Upgrading My Software and New VST's

2009-11-16 19:54:15 by DawnOfDreams

Alright guys, here I am, DawnOfDreams. Sorry about that last post. I probably am a bit angry that no one's listening to my submissions, but I'm glad that no one's copying me either. Remember:

Copyright belongs to me, Allen N. Bui (DoD), as the original artist of these songs I created. My work is free to distribute as long as you don't steal my work and put your name on it, don't steal my name and claim credit for my work, don't distribute my work at a price, and so on. It is not limited to just that list, and if I find you copying my work, I'm going to be pretty mad. I have the original .flp files so don't even try. DON'T.

Thanks guys. Appreciate it if you'd leave just some comments, here and there.

I'm working on a hip hop beat for my Personal Project at school, so you might be seeing me cranking out more audio submissions than usual.

My friend Brandon is working on getting a mic for me, though it will, no doubt, take a long time.

As of now, I'm also thinking about upgrading my software and pulling out my DAW workstation out of the pantry and getting some usb to midi cables...

Now I am considering the following:

Steinberg Cubase 5
Cakewalk Sonar 8
Propellorhead Reason 4.0 (This is a def consideration. I heard the interface and the libraries are awesome to work with.)

I'm not working with:

Logic Pro (I've hated it. It seemt too acidic and too hard-scale for me to use when I was at a friends house using his mac.)
Pro Tools (I might like having a Pro Tools interface, but I don't like having the time to get an MBOX and/or a mixer. That's when I get pro, I will use those things.)

Why I'm not using FL Studio 9 XXL Producer's Edition anymore? Part of it is because the parameters on the VST and the mixer might be fun to use, they get a little out of hand when my computer has crackles in the sound chip. Maybe by upgrading it will help me, but as of right now, it's reserved for later, but I'm still using it.

I'm thinking of getting a new computer. That might be far from now but I still really do want one. One that can actually handle my overpowered mind to loop such things into so many channels and not drive my brain into overdrive because I'm constantly editing every single parameter of pan, resonance, distortion, and such. It takes a LONG TIME to fine tune songs to my liking. That is why "The Entity" came out slush like pudding when I first exported it from my computer. Now it's a lot better.

Alright, well, peace out you guys. Hope to see you guys in the studio soon.

P.S. I'm angry about my old piano breaking after so long. I hope it'll be able to get fixed, but digital pianos are harder to fix than regular acoustic grands. Yay~

This Sucks.

I'm not in the mood to play those starky little flash games. They're great minigames but they are dull in comparison to real RTS's, Shooters, or even RPG's. No, wait, there are none. I forgot. Oh well. I just don't like this site enough that I might as well quit because, there's no love here, no aspiration to show more music appreciation, and unfortuately, I really think I thought right. NAP really is filled with a random, show-up call of annoying douchebags trying to be favorable in a fare free-for-all community.

Call quits. I give up. I know it's been like 4 days but I hated my stay here. I'd rather move back to my Deviantart life. Or my writer's blog life.

This has completely died on me. Newgrounds has a name but it doesn't have that sort of organized, prestigious name. I've shown my friends my music, and even though they're into R&B and Hip Hop of the sort, they like my songs. The only thing missing is a vocal. And some fitting filters and flangers.

I need a DJ for that though. Luckily, I have found one of my awesome and most reliable friends, Ecko, to create a hardstyle version of "The Entity". He knows how to use VirtualDJ to create scratches, distorts, and presumably, filters and flangers. I think I might look to him for remixing advice.

As of all in all though, I seem to not belong here in Newgrounds. It simply does not make me happy.

Peace. Go ahead and send me a message on my AIM, or Facebook, or my MSN. If you tell me you're from newgrounds, and if you have a negative view on my perspective, and considerately the aspective, then don't even try to send a message. Really.

I will probably still submit music here, despite how large-scale depressing the NAP really is. All time tracks don't really even sound like all time. It's ALLLLWAYS changing. One week it's those songs, then it's the next AND NEXT and next. The number 1 on there right now is decent, but it doesn't deserve it, really. If NAP really is All time 'I give them out to the best looking ones' then again. I say I don't belong here. Period.

Peace out guys. Gotta eat something nice for tomorrow. I'm writing a ballad for my loneliness. *sarcasm* =(

Unless... there is a change. I will not come back. Until they really send me a damn email that says it.

My music got submitted. Unfortunately, no one's listening to it though. I need comments, votes, stuffs... but unfortunately I don't know anyone here in the NG. I'm going to have to wait a little, I guess...

*sigh* *goes in the corner* *cries* *comes out* *holds board that says "I'm Lonely"*

No, really, though. I'll make a vast, trying attempt to post more in the forums... and play those flash apps O.O I might fit in the time to try it... despite I'm playing new PS3 games, including the uber-awesome Uncharted 2: Among Theives, Ratchet And Clank Future: A Crack In Time, and also... an MMO that probably no one's heard of.

Alright, well... good luck, me. Peace out, guys! ^^'

If you're bored and they do get submitted, gaah! Comon NAP Moderators! XD Get my audio in =)

Alright, guys. I've submitted my first songs: "The Entity" and "Forever Is A Dream".

Apparently, before I'm able to submit anything, my music has to go through submission and checking with the various "voluntary" workers of the NAP. That gives me a bit more time to work on FL Studio, download new VSTs, and also just jam here!

BTW I got 2 days off from school. You guys are probably going to see around 6 songs from me by the end of this week. I really need to submit these things. Only 2 audio submissions per day, so I'm going to be spending a lot of time. ^.- but don't worry, I'm a good student.

PLEASE don't spam my page. I hate spam. I will not tolerate spam. I won't report you, but if you do it again, I will, no hands, report you through some way.

Before I get back here, in a somewhat tedious 2 hours, I gotta make sure that the mp3's get through.

Good luck, guys! Again, I'll see you in the studio! (Technically, my room, but hey, what's a world without creativity?)

What's up, Newgrounds!

Hey, ladies and gentleman! Right here!

Hi, guys. I'm DawnOfDreams, and I'm new to the Newgrounds Community. =D I just got FL Studio 9, and I'm not much of a DJ/Mixer, however, I'll try my best to make you guys music, because I enjoy making music, and I enjoy it even more when you guys can give me tips on how to make it better, or even leave a comment! (BTW, please, please, no haters) For everyone that's visited this page, thanks guys, I really appreciate it, and please leave comments! I really want to hear from you guys! Thank you all, and hi, newgrounds! =)

Also, about my name, DaZeny, since my original choice of name was Dazened (but it was taken), I named myself DawnOfDreams, which is close enough. Somewhat, it sounds cool.

I'm 15 years old and I go to high school. At my age, I don't know I should be making music or doing my homework. Nevertheless, I have the time to do both. 'Cause I'm asian. Nah, I'm joking, but really, I'm asian. Heh. ^^'

I'm single. Just to shout out there. Looking for friends, relationships, dating, love, and a cute, fascinating girl to love. =p

I love anime and manga, any form of music that pleases the ear, food, friends, games, helping the enviroment, humor, anything that seems fun! If you'd like to talk about that on my page, then please be welcome to! I like reading random comments sometimes. =D

If you can help me how to operate FL Studio with even more features than before, thanks, I still don't really know how to use it. X__X

Alright, well, peace out! See you guys in the studio soon!
