  1. Have fun guys! I really wish I could be there!
  2. Well, I most probably won't be able to make it this year. My budget is getting way too tight, with finishing university and all that. I'll do my best to be there next year!
  3. Hey all! I just participated in an online game jam organized by PewDiePie, over at Game Jolt! I made a game along with my team in 72 hours for this contest, and people get to vote for the winners until Dec.1 12:00AM EST. You can play the game in your browser over here: http://jams.gamejolt.io/indiesvspewdiepie/games/blast-cadets/39857 Please lend us a hand if you have a few minutes to spare, and vote by rating the game with a score of 5! The top 10 games with the highest scores will be showcased by PewDiePie in a video, so that's AMAZING advertising broadcasted to millions of people! I already owe a lot to OCR, but I'd really appreciate the help! Thanks in advance!
  4. Thanks Mirby!! I'm glad you're enjoying it! You can toggle Off-TV by pressing minus (-) on the GamePad. You can also switch to any other supported controller by pressing minus (-) on the P1 connected controller (this enlarges the map on the GamePad so you can still use it by putting it next to the TV if you want to ). I know we should have made this feature much more obvious somehow, it was a mistake. I'll post this tip to the Miiverse sometime soon. Thanks for the feedback!
  5. Download the album: http://ocremix.org/info/Shuttle_Rush:_Shuttle_Remix Torrent the album: http://bt.ocremix.org/torrents/Shuttle_Rush_-_Shuttle_Remix.torrent Preview the game: Shuttle Rush on the Wii U eShop: http://www.nintendo.com/games/detail/bG7odFQcB9Q_LarWOcngO-WfapS6ohQl More on Shuttle Rush: http://www.takusanworks.com/shuttle-rush
  6. Hey everyone! So my first game, Shuttle Rush, is now out on the Wii U eShop in North America, the soundtrack is up on OCRecords, and a ReMix album is available over here! I just wanted to let you guys know how grateful I am for this community. I don't think I'd have achieved any of these releases without OCR. You guys helped me grow not only as a musician, but also as a person. The passion that I found here gave me perseverance and inspired me to always do my best in everything that I do. I know I'm not very active over here, but I want you to know that I'm very attached to this community, and that I very proudly represent OCReMix in my everyday life whenever I get the chance. So, bottom line is: THANK YOU! To everyone here! Love y'all! Long live OCR!
  7. Hah! I'm generally not that much of a rap fan, but I love this! Great job guys!
  8. Awwwwwwwwwwwwwww yissssssssssssssss! I can't 100% confirm I'll be able to make it, but I'm most certainly going to try.
  9. Honestly, I think that this on its own would be enough to convince me to get one, if it really works. Because how the hell. O__O (Everything else sounds nice too.) I fully endorse this product. I don't see any good reason not to.
  10. I very much agree! I think FFT's soundtrack in general is absolutely incredible, and packed with emotions. Also, to add a bit of variety to the thread, I think The Lost Vikings' soundtrack is very expressive in its own way http://youtu.be/gqHo4aZv9yg http://youtu.be/qjUPGEQIIfQ (dat guitar solo)

    Happy game music

    http://www.listenonrepeat.com/watch/?v=8lJkVoeepuE Well, it's not video game music and it's not fast-paced, but it's the first thing that came to mind. I hope you don't mind! Plus, it's on repeat! EDIT: Also this
  12. That's a very interesting topic. I, for one, have always restrained as much as I could from using loops. Even loops that I've previously made for other tracks of mine. I think it removes value from the new track that's being made. This is all very subjective of course though, no definite lines can be drawn here. My point is that even if nobody notices it in the end result, I can't help but believe that using loops either profusely or as the main interest of the final track is, to some extent, a lazy and uncreative approach. I believe that, when composing original music, it is important to create everything that's in the track in a custom-made manner. This is just my opinion though, and I understand and respect the other points of view that have been shared here.
  13. When I could still run I did my weekly 7km run using mainly the tracks from .Nothing like Sonic Adventure music to pump me up.
  14. Great judging, nice birthday, and overall pretty awesome! YES
  15. First of all, zircon's post pretty much nails it As for scripting, it all depends on the development team you're working with and on each specific project's needs, but I'd say that implementing game-specific audio behaviour should mainly stay in the programmers' hands. It can be as simple as a single "Play" call (like triggering an SFX), and it can be as complex as a whole code file (dynamic music that evolves along with the gameplay, for example). You can learn how to code if you like, no one's gonna stop you but I don't think that it's that useful for someone who's mainly into composing. If you do want to learn it though just let me know and I'll see if I can help you with that. I'm told audio programmers are in high demand in the game industry, but if you're not already a programmer then getting ready for such a job is definitely a few years of learning and practice, unfortunately. That being said, I think that you can probably find some work as a freelance composer mainly with indies, but the problems in this case are that indies tend to have little budget, and finding a team in need of a composer/soundtrack is difficult. If you can't manage to find a stable job as a sound designer for an established game company though, I think composing for indies is your best bet. Spread the word, make sure people know that you want to make game music, and opportunities might just show up
  16. How about something related to "road" and/or stars? Because you know, Star Road Road Trip (to the Stars) Show on the Road Chillin with the Stars I dunno, just thinking out loud. My own sig is what made me think about it hahaha xD
  17. Happy birthday man Want some fries? ;D
  18. If everyone's fine with this I'd like to change my claim to Fusion Dragon instead then. Sorry for the trouble. Depending on how the project goes I might also do Link Battle, but let's start with just one. xD
  19. Happy birthday man I'm glad we could meet (even briefly) at MAG Have a good one!
  20. Haha! :D thanks man, you never miss it! :)

  21. You terribly don't know what you're talking about. Don't you know that A LOT of musicians (or people that would like to be musicians) can't do music for a living because they couldn't even fucking eat if they tried to? When someone offers your band of three people 100$ for a full show in their stupid bar (and he thinks he's being generous), you can't say no if that's the best you can get, and you can only hope that the tiny "exposure" that you got there will get you something better. Think for a second before you tell everyone that they're wrong. It's not that simple.
  22. Haha awesome cakes! Thanks guys, I love you all! :'D Also happy birthday shaggy dude!
  23. You're deliberately trolling here. Keep ignoring all the points everyone have been making, I'm sure it's the best way to bring this discussion further.
