Hell no.

There go all of the FL Studio project files I made since the beginning of time.

I hate my hard disk.


Unwavering Assault

Updated

New song is out, and those who are following these newsposts should know by now that I don't often make newsposts to announce new songs, so when I do they must be insanely awesome amirite?

Also insanely time-consuming. It has nearly 20 automation clips and nearly 180 patterns.

A New World finished!

I finally submitted another finished song. It's a pretty weird mixture of different styles/moods and I like how it turned out.

Check it out HERE. I'd love a review, too!

Screenshot, yay.

100 Favourites on Legend!

I just hit 100 favourites on my song Legend, and it's the first song of mine to get that many favourites. That's really awesome, thanks a lot to those who have favourited it and/or me as an artist.

I haven't made any new music in a long while, but rest assured that I still really appreciate all the support I've been getting. I'm currently with over 130 people who added me to their favourite artists list, and I'm also very grateful for that. I'm not exactly popular but I never dreamed of getting this many fans!

Of course I would be all the more grateful if I get more fans which is why I'll link to this newspost if you want to check out my stuff, but my point is... thanks a lot everyone :3.

OH AND BY THE WAY lpfann2 finished his first full Flash animation: Super Cow & Captain Walrus, which is also the second Flash animation I ever scored. Please check it out, it came out really nicely ;D.

Back from France

2011-07-14 07:54:16 by Step
Updated

I'm back from that two week holiday to France (to be specific it was a week in France and a week visiting relatives and friends in England). In France we stayed in this old house with a massive view of hills upon hills of forests, and in England we stayed in a cottage in the middle of nowhere with plenty of fields and stuff.

It was great fun overall and I know I've been to England more times than I have fingers but I'll still say that England is really COOL.

(In all senses of the word.)

Anyway, now that I'm back I'll take over Review Request Club updates, work on some music for two games (a big one with the Game Jam Team I'm in, and another big one with BanglaBoy96) and a podcast.

I'll also finish the track I'm making for FatKidWitAJetPak's charity album (which is coming along nicely but I doubt it'll make it in) and I'll continue running the NGADM. We still need a judge and as many backup judges as possible too, so don't forget to ask me if you can judge if you're up for it and you're not interested in taking part.

That's about it. So yeah, welcome back to me :3.


Going to France

2011-06-27 04:37:07 by Step
Updated

I'm making it public that in a few hours I'll be going to France until the 14th of July and an internet connection during my stay is doubtful. So I probably won't be responding to PM's, writing/responding to reviews, forum posting, etc...

See you guys later.

EDIT: I've got an Internet connection now but it's really slow and limited. So I may show up in the forums and stuff occasionally.


FL Studio on Mobile

2011-06-21 09:38:56 by Step

Wow. FL Studio's now on iPhone/iPad/iPod.

Damn that's awesome. It makes me wish I had an iThingy to use it on :(.


Game Jam

Updated

Just making this update to say that I'm a proud member of Team Breakfast, taking part in the Game Jam 5. We're making a flash game out of Around the World in 80 Days, and so far it's coming out wonderfully, thanks to DeadEndWorldStudios's voices, funkycaveman's art/animation, ToastedToastyToast's additional art/programming and hopefully my music.

Already got the menu theme and one of the game's level themes done. Got a lot more work to do though.

That is all.

EDIT (June 18 - 3:31 PM [GMT + 1]): So far so good. Another 2 songs finished and I've got time for one or two more songs before the end of the day too. This Game Jam stuff is FUN.


New MIDI Keyboard

2011-06-13 05:29:39 by Step

My MIDI keyboard (Korg microKEY) just arrived last Friday, and dear God it's amazing. Wonderfully simple, just how I wanted it - 3 octaves, pitch/modulation knob, up/down octave transpose tool (giving me access to the full range of notes) and it even has 2 USB ports at the side in case I'm out of USB ports and want to add more USB devices (which already came in handy because I'm now using one of those ports for my iLok key).

I was planning on getting controllers with it too, but thought against it because the modulation knob does the job fine and I'll usually be automating one parameter at a time anyway. It's really fun to just go to one of your project files, mute the lead instrument and play it with the keyboard instead. It's also fun to doodle melodies with my left hand while browsing the internet with my right hand on the mouse. It's not the first time I absentmindedly let my left hand play random melodies while I'm on the Internet and I suddenly come up with an awesome melody, and I've only had this keyboard for three days.

Best 80 euros I've spent in a long while.
