  1. Nintendo Lo-Fi/Chillhop Collection

    Haven't worked on anything yet, but I can start up a project this weekend. Still tossing around whether to tackle Gnat Attack or the BGM 2 music.
  2. Too many projects in general

    Definitely feel this thread on an intimate level. Have somewhere close to a dozen projects being cycled through on a weekly basis, and have only, maybe, completed one full track in that span. For me, taking a step away from a track and listening to other music and looking through online tutorials helps me approach my track with an extra level of inspiration. For instance: there's a Star Fox remix I've been working on for awhile. When I hit a massive creative block spanning a couple months, listening to some of DDRKirby's remixes and the Network Transmission soundtrack inspired me to completely upend the tea table on my project, start from scratch, and pump out a more polished composition. Taking a step away and finding creative sparks through other music and resources may help you with your own work. Mazedude's advice is also golden. In my own recent work those early 6am-7am hours have been some of the best times to push through a creative block and come up with some interesting compositional pieces.
  3. Nintendo Lo-Fi/Chillhop Collection

    Might be down for this. Chillhop is a style I’m trying to transition into, and this might be a good opportunity for some practice. A Mario Paint mix sounds kind of appealing.
  4. As promised, have an update (really an overhaul) on my Macbeth track. I'll try to get something going for the Boss B track some time soon.
  5. PRC364 - The 14th Anniversary (Free Round)

    Low-key been eyeing this round for awhile. Managed to get something out; not as fleshed out as I hoped, but still enough to submit.
  6. PRC363 - Trading Battle Cards (Pokemon Trading Card Game)

    Blegh. Didn't get my bonus mix in due to Christmas party plans throughout the past week and a half. Listened to all the entries: you all did a great job with the tracks.
  7. Awesome job with this mix! Taking such a short track and extending it out to the 5 minute mark without the track becoming overly redundant is impressive. There isn't much I can give in the way of feedback except to say that the resonance of glass synth that drops in around the 5:05 feels rather high. Good luck with the judges panel. Look forward to seeing this on the homepage sometime in the near future.
  8. Excited to see this album released! From the tracks I've listened to so far, everyone has done a great job with one of the best RPG soundtracks of all time. Major kudos to everyone. Look forward to streaming the rest of the album.
  9. No confirmation email for ThaSauce

    Ran into this issue as well trying to create a new account after locking myself out of my old one. Not sure what is going on.
  10. PRC363 - Trading Battle Cards (Pokemon Trading Card Game)

    Looking forward to hearing what people come up with! I’ll go ahead and begin working on my bonus mix.
  11. EDM kicks

    Welcome! Even though it is technically an 80's drum pack, I've gotten a lot of mileage out of DataDrive's 80s Retro Futuristic Drum Pack. Some really great kick sounds in that pack: https://soundpacks.com/free-sound-packs/80s-retro-futuristic-drum-pack/
  12. PRC361 - It's A Me To End This Game (Mario Bros 2)

    Sorry I was not able to vote. Still locked out of my ThaSauce account, and I have no way of resetting my email since it's set to an old account I no longer have access to. Blegh. Sytrus and 3xOSC can take you a long way. Granted, I also use Serum, but those two synths alone are probably the majority of what I use. Once you get the hang of them you'll be golden. Look up some tutorials from DDRKirby(ISQ) on YouTube if you want to discover how versatile 3xOSC can be,
  13. PRC361 - It's A Me To End This Game (Mario Bros 2)

    Realized after export that the resonance on one of my leads was way too high. Not going to have a chance to fix it before the deadline. Also, I cannot log into ThaSauce, and password reset is not sending me any emails, so I sent my file directly to you, Bundeslang.
  14. Ozone 8

    Splice is now offering Ozone 8 as part of their rent-to-own package — I guess their experiment with Serum was successful? For a relative newbie, is Ozone a good investment versus sticking with the stock parametric EQ plug-ins that come with FL Studio?
