Omnisphere

It's finally here, it's installed (All 6 dual layer DVDs of it), and I've done some playing with it.

There are no words to describe how unbelievably awesome it is. Worth every penny. And I haven't even scratched the surface yet.

"Ahhh, should be able to finish this project off today."

Spend the day polishing the mix. Spend about an hour or two mastering. Export. Import to iTunes library.

"Mmm, nice bass, nice tone. Oooh, let's crosscheck with headphones."

Plug headphones in. Hit play.

Actually the people that always end up doing it are older men in their 50s that didn't transition when they were younger. Some have families. Some are divorced. Some are kids that came to the conclusion at a much younger age. Some trans have supporting family while others are ostracized by their surroundings. Some don't speak an ounce of english but still find the resources they need. I read a statistic recently that said "around 90% of transexuals are impoverished and homeless. I'm not sure if that's just Oakland or what. EVERY trans individual has a unique experience and seeing as how you've probably never been to a trans support group I'll ask you never to make such a stupid ass uninformed statement again. Curious, how many transexuals do you know? Two?

me and echoz?

I went to a support group recently and was shocked at how sad depressed and miserable everyone was. They were all older male to female trans; as I said, in their mid fifties. You can't, nor should you live with repressed emotions like that. The few trans individuals I've met that were my own age were way different. They happened to be incredibly happy and proud of their lives and their decisions. It was echoz that said to me a while back "I didn't want to be transitioning in my mid 50s/ later in life." After seeing first hand what that looks like, I realized that I'm not going to keep my feelings to myself anymore. I'm never happier than when I get the chance to be myself.

Doing it as a joke? That's one way of saying I was feeling a little insecure. I might have been parading it as a joke but don't you dare assume that all trans individuals are like me. Most are sad. I'm incredibly happy about being trans. I only wish others have had as "positive" of an experience as I've had. Let it be known, it's only been positive these last few years. I fucking hated myself growing up.

A staggering 41 percent of transgender people in the United States have attempted to commit suicide

That's 2 in 5 people.

I think it's safe to assume that a significant amount of people who tend to "jokingly" cross-dress and whatnot are trying to make themselves a bit happier while concealing the deep sadness and stress within.

I think the above number would be much lower if there weren't the massive prejudice from everywhere and if governments around the world made no big fuss about providing the right treatment.

We've been over this before, my ONLY problem with transgender and gender changed people is that they have to get an operation done. I think it far over steps the bounds of what a doctor should be able to do on a medical level, and it sure as hell should not be covered publicly (just like abortions shouldnt either and other operations)

another thing i have a problem with is (I forget the stat) but that a significant amount end up going back and getting more operations after changing.

WHAT DID YOU JUST SAY TO ME?! I'LL HAVE YOU KNOW I DON'T READ ARTICLES I STARE THEM DOWN UNTIL THEY TELL ME WHAT I WANT TO KNOW.

In either case I spread this link around everywhere so that all my friends who are having end of the world parties on Friday will know deep down their parties are a lie. IT'S ALL A RUSE TO HOOK UP AND GET WASTED AND NOW THEY KNOW IT!

consequences will be had for actions held that day, for they will not disappear tomorrow >:3!!!!

Go to sleep, then go to school.

I do hope humans don't kill each other just because they believe in the End of the World. In China, you get arrested for spreading such things. Thousands of people have been victim to this.

I can't wait to see human reactions on December 22nd. Those who wasted all their money for the End of the World will probably shit their pants once they realize they're still alive.

I've woken up in a hospital twice. I did NOT want to be there. If it wasn't for modern medicine though there's no doubt in my mind that I'd be dead today. When my brain was swelling after my car accident/during my coma the doctors talked about removing a square chunk of my skull and attaching it to my knee cap to keep the bone alive. They didn't have to do that but they still drilled a few holes into my skull to relieve the swelling.

That was when I was 20. When I was 16 I got assaulted by the captains of my schools track team. I had to get five metal plates put into my face. When I woke up it had been a nine hour surgery and someone had snuck a catheter up my dick >:C

I have a lot of confidence in modern medicine. As violated as it makes me feel to know that I'm paying someone a shit ton of money to dig around inside of me and touch all of my moist cells, it also makes me feel incredibly secure about myself knowing that these same people are there to help save my life.

btw, that car accident was kind of an attempt at suicide. Never really told anyone that.

Well shit. As I recall from a comment on Facebook there was someone else with you in that car.

Walker, best friend of mine since 1st grade. Hence why I've never told any one that. He used to tell me to drive fast every where we went. He'd say "I don't want to wait around, make it quick." I was really depressed that year. While I certainly didn't want to kill my friend I was sure as hell ready and willing to die young. I drove recklessly that night because I just didn't care anymore. I told myself that if I died then great. I figured it's what I ultimately wanted. We were a reckless duo.

I woke up in the hospital a few weeks after the accident and was horrified by all the stories my friends and family relayed to me. My memory didn't come back at once. Instead it came back slowly. My dad told me that at first, I couldn't even recognize him. I can recall a time when I could form a perfect sentence in my head but when I tried to move my mouth only gibberish would come out. Some friends visited me while I was in the hospital. The next day I thought that had been a dream.

The weirdest story came from my brother Casey. The coma was drug induced and every so often they'd wake me to see if I was coherent. I was strapped into a bed with needles feeding me, a respirator breathing for me and a catheter peeing for me. This was the second time I've ever been in the hospital for something serious and this was the second time someone thought it would be funny to put a catheter up there. They fucking love putting things up your dick.

My brother said that every time they woke me up I would jerk about in my bed trying to get out of my restraints. I would thrash about and look around the room like a wild animal. Then they would put me back into my coma until I could calm down. At one awakening I actually managed to break out of my restraints and I started pulling needles out of my body. The doctor, my dad and my brother had to try to hold me down while the nurse strapped me back in.

I realized that I never want to put my friends or family through something like that ever again. I could have killed my best friend. I could have killed myself. I could talk all day about that fucking car accident. I could tell you about mental/ physical therapy. What it's like to have to relearn how to walk. I could tell you what it feels like to wake up in a hospital a half second after being with your best friend. The only thing I can't tell you is what it's like to actually be in a car accident. I can't honestly remember it.

I guess fate decided that you still had more to your life than you knew yourself at that moment. If it weren't for that, I wouldn't have been able to meet you this past summer.

We were like long lost best friends, and I bet the next day we meet each other again it'll be the same.

I remember when I was at your stage of depression. It was absolutely horrible. I hated everyone and I hated myself and all I wanted to happen was to be struck down by lighting. (I wanted to die through natural causes, because the only thing that was holding me back was through my music). My music would live forever with my soul but my physical self would be gone.

I am glad that you have recovered from that. I guess newgrounds musicians has a common theme, because as I seem to recall we all had terribly depressive years.

I guess that's why I think of you guys as family. <3

Please don't ever disappear. (that means everyone who I currently talk to here). If you guys just left, I'd probably be lost again. No one to talk to, no one to share my music to that cares.

That's the main reason why I avoid posting about negative things in my life in the forums. We all have hard times/ experiences and I'd rather us all be happy.

I call dibs on being the cool but somewhat eccentric uncle.

In all seriousness, @Quarl/Sequenced, glad you two are both over from those issues. Depression's a nasty thing. I actually used to be a bit depressed when I was like 12 - 14 (no suicidal thoughts or anything, just being depressed for literally no reason at all... I guess that's puberty for you) so I can perhaps begin to relate. Making music was probably one of the only things that kept me sane, even if at the time I was absolutely crap at it.

Having said that, allow this adorable gif to lighten the mood.
