This is why he should have done research and made sure they weren't trash lol

Real pros use SkullCandy headphones.

Band

Woop, just recorded our very first song for the very first time! :D
It's a really shitty recording and the intro is out of tune, but still.. it's pretty awesome.
And i'm not allowed to advertise in here so if you want to listen you'll have to search for it yourself >:-(

Reviving The Purpose Of The Ad Thread

So, I've decided to prove all these doomsayers wrong about the Audio Ad thread... I'm setting a goal to review at the very least 1 song a day posted in the Ad thread, regardless of whether I've posted anything or not.

The past couple days I've done 2-4 reviews each day, giving regs priority... The redesign is on it's way, and that no doubt means a stronger Audio Portal... So I'm taking it upon myself to help strengthen the community as well, and remove doubts of peoples efforts being in vain.

Why?
I dunno, I've been feeling generous lately.

Piano!!!!!

It's sad that I can only reach my full potential when I play a song if no one else is home. I even gave my self the shivers.

I used to be the same with the drums (even though the drums aren't as "beautiful" as piano). I really got more into it when no one was home/around. It's mostly why I never really joined a real band (marching band doesn't count) because I was too nervous in front of people.

Just curious, I posted my very first song about 12-15 hours ago. How long does it take for it to get approved on an average day? I know that the mods are very busy and check many songs, I was just curious about a ballpark estimate.


Hey guys, I'm Klokinator. My forum is http://zeldaengine.net and I'm making a Fire Emblem game with RMXP, and I'm admin of that forum, which is for the Project Zelda Engine.

Patience, grasshopper. Some have waited for weeks before they got accepted.

The list is fairly large right now, I'd estimate a wait of between 1-2 weeks... a little less than a week if you're lucky.

Also, please refer to the Awaiting Audio Approval? thread if you are looking for a status update on your submission.

rokits are great, there's a reason why you see them everywhere.

all the audiophile wank in the world hasn't stopped countless hits being produced on them.

we are spoiled for choice. a lot of people spend more time agonizing over which monitors to buy, as opposed to writing music on them. i think it's a case of staving off the inevitable (spending as much time as possible NOT writing music because you're afraid of finding out how bad you really are at it).

what's really funny is that you spend all of this time and money putting together the best possible signal path, so you can hear how crap you are in super high def.

This is exactly why I don't own a fancy set of studio monitors... Because I'm scared of hearing how terrible I really am.

DOS GAMES

Recently, I have been REALLY getting into some old school 1st person shooters... like Doom, Heretic, Hexen, and lesser known ones such as Blood, Dracula, and Albion. Right now, I am mainly focusing on Blood. I completed Heretic, Hexen, and the all three chapters of the first Doom. *I need to get the expansion pack for Hexen to work and I will play that as well*

Anyway, I find these games to be highly amusing. My favorite part about Blood so far is that the game actually gives your character a hilarious personality in a world full of amazing level design and great violent physics.

I have copies of these games if anyone is interested in playing them *For both MAC and PC*

I'll be happy to throw Blood your way to start off. Its fucking GREAT lol. We should totally start talking about these...

I have a pair of Alessandro MS-Pros'. They're made by Grado and they are fucking unreal. Way better than broken-in AKG K701's imo. Even their lower-end headphones like SR80i's are great for their price range, I've got absolutely no idea where your bro is coming from.

Any bozo can call themself an audiophile.

Catacomb Abyss and Wolf 3D are a couple of awesome classics, and basically anything that runs on the Build engine will play similarly.
