  1. Facebook Use and Self-Esteem Questionnaire

    I, too, have completed this thing.
  2. Xenon Odyssey - Fountainhead

    My debut album: a love letter to the Nintendo Entertainment System soundtracks of old! Features every expansion chip used during the system's lifespan (save for the Sunsoft 5B, however). Yes, I did release this a while ago; however, due to some mishaps with the album art, it's finally being promoted for mass consumption! Get it while it's lukewarm!
  3. Musical Inspiration?

    Anything and everything. Pretty vague, yeah? Well, it could come from an lick I hear on the radio, or from an idea I stumble upon while doing something like taking out the trash. I could be at work and have to keep an idea in my head long enough to locate a piece of cardboard/paper/something to write on to assist me in transporting the idea to a location where I can flesh it out into something tangible. I could be inspired by listening to the latest release from any profilic artist, mainstream or underground, or simply from playing some video games, from the past to the present. Inspiration can strike at any moment, and it's up to you to be able to capture those moments via paper, recorder, or some other medium so you may be able to flesh out those ideas into pieces that inspire other people. In a perfect world, obviously, inspiration would strike when it is most convenient. However, we don't live in a perfect world, and therefore, we must handle our inspiration the best we can, even if that means sacrificing an idea or two in order to live our lives. But in my experience, enjoying life is what spurs my creativity. And sadly, that's advice I need to follow myself.
  4. New Year's Resolutions Thread 2012 Edition

    -still have time, and at least it's all written at this point! -retail is shit -I guess? I was good for a while I seem to recall...not so much recently
  5. Drinkify

    So over in the music section of reddit, someone posted a link to a website called Drinkify. You put in an artist, and it'll match them with a drink to enjoy. Thus: The Zircon 1 oz. Vodka 1 oz. Rose's lime juice 10 oz. Club-Mate Combine in highball glass and serve. Garnish with fresh berries. The halc 12 oz. Whiskey Serve neat. The PROTODOME 1 oz. Bacardi Rum 1 oz. Coco López 4 oz. Lime juice Combine in highball glass and serve. Garnish with pickled carrot sticks. The djpretzel 8 oz. Fucking Rum Serve neat. The Xenon Odyssey 4 oz. Fernet Serve neat. Garnish with wedge of pineapple. I had to look up what fernet even was... The site's acting kind of wonky since it hit the front page of reddit, but oh wellz. Also, apparently some drinks repeat, so that's unfortunate. Post your favorites!
  6. Crowdfunded Projects! (Kickstarter, Indiegogo, etc.)

    Put down my $150 for a boxed copy yesterday. And as of writing this (5:25 AM EST), they'd exceeded their goal at $127,057!
  7. Looking for lullaby mixes

    I wrote this arrangement of Sonic 2's Race Results as a lullaby of sorts a few years ago:
  8. Thanks for all the comments guys; I'm flattered to say the least. I kind of agree the arrangement goes on for a little bit, but after each section I did, it didn't feel like a good place to end, so...it took a couple of sections to finally get there. The piano at 5:50 is actually me playing, albeit it with a little quantizing. In general, probably an EWI or hooked up to whatever flavor of synth is needed for melodies and harmonies, and a regular ol' synthesizer could be used for chords. The issue would be the arpeggios...either they'd have to be already programmed, or maybe you could attach a synth or pedal to a harp's amplifier, so when a string is plucked, the resulting pitch would also sound. That'd make the arpeggios somewhat plausible to human capabilities, but the more I think about it, the less I think it would work since acoustics don't work like that. I mean, there's always the route of having everything electronic-wise pre-programmed, and then just played alongside the acoustic instruments, .For this particular piece? Ha, who knows; I'd have to go through again and make sure what I did would be physically possible to play. Plus if that opportunity even arose, I'd probably re-write the tune or just write a new one.
  9. Gangnam Style - TROLOLOL 9-bit Remix

    I love how effective the pre-chorus is after everything that happens during the verses. Very nice work here!
  10. http://soundcloud.com/xenon-odyssey/royal-treasure As of today (or yesterday or something), this has been in the queue for one whole year! And that's lame to keep it locked up like that, so here it is! Zelda's Theme, some bastardization of orchestral and chiptunes. Maybe qualifies as 9-bit? Probably not; my productions skills are pretty horrible.
  11. Is it bad I purchased a physical before I listened to the soundtrack?
  12. Chrono Trigger - Wind Scene Orchestra

    Oooooooooooo, right in the feels. This is excellent. I can't say too much about the realism aspect since I have no expertise at that, but I'd say you pulled it off very well. As for the orchestration, I thought the B section was a very nice blend of being piano-driven yet keeping all of the other elements involved without bogging the piece down. Strings sounded great to me, but I haven't delved into the world of orchestra reproduction in a DAW, so take that as you please. My only complaint is it's TOO SHORT; I WANT MOAR!
  13. "Beep Boop" - My first EP released!

    I enjoyed this collections of boops and beeps.
  14. Once I saw they got Mr. Kirkhope on board, my body became so ready. Plus, they are thinking about using Unity, meaning it'd be the closest we get to seeing a Rare game on a Nintendo console in the future.
  15. This was a concern of mine as well, but considering Mr. Inafune has left and the latest was an iOS title...there's a good chance that Capcom probably won't make an MM11.Looking forward to this though! Been wondering what was happening with it.
