One full year on Newgrounds!!

Today marks a full year since I have joined Newgrounds. Loved the path I have taken, and the progress I have made. Now for my second year on Newgrounds! :D

Let's talk about some highlights from my first year:

http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/717343
This is my only highlight from 2016. This is pretty much one of my best 2016 songs, if not the best.

http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/732968
Not my best, not my worst, but not in the middle either. This was my most played, most downloaded, and yet most downvoted song. I am not ashamed of the hate caused, but I don't see this song as a mistake either. This also set the record for a song of mine with the fastest boost with 660 plays in as little as 3 hours!

http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/734596
This was just something I made from scratch. This was my own version of U.N. Owen Was Her (Touhou 6: Embodiment of the Scarlet Devil; Scarlet Flandre's Theme). I plan on doing more stuff like this in the future.

http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/735534
My first dubstep collab! @ELEPS44
I am still really astounding of the result, and I hope I can do another ELEPS44 collab soon! My best collab, and his first collab, so there is a first for both of us!

http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/740946
I was really surprised on how this turned out. It was my first time using plucks in FL Studio Mobile. I plan on doing a Truth 3, and sequels for a couple of my other songs.

http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/744298
My song Strong Force was a big step up above my usual stuff of Newgrounds. Thanks to this song, I am able to at least attempt soem basic dubstep (I still need some practice, but I got it somewhat worked out). I am still a rookie at dubstep, but I do pretty well with dubstep at a starter level, but I haven't dabbled with a bit of advanced dubstep yet, I don't think I am ready for it, but soon I will be! And I also have a little story to tell about this song:

While I was making Truth 2, I was thinking of putting in a dubstep drop, but I kept failing, so I went to the demo song Jasmina by Goldhands and used a similar pattern, but I still kept failing. So for the 5 days after, I just went the normal route for Truth 2 and improvised. Not long after that, in April 24, I started a totally new project just for testing a simple dubstep track. I listened to Goldhands's Jasmina again and then listened to ELEPS44's Effects and Dubstep Machine remix. When I got to the pre-drop, I was still trying to figure out a great pattern for a dubstep drop. I was in the same position as I was a month prior, failing just like I did in the drop attempt in Truth 2. So I stopped working on the project and went back to Truth 2 and finished it. Truth 2, at the time, became my best song and most productive, with a total production time of 40 hours. Truth 2 is still my most productive song as of today. So 3 days after I uploaded Truth 2, I began working on the unnamed project (soon to be Strong Force). Just 2 hours after, I found out about a weekly contest called NGCHIPS, so this gave me a bigger inspiration boost. On the next day, I had a eureka moment for the first dubstep drop. 3 hours later, the first dubstep drop became my best work I have done since my first music piece I have done by myself in 2014. Just only 2 days after, the second drop idea came. I just pitched the notes to different pitches so it sounds different, and so it did. I finished it on May 9, where between then and May 13, I tweaked some stuff here and there until it became the Strong Force song you here today. I renamed the unnamed song to Strong Force on May 12. That is pretty much the big story.

This is my second dubstep collab, and a second dubstep collab @tNava has done as well. I really like how this one turned out as well! I also plan on doing more collabs with tNava in the future, but not very soon.

http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/750014
Just putting this in the highlights for one reason: NGCHIPS DumbCompo 2 Sample Pak 9000 Contest hosted by @johnfn. I chose the hardest mode and managed to slide by easily (Ultra Hard Mode: use only 7 of the given samples and no other instruments). I hope there will be another Sample Pak Contest so I can do that challenge again! I love these kind of challenges despite this being my only time in this situation.

My first time at dark cinematic orchestral music. This was my third entry for NGCHIPS III. I accomplished this through a soundfont ensemble in LMMS, and it sounded very majestic but it was repetitive.


Didn't make NGADM, but...

2017-06-26 18:54:12 by JordanKyser

I always have NGCHIPS from @johnfn and NGUAC

It was my first time, so even if I would have made it, I would still be happy, but if I did make it, I would be surprised.

NGUAC auditions end in 4 days but I was the 12th person to submit their NGUAC '17 audition piece. I would also be surprised if I make NGUAC, because this one as well if my first NGUAC.

Anyways, if I don't make NGUAC, I still have NGCHIPS.

Why am I not upset? I learned to not let some things get over my head and get to me.



I am in another musician block again, and I am thinking of doing my first collab (or collabs) with anybody who uses FL Studio Mobile 3. I don't want to start from scratch (if we do, please do your part first, and make it within 2 days for my pleasure), as I ca't get any fresh ideas out of my head properly. As I did with Dubstep Machine, I found out that to cure my musician block, I just collaborated with someone who wants to have a collab. Please PM me your unfinished FL Studio Mobile 3 song files (this is so I can put my part in it) if you want to have a collab with me. I apologize if I have confused anybody. If my musician block goes away before my first FL Studio Mobile collab, I will still accept those so don't worry.



Thank you all for making my song Dubstep Machine as my first top feature in Newgrounds!!!! As a thank you, listen to my technostep masterpiece: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/734079.


FEATURED!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

2017-03-02 06:41:03 by JordanKyser

This morning, I open up my computer, only to find out that my remix of Viking Arena has gotten featured!!!!!!!! I knew I could accomplish it if I tried hard enough. Now I will try get one of my songs frontpaged.



I am hosting a dubstep contest with my song Vocoded (http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/727972) and the best will have a collab with me, but this only applied to those who use LMMS. I am thinking of bending the rules some. I will now let anyone try to dubstep any of my non-remix songs. I have four songs already remix-ready and dubstep-ready (https://musescore.com/jordankyser), any others I will try to convert to PDFs for anybody to use for remixes/dubstep by PM request (or by MIDI files if I don't have the XML files, but this will take half an hour to a few hours, unless the songs were made with FL Studio Mobile as those will take a few minutes). The dubstep entries still apply here: http://jordankyser.newgrounds.com/news/post/978232.


Remix requests

2017-02-13 18:39:00 by JordanKyser

If you want me to remix your music, please send me the following:
- Midi files for each instrument
- Any drum rhythms
- Presets (if possible, mainly to LMMS musicians)



Through late May, I will be less active on Newgrounds due to exams at school, but my activity will only diminish progressively rather than a sudden change of activity. On the week containing May 9th and May 12th, I may not even be on Newgrounds due to very special exams I have to take. On the brighter side, until the exams I may upload some music just to keep the feeling that I have not left. But after May 23th, my activity on Newgrounds should return to normal afterwards, if not after May 12th. Don't worry, I will be back sooner or later.



(This was posted on mobile)

I am working on an ambient song similar to my song Pain, but it will be roughly a quarter of that length. I am also working on a dubstep remix in which I am finishing up to upload to Newgrounds. I don't do well on dubstep so don't expect anything great (implies to the dubstep fans).
