Never mind album space constraints.

Remember kids, if you collab, then more of you can be involved in the production. We've got 80 minutes to play with.

If it comes down to deciding what songs end up on the album, collaborations will get preferential treatment.

I'm gonna let this thread coast over the weekend and based on the number of people involved I will set a date to close entrance on monday, the 18th.

Simple as:
The final song I ever write under the DJ BrixX Alias.

Genre: Happy Hardcore
Length:Medium to Medium-Long (4:00-6:00)
Complexity: 90% total standard.
BPM: 155-170
I'll put the effort in, but I expect nothing like my current standard of trance.
This is purely because my old more hardcore tracks faired best with the average newgrounds community. Trance proved a little too refined of a taste, which inevitably left to the death of the 'DJ BrixX' alias.

Anyway, I'll try and pull up some old fans I had, and get you guys a nice nostalgic project going.

It's about helping out a country in need.

woahhh, I can see where your both being confrontational. Syntrus, loans probably wants to throw out a project that will sell better so that a bigger donation can be made. I'm not sure though if quality would matter as much given the context of where the money would be going. Loans, watch what you post in your own thread that's meant to be helpful towards other people. If you can't be polite to your own peers, then trying to be helpful towards complete strangers comes off as really damn insincere. There are plenty of ways you could have said no. You could even have just asked syntrus to work on his piece a bit. You could have left a review trying to be constructive and helpful. Syntrus, you probably shouldn't have made that remark about quality. The way I see it, you both need to chill out and reread what you guys posted.

Just so you know, my comment was not insulting your music, I never heard your music.

You should not put yourself down so early in though. If they were intentionally putting you down, than yeah I agree thats not right, and you shouldn't compose a song for them. Remember its not about them, or even you, its about Haiti.

Also, I'd like to point out how much people are already trying to help out. Any amount of cash our work would earn would come off as really weak compared to what's going on out there already. I still think this is a great idea with merit but let me copy/paste off some of what I've read. I'm not sure of the legitimacy of some of these sources but better numbers will come with time. Again, I still see good things here but let's not get too disillusioned with ideals of professionalism.

"In Britain, which has sent teams of specialist rescue workers to Haiti, reports of the earthquake's appalling aftermath prompted a quick public response. The Disasters Emergency Committee said £10 million was raised in 24 hours."

"The U.S. Dept of State's Web site suggests texting 90999 to donate $10 to the Red Cross to help with relief efforts. As of Friday morning, Americans have "texted" more than $8 million for Haiti relief."

"ADRA is launching an initial response worth $85,000 to meet the immediate needs of survivors. According to an initial assessment, the immediate needs include water purification supplies, food, temporary shelter materials, hygiene kits, and medical assistance."

"The American Red Cross has pledged an initial $200,000 to assist communities impacted by the earthquake in Haiti, and is prepared to take further action as local responders assess the situation."

"Handicap International reacted rapidly to the earthquake, which hit the country Tuesday night. The association released $217,657 in funding Wednesday and will provide support for the team."

"Salvation Army: The Salvation Army is currently mobilizing personnel and supplies to assist in the relief effort in Haiti, following the severe earthquake that struck Tuesday. The Salvation Army has already dedicated $50,000 in direct aid to the country, and it is in need of additional donations."

I don't understand people like you... It's ok for insanely rich celebrities to throw fundraisers for all sorts of causes instead of just giving money out of their own pocket... but it's not ok for an average joe to use what talent they have to help raise money to send over for relief efforts.

Get off your pedestal and go die in a fire.

Woah woah.
Stop bickering.

"I don't want people to buy the album and then be like what the fuck is this piece of shit." -loansindi

I am pretty sure that loansindi didn't direct that immediatly at Syntrus' music at ALL. That statement simply means that we really can't throw 'low-quality' music on the CD. It just takes some common sense to determine what the general public would/could like, and some pieces just fall off that boat. Pieces you could all pick out yourselves too mostly.

Syntrus, I'd be glad if you'd make something for the album, the more participants, the better. Simply forget about tensions from the past and focus on the music. We're trying to come together as a community to put out a product that can help people (even if only a bit). Yet again all that seems to come up is individual tensions.

To Quarl: I realize that the results of our efforts will be minimal compared to what other organisations have already raised, but I think that as a community as little as the AF's, we can still do our share, simply because we can, and want to. It shows that we care enough to combine our talent and do something good for it.

Now - I hope we can simply continue as we were doing well so far, I'll have a good chat with loansindi later if there are any additional problems. Go make your best music.

I am a musician and since it is my musician ship and production that is in question I can find several who can vouch for my craft. For instance.

I also have one amazingly well known song on Tom Fulps personal play list. Sure my music may sound a little thrashy but it has the heart some of us are missing.

