Hey everyone, my name is Kenny. I am a musician and aspiring producer and also happen to really like VGM. I just found out about this site yesterday with a random Google search but everyone here seems really cool. Hope to here a lot of everyone's music!

Yeah, uh, hi and stuff. As you see by my display name, I'm JK FlipFlop.

Where do I begin?

I'm not gonna get in with my personal business, it's irrelevant. I'll just say that I'm from Philly and I first heard about this site about 12 years ago. Instantly, I loved it. So many cool remixes of my favorite video game themes, especially joints from Mario, Sonic, Megaman and many others. And that list continues to expand ever so rapidly. An amazing website that I'm glad exists. Some people think I'm weird for listening to this music, but I really don't care. It's awesome to me.

And now more about me and what I do: For one, I'm a SEGA Genesis music fanatic and metalhead. I also make music. It's mostly chiptune music, but sometimes I'll make trap instrumentals as well. Not that I like trap, but I try to experiment with various genres.

If anyone wants to hear anything I made, go to Newgrounds and search the audio portal for SEGA Genesis. Most of the results will turn up stuff I made, since all of my chiptunes are SEGA Genesis music. A few original tracks, but mostly covers, including Undertale (I'm a sellout lol).

Well, that's all I got to say for now, but don't be afraid to ask me whatever you want to know.

Guitar? Awesome. If you ever wanna do some death metal type stuff, I can do vocals (and not just cookie monster growls).

And you say you record the best you can. Try plugging your guitar directly in the mic jack of your computer and use a virtual amp effect. It comes out very clean.

Hi! My name is Cassandra, 29 years old, I'm a French composer self produced. I compose instrumental songs with visual kei and chiptune influences, and I use FL Studio since four years. By the way, English isn't my native language, sorry for my grammar mistakes.

Hi, my name is Grinphox and I am a witless traveller looking for a welcoming community of fellow musicians.

 

I dig all noise. That's it from the music I like. Every music genre is cool and good and groovy, that's it.

 

I am a sound design mad scientist, bending and warping the hard way (which is easier for me to comprehend) and making new colours out of boring old flavours.

 

hi

Hello, I'm the Nikanoru, retro gamer extraordinaire. I've been creeping the OC Remix website for a couple of years now, and after I downloaded my 12th remix album, I thought that I had run out of excuses not to say hi.

I am a bit of an audiophile and although I am very musically inclined, I seem to have neither the direction nor the time to pursue music these days, aside from listening to it and dreaming that one day I could play like some of the other artists out there. Speaking of which, I would like to contribute with a few tracks of my own one day - any advice for this noobie composer would be appreciated.

I like any music that invokes thought or feeling, whether it be acoustic, metal, symphonic, ambient, or just plain awesome.

Great to be here! :)

Hi. I've been listening for a few years now. Just got the notion to join.

Where to start....I use FLStudio 12 (Fruity Loops), and, of course, I am a HUGE gamer. For one thing, I just got the original Star Fox for the S.N.E.S., for 15 dollars. It is hard. Very hard. But I can see why everyone was blown away by it at the time. But the lag....

Anyway, who's ready for E3?

'Sup guys!

I like bass, really like slap bass, fretless bass, any kind of bass. Newbie to these forums, but not a newbie to these parts. You'll probably find me in the original works discussion, and hopefully remixing soon! If anyone likes my jams and wants to collab don't be bashful!

Peace.

Hi. I'm 27 years old. Been lurking on this site since early 2013, but I never really had the drive to register up until now.

So yeah, I'm actually not so new here. XD

I don't really feel like disclosing more information about me right now. Or do I? Hey, I like Video Game Music (duh >_>). XD

Hi. I FINALLY found another piano player on here! What franchise do you usually arrange? Mine's Zelda (ask me any song, and I can play it.). Occasionally do some DKC as well...and Star Fox.

I don't have a particular franchise I arrange from, I just arrange songs that I like and that will sound good if arranged on piano. My main franchises I'm currently focusing on are Fantasy Life, Dokapon Kingdom and Super Smash Bros. An unusual choice but their soundtracks are underrated ;)

Hi!

My name is Oliver.  I'm a qualified clarinetist and sound technician from Malaga, Spain. Also, I'm a guy who has the crazy dream of making a living with his passion, ¡Video game music!

