Yeah, that is a pain with rendering and stuff. And I would "re-buy" everything if I took it up as a career, but my parents get on me about pirating because my best friend pirates all the time, and I pirated RPG Maker XP not knowing I pirated it back in 2009 - 2010. lol
Oh wow, that sounds pretty cool! I've been thinking about doing something like that too, although it's really just remaking some songs I made back in the day, since I now know how to make them significantly more.. properly, I guess :P That's a good way to be, I like to think once I make money from music, if that ever happens, then I'll legitimately buy the things I've pirated, since I just cannot do that right now :P
I'm planning on putting a teaser on SoundCloud with a link to the album as a whole on MediaFire (since I can see the amount of downloads it has), but I will also be putting it on BandCamp for 'Pay What You Want' after a while, if people like it! Also I haven't been rendering them as WAV so I'm too lazy to go straight to BandCamp, as rendering takes a while for me :P
Thats sounds awesome! I am currently working on a compilation album of all the music I made under my different personas. I have been having some really good ideas for music, but I am saving up money to buy the VSTs I need to put my plan into action. I feel really guilty if I pirate stuff, so I never have and never will. I also have good melodies, but when I try and put them in piano roll, I like, can't do it, but whatever.
But yeah. Are you going to release your EP on bandcamp?
I am chill. I just came back and thought I would see how you are doing. I didn't notice that you uploaded stuff until today when I got a chance to go and look. Really good stuff you have going on though.
Lol, no worries dude. You technically gave me two or three followers since you and your friends share an account, right? And I figure there's something to learn from everyone! Now get making some tracks! :D
So, I got some another person into making electronic music and of course they aren't the best at it yet and use pre-made loops and such, but he does play the drums. After most my best friends became beginners in musicianship, I wanted to do alot of stuff together. Then, I realized I was the only one who was doing music and Chris really wasn't. We had ideas, but we never put them into action. So, this sounds odd, but I made Coin Toss a project instead of a band, and I started doing things solo. Now the Coin Toss Project is pretty much the superband of my 4 friends and me. Everything we release together goes there. It is pretty ridiculous, but I can finally go my own way and do other things. Weird, huh?
Ah well, maybe you're better than you think. Even if you're not, you'll manage with your other musical abilities :)
Wow, that's.. funny, kinda, I suppose :P I'm quite wary of pirating things in general, but I wasn't even aware you could do that with software, haha.
I sometimes put out previews, but usually I have a track pretty much finished by the time I release previews, which defeats the point a bit. Other times I release previews that go down brilliantly, though I never end up finishing it, for some stupid reason XD
Yeah. My parents think I should sing good because my dad is a singer and my mom is pretty good. I think I just got the bad genes. lol
Chris always torrents and hacks stuff. Him and his brother that is. One time, he told me a story of how him and his bro downloaded the Ghost hack that cuts television power out. He went to karaoke and when the first person went up he cut the power. Off-topic completely, but funny. :DDD
And yeah feedback is great. I always make sure to put out previews to make sure everything is good.
And I have some more great big news if you wanna hear.
