  1. Now entering the somewhat worn field of Ocremixers turning into sound design conglomerates is professional aspie Meteo Xavier with a set of 60 Omnisphere multi-instruments ("multis") for $5.00. Taken from my website: Fusion Dance is my first attempt to make a sound set the way I always go to look for sound sets. This is 60 multi-instruments for only $5.00. This is not a “bread and butter” sound set – you already have hundreds if not thousands of “bread and butter” sounds. No, this is for musicians like me who have lots of sounds that are supposed to generally work anywhere and not be too recognizable because many musicians have a hard-on about that kind of thing taking away the mystique or something. Instead, Fusion Dance is inspired by my love of late 90s/early 2000s romplers, particularly the Roland XV 5050 and 5080, which feature stacks of instruments programmed into a single sound that, oftentimes, sounds unlike anything else and those with trained ears can pick them out in a track once they hear it. Fusion Dance is more than just me trying to play Eric Persing, though, many of these sounds are designed to be enormous – in some cases you could make up half the track pressing a single note. I made them bigger than I normally hear and I made them sound like things I don’t normally hear. Fusion Dance is designed to emphasize multiple made-from-scratch presets together to form movement (hence the name) and have all manner of clever and avant-garde design plus a lot of use of the orb, so you have filters, rhythms, panning, timbre and all kinds of things doing more than just staying in one place as you sustain notes and chords. This set was built in Omnisphere 1.5.6 and is confirmed compatible with Omnisphere 2 up to recent versions. Sound Demo https://soundcloud.com/meteox9999/fusion-dance-omnisphere-demo Anyone who may be interested in purchasing it can PM me as I'm just doing a "Paypal me $5.00 and I'll send you the .rar set which is only 10.5MB" for right now until I get it up on more conventional VST store platforms. More information can be found on this post on my website. https://12mxmedia.com/2020/07/30/fusion-dance-by-12mx-media-for-omnisphere-1-5-6/ Thank you and enjoy!
  2. Are there new allegations against Soule? If not, I'm not sure how it's only now come to your attention. The news about Nathalie Lawhead* was back in 2019. * - As far as I know, I'm not related to Nathalie Lawhead. I did email her to ask if she knew any family relationship between us and never got a response.
  3. My AKG K240s cans are soon to wear out after more than a decade of being probably the most important tool to my music development short of FL Studio 11 itself. It will be time between now and 2021 to replace them and I'm wondering what modern cans you folks are using for mixing at the proper (or "flat") signal frequencies and high quality audio playback in this era. Budget could be as high as $300.00. Doesn't HAVE to be a 2020 model of anything, I just want to get something a lot more modern than my previous model was at 12 years old at least. What recs do you folks have?
  4. I agree, it sounds like some kind of fizzy saw or maybe even a wavetable thing that's really high up, doing a simple 1, -5, -12 arp and having some filter modulated on it so that only the first note sounds really "fizzy". I feel like I've heard this sound in z3ta+2 and Synth 1 (though obviously that's not what he used here).
  5. I have to tender my resignation on this project, to no small amount of personal disappointment and chagrin. I wrote it on over to Rexy first and now I'm writing it publicly. The conflict is all on my end - when I first joined up to try to help push this sucker out and today is the difference between World of Balance and World of Ruin, to put it in Final Fantasy VI terms. I wasn't exactly Spring Chicken at that time in terms of vitality and work availability, but I could do it. Then I had a medium-sized relapse into (depression-related) depersonalization in August, then me and my family's world got pretty damn well upended just before Christmas 2019, then we had snow and floods in February just before COVID-19 hit, THEN COVID-19 hit the planet, THEN my dad announced he has throat cancer. Now my Mom just started having an episode of anxiety-related something that is similar to the depersonalization and I have to be helping her with that. Of those items, only the flood and snow has actually cleared up, the rest is still present. As a result, my administrative performance so far has been well below what I would personally find acceptable and it's pretty plain to see that I'm not currently fit to tackle the role. I don't have as much invested in this project as I did SD3 (err, "Trials Of Mana" now, fucking Square-Penis...) so powering through it isn't really justified this time around. Sorry to bring a downer to this album's projection, but I'm at "unarmed Jubei Kibagami in Ninja Scroll" stage on this end. Best of luck, or whatever we have going on for statistical chance in 2020 right now, for following this album forward!
