NG is the worst place to post music. It used to be great..

I might check your song later, I'm currently listening somethibg else. I just make music everyday, it's more entertaining and productive than anime and games. I've lately been too much into the break/gabber jungle formula, so I haven't enjoyed the end results. I also record live shit daily, I need to develop a better flow for hardcore tho as it's something I'm once again into.

I also play a lot live gigs, next week I have an old school hard/acidcore live set at bun.ka.

Live gigs? Nice dude! Where can I hear some of your music? Sounds like some good stuff, I wanna check it out. :3

And yeah, Newgrounds dipped after 2008. I wasn't around at the time, but I do know when it kinda tanked. The bbs is so slow and the community has turned boring. Maybe it'll spark up again, I dunno. However, I still get good feedback and that's all I'm looking for. Besides, I don't know any other place to post my music. Any recommendations?

I haven't found a good place yet. :( idmforums.com is the most active music forum I know, it could help you a lot if you want to get better.

I dumb my shit on soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/satanoids

Yeah, the community is horrible now, I liked the stuff around 2002 with only vulgar stuff, Tom used to be a rebel too. The site used to have break samples looping on all the pages.

Psytrance for me is a weird bag. Producing it seemed easy at first, but then I realized that after the standard kick and bass, it gets really hard to compose. I've been listening to a lot of psytrance to get ideas, but before I do anything I'm going to wait until Christmas so I can buy a bunch of plugins with my money.

I've been thinking about mixing the synthesis of psytrance with the beautiful melodic organic feeling of Celtic music. I have a friend who plays a bunch of Celtic instruments and is really familiar with the whole genre, so I'm going to enlist his help.

When producing any kind of music, the multiband compressor and the parametric equalizer are your best friends. I can make a kick and bass sound perfect in about five minutes and only three channels in the mixer; the instruments sound exactly the same when played individually and together. Also, never forget to use ghost kicks and sidechains.

I should probably learn to use compressors and such, I have next to no idea about it.
I should hopefully be purchasing FL soon, so I can get back on that.

Not gonna lie when I say I torrent my items. Only because we really don't have the money for me to buy those things. If we had the money, I would have bought everything I used rather than cheating the system.

One thing 'm particularly good at is mixing. I don't master a song because I'm really bad at it. However, I can easily make a song sound balanced by just mixing it. When mixing, Fruity Parametric EQ2 and Multiband Compressor is your best friend. When mastering, take good use of the limiter. Set a ceiling for your song so that it doesn't exceed 0db. You wanna keep a good balance. Also avoid clipping. I speak from experience (made this REALLLLLY bad song XD).

Yeah, I've torrented FL like, 6 times in the past haha. If I could afford all of my VSTs I would also buy those.
