HAPPY PIXEL DAY TO ALLLL!!!!


I just lovelovelove this event! So many good creators come out of the shadows to make some amazing stuff. Very excited to see this year's batch of tasty pixel goodness.


Here is my piece. It was inspired by this piece of art by Shamfoo



Production on that song went smoother than expected, so a few days ago, I started work on a second song for Pixel Day. Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be able to get it done today, so you can just take this as a bit of news that I have another song coming soon.

Here it is:



This one took me forever and a half to make, both due to creative block and the stress of the pandemic. It's finally done and I feel relieved. I hope people listen to it. Have a good one.

I've been working a lot on a new track lately. I should have it done by the end of the week. Trying something new. It's a YM2203 song.


Not gonna lie, it's not exactly coming out how I imagined it, but I'm doing the best I can. I learned a few things in the process, so it's a win for me. Looking forward to making the next song with this chip.


Have a good day, you all!

It's finally here again!!! Pixel Day!!!! I have seen some really amazing stuff this year in all of the categories. I'm not done checking them all out, but I'm gonna be at it a while. Anyway, I'm proud to say that I have indeed participated this year! Here's my contribution:


Let me tell you a little bit about what I did here. I recently discovered the wonderful goodness that is old PC-98 game music! I fell immediately in love with the tone and style and decided that I wanted to start on a journey to make music reminiscent of said old games. This is my first step.


I looked up the chip used in said old PCs and made sure to to my best to limit myself to what sounds they were capable of producing. My song has 6 FM tracks, 3 pulse wave tracks, one track for 8bit samples, and 6 tracks that are playing the rhythm tones the 2608 had. I also made sure limit each track to one note, and stuck to 3 levels of panning (LCR). I used a Reface DX for my FM synth. I made sure to make my FM patches from scratch using only the 8 algorithms that the YM2608 had. I used no effects (delay, reverb, chorus, etc), or EQ. I apologize if the mix is rough, I still have a lot to learn.


If you give my track a listen, thank you and I hope you enjoy it. I'll also upload a loop-able version of it soon.


HAPPY PIXEL DAY!!!!!

Hey Newgrounds, how's it goin'?


Well, it's been a while since I last uploaded anything here. It's not that I haven't been working on new songs, but I got a new job and have less free time to work on my music. Unfortunately, that means my active projects are going a little bit slower. Anyway, there is no way I am missing Pixel Day again! I couldn't participate last year because I was between computers. I got a new computer midway through 2019 and now I am back in action! My Pixel Day entry is near completion. I will definitely be able to upload it on the day of the event. I freaking LOVE Pixel Day and I hope you are all looking forward to it as much as I am!


See you Thursday!

I finally finished building my new PC!!! It has been killing me that I've been without the means to make new songs for most of 2018. With this new PC, I'll be able to resume working on music. I've also gotten something significantly beefier than my last clunker. With time, I'll be able to buy bigger and better software and tackle more ambitious projects. Until then, however, I'll be picking up my famitracker projects that I was working on before my last computer died. I've already begun working on something new with a new sound that I've never attempted before. I hope it comes out well enough for some of you to like it! I'm using a new tracker, so it might take a while to learn the ins and outs of it. Keep an ear out for it!

It's taken a long time, but I am just one component away from a new PC build! I just need the CPU and I will be back to making chiptune jams and even more complex projects after that!

So, my computer decided to completely die on me last week.  I've been saving up for a new one and buying it part by part, but I won't have it completed until February at the earliest.  Unfortunately, it means that, for the first time since the event's inception, I most likely won't be able to submit an entry for Pixel Day 2019.  Pixel Day is my favorite NG event and I'm super bummed that I won't be able to get something in this year.  That being said, I'm still super excited to hear all the entries this year.  You can bet I'll get something in for the 2020 event!

Hello Everybody!

Like the subject says, I recently opened a Ko-fi page for any generous soul who wants to help me out and throw a few bucks my way.  For those who don't know what Ko-fi is, it is essentially a microdonation platform where contributers can tip small increments of money to creators who post their work online for free.  Each tip is about the same price as cup of coffee ($3 USD).

I'm not begging for money or anything like that, I just want to open a channel that will allow others to help support my work if they really want to.  Any and all donations will go towards buying new equipment and software so that I can make more ambitous tracks.
