Breath of the wild. Please don't post spoilers.

 

So I have finally gotten around to playing it. Haven’t done a zelda game since SNES. Really makes me appreciate how far things have come, and also, how much they managed to pack into those old 16 bit games.

 

I REALLY love how breath of the wild takes an ambient and minimalist approach to the music. One of the things that always puts me off, is being hammered by non stop music. This games gets the music right. That and the open world, makes this a winner for me so far. I’ve only just started, on the 2nd area of the game right now.

 

Got the hard cover extended guide, just in case I run into a stumper. So far, only thing I’ve actually looked up are recipes for cooking. I’ll probably stick mostly to using it for items and “what’s this thing?” situations. For once, I actually don’t want to spoil the game. I know you can look that stuff up on line but my eyes enjoy a rest from lit screens. The book is nice old school anyway and looks beautiful.

 

There doesn’t seem to be a ticking clock to save the princess, though they tell you otherwise. I really hope the game isn’t going to punish me for taking my time. There’s a literal shitload of side quests and extras, so, I’m assuming you don’t have to hurry through the story portion of the game. Some one said this was 110 hours to complete but I’m totally not seeing that. I could see this taking years to complete 100% and I am totally fine with that.

 

Peace. :)

Pretty straight forward question. I'm just curious because I post both types and am a little surprised at what gets a good download count sometimes. So, you like it simple or complex? Stuff that keeps changing, grabbing your attention to brain stimulate? Or stuff that's more homogeneous, mellowing you to sleep?

Promised I would make a modular grid to show my rig, for those who are eurorack nerds.

https://www.modulargrid.net/e/racks/view/492202

Sound path is all analog synthesis, with the exception of the reverb units. It's a rather humble setup. I HAD plans on having 2x times this size but after looking at how much money it cost, yeah, that isn't happening. Had to ebay off quite a few of my things to get it up and running. It's ok though, I can do a LOT with this little rig.

 

If anyone else has a MG, share links.

 

Peace :)

It seems people are liking some of my uploads, so I created a bandcamp for the full length tracks. I'll be filling it as I have time. I may also make an album for the more popular loops and shorts. I know a lot of people are doing patrion but I'm not sure I feel comfortable, since I can't really commit to producing a given volume of material each month. I just do what I can as life allows.

 

All my uploads on newgrounds are free ofcourse, to download and share with friends. The bandcamp just makes it possible for people to also download in HD and support the art, if they so wish. The link will appear below featured tracks and on my main page. If anyone wants to use my material in games and such, I'm usually cool with that. Just PM me with a quick description of the project, so I can give the green light to use my works.

 

 

Peace. :)

For the first time that I can remember, something I uploaded here made it to the front page. Small thing I admit but very nice indeed. I thank all those who liked my recent submissions.

So I'm back to posting here again. Maybe I'll put some more effort into it this time. Take it a bit more seriously. I'll post some of my original material. I've got a bunch of covers that I want to post too but I gota edit them first. Way back when I made them, I thought it'd be cool to have a few samples in there but apparently new ground has 0 tolerance for samples. Which is perfectly fine with me actually. I think the whole sample thing is overrated and outdated. I prefer originality my self.

You might see me saying a lot "I will mix this better when I can" or "production isn't quite finished". When I say "mix" I don't mean take samples of other people's music and mix them together nor do I mean make scratch noises on a turntable. No, I mean studio mixing. which is adjusting the relative volume levels of each instrument so they sit well in the tune. the reason I haven't had a chance to mix things better is because my home town kinda got washed away. I lost a bunch of my shit and had to relocate. putting a life back together is a slow process I'm sorry to say :(

Posted a tune. I'll see how well it's received here. If it gets a good response, I'll post more tunes as I have material I deem appropriate.

A good friend of mine turned me on to this site. Said my music would be well received here. So I made an account. Will be uploading music and finishing details of my profile in the near future.
