I love art and games. When it comes to art i love drawing, but i also love composing and playing several different musical instruments. And im pretty sure there are likeminded people out there in the median community. So here is where you can post your Youtube/Soundcloud/whatever compilation of your original stuff or covers.

If you are a singer , guitarrist , drummer , play the iron triangles , all of the above, it doesnt matter. It also does not matter which genre(s) you play. The only restriction is that you were involved in at least one instrument or the singing. What matters is spreading your accomplishments in the world's universal language : Music.

I'll start with my soundcloud. Some are originals , others are covers, but all of these are played by myself , all instruments , unless i specifically mention otherwise in the specific song's description. I'll play everything from metal , to even classical (theres even a Waltz i composed in my soundcloud). I look forward to hearing to your creations, artists!

Your mixing is really, really good. Like, professional tier. Are you using some digital amp sim + superior drummer? What DAW do you use?

I'm slowly getting into music creation when I get tired of art stuff.

Yea, the higher quality ones were recorded in the music studio which is run by a friend so i get dibs on it usually hrr. Some are meh'ish quality because recorded on my basement *shrug*

I used to use digi amp sims back when i started out (namely, used Voxengo Boogex because it was easier for me to get my head around it, a few Ignite Amp plugins and Vadim Taranov Amp Simulator because VST plugins). I still use Vadim whenever i want 32-bit sound output to emulate almost perfect Marshall , ENGL Invader amps , etc. Its one of my favorites. Nowadays tho i go 90% analog with physical amps (Mesa Boogie is pretty good, for both guitar and bases).

As for drums , no. I specialise in drumming so every drum track is done old school, with a 24 piece drumkit (Pearl basses, a few Paiste cymbals, tho most of the crashes are Zildjian because ....its Zildjian.) Tom and snare mics are a must to get decent sound out of them tho. If drumming isnt your thing then try out ezDrummer, i dont particularly like its layout but its ok enough to start with.

As for DAW, the easiest ones to work with are hands down Podfarm and Audacity. Those ae the ones i used learning how to mix tracks and editing and whatnot. Now i use almost exclusively Steinberg Cubase 8. Its got a huge learning curve but its got a lot of compatibility options (VST plugins , conversion of Guitar Pro MIDIs to .cub , etc) Its got its own digi amp sim embedded on it too but i hardly use that unless i want to be a hipster. Sometimes i use MusE, albeit very seldomly.

Ah, that's why it sounded so good lol. Shoulda realized.

Yeah I dunno, I'm really tempted to eventually get an Axe FX. I've heard of things like BIAS and guitar rig pro being compared to it, but I'm pretty skeptical of that lol. It's just so expensive. :cry:

My soundcloud channel is a bit out dated, I don't really have good gear to record, and I'm nothing special musically. But here's a piece of me (?)

Edit: I really dig your terran theme cover. Bring back so many memories :C

Holy crap dude, you have some serious talent! Your double bass drumming and rolls are top notch! The first two songs were my favorite... "Let Battle Be Joined" had so many different parts to it with guitar soloing throughout (almost like slightly slower Yngwie-style riffs) and the E1M5 Cover (even though I'm not too sure what E1M5 is) had that cool keyboard effect in the intro and into the song.

You're lucky to have access to your friend's studio! I have some original acoustic/electric guitar recordings, but the quality is really awful with talking in the background and other sounds. If I ever get around to rerecording them I'll put them up here. Keep playing man :clap:
