I'd do a long lasting tune if I could just find a place to upload it. I don't like googletube when it comes to audio and the fak n ghey comments.

Write down how much money you earn per year or per month, figure out how much taxes you need to pay on that, figure out how much rent / mortgage you're paying a month, how much your utility bill tend to be each month, how much you generally spend on feed and drink, do some basic arithmetic and see what you've got left.

Make adjustments to any variables in here:
Money spent on food:
- Opt for preparing food at home instead of getting take-away
- Don't buy a lot of expensive snacks all the time
- Cut down on alcohol if applicable

Energy bills, be more conscious of energy use in the house:
- Don't leave windows open when heating's on in the room
- Turn lights off as you leave rooms
- Always close the fridge / freezer doors

So basically write things down and use a calculator. If you want fine control, keep track of every transaction you make, and categorize them properly to keep a good eye on how much of your budget you've spent.

ALTERNATIVE: Get a job that pays a proper shitload and don't worry about it

Good grief I've gotten boring

Oh man I remember that one. I don't think that was ever wrapped up and released. Echo and I made a song for that one back when we used to make crappy cheesy techno music. GOOD TIMES.

Still, someone should try doing something like that again...like the NG Audio Project.

It'd be fun.
if it was handled by a good hand

Bought Cubase 7

Shits intense. Probably gonna switch outta FL. Image-line clearly has no intent to fix their horrible video player and syncing issues, nor do they seem to care about people using multi-out VSTs...I can set up 64 tracks of orchestral instruments (all addressed properly and routed to individual mixer tracks) in cubase in literally like a few minutes, versus FL taking me upwards to 45 minutes or so with a lot of tinkering.

Seems like imagelines only goal is live and edm functionality. I spoke with gol their main dev and he pretty much confirmed this. I mean I get it, 95% or something of their customers are using FL for EDM or live shit....so it makes sense to please them first, but regardless they just lost a customer who has made imageline upwards to 40 grand in sales.

Congrats! I would have went with Cubase myself if I wasn't practically handed Logic Pro X. Seems like a perfect fit for the type of work that you do.

I haven't made anything new in 2 years! my 2012 submission was actually a song I made in 2011.

2013 might be my first year without a submission :(

Don't come down this path

It's looking more and more like the path I'm going to be taking. Expenses have driven me into a bit of a financial hole. I'm still making music on my keyboard but without a computer that can handle the work I want to make I'm kind of stuck. Also, location location location. I'm on an island. Just finding people out here that are into anything interesting is impossible. I've been taking long ass drives into NYC as of late just to feel like I'm doing something interesting.

Hmmmm, adult life.

Say @Mich ...I visited your blog earlier, and read a post how you hacked a boombox...
Where'd you learn to do all that?

I'm fascinated...
then again, I am fascinated in music technology, boxing, computer building, programming and some other stuff...
still, I have absolutely no (to very little/basic) knowledge what-so-ever on all of these

As a kid I was interested in electricity/electronics and opening shit up. I followed that up by going into electronics in high school/college. I actually finished a sort of Bachelor degree in Electronics in 2011, but ended up getting a job in web development, which has been my career since. Electronics remains a hobby.

As for web development/coding, that's something I've taught myself throughout my teens, strengthening that skill significantly as I developed theaudioportal.com (now abandoned) from 2009-2011. Since I was going to evening school and still living with my mother, I had all day to work on that and learn. (Yes, I was a "lazy" jobless bum those two years, excepting a one week interim job as a cabler.) I digress.That site has contributed to getting me my 2 webdev jobs, first at a marketing agency and later at Digitally Imported.

If you're interested in something, find out what you can learn about it an apply it in little and bigger projects. It can get you pretty far.

wait... I scammed you out of money somehow? I'm guessing one of the discs was Shock Art. That's four years old by now and most of that music was removed from NGAP... I might re-upload them here next year if I'm still out of a decent computer to compose with. Place holders...

What was the other cd? Was it Syncopation Catharsis or a cheap blank prototype? Regardless, all of the afore mentioned music embarrasses me now. Anything older than two months becomes embarrassing to listen to.

Anyone else get that? I keep a lot of my work up as a reminder of where I've been and what I've done but I never listen to it because I'm afraid to know how much I sucked.