But I think Loans comment has turned me off of this project forever. I do not know where this resentment comes from but I am not about to sign on to a humanitarian effort with a person that has absolutely no respect for me, or my music. Hell S3C alone could tell you what I am capable of as an artist. But it would fall on deaf ears as you have already made up your mind about me. I have been doing a lot of reading recently particularly the works of the Dalai Lama. Who is a wealth spring of wisdom
"Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions."
-Dalai Lama

I was seeking happiness from my actions seeking to help others. Your project was amazing to my eyes but I feel as though you have violated it. It no longer seems like a charitable endeavor and now seems more like another half baked scheme to promote Newgrounds Audio. Just the way you dismissed me speaks volumes about you and your project.

I am not putting this towards others involved in this project. This is for Loans.

If you can not accept help from others and put your personal feelings aside. You are not helping humanity you are destroying it.

I will be doing the noble thing and retiring from this project. Since one have you has made it clear that I am a piece of shit.

I will do something that can not fail. I will give to the Relief Effort at my next nearest convenience.

If you are still human that feeling in your gut is guilt and I hope it never goes away...

jesus, can we have one thread without someone whining. Stop being so sensitive. Seriously syntrus .. he made one little comment that you had taken the wrong way.. yes, he was a little abrupt and perhaps didnt take your feelings into account, But seriously, dont go off in a whole paragraph of how butthurt you are because of a little comment made. If you really believe that you are an amazing producer than start acting like one and be able to take a few blows to your ego. Why is everyone on this site so sensitive about their music.?!?!?!?!...

THIS IS TO HELP THE PEOPLE OF HAITI!!! they lost everything from home to family and your gonna bitch and complain about a little comment...... Professional quality is key in this so it can be marketed. Dont be a premadonna and think your all that and a bag of chips. No matter how good you think you are you can always stand to learn alot more and better what you can do. This relief album is a perfect example of how you need to step back from your inflated ego and just work hard on a song because any money we make for a relief fund with this is dependent upon quality

In my opinion its disrespectful. either sign up and put out something professional sounding or dont and talk to Loans in a PM. And please put your inflated ego aside... This isnt about you.

I am pretty sure that loansindi didn't direct that immediatly at Syntrus' music at ALL.

Same here. He was just making a point, and although he did it rather bluntly, it still wasn't anything personal.

People need to chill out and remember why we're doing this. I don't have the money to donate hundreds of dollars to Haiti. Doing this is helping in a way I could never manage on my own. If you can't understand that, then why the hell are you posting here?

Let's get back on subject.

Pause. Stop the presses. Hold the fuck on.

Panties in a twist? Stop it.

I have not intended to question ANYONE's musicianship. If you took offense at something I said, then you'e misinterpreted me. Seriously, what the fuck.

Secondly, if you (syntrus) take offense at something I've said, then you should come fucking TALK TO ME rather than raising some huge bitch-fest in a public forum.

I never intended to offend you, but you have shown yourself to be incapable of working with others, so good job on that.

That said, if you calm down and realize I wasn't trying to rip on you, and you can promise not to flip out again, I would -love- to have you involved. Your music is good, I don't know why you flipped out.

To quarl:

Also, I'd like to point out how much people are already trying to help out. Any amount of cash our work would earn would come off as really weak compared to what's going on out there already.

Well no shit. There are entire governments helping. But just because other people are helping doesn't mean if we can raise a couple hundred bucks we shouldn't try. That can feed a few families man, that can fly a doctor over there. Every contribution is worthwhile.

if you really want to contribute to helping the Haiti Relief Situation, then you better be donating money directly yourselves you lot of faggots, additionally. I mean that affectionately.

I don't -have- any fuckin money dude. I'm recently out of a job and am scrambling to find a way to support myself, much less send more than a couple dollars to haiti. I'm trying to raise some money to make up for that.

If you don't agree with the project, take it up with me personally and keep it out of our threads. Thank you

First of all i would love to join.

Though there is one issue, if most of us are making techno/dance/trance the sales are going to be quite low.

See the majority of the people who are going to buy are NG users because Tom is probably going to advertise this to all of NG. I've been to the general forum and many people think "techno' and "rap" are shitty.

We should consider getting some more Rock and Heavy Metal artists in this because thats what the Majority of NG likes.

Also if anyone has memberships at any other forums you guys should advertise there and tell them to join/buy the CD.

I'm above average when it comes to making Dance/Euro-Dance songs sooo most of my music is commercial, ill try to make something that American people like. Something like that shitty Tik-Tok song.

Just some suggestions that might be useful :D

I hope this is going to be good.

Thanks for spamming the thread and for being generally unpleasant.
