  1. Hey guys! pokemoneinstein is correct - Joypad Records is the same service as Loudr. We actually have a new homepage that explains precisely what we do here: http://www.loudr.fm/ But in so many words, we basically take care of making the monetization of cover songs legal for no up-front fees, so you don't have to invest money-not-yet-earned to sell your music. A quick note because I know this is a hot topic: Loudr is intended to be a tool to help artists support their crafts - but we have a deep respect for the VGM-Cover community. There is a certain magic about OCRemix and similar communities that allow artists to create and grow without limit - that is exactly how I got involved with this community. I don't believe that every cover should be sold, and I don't think community of growing video game musicians *at all* would have the spirit that we do if it were 'about the money.' Do what is right for you, and Loudr will help you make sure it's legal. In addition to the covers and such, we are a bit like bandcamp - we sell your digital music (covers or not) on our storefront at a pay-what-you-want scale. We also can do 'inline-bundles' so that customers can quickly discover and grab more content. We also deliver your music to Spotify, iTunes, and Google Play (a la carte) at your request. And if you collaborate - we can pay anyone you want; you don't have to worry about splitting checks or writing 1099s. More info and such: http://www.loudr.fm/features Thanks for the shout out, Mirby.
  2. Mattias (anosou) did some SERIOUS magic on that Lindblum track
  3. Hey all! First of all, I owe a huge debt of gratitude to the OCRemix community for supporting Songs for the Cure in the past. In the past three years I've written checks summating beyond $10,000 for the American Cancer Society. That's pretty awesome. So, uh, THANK YOU! (I really hate cancer, you know). If you don't know, Songs for the Cure is an annual compilation that I organize to help raise funds for the American Cancer Society. It did pretty well on its own, but of course through the Game Music Bundle (1 + 2) we raised a lot more money and got a huge amount of exposure. So, of course, we're doing it all over again - this time with a few changes. We're aiming for a more concise album - we'll no longer have the acoustic vocal tracks if they don't cater to the VG crowd in some way. It's hard to explain, but I think it's safe to say that if you're producing for OCRemix than you've probably got the right idea in mind. Secondly, we're only accepting final track submissions - there isn't enough time in the day for me to spend emailing reminders to everyone. So, read more here: http://www.cancerdrive.org/songs-for-the-cure-12-submissions/ and submit away. We're accepting submissions until JULY 15th 2012 at the end of the day PST (11:59pm, of course). There is a more than large chance that SFTC12 will appear on a future Game Music Bundle, as well - so it's a good chance to get some wider exposure. (: THANKS EVERYONE! Ask me any questions you need to, etc.
  4. I'll be there as well. My personal recommendation (as with a majority of the people Zircon mentioned above) is to get a pass that will allow you to mingle with developers if that's what you're trying to accomplish. But if you are networking with people who are writing music or want to partake in the wealth of knowledge offered in the audio bootcamp, the audio pass (or higher) could be for you.
  5. I know Dyne said he has video of this, I just haven't seen it yet (: (The IGM one)
  6. Anybody got pics of the indie suite once it was packed after Uematsu? It didn't occur to me to photograph the cluster brigade. ... and pics: '>https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10100317306152935.2507663.21423165&type=1&l=0b346cdeb4
  7. This is wrong. It's an EXTENDED special digital edition. It got more.

  13. Behind the Scenes! I've got a whole technical writeup along with sheet music and a practice session with the vocalists on my blog for the track Dies, Nox et Omnia. YOU SHOULD READ IT!
  14. Interesting trivia: Danielle and Ryan (on 2-10 Dies, Nox et Omnia) were engaged to be married but a few days ago! *cheers*
  15. POOLSIDE has an album called 'Children of the Summer' available here: www.poolsidepop.com Josh Whelchel (me) writes music for video games, and you can grab most of them here: http://music.jwmusic.org Finally, a TON of ocremixers contribute to the annual cancer-fighting fundraiser SONGS FOR THE CURE, here: http://music.cancerdrive.org
  16. Exclusive to XBOX on the Consoles - also, who knows if it may be a different version of MC, with scripted adventure or something like that. The port is being developed outside of Mojang so my intuition tells me that changes Notch makes to MC won't just "show up" on the xbox version.
