hey it's tough economic times these days..

so people have been pressuring me to get back into music.. however my computer corrupted and I had to format it.. losing all my files and software about a year ago.. then my computer blew and doesn't turn on. I am on my old laptop and frankly the thought of reaccumulating 9 years worth of stuff.. well frankly just doesn't appeal to me. Which is shame because I was finally going to tinker with some groundbreaking sound software and hardware but.. eh I dunno. It just feels like a hassle now.

Which brings me to another point.. when is enough enough? Does one just keep making music so that they don't fade into obscurity anymore on here? I used to battle with the concept of whether it is egotistical to simply want people to remember what you have done, and to try to leave some sorta imprint. I have come to the conclusion that I guess it is.

Don't worry chron, you left a mark here on NG that nobody would forget. I'm sure people are okay if you stop writing music for now.

I have tried stopping, it will never work. I simply do it because I enjoy it.

for me it had to happen eventually.. I am almost 30 now and am thinking about settling down, and I've just been really busy with a bunch of things, and slowly getting back into art, or trying to. So yeah.. a lot of my motivation to do what I did on this site was simply.. to not be forgotten. Saw too many comrades drop off the map and noone even remembers who they are anymore. It's tough to watch.

Thanks for the support Sequenced :)

it might have been cheesy but how else am i supposed to put it? it's really hard to not feel this way when practically every moment of my life i am either thinking about music or doing something music related.

or do you not feel like you were born to be a musician? is it just a hobby for you? is your brain switched off about music most of the time?

As cheesy as your earlier statement was, truth be told... yes, I feel like I was born to be a musician.

I feel so lame right now saying that

Don't use Vengeance loops. MANY of them are actually copyrighted.

Looks like all drum samples loops are fine to use, and melodic loops are fine for non-commercial (e.g. Newgrounds) use.

Why would you think that a commercial sample pack would distribute loops you can't even use?

Not all of them are. Some of them fall under duplo.

The following are a list of bannable packs, as per researched extensively by one of the audio moderators.

Reason(s): Constructionkits/DUPLO or atleast 90% built around either.

Future house (all volumes) 1, 2, 3 and 4.
Trance sensation vol.1,2 and 3
Dance explosion
Vengeance Dirty Electro Vol.1
Vengeance Dirty Electro Vol.2
Studio vocals (Recorded by Vengeance)
Total dance sounds vol.2
Ultimate fills vol.1

NG Duplo is not the same as legality. We're far more strict than the actual law/licensing agreements.

Agreed. Tons of pros use Vengeance sound packs for their drums. Many professionally produced tracks also contain samples from other tracks. Music Sounds Better With You by Stardust; its main groove is apparently sampled from another track.

Hell, this track, Sunlight by Modestep includes a break which is a Vengeance loop! I cannot remember which, but I heard this track and thought, "Hey, that's pretty cool!". Then when searching through one of my Vengeance packs weeks later, I found this exact riff.

They obviously did not get in trouble as it is still a released track, but I think using 100% Vengeance pre-made material for a riff is pretty lame...
