    Mr. Lloyd is the president and founder of OverClocked ReMix, an organization dedicated to the appreciation and preservation of video game music. He has popularized unofficial arrangements of this music by encouraging fans to submit mixes to the website he developed and maintains at http://www.ocremix.org. He has composed and produced numerous such arrangements himself, under the name of "djpretzel", in addition to original compositions available on his personal website at http://www.djpretzel.com. He has appeared alongside industry professionals like Tommy Tallarico and Jack Wall at game music events, and has been interviewed by Salon, Electronic Gaming Monthly, and others for his work with the site. He runs an associated record label, Overclocked Records, to help promote the original and arranged music of artists involved in gaming and computer culture.

    Mr. Lloyd is also an accomplished software engineer with ten years of experience in web-related technologies.

  1. Well, NI support forums PROBABLY gonna be more help... @zircon very busy these days... I'd be tempted to recommend reinstalling Native Access and seeing if that addresses the problem. What lib are you trying to add? Are you sure it's a library? MANY folks get confused on the difference between libraries (encrypted, protected, install via Native Access) and regular old NKI "libraries" that don't have a special process...

  3. @JohnStacy We had a strict band director in high school, but you could ALWAYS, always, always tell that he cared about the music, about the band, about what he was doing, and about what we were all doing. For this role especially, I think, any scent of apathy is absolutely toxic. He'd occasionally provide some background on a given piece, or its composer, but I wish he'd done a little bit more of that, actually... not sure if most students would be interested in that, but I was.
  4. @nicke_w We have removed the mix in question. If you've got anything newer, we'd love to hear it!
  5. @dfcentre Perhaps I can help you: We don't really require passwords - user accounts allow participation on the forums, control of artist profile options, and will eventually be required for submissions, but simply browsing the site and downloading mixes can be done without an account. We DO have an SSL certificate, and we HAVE enabled the option in our forum software so that when you log on, it's via SSL. It redirects back out of SSL after the login has occurred, but the credentials are sent encrypted. See attached screenshot; you can also see this via logging out and back in - the password is posted via HTTPS.

  7. @Liontamer Has a bunch, and we HAVE done outreach to try and get WAV/FLAC from which to re-encode. In addition, when we made the big 2014 torrent update, we upgraded quite a few: http://ocremix.org/info/Torrent_Update_v20141015#Files_with_Increased_Bitrate.2FEncoding_.2851.29 Our plan is to eventually host FLACs, but they may be for registered users only (there'd still be a torrent that was open) & our Patreon backers will get advance access since they're making it possible. First things first, we need to update the site for better mobile/responsive experience, but this IS on the roadmap, for featured mixes!
