Me introducing myself

Hi guys!

i finally got around to joining OCremix, been wanting to do that for some time now, and finally got the chance.

let me introduce myself
my name is Luuk and i go by the alias of TheMrkuul. i love videgame soundtracks for the feeling of recognition they awake in me. i grew up in the 80's and 90's and saw the rise and fall of a complete videogame era
i have been playing music ever since i was old enough to play a keyboard, my dad was a musician as well, so it started off early
Can you imagine a small kid, five years of age, banging enthousiastically on an organ keyboard? that kid would be me

over the years as i grew up i became more and more developed, learning to read notes and playing them on the fly, i learned to play piano keyboard an organ. i took up several other instruments along the way, i play bass guitar, accordion, percussion (cajon or rockbox) several synths, and i sing. this combined with the power of the almighty atari STe (at that time the most widely used sequencing machine along with Cubase) lead to the skills i now posess. the sequencing software i use are several, i use Fruity, Cubase, Sonar, Acid and sometimes for making samples i use Audacity. i make use of a lot of VST instruments, sometimes i even use circuit bent or modded hardware because VST's cannot always produce the "right" sound.

the equipment i have:
Yamaha Dx7, Korg X5d, Roland ax7, Korg Trinity Rack, Stereo microphone setup for recording, a Cajon, An Aria 120 bass accordion, a fender precision bass, a load of VST instruments (some specifically designed and modded by me) some modded hardware (like a modded NES) for chipsounds. more equipment is added from time to time. (it keeps growing! my house is too small!)

i absolutley love writing arrangements, been in several bands, playing live on stage. right as of now i am working again to get a group together to be on the stage, just for the thrill and the fun of it.

i can't wait for a competition to start! also i am very interested in a collaboration on remixes, sharing creativity with others and learning from it is what music is all about!

i'll post some of my music remixes, which are hosted on soundcloud in the appropriate section later.

for now i say HI to all you musicians here and hope to have a happy, fruitful stay here.
Making music like a sir since 1990

I've know of OCRemix for a while but I had never checked the forums until a couple of days ago...

I am a keyboardist though I don't have a really great keyboard, so my recording possibilities are quite bad sadly. I've been composing for quite a few years and even though I don't know much theory, I think I'm at least a decent composer.

Regarding music, I listen mainly to progressive rock/metal, but I'm open to other styles. And in games, I like almost everything. My faves are Zelda, Final Fantasy, Smash Bros, Banjo Kazooie and more.

Anyway, I hope I can contribute with some arrangements if I figure out how to use some of the softwares recommended here. I noticed there are no Earthbound/Mother 3 remixing projects, which is quite sad...

Hello everyone!

My name is Jordan and I'm a New Yorker. I've been playing (obsessed with) video games for about 20 years now and I've always loved the music. The first game I can remember playing is Metroid II for the Game Boy. Besides video game music, I listen to all kinds of genres, though metal would probably be the go-to for me. I've done some quick and terrible remixes in the past, but now I'm trying to do it right. I'm working on one now and hope to have it up on the WIP board tonight.

I'm Riulyn and I've known about this site for years but never really thought about joining an online community that appreciated videogame music until now. My main connection to videogames at the moment is transcribing their music for piano [I sadly spend more time working on transcriptions than playing videogames]. I would like to submit some remixes at some point but I lack the equipment or the funds to make anything that sounds nice.

I think I'll mostly be lurking and occasionally checking out people's WIPs. I'm pretty obsessive over the Suikoden series so if you make a Suikoden ReMix I'm sure I'll listen to it at least once.

I guess I should write and introduction thingy. Well, there isn't much to say within the context of music. I'm not a composure, singer, or musically inclined at all. Listening to music is fine, I suppose, but I'm also fine with not listening to it. I'm just weird, I suppose. I'm much more artistically gifted in other areas, like painting, drawing, and graphic design.

Aside from that, I'm a nerd. I like anime and manga, video games, comics, reading books, even writing--yes, I write fan fiction. I also play Dungeons & Dragons, both 3.5 and 4e. So, yeah, huge nerdy girl. Mirby told me this place was cool, so I thought I'd check it out and stuff.

Sup people
hot pink and mirby forced me to finally introduce myself (i hate introductions >.<)
Real names karl as a few may guess, other online handles include psychowolf11 and killer2099, real original i know right?

"Psych is a professional rodeo clown. He enjoys daytime soap operas, meeting chickens at the petting zoo, and making fried eggs for all his meals. His favorite game is Sims 2. His favorite TV show is Alf. His favorite movie is Pretty Woman."

I'm pretty much a fanboy of you guys and your remixes, i have zero talent in music, but i do have a deviant art where i upload drawings i do (i'm sure you'l be able to find it if you look hard enough)
I am a total nerd, i like comics, scifi movies and cartoons/anime
and the obvious games

pretty much

Hello, everyone! I'm Matt.

I'm 22, I live in NJ, USA, and I've always loved both gaming and music. I'm a drummer and guitarist, but I have more experience with guitar (I sold my drum kit years ago). Unfortunately, I've been neglecting my guitars for a while now, so I'm a little rusty. I actually started college as a music recording major, but have since decided to switch over to computer science for various reasons.

I recently started composing electronic music with FL studio. It's loads of fun, and it makes me feel a lot more productive than spending ALL of my free time playing video games

I'm also a beginner programmer, who has yet to get his feet wet with anything substantial (aside from basic college class projects). The only language I really feel comfortable using at the moment is Java, but I plan on learning C++ as soon as I'm a bit more experienced. I made a few flash games (using AS3) for school, and I really like the idea of developing games as a hobby, or possibly even a profession. We'll see :D

I'm really excited to be a part of this community, and I know there are tons of extremely talented people here that I can learn a lot from. I look forward to meeting all of you!

Hello, MangaMan here.

Hello! I'm LuigiBlood, 18 years old french guy.

I do ROM Hacking, Music, Videos, and some more.

So I use FL Studio for making music and remixes, and I've did quite some stuff there... Sometimes I do still use Wario Ware DIY for making music.
Almost all my songs/remixes there:

About my other stuff...
Working on BS-X Project, with the goal of making a working Satellaview server. And it partially works now.
I have a YouTube channel, which the nickname is "KiiroBomber" there.

Anyway, hoping I'll get along here. ^^
