    Good afternoon! I finished another track this morning! This uses all 8-bit sounds with some reverb effects to help set the mood. I present to you: Persistence is Futile! Thanks for listening!

    Good morning! I finished a new track over the weekend! It's more along the lines of my "Loch SNES Monster" album, so it sounds a little more familiar, but I'm very happy with it! Enjoy!

    Thank you! I've been doing this for a little over 2 years now. Started off solely 8-bit, then tried incorporating more modern effects/sounds into each track. Glad you enjoy it!

    Happy Halloween! I shared this next track on a live stream over the weekend and got a lot of good feedback on it. It's spooky, it fits the theme of what this particular holiday is all about, and I hope you'll enjoy it, too!

    Good morning, everyone! I know it's been a while once again, but I've been busy with music. As some of you know, I've been working pretty diligently on "The Forgotten Legend", a self-started project for an RPG soundtrack. The goal of this album was to incorporate bits of the main theme into as many tracks as I could without it feeling forced. This is the final boss fight for the project: The title speaks for itself. I really poured my soul into this one, more than I've ever felt before. I know it's a bit longer than most of my work, but I think it turned out quite well. Any feedback is appreciated. Thank you!

    Good morning! It's been a while once again, but I've been terribly busy between work on music stuffs. I finished another track, though: Singin' in the Meteor Shower! I again returned to my comfort zone with this one, but I like it. It was featured on live stream over the weekend, and people, including the composer reviewing our tracks, really enjoyed it!

    Good morning and Happy Friday! It's been a while since I uploaded a track, so here you go! This is a somewhat experimental track for me, but is still part of my "The Forgotten Legend" project. I added some vocals and still wanted to keep somewhat of an old school RPG soundtrack, while incorporating some more realistic drums. I think it turned out pretty good, but I may need to tweak some of the audio in some parts, as I feel certain riffs are overpowering the others. Your feedback is greatly appreciated!

    Some DAW Questions

    Thank you, everyone! I did look a little into Reaper and Cubase over the weekend. Both look pretty cool. I may have to start getting some trial versions going to see what suits my needs!

    Staying Focused (A Video)

    I was going to keep this in my music thread, but wasn't sure if people would realize it was there. I tend to make videos on various subjects as I continue nurturing my hobby. This is one of them: It's all about getting distracted and just some basic things I do to keep focused on my work. Hope you all enjoy!

    Good morning, everyone. I'm thankfully finally feeling better. I did end up working on a short track this weekend. Started it Saturday morning and finished it this morning. It's just over 2 minutes. Here's what I've got thus far. I actually got some tips on using the sidechain effect, and I'm digging what it can do to a track. It's giving the bass in this track that "umph" it needs. Any and all feedback is welcome. This is more within my comfort zone, but I'm okay with that. I was so sick last week that I didn't have the strength to work on any music, so I wanted to start getting my creative juices flowing once more.

    Some DAW Questions

    Hi, everyone! I've been getting over an illness, so I haven't been as active as I'd like to be. However, I'm actually curious to know what kind of DAWs everyone is using? I'm still a hobbyist, and I've been using Rytmik Studio for some time now. It isn't bad for the price, but I'll show you where it gets a little tricky. Each piece of the track I make can have a total of 4 channels, so I can build off of something and make slight variations with a few clicks of a button. The song track itself also only has a total of 4 rows to work with, so this limits my space. Still, all of the audio mastering, sidechaining, etc., can be done within the program before I export a track, and there are quite a few samples, in addition to being able to upload/record my own. Again, it's not bad for the price, but I think it might be limiting what I can do because of how much limited "real estate" I have to work with for each track.
  13. Thank you so much for this!!! Seriously, these are great videos with some really solid advice. I know I'm on a tight budget, especially now that I'm planning a move. The software I bought has cost a total of $40. It has done more than I ever thought capable thus far, but I'm looking to slowly get more samples and whatnot (looking into Splice, per your suggestion a while back!).

    Studio Ghibli-esque animation i'm scoring (WIP)

    This reminds me so much of Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, and that's a very good thing! I really like how the different segments evoke different feelings; adventure, danger, etc. Keep up the excellent work!
