#5025772 Sound Programming from Scratch

Posted by on 26 January 2013 - 09:26 AM

But either way, where did these programmers learn all about audio programming?


Did you see my edit to my response? :) If not:



#5025768 Sound Programming from Scratch

Posted by on 26 January 2013 - 09:15 AM

Honestly, I'm not sure which forum this belongs in. My hunch, however, would be the programming forum, as you don't have to be a programmer of code to be able to make music.


As for the main topic, I've fluctuated over what I've wanted to do specifically in music, so I sometimes performed a similar search. Sadly, all results I've found so far are either completely irrelevant, or relate only to programming in general.


UPDATE: just found this article. Not sure yet if it has everything you're looking for, but it's a start, at least.



#5025586 How to choose music and audio software

Posted by on 25 January 2013 - 05:03 PM

Personally, I'd have to agree with the idea that you should focus more on what features your DAW has.


However, I will add this: it is important to note, especially if you're torn between two or more DAW's after doing your homework on them, that you make sure that you want a particular DAW over the others, given how expensive the best ones are. I have made the mistake of impulse buying a few times when it comes to music software and sounds, and I don't want others to make that same mistake.

First of all, thank you for the response. I deeply appreciate it.

Yes, I think it might be a networking issue, in retrospect, though I don't know how I can promote myself any further without risking spamming people. The places I have been most active for the purpose of promoting my work and/or looking for positions are below:

Gamasutra (out of the question; it seems reserved for AAA composers with lots of experience, whereas I've only been paid once. In addition, the only job offer at the moment under audio and music doesn't even relate to audio in general!)
IndieDB (sort of the opposite problem: there are some rare opportunities, but none will pay you unless, in rare cases, you're willing to gamble with royalty-based income)
Unity3D forum (a little better than IndieDB, but not by much; my only paid project was conceived here)
TIGSource forums

Then again, to clarify: when I said I haven't been paid in nearly two years, it's been that long since I started trying to get serious with my music.
