SmithCommaJohn received notice last night that he and his family need to vacate their apartment within 90 days as the building is being torn down. They need all the financial support they can get to be able to find a new place within that time. 

Fortunately, we Newgrounders can help buy buying his EP on BandCamp and being generous in the "name your price" box. So without any further ado, GO GET IT

Edit: I just noticed I posted this on my 6th account birthday, so woopee!

Welp, here you go NG, an NG cut of a Trance track I worked on for ages. I present to you: Magnitude  

 

 

The full version (8:35 instead of this 4:38) is on SoundCloud and BandCamp. Thanks for listening!

Here's one I took recently. Turned out pretty well, I think.

Happy holidays!

In other news, I moved house recently. Still figuring out the nearby good photo spots.  



Sorry, no picture this time, but I really felt this was worth checking out.

John Hopkins recently released an album, "Immunity", and one of the tracks on there is just sublime. It's called Abandon Window:

I advise you to plug in a set of high quality headphones and turn up the volume to fully appreciate it. There is some masterful sound design and production going on in there. He manipulates the bits of reverb so well, it makes me rather jealous. I suspect there's also a good deal of field recording embedded in the noise that builds up throughout.

You can buy just this track here: Abandon Window on Beatport

Or get the whole album here: John Hopkins's "Immunity" on Beatport

John Hopkins is awesome, check out this amazing track by him



Took this one on a nightly walk yesterday. Full size

If I recall correctly, it was a 10 second exposure.

Here's another picture. About 30 seconds after this picture everything was getting soaked.

Inspired by Digitally Imported's "Space dreams" channel, to which I go to sleep every night, I wrote something in the same kind of style.

It's a whopping 8 minutes long, and I wrote it in 3 sessions.

Without further ado: Aphelion

If you like this sort of stuff, you can follow me on SoundCloud; I post mainly ambient / chill-out stuff on there. My alias is Cimylium.

Thanks for listening!

TL;DR: I made this: Instaud.io - quick and easy audio sharing for audio producers (music producers, singers, musicians, voice actors, sound designers...)

Over the past few months I've been working on a simple website for super simple audio file sharing. The target audience is musicians like you and me, who like to frequently share bits of work in progress on social networks or over IM, to get some feedback before finishing the final product and uploading it to the NGAP, SoundCloud, or what have you.

The main objective is to make it quick and simple, and I like to think that's what it is right now.

All you do is drag a file onto the page (or use a conventional upload button), wait for it to upload, and you get redirected to a very simple page with just a big audio player, under a short URL.

You can click on the progress bar in the player to advance to somewhere in the file, just like you would with any audio player. The difference is that the URL updates to include the time point you've selected. This lets you link to a specific point in an audio file, which makes it all the more useful for feedback.

Here's an example of an audio page: http://instaud.io/t
(That's my attempt at playing a simple version of Requiem for a Dream, but I digress.)

You don't need a user account or anything, you just get on there, upload your file, and you're done.

You have the chance to delete the file again as long as you don't close your browser. If you still need a file deleted after that, you can use the link in the footer.

I am continually working on improvements and new features for this thing; if you want to stay up to date, you can do that through Facebook or Twitter.

I hope y'all find it useful!

I built something useful! Meet Instaudio

I'm quite happy with the lighting and composition in this one. This 55-200mm lens does good stuff for its price too. Full size

Note: this is straight out of the camera, no adjustments made.