I've been making music for video games since 2005 [Portfolio], but not until 2011 when I had the first opportunity to participate in a major project with Dark Ocean. Currently, I'm working on various orders and own projects. Besides I'm working closely with my friends in Tale Studios for the game Breaking Fast.

I am working actively to find my place in the video games world, mainly as a composer, but also as a sound designer. Lately I'm learning a bit of programming. I never miss one of Global Game Jam or Ludum Dare for a couple years now.

I invite you to enter to my recently released web page. Greetings!

Hi everyone! I feel pretty excited of finally joining here, because [boring self-story life] i grew up listening many of the game music remixes made by many users of this forum. i've been composing and remixing since a few years ago, so I wonder why it took me so long to discover the site [/boring self-story life]. I'm 21 years-old, from spain, and hope to be a productive member!

Hello everyone!

I can't figure out why I didn't join actively this community before, so let's do this.
I'm Lord Bif, I'm from Paris, France, I'm 29, and I create VGM covers on YouTube for about 2 years now (the name is Lord Bif Music). At first I basically wanted to learn how to record instruments and produce music and video, and for doing it without more difficulty, I thought I could do covers of VGM, since I'm a player too. That way, and by posting it on YT, I thought it was a good way for having feedback and imrpove myself. 

In the end, I love that, so I still do VGM covers, but with more arrangement, trying to go out of my comfort zone. I work on Cubase, and I play mostly drums, guitar, bass, and some piano and cello (as a newbie). My favorites games those days are Mass Effect series, Dragon Age series, and multiplayers games such as Overwatch, Heroes of the Storm and The Secret World. 

In real life, I'm a web developer and I like many things, but not extremely uncommon. Thanks for reading, and see you on the forums!

Greetings folks!

I'm a composer-wannabe from Norway with a (not so) secret dream of getting into game music. Previously I've mostly focused on writing for pop and rock bands, but recently I've also written live music for a couple of plays. I'm not much of a producer I'm afraid, but I'm planning to do something about that.

Here's a little tune I made yesterday while trying out EastWest ComposerCloud

 

and here's a song by my band (written by me)

What's up, fellow music enthusiasts?

I'm Kyle, and after deciding that math was horrible and dropping from a Mech Engineering degree, I've decided to finally start learning to produce music like I've been telling myself to for like 3 years. 

I LIVE for VGM! A very large part of what draws me to a game is its music, and the music and its usage is usually what keeps me hooked, like in Undertale and any Pokemon or Sonic game (except Sonic Boom, just... no).

I've started learning to use FL Studio for production, and I'm really liking it so far.

I'm mostly interested in making original work, but I'm excited to make remixes and ReMixes for practice and funsies!

My favorite games are Pokemon (main series), Sonic (1, 2, 3K, Adventure 1 & 2, and Generations), Rocket League, and Star Wars KotOR.

I'm super hyped to be here, and I can't wait to be making music and meeting, learning from, and/or working with people in this community!

Hi, music lovers. I'm Devin, and a couple of months ago, I began learning how to produce music with FL Studio. I hope to make VGM remixes on occasion, although most of my focus is on original work. I love Metroid, and Metroid remixes are the reason why I found this site.

Hey, I'm DS (David or Dave), just a casual gamer who knows about way much more games than he actually plays :P I'm a 17-year-old self-taught composer and producer and I like makin' piano covers, epic orchestral mixes, and wub-tastic dubstep remixes. One thing you'll probably find out about me sooner or later is that I'm a huge Star Fox junkie and I've done more remixes and covers of those OSTs than I can bother to think about in one sitting XD I hope to get to know this place a little better, I'll see y'all around.

Hey Dave! I also do piano stuff! I'm mostly a Zelda person though, But I can play a few Star Fox songs, some Banjo-Kazooie/Tooie, and DKC series tracks.

Some songs that I can play are as follows.

Gerudo Valley; Minda's Desperate Hour, Records 1, Select, learning Corneria, Hyrule Field (all versions!)

I use FLS to make stuff.

Do you have a YouTube page? Here's mine-

I haven't uploaded any piano tracks yet....don't really have a proper camera....But I will upload someday!
