This post is mostly just to update the previous post about whether or not I’m dead. I’m not, just in case you hadn’t figured that out yet. :P


Lots of big things have been happening in my life, mostly good, but some are bad. There’s no telling if my music will fall by the wayside in the near future, but hopefully not, right?


Thanks for listening.

Ha, no. But I'll explain why I've been away for a while.


First of all, I've been heccin' busy... 'nuff said about that.


Second, I've been getting into privacy stuff lately, and it naturally restricts convenience a bit. Newgrounds just isn't quiiite so important, so I visit it less often.


Third, I haven't been able to come up with a song. I'm hitting strange problems that I'm not really sure how to solve.


Still, though, I'm trying to come up with something, so stay tuned.

Ok so there's a program out there that makes the best wavetables I've ever known. It's a downloadable program that makes really ridiculous FM wavetables, and it makes them specifically so that they can be imported into Serum. Here's the link:

http://glowshrimpsoftware.com/sfmwts.html

Once you've downloaded it, set it up, and have made and exported a sound, you can import it into Serum using the "import constant framesize (pitch avg)" option. Sometimes that doesn't work though, so in those situations, you want to open up the oscillator edit menu, type "2048" into the formula parser (without the comma), and then drag the exported sound into the frame (while the oscillator edit menu is still open).

EDIT: Using the formula parser "2048" method also reduces lag, just in case that's something you'd need to know.

EDIT (again): Guess who's an idiot? ME. You can import it by just dragging the file into the box in the bottom-right that says "FFT 2048." *bangs head on wall*

Sounds like a ton of work, but trust me, it REALLY pays off. You want to know where Virtual Riot got his "dying" wavetables in his second preset pack? >:D

Also - this is the important thing - I'm on a trip that's going to last till the end of October, so not a whole lot is going to be happening here on NG for me, sadly. But, I'm obviously not giving up electronic music in the slightest, and I'm sure that I'll be working at 110% capacity as soon as I get access to my home setup, to which a huge Yamaha P60 keyboard was added days before I wasn't going to be able to use it for over a month. :P

Well, I got knocked out of the NGUAC. It's kinda sad, but the silver lining to it is that now I get to make music on my own time, which is a lot faster.

And, making music will be really fun now that I have ABLETON 10 SUIIIIIIIIIIITE!!! >:D

I've been working on trying to make drops, that's all. Plus, a bunch of other stuff has gotten in the way (and will continue to get in the way somewhat).

Also, I've given up on having my personal sample stash here. Nobody really cares, and I always forget to update it, so there. :p

So I've had a bit of an idea recently, and I think that it would be really cool. My thought is that with every song I release, I could put a link in the description to a new sample or Serum preset (or collection of samples & presets) that I made and used in that song. I think it would just be fun to be able to share my sounds.

EDIT: I put "(thoughts?)" in the title to prompt other people to tell me their thoughts. In other words, I'm asking if that would be a good idea, to share sounds and presets that I made and used in songs.

So yeah, I think I'd like to try to do a collab! The thing is that I only have Ableton and Serum. So, if you want to collab, and you use those, then please leave a comment! :D

For those who don't know what I'm talking about with "stage 3," here's the article that I'm referencing. Have you read it? Good.

So yeah, I might just skip stage 3. I don't know exactly how or why, but my best guess is that I'm just doing things well enough - I'm paying attention to details, but not getting caught up in perfectionism (like I thought I would); I'm theorizing about how things work, but not so much that it's distracting me from actually making stuff; and I'm making enough stuff to keep improving at a steady pace.

I just thought I'd spill some of my more current thoughts. :)

Also, I'll keep a list of links to awesome resources at the bottom of each of these post things, so that people who see this post might be able to get more out of it than just my thoughs about stuff.
