I've been on and off the forum quite a bit, mostly off.

I want to thank the mod team for all of your hard work, mapping in DR has been the next best thing ive actually done with a computer, music being the first :P

 

Im studying music at a "folk highschool" in Karlskoga, music is the one hobby that has actually stuck with me.

 

 

 

here is a "album" ive put together, if ur not a fan of crazy electronic music, skip to the fourth track.

 

 

any musicians out there? share your work/soundclouds

Thanks.

 

I wrote "Funeral Dance", anything by THE MANY is pretty much solely my own music.

 

Everything else on the page is produced / mixed by myself, at Plastik Musik.

I put together an album once. Didn't know about Soundcloud, so I put it up on Last.FM instead.

It's not professionally made. I just sat down with a groovebox and put something together that sounded interesting.

Played a lot of Dwarf Fortress back then.

No, this has been done on a Roland MC505 (named "Suse"). No sampling possible there, it's all done with its synthesizer, arpeggiator, quantizer and sequencer. I think I recorded some of the melodies with the keyboard (and quantizer switched on). When I was done with preparing all my patterns I connected the sound output of Suse to the microphone input of my computer, fired up Audacity and recorded with that while only switching on and off the prepared patterns. To my credit I didn't only switch them on and off at the end of a measure and sometimes more than once per measure. *cough*

That's probably why it sounds so crazy - I mostly first used the arpeggiator to find some rhythm that sounds nice and then quantized to some other measure than used in the arpeggiator.

The only skills employed in the making of that album where probably patience and a sense for harmonics. Although I once played the violin and can find my way around a djembe I have no idea how to play a keyboard or how to operate a physical drum set. Also I have no idea of how to do post production (or whatever it is called), arrangement or any of that stuff.

 

So, basically this is amateurish as it gets, I guess.

      Say, I know it's been a while since the site got overhauled from the crash. But did we ever figure out if/how to get the recent topics & replies list back? It's not a total deal breaker but it was nice for becoming a thread creeper again...

      Some of you who've been on the TDM discord know I was out of work last Winter, just putting in hrs for the developer portfolio. Currently I've been working a seasonal job to pay the bills and now I'm finally in my last week before I get bumped off. Things will be tight but I'm planning a long off period to make as much content as I can. Big plans in Unreal Engine as well as my most ambitious TDM collab yet! Never been so excited to be a stuck at home to pursue my life's work. With a lotta time and maybe some luck, I'm hoping to get enough art work done that I may start applying around to studios.

      I finally got around to play Prey and I truly loved it. It is an incredible homage to System Shock and Deus Ex. While the gameplay is not en par with those two titles, the game makes up for that with its well written lore and story. The whole "world" just feells so authentic and it features a ton of really god environmental story-telling. Recommended for every immersive sim fan, i.e., everyone on this forum.