  6. By now, I'm sort of curious to see if my orchestral production skill could pull off my own proper rendering of the original MIDI. I wouldn't submit it here, I'd just do it to see if I could. I don't have any more notes here other than I would hope listeners could hear the Addams Family and Dracula: Dead And Loving It waltzes in this here arrangement. That would be exquisite. Also, related but not totally relevant, I only just yesterday learned that Jimmy Workman, who played Pugsley in the Raul Julia Addams Family movies is Ariel Winter's (ABC's Modern Family) brother. I pride myself on knowing obscure movie connection shit like that and I never knew that. They're actually estranged on family drama, but Ariel Winter had/continues to have a much better relationship with her on-screen asian cousin played by Aubrey Anderson-Emmons, for whom I personally shot photography for as her dad, Kent Emmons, is a client of ours at work (somehow). I had this A-list child actress hold a door open for me while I moved camera stuff. They've both even been to my MOM'S HOUSE from which I was raised from the age of 8. So I got that weird 3-degrees-from-Jeff Lawhead thing going for me there, too. I'm telling you this because I'm old and insane and I want my story told - in tiny fragments spread across vast corners of the internet for future Branch Lawheadians to piece together slowly over the course of 90 years - before I'm dead and reincarnated as someone's nipple polyp.
  7. I've got too much work as it is, but I'm addicted to inquiring further anyway. Any chance you or your composer have any .mid files of these compositions or could rig up the main meat of the non-rhythmic content in the tracks? It would make remixing (for myself and for others) a hell of a lot easier and cut down on time.
  8. Not even close to the best luck ever. I'm not going to go into details, but like everything else in my orbit, it's a lot more complicated, dramatic and pretty much impossible to communicate correctly to others than normal things of its type and trying to elucidate it to others just gives them the wrong idea and impression of what's really going on. For all intents and purposes, it's more like I'm widowed than divorced, except I use Gmail to talk to her instead of a ouija board.
  9. Major clinical depression, insomnia, divorce, dead kid I use for "social currency" whatever that is, misanthrope, vulgarity, projects that just refuse to ever get finished no matter what happens and my dad has cancer. So pretty much the same as it's ever been before COVID-19 except for that last one.
  10. Hi there. For years I have had a small SFC/SNES group called SFCaliber and for years I have wanted to release some SFC/SNES original music under that brand. I think I'm finally in a position to do so, so I'd like to make a call out to any one who has does any original compositions with SFC/SNES instruments to PM me about inclusion into a compilation release. Details: * It's a FREE album, so there is no payment or money exchange of any kind. It's purely for the art and fun of it. I won't be monetizing anything or having ads or backend financing either. For that reason, I am largely asking for tracks anyone has already done and finished so that I'm not asking for free work/effort that hasn't already been done. * Preference towards really "meaty" content - not just 45 second Final Fantasy battle or Super Mario World stage BGM knockoffs. Tracks more than 2:30 in length with some real compositional content and identity is what I'm looking for. They CAN be video-game sounding tracks that loop twice or whatever, but they need to be pretty interesting and long all the same. * Tracks that are 95% or more made up of SNES instruments only, please. Not really interested in hybrids between SNES samples and other chip sounds or commercial samples. Super Audio Cart is fine. * It will be released on my Bandcamp page for free with information specifically crediting each artist for their tracks. I think that's all I have to write on that for now. Please PM me if interested. Thank you!
  11. Hey pisanos. If you ever wanted the guy who was a Sergeant in Vietnam and then a lawyer and THEN scored half of the most memorable and politically incorrect FPS classics of the 90s to teach you how to play a tiny four-string guitar, your wet dream has come true. I'm not personally affiliated with this, I just thought it would be a cool thing to post that no one else was going to post. Going to be this coming Sunday at 3:00PM EST.
  12. I know phat beats, I've heard of phat asses (and FROM them as well, ew), but phat GAMES is a new one on me. What sort of thing is that?
  13. Based on the timeline and the amateurish (though still respectable) production on it - my thoughts are that this is not on an album or by a professional artist (at that time anyway) and that clues for it may be found in any archives for Newgrounds or even http://archive.rpgamer.com/music/archive/ Though I'm already on the RPGamer site and do not find such music present.
  14. For anyone who might be interested, The Blind Prophet has been released for Steam and GOG, and other markets like Switch and PS4 consoles to follow, I think. I did the majority of the soundtrack and the 3rd game I've worked on to actually get released. This is a highly visual and artist-driven project using point'n'click adventuring for a 6-8 hour story that goes into some seriously dark and gritty territory. Although I myself am not fully versed on the story or progression (I wouldn't have had time to get into it over the last year), it combines elements of SIN CITY, Boondock Saints, John Constantine and similar as its modus personae. I combined quite a lot of genre elements for my work on the soundtrack including: * Gothic church organ * Heavy, dark, Motoi Sakuraba-style orchestral * Downtempo Trip-Hop * Minimalist Techno * Resident Evil-style dark ambient * Resident Evil-style minimalist score material with more conventional composition and arrangement. * Chrono Cross-style emotional score for one track. * NIN-style Industrial * A parody of Pink Floyd's "Money" that then turns into a much more subtle parody of Steve Hackett's "The Ballad of The Decomposing Man". * One song from my Saturn Icarus album that was licensed/used as a minigame track because it was fun, unexpected, and I ran out of time to produce a brand new track. :P I don't have the soundtrack compiled together as a release yet, I just want to promote the game itself for now.
