'm trying to say is that I'd rather have someone play my game or hear my music and enjoy it than get caught up in whether I'm going to be paid for my contribution. I mean, seriously... who gets into music for money?
Just my thoughts, idk.

I'm more of a composer, but I'd be willing to try out some sound design if you'd like. What kind of sounds are you looking for? I'm looking to gain exposure and you seem to be looking to avoid dealing with pesky copyright laws. In short, if you have sounds custom made for your game your worries go away. I'm happy because my name is on something, you're happy because your game sounds great, no? Just a thought, hit me up. email: advancedmusicsubstitute@gmail.com

I'm a great resource. I'm looking for projects. I want to do scores for all types of games. I'm experienced in all types of electronic music and will work with you to get the sound that YOU want for your game. If you need original compositions, then look no further.

In Topic: I need help with music and sound creating.

19 March 2012 - 07:34 AM

Hello, I'm new to the forum here; my first post, actually. I've been producing music for over 8 years, the bulk of it being electronic-styled experimental, etc. What I use these days for all my tracks is a combination of FL Studio 9 and a VERY outdated version of Acid, pre-Sony buyout. There are a number of VSTi's that can definitely get you the sound you want, even if you're a preset junkie like me. (I hate twiddling knobs, I'll be the first to admit it). Still, if you'd rather sculpt your own sound, they also provide you with such capabilities. One in particular you may be interested in comes from a company called TweakBench, called "Peach". In case you don't already see where I'm going with this one, it's a total emulation of the original NES soundcard. Yes, you can take your midi tune that you create and give it all that 8-bit glory. I've made several tracks using it and it's one of my main arsenal when I'm looking for that old sound. In fact, Tweakbench has a great selection of FREE VST plugins that are great for working with most DAW's, including FL, most of which have a great vintage or analog sound. All of them are available via their website, just google "tweakbench" and enjoy.
