Anyone know what his setup is? I.e. Orchestral VSTis?

They sound incredibly real (although several spots sound fabricated) and i'm wondering what he's using.
I know he uses vstis - like garritan viloin, and he might use vienna vst as well.

DavidOrr

Those must either be extremely well-recorded samples or he must be an expert masterer.

The instruments are incredibly rich in sound and have hardly any flaws (that I can tell.)

I wonder if he'd send me a copy of his library..

Yeah.. I'm not dead.

I've just been having interweb issues.

But I hijacked my roommate's comp at the moment. And... I'll be moving at the end of the month.. and sorting it all out then. (So.. somewhere around the end of the month I'll have reliable interwebs again)

Today, I pulled my Audio from Newgrounds. Its all explained in my Blog. I think I have an inkling as to why Wind Waker screwed up, But I'm not entirely sure. Just wanna say sorry to anyone who reviewed or favorited them. I was getting pretty annoyed at the stupid people who didn't realise they could have done like 1 minute of reading, And saved me the hassle of deleting Temple Of Time.

Anyway, Enough ranting. I'm just sorry to anyone who put some time in. The better version of the two, will be on the Site within this month. Sorry again :)

The audio portal has been in need of a face lift and tweak for some time. Hopefully we'll see that change soon, before all of the regulars leave.

i just wanna improve more on my tracks on other music sites, where the site is suppose to be there for music. most people here say, OMG THIS IS AWESOME, and about 30% of the reviewers actually write something. but a lot of people have been getting lazy lately, and busy, so things have just been going down hill.

I realized something that alot of newgrounds audio listeners do. No vocals means lame. I suffer from their irrational reasoning... sorta. Keyword "MOST". Not all.

I say let ratings be done by reviews only, at least for the audio portal. That way, it makes people give their thoughts. Majority of review ratings are insanely higher than score ratings, which makes score underrated and reviews overrated. Better off doing 2 in 1 to balance it out.
JUST A SUGGESTION! If it's not a good idea, then I'm the idiot.

LED Dimming

So today I devised a pretty simple strategy for LED Dimming, using a single transistor per channel.

Here's a link to a video, though since it's on facebook I'm not 100% sure it'll work. But we'll see.

VIDEO TWO

This circuit is pretty badass because it's got a parts cost of a couple bucks per channel, and could hypothetically be scaled pretty big.

loan, you should check out this site.

There's some neato DIY hardware projects ranging from midi-controllers to full blown synthesizers and stuff. They have a helpful community of people over there too. Just thought it may interest you ;)

I'm mainly using Fl Studio 8, and the main synthesizers that I use are PoiZone, Sytrus, EWQl Symphonic Orchestra, Symphonic Choirs, and Edirol Orchestral. I might get some more VSTi's when the time comes that I work on a new genre of music :)

FL Studio 8 is my primary Program too. I occasionally use Audacity just for really minor touch-ups and so on. Its just something I've had for a while, And can't bring myself to let the poor thing go.

Also, I got one of my Submissions back up. Too easy =]

FLS8.

I don't like the poizone or sytrus effects anymore.

I started finding just regular sound files all over the web and found new ways to manipulate their sounds with just a few tweaks and effects.

If I could I would delete the sytrus and PoiZone because I don't use them anymore.

I got tired of trying to get something to sound right in them without losing quality.

In my most recent DnB track it is all samples and no generators. When I first put up the concept version of it (its deleted) someone asked me what generator I was using... I laughed.

Now it is changed quite a bit even now.

My new friend EQUO helped me realize that I can make it quicker with a raw file and a plugin.

We have a lot of the same VSTis.

This is an issue of perception.
Why did Asia ban North American pork products even though there was virtually no threat of swine flu in our pork? It had to do with perception. Asian countries were so paranoid about our little western disease they didn't hesitate to cut off all ties despite of scientific proof.

If you had read MaestroRage's post about how much money he got last year, in the RSS Feed thread a while back, Maestro himself only collected around 100$. And he's a major contributor to a number of major flashes that year.

Would the RSS Feed increase zero bombing? Sure. Did scores matter before? Not really. This is only for the top five.

A lot of artists are simply percieving that "Hmm, Hits = Money = Dedicated Zero Voters". Do you care about the top five? I never did. So RSS Feeds change nothing for me, I don't even plan to use them because the pay off is miniscule even for the most successful.

Wow, I'm gone for a while, come back and nothing has changed.

Hear me? Nothing. Has. Changed.

Sure, you've got your RSS dohinkeys and zero bombers, but they've always been there - and everyone on the forums (including myself) really enjoy complaining about it.

There are flaws - big ones too - in how the audio portal works. From the voting system that is nothing more than a glorified, weighted 'like/dislike' system, to the over-easiness to just run down a list of tracks and hit the zero button on every one, but without a dedicated major redesign, this is not going to change anytime soon.

So instead, why aren't we using the audio portal as it should be used? Dump our stuff, let others hear it, tell our friends online and on the forums to have a listen and fuck what that militant 13 year old with a twitchy voting finger does with it!

...Coincidentally, how is everyone? Any of the REALLY old regulars still hanging around?

I'm still here.

But I am really hating on the constant wars happening in the audio portal.

I also don't like the fact that over 300 songs are uploaded in a day and you have max, between 30 to 90 minutes of new submission notice. If your score even touches the top 15 you get zero bombed. Makes me want to make a song with nothing but chalkboard scratches and find some way to get over 1 thousand IP's to vote it five so they can't vote it down so easily. All the while a message written by us regulars gets put in there. (Think we can pull this off?)

It is just so dumb people, trying to make nothing more than pocket change for hits, will realize it is not about money.

It makes us sick and tired of using the site.

By the way. What sites are you guys using now? I am about to pack up and go.

Loansindi, can you enlighten us about the way you did that dimming? Using a transistor and a variable resistor on the base?

Or did you do it the advanced way and use pulse width modulation, with MOSFETS?
