Hey There,
Its been a while since I have been on NG.

Right now I am in the process of becoming a PC flstudio music teacher,
I have also been working on some new sample tracks sharpening my overall skills and perfecting the use of the basic vsts inside the program.

It is officially summer for me now so I will be spending time learning how to use ableton and cubase and most of all the bass guitar in my freetime.

more to expect from me is that I should have music appearing in a flash game very soon just have to send the songs.

And I also just finished a PC futuristic racing game soundtrack for a video game that a group of college game developers spent a semester creating.

As for personal music projects I will be posting unfinished tracks on newgrounds now seeing that it is my goal to come out with an album by 2010.

My other goal is to find a stepfile artist to step a song of mine for flash flash revolution.

thanx for visiting and feel free to contact me.

p.s. listen to Zero G Lab my new WIP, this is a sample of what I can do in a few hours. I will let you know when I update and finish this track. but for now its cool as it is.

This Month ... and maybe next month ....

Posted by Psy-nigma - December 21st, 2008

These next few weeks I will be doin lots of traveling across the east coast...

Anyhow I figured mine as well make a statement for the New Years Resolution.

This year I plan to finalize my best songs and work on more collab projects. My goal is to work on getting my style more recognizable in my music and to help others learn to develop their own. With all that said I also would really like to publish my first purchasable album before the end of the year.

I already performed my end of the year ritual of remixing in one night, my song "The Beginning".

Take a listen and enjoy!
Have a great Holiday Vacation and New Years!

When school work is in overload.

I would like to thank the Newgrounds community. Lately I have been getting lots of positive feedback about my music and gratitude from my reviews.

I just wanted to say that during this month and january I will be putting up my older music from between 7-4 years ago when I first started. This music predates my knowledge of Fl studio, ableton, reason and cubase. at the time i only knew about Acid, Ejay, MTV music generator, and Audacity. I also will be willing to share some of my music through emails and messenger clients. Today I was looking through my folder of all my tracks finished and unfinished and it was a whopping 2.2 gigs large.

I will also be testing out new vsti's this month. My goal is to re engineer my sound studio on my computer so that all my programs are connected through rewire and the best of all of them are at my disposal for making music. Meaning if you have Vsti's that are awesome let me know.

I will also help other users out in making there sound studios as I work on mine as well.


p.s.=== currently Shattered Flakes is being judged at Overclocked remix. Wish me luck and take a listen. one of my goals in life is to have one track make it to the OC.

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone in the forums and in the reviews for taking the time to give valuable feedback. It really means a lot to me to know that people do like my music and expect to hear more from me and my potential.

If you are interested in learning how to use Fl studio pm me. I have been teaching others on newgrounds and have 4 years experience with the program.

On another note I am always looking to do song projects with anyone and almost any genre of music.

See you around!

Wow I have been on this sight for a long time and have never posted anything except my own music. But tonight I have changed all of that. If it is one thing I've learned no one will listen to the guy if he is only concerned about himself. Starting tonight I will be going through many of the audio submissions on this sight posting constructive criticism and the highlights I enjoyed about all the artists. My goal is to be more known throughout newgrounds and have people return the feedback of what they enjoyed and hated about my music.

I use mainly fl studio these days. although I do plan to learn ableton and reason. I have yet to find myself the patience to learn a new program to its fullest even though I really want to branch out.

I also wanted to post while I am on a tangent here that I don't post my projects on newgrounds only completed or compositions that I want final reviews and thoughts on. My goal is to use the feedback to make either a remix of my own piece or the small adjustments needed. In the same scenario I feel a little degraded when I listen to projects that don't feel finished unless you warn me and want help or feedback.

I also am more then happy to share my music with everyone and let them remix or sample my work as long as I am asked prior. I am even willing to help you out and support you with my 3GB folder of projects I have sitting on my hard drive. I love composing music as a hobby and anytime if you feel the urge to work on a project together let me know.

currently I am working on finishing my 2nd album, assembling my 3rd album, and starting my 4th one.

# title condition music style

1st - Undiscovered Genesis - finished: various genres, earlier music

2nd - Aberrant Twilight - cover art needed and 2 tracks being finished: Mostly IDM and ambient

3rd - Embrionic lapses - tracks still being finalized and song order: Trance, Industrial, IDM

4th - Quadrasector - Few tracks made: IDM

they are all free at this point in time and if your interested in track lists and copies of the cd's let me know and I will get back to you.

I am finally here!
