The Newbie Introduction Thread: Come on in and say hello!

Recommended Posts

Hello! My name is Kyle; finally making an account after lurking here a while. I am an academic musicologist/librarian type who is interested in communities of vgm music makers like this one & although I don't make music like this (yet?), I'd like to get to know more of y'all and get involved. There's a lot happening here all the time and it is great! Thanks to @BardicKnowledge for unintentionally continuing to remind me to make an account here.

Hey everyone! My name is Peter, but my username is that of my synthwave band, Vercetti Fade. 

I say band, but its just me. Anyway, I've listened to remixes from OC Remix for years, but never thought to actually join the community because of travelling/lack of common sense. Happy to be here!

Hi,

I've been listening to some OCR albums since a long time ago, since Kong in Concert to be more precise. My favorite ones are the three from the Donkey Kong Country saga and Mega Man X series.

This is my first time in the forum and to be honest I just registered to make a request that I really wish could turn into something bigger. I hope everything turns out OK!

So I started back on this website about 10 or so years ago, but was completely oblivious to the "Help and Newbies" tab (I know, so sad.)

But better late than never, right? :D

 

I'm Cupcom5 and have been very interested in music since I was a little girl (I like to thank my dad for that, lol)

 

Anyways, I'm also on Soundcloud, youtube and Newgrounds (As NGKFlower) sharing my works and haven't gotten noticed too much.

 

Nice to meet everyone, even if I am years behind. XD

Hi, everyone! My name is Alex Patrick and I've finally decided to make an account here. I am a fan of video game music and an ex-gamer who can still throw a professional style down-towards HP when i have too. My goal on the site is too share my music with you, and, hopefully, become a well-known person you feel proud to add to your list of Pro-VGM composers! I write, compose, mix, and master all my originals; so, please, feel free to tell me what you think of my compositions. I'm not a professional, but with of 20 years of doing music that is all self-taught, i would like to think my sound quality comes very close to professional. -PatricxMusic

Putting new people on point is not one of my many bad habits on Ocremix, but I do feel a need to address something on this particular new arrival. Today I received a message from this user asking me if I need a composer (???) or know anyone that would be willing to pay $10,000-$30,000 for sound quality alone (!?!?) because they are unable to get a normal job and pay for their mom's health bills. As I have not met or talked to this person before, nor do I think I've posted recently in a conversation shared of interest, I can assume I'm not the only one this person messaged.

With the very out-of-the-blue request and its high intensity of baffling methodology, a red flag of sorts based on experience is going up here. I'm not willing to full out call this person a potential scammer or someone to be suspicious of, but the fact that they are messaging people they don't know like me, ignoring the very clear signs that I'm a composer myself and am not likely to give out super high paying jobs to random strangers for "audio quality alone", giving the old song and dance about being disabled (at least I hope that's what "not being able to work a normal job" means) and having to care for an also disabled mom who can't pay bills, and attaching a photo of what appears to be a professional Asian woman model that I highly doubt is the user him/herself (which is a classic Asian spam/scam thing on social media) all rings out as more than just a quirky newbie or misguided "near-professional". No one who is even close to a professional does these kinds of things.

I withhold more serious judgment and alert for now, but this I felt was just a bit too... questionable to ignore.

that's strange,this very same user I happen to know from youtube. He does make music, and it sounds very decent to me.

I'm not defending anyone, but that's just sounds totally different from what I know about him. I think you might have the wrong person. :/

Either or, this is an introduction forum, I still welcome and say hello to all. :)

 

EDIT: I hope I'm not seeming rude at, but I do know THIS Alex Patrick. he's a nice guy.

Aiming to be more active this time around :)

Hello!

I'm Palas, a composer hailing from Brazil, mostly interested in learning from the experiences you people share here. I've been listening to OCR for the longest time now. And even though I started learning music with the specific intent of making VGM, studying game music and trying my hand at a few remixes, it never occurred to me that I could join these forums. I want to be active and understand VGM better regarding all aspects of its production.

Welcome to the forums Palas (and other recent joiners). I hope you'll find what you're looking for here. Looking forward to hearing your works.

Hey! You and I actually had a sort collaboration many years ago. Probably about 8 years back now. Don't know if you remember.

You remixed a couple of tunes I wrote for an indie video game, and made them a lot better. I learned a lot from studying your remakes of them, but I don't think I ever got the chance to say thanks.

So thanks for that, man.

Hi there :) ...  I think i remember the one you mean, was it "Cool Clash" ? ... That's the only one i can recall, ha.

If it was that one, then you welcome... Although you did all the hard work... Good tunes you came up with :)

I wonder what happened to that game, I never even got a free copy, haha...

That was the one! Thanks. I never got a free copy either.

It didn't do well...I was told they barely made enough sales on it to cover what they paid for music, voice actors, etc. Which wasn't much. After that, Ben left the video game industry as far as I know.

Wow, holy hell, that's low of them. Yeah, I was under the understanding everyone was paid. I did, the voice guys did...like again, not much, but still.

It was a promising-looking game back when, all hand-drawn animation and stuff.

Though now that I learn this, it may have just been karma that it failed to sell.

Ah well, not to worry. :)

I've worked on many projects since & never been paid a penny...

Getting kind of used to it now..Ha!

Once developers/producers ect have what they need from you, they seem to just take It & run..

Anyhow, enough ranting.. :)

How about you, you still making music ?

Sup!

Long time metal musician (and a few other genres) and VGM fan.

I recently started stumbled across OC ReMix and thought it a good way to have some fun in my spare time and develop my creation skills a bit.

Also always looking for new music and exchanging ideas.

Hi all! My name is Eliseo, I'm an aspiring music composer from Argentina. I love videogames and music.

I've heard of this site a long time ago, but I've never actually tried to sign up, because I was a totally noob in music production at that moment. But I'm taking this seriously from now on. I would like to compose and produce for indie games in a future.

I like OCRemix because in other specialized music sites such as KVRAudio there's almost no interest in videogames, so this is some sort of little shelter for us :). I hope to learn new things and have fun here

Sorry for any grammar mistake. English isn't my main language

Greetings,

my name is Phil. I like video game music. Sometimes I find pop culture music that sounds suspiciously similar to the video game music I like. Thus, I started a blog to publish my findings. There are also some high profile games on the list:

Hope to see you soon!
