  1. Funk/Electronic/Pop Jam

    Here's a song I made over the course of maybe a few days or so. It would sound better if Soundcloud didn't suck at over compressing things.
  2. Native Access with Kontakt 5???

    Nope, yeah @Nabeel Ansari I was just being an idiot. Just figured it out. It works just fine. Thanks anyways.
  3. I did a solo electric piano cover of John Coltrane's "Central Park West." Cover: Here's the original:
  4. Native Access with Kontakt 5???

    I am trying to load regular NKI stuff (like MegaBrass) but wouldn't I still need to run that through my DAW with Kontakt? Because the issue is that Kontakt won't let me add files because it doesn't see Native Access. Maybe it's an issue with my DAW. I honestly don't know. It doesn't seem to be an issue between being a regular NKI or library because either way it won't even let me browse for files.
  5. So, I know how it all works and stuff but when I go to Kontakt 5 in my DAW and hit the "Add Library" button to add files to it, a prompt tells me I need to download Native Access, which would be great if I didn't already have Native Access. Kontakt's Factory package thing and Super Audio Cart works just fine and I added them with Native Access. I've tried a few things to make it work, but I just can't figure it out. And the files I'm trying to add are from Impact Soundworks, and are compatible with Kontakt. I'm thinking perhaps it's looking for Native Access in a certain directory and maybe I moved it? But it never worked to begin with so I dunno what the issue is.
  6. Autumn Leaves Solo Electric Piano Cover

    Absolutely, messing up and still going is the true mark of a good musician
  7. Autumn Leaves Solo Electric Piano Cover

    You can tell when I messed up because I sustained absolutely horridly, "Just gonna solo up a bi- WOOPS" *cue piercing sweep of keys*
  8. 3. completed Sonic Mania Intro (Vocal Remix)

    Nice, I thoroughly enjoyed this
  9. I did a cover of the jazz song Autumn Leaves originally written by Joseph Kosma and lyricists Johnny Mercer and Jacques Prevert in 1945 and released in 1946. Cover: Again not sure that I could really find the original but here's some renditions by Chet Baker, Paul Desmond, and another by Nat King Cole
  10. Newbie Needs Feedback

    I agree with the car stereo problem, sometimes I mix things on headphones and it sounds fine and then I go to drive somewhere and say "Hey I'll listen to this just to see what else I can do" and then it's just BASS.
  11. Autumn in New York Solo Electric Piano Cover

    Oh yeah, Sinatra definitely has an incredible arrangement of that song. Regarding the tremolo of the electric piano, I find beauty in it, though I know it's not for everyone. It's an acquired taste I guess
  12. I did a solo electric piano cover of the jazz song "Autumn in New York" originally written by Vernon Duke in 1934. Cover: I couldn't find an original recording (probably because it was in 1934) but here's a couple of renditions by Sinatra and Billie Holiday.
  13. New Hylian Lemon album - Zest Quest

    That electric piano is quite zesty
  14. Working on this for that Christmas album, gotta get this more christmasy. Gonna happen. Not done yet. ReMix: Source:
  15. An OverClocked Christmas Vol. 11 (read first post)

    I haven't been a part of any project before, and I'm gonna have a huge lifestyle change in the fall, but you know what, whatever, I don't care how crammed I'll be, I'm in. I'm willing to challenge myself. I'm thinking of doing Outset Island from Wind Waker in a Christmasey jazz form. I've been contemplating the source and what to do with it for a short while, and now I think I've found the direction.
