    A Question for Composers

    That's a good point, Nick - you're completely right.

    A Question for Composers

    Yes, it is a realization about myself, but it's supported by my discussions with other artists. I'm not trying to force this on anyone else; I'm simply trying to provide an alternate point of view. I'm neither ignoring nor minimizing how much free music is done in this community- I think it's...

    A Question for Composers

    Classic argumentum ad absurdum, IMO. Nowhere in my previous post did I say that paying composers makes them do worse work. I said that when they do solely paid work over a long period of time, it often makes them do worse work. I'm just asking - why not balance out paid commissions with free...

    A Question for Composers

    Nick, my intention is most certainly not to tell people what the best way to do their stuff is. I'm not trying to pressure anyone. As I said earlier, I don't have a problem with taking paid commissions, but I do think that it should be balanced with free/personal projects to keep the creative...

    A Question for Composers

      I agree completely with Happy. Touch, I definitely understand what you mean, and I think a better way to phrase my OP would be as a warning to composers rather than a question/accusation. I just feel as though when money becomes your motivation, it starts to suck the creativity right out of...

    A Question for Composers

    I understand what both of you are saying. It just seems to me that there were a more composers doing work for free a few years ago. And, by the way, if you really do depend on paid commissions for a livelihood, this is probably not the best place to advertise - there aren't a lot of devs here...

    How to create my own music

    Gorlami is spot-on. I'd also look into Acoustica Mixcraft if you're on a Windows computer - it's a great little program, very easy to use, and it's quite inexpensive when compared to the other DAWs out there. There's also a 40-day free trial and a free library with some pretty good sounds. What...

    A Question for Composers

    @Gorlami - I'm sorry. If it's a main source of income, I certainly don't mean to dispute the necessity of it.

    A Question for Composers

    First of all, this may well be in the wrong place. Apologies in advance, mods. As some of you know, I was an active composer in the old rpgmakervx.net community around two years ago. Life forced me to take a bit of a break, but I've come back to the community here and one thing has struck...

    Post Your Music

    This is a piece I completed a while ago, featuring an amazing cellist from the UK named Deryn Cullen. Any comments/criticism would be great. :)   https://soundcloud.com/aakaash-rao/a-difference-of-opinion-feat

    Back to my roots! Music for use in your games

    Hi Amerk - please feel free to use whatever tracks you like from back before I imposed the limit, even if they're here as well, in addition to five new tracks from this library if you'd like. The limit is five per project.

I've just finished organizing music files from a music Humble Bundle I purchased a while ago (putting in specific themed playlists, deleting from playlists, deciding which games they'll be used for. etc.). I'm feeling pretty confident that the sound design for my games will be up to high standards. Sound design seems to be relatively under-discussed as a topic in game development imo.
So I just got back from SeaWorld and I'm back to working on my game. I'm stuck on Shadowstar, mainly due to needing two more princesses... I have all the canon and toy princesses, plus Sunset Shimmer just for kicks. I decided not to include Cadence since this isn't in that era. But... I'm going to have to design two OCs now.
I'm completely missing on this site :kaodes: How's everybody doing lately?

I'm looking at/working through a simple game tutorial. Town, dungeon, boss; town, dungeon, boss; etc. (Thanks, Yanfly!) I'm itching to make something complex but experience (and past disappointment!) tell me to go slow and learn.
