  1. First, thanks to everyone for all their feedback. You all make legitimate points. I don't want to give people the impression that I plan on using generators for my whole life - or even for a large part of it. I'm still spending a lot of time researching chord progressions and harmony. Generators are just, for the moment, a way to let me make some music on the fly without spending too long on the progressions (for me, composing a melody is far more fun).
  2. So recently, as I've been delving more into the depths of music theory, I've been trying to study chord progressions and how chords relate to each other. However, even with the theory behind me, I've still been having trouble making the progressions themselves, so I've been using the progression generator here: http://www.guitarknowledgenet.com/progression_builder.php I know that a lot of people frown on using generators like this, but I'd still like to hear your thoughts on whether or not people should use them, and if they should, then how far does that go? Past the amateur level? Is it okay to use them professionally? Thanks.
  3. Yeah, that's probably my fault. I tend to mix pretty loud, especially on the lower frequencies. I might go back and tweak it on Friday.
  4. http://djgram.bandcamp.com/track/future-onslaught-six-remixed-by-dj-gram Ta-Da! If you don't get any audio, then it's still processing - try later. Should be done by now, though. And I'm assuming the title of the track is "Future" - that's what all the multi-tracks were labled with.
  5. I've got a first (and most likely final) draft. How should I put it up? I can put it on my bandcamp, if you'd like.
  6. Bump, plus: More tracks uploaded at http://djgram.bandcamp.com/album/scraps: Liquid Methane, a dnb styled track, a minimalist ambient track, "lolwut," a chill-out track, and Progressions, my first trance attempt. I'd especially like some advice on mixing/mastering Progressions.
  7. I'd like to get my hands on Guitar Rig 3, if that's cool. It's not like I'll be using it professionally or anything, but It'd be a great substitute for my crappy effects pedal. Does it come as a VST?
  8. So I'm guessing by your usage of the word "leaked" that looking for and providing links to such examples is illegal.
  9. To the people out there who remix commercial pieces and use samples - especially vocal samples - where do you get them? There's a massive dearth of remixes on YouTube that have completely redone instrumentation with only the barest melodies and the vocals kept in. So how do you guys get the vocal tracks? I know you can attempt to isolate them through some EQ mastering, but that can only get you so far. Is there a centralized source for these? Or do you just have to search online and hope you get lucky?
  10. Damn good music. I haven't ever been a huge chiptune fan, but this... this might just convert me.
  11. This is a house piece I've been working on the past couple of days. It's still nowhere near done, but I'd like some critique on both if the composition is sound and on production. Thanks. http://djgram.bandcamp.com/track/open-house-v-1 And I know the intro's long; it goes to about 1:20 before the bass comes in. I'm probably going to keep that in, though. My idea would be to compose something that would see some club play (hence the lengthy drum intro), and while this probably won't, I'd like to start aiming towards that now.
  12. Revolution and Everlast are both up for free downloads, but In the Dark isn't yet. By the way, Revolution was badass, fantastic job.
  13. No one song in particular, I was just wondering if you had the lyrics written down anywhere (or if you just memorized them).
  14. I just finished listening to this, and I've gotta say congrats. Even though I'm not a huge hip-hop fan, I love what you've done here. Is there any chance of getting the lyrics?
  15. I've been following this game since it entered it's most recent form, and I would be very excited for it - if I could run it. I'm a little worried about AI, though. I was watching some demo videos, and I saw some enemies just stand there while they were getting shot at. What's even worse is that it was supposed to be the final build of the game.
  16. As with a lot of the people on here, the well in LoZ: OoT freaked me out. Another game that freaked me out was Glover, a more obscure N64 title that had a horror level, with Frankenstein as a boss. The main hub world also came on with this really lame laugh everytime you entered it that scared the %&$! out of me as a kid. Lastly, in Banjo-Kazooie, one Jiggy that had you escaping a pyramid in Gobi's Desert gave me a nightmare as a little kid. Very odd. Coincidentally, the nightmare was actually a sweet dream right until the end.
  17. I'd be glad to give out passes for The Ship and TF2.
  18. I have, but you already have it in your sig. No one else needs to hear/read it several times. No offense to Dream Theater, John Petrucci is insane.
  19. The oldest system I have is the N64, and I prefer to emulate that anyways, considering I can barely get it to run.
  20. Even better... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IbdVvH_0rCs Rick Wakeman is a god among men.
  21. Theory includes sweep picking, which is mainly what this is. And the reverse of your point is true: all the soul in the world is useless if you don't know how to use it.
