I was debating making it obvious or not. It's fun to play video games over a few times and try to level up a better character each time. I think of my alt accounts as different level characters. They're like minions that rank higher and lower. Laqur was mid tier for a while but her inactivity has lost her street cred. Quarl is my o.g. account past his prime but with good war stories about what newgrounds was like back when it had Assasin and Tele-tubby fun land.

Fuck Garageband. That alt never did anything.

Don't listen to Mich and his fancy record players. Garageband is a layabout and a lout. Never did anyone any good. He just sits around on his ass all day staring at the neighbors like some fucking porch monkey.

I've dropped my phone so many times that I begin to wonder how other people manage to damage theirs? Sure, my phone is the "free" phone that comes with a family plan once a year but for all the years I've owned it and all the drops it's seen it's a wonder the thing isn't made from titanium. Seriously though, are expensive phones priced for how nice they look?

Supposedly. Granted though, the vast majority of these have touchscreens, so the largest part of it is a smooth hard panel, often glass or something similarly hard.

Kinda audio coverage related question;

How well tagged is 'cinematic' exactly?
Seeing as i make a score/soundtrack atm and its the best genre to put it under..
However compared to previous uploads that i tagged with like videogame or classical, i get pretty much 0 coverage all of a sudden on this.

How does this thing even work, do people click a genre and then get taken to new music? Did i thus make a mistake tagging it cinematic even though it is the correct tag as its perhaps not a popular tag search?

Was wondering if i should retag it all.

thanks for comments in advance.

I never played pokemon in my life, only had a few cards, always wanted a venussaur cause he was my favorite of the cards, dunno why.. eventually found a little girl in the neighborhood who had it, traded a brand new dark charizard for it, the venussaur card was old and chipped but i didnt care. After that i never bothered with the cards anymore and i think i eventually lost them cause i have no idea where they are now. Besides thats yeeeaaaars ago anyway.

Anyway so back to the start, i never played the videogames ever. They just dont appeal to me. I did play some digimon a little bit but that was boring too, i liked monster rancher and jade cocoon alot tho.. and a few more like it.

I looked up twitchplayspokemon a few days ago myself but didnt understand it at all, all i saw was a chatbox going crazy and nothing else so i left again and cant say im interested.

thanks for comments in advance.

Cinematic was a new genre introduced to fix the whole problem of film-soundtrack-esque music being placed under Classical among the more authentic classical-era-inspired works of music. I'm not quite sure why you're not getting as much exposure in the Cinematic section because I personally haven't noticed much difference in exposure ever since Cinematic came out and I started putting my tracks under that listing.

I don't think the majority of views come from the genre listings honestly, I get a hell of a lot more traffic just putting a link my newspost than I ever did from getting on the first page of any given genre listing.
Hell, I've gotten more from just posting in the audio ad thread.

Maybe if you're just starting out, you'd get more views from the genre listing, but in my experience, once you pass a certain threshold of fans, the vast majority of your views will come from them and you sharing it around than it will from the genre listing, or even the front page (I get more views from my newspost than I do from front page spots, total truth).

If people get offended over a single stranger's opinion of their creative work, it's their own problem. He uploaded it to NG with the understanding that it could get bad reception, so he has no right to be immature about it. Being nice in your review for the sake of niceness has no value to the artist, in fact I would say it has a negative effect.

While that's true, reviews that completely break the work apart can have the effect of the artists giving up before they actually get the chance to develop their skill. It's important to give advice in reviews, rather than just stating what's wrong with it.

I think a healthy structure for critical reviews is: Pointing out what could be improved, and providing tips/howto's from person experience on those particular points, then adding a few parts of it that you did enjoy and thought were good.

You can also start with the good points before going into the criticism and advice, but the important part is that both are included, ensuring the artist doesn't get dispirited by a barrage of negative feedback.

I agree that staying motivated is the creator's own challenge, but as reviewers (who after all did not put in all the hard work), we can contribute a little bit by showing some love, and recognizing the (sometimes well hidden) potential.

More Controllerismz!

So, I've recently undertaken the task for learning to play M4SONIC's "Virus" on my launchpad, I found a single launchpad version of the project file, and holy shit is it ever fun to play.

... Hard as fuck... but fun. I can almost play the entire right hand part, but soon as I try introduce the left hand (Drums, vocals, risers), it all just goes to hell. Syncopated rhythms are a pain in the ass, the right hand rhythm doesn't always match up with the left hand rhythm, and it's throwing me off completely.

You'd think holding a standard 4 to the floor drum pattern would be simple.

For reference sake, this is the original song, and this is where I found the solo launchpad version.

That's a great question, Calamaistr. I shared one of my most recent tracks with that tag, and have just come to the conclusion that cinematic, well at least these days isn't (and thus shouldn't) really 100% associated with just orchestral performances. Like the evolution of [video] game music, cinematic music has become very broad in scope, though in the end it's how the genre of music (rock, classical, pop, hip-hop, etc.) is implemented/created that breathes life into the movie (or game).

Yes, cinema and game music today are practically hand in hand in going beyond sounding like just Bach or Super Mario Bros. Overall, it's good that Newgrounds offers many genre tags for our music to fall into, though ones like cinematic and video game are virtually the same (it's simply just how the listener would interpret how your song would fit one of these tags that makes all the difference.).

Sorry for the double post but I got a quick question for those who took formal education for music technology or it's equivalent:

What do you learn, and is it worth getting a diploma for it?
