Teckmo-X's News

Posted by Teckmo-X - August 19th, 2016


Hello there my lovlies and welcome back to Newgrounds! Yeah that was for me. I've been a bit off here of course as always trying to find time to make music is hard but I manage with working everyday and finding some time to get done with things and even make some new plays on Newgrounds that you might just be interested in. So without further to do let's get to the main sources of this news post.

 

First off I never got the chance to but I would like to thank @RealFaction and @TaintedLogic for rating my song "Spectrum" during the A.I.M. Music Constest and to congratulate everyones participation in it. I was happy to have made it to the Album with many other wonderful artists some of which I'm following/friends with like @larrynachos who makes some insane rock/ metal music that you just have to listen to. It's like murder music well lol when I hear it at least I think of like gods and vikings fighting each other in some really epic battle and theres thunder and theres you know all that cool stuff boys like :P Here's @larrynachos upload for A.I.M. 

 http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/692737

Also liked songs by @Analogstik @MrSmash64 @Seprix @LucidShadowDreamer @CloakedSoup @Ylmir Amazing work and just have to say realy awesome job everyone! Congrats!

 

Going on of course it's time for a new release and I can't keep you guys waiting on it. I'm bringing another song to define the old days of video game hype with "Dreamcast" a chillstep song with a nice even flow for everyone to enjoy. Check it out via the link below; 

http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/699452

 

Now going to the next subject, let's talk about style and how I make music and blah blah blah haha! So I've noticed that I've been addicted to Chiptune and 8-Bit for some time now and I think I need to switch it up a bit with a new electronic style of music. Don't worry I won't change things completely. I'll be using samples I make as I'm finishing up songs and producing other stuff alike. I play this game called "Cytus" an extremely fun yet difficult game to play depending on how well coordinated you are with your eyes. Requires some large amounts of focus but fun and challenging. Here's a link to it if your interested below. Game is available for both Android and IOS; 

http://www.rayark.com/g/cytus/

 

Trust me this game^ is just CRAZY AWESOME!!! 

 

Anyways continuing many of the songs that are featured in the game fall under the wide variety of Electronic music in categories of Techno, Trance, Dubstep, Chiptune, Rave, Spectrum, Drums & Bass, and Electric Trance/Rave/Techno which is sort of like Gapo music but we don't talk about Gapo.........the horrors Xs

So I'll be trying some really heavy stuff out for the time being and when I have my first upload up you can give me an opinion on what you think. So yeah there's that. 

[What's That Art]

So I love a lot of the Art material that goes around Newgrounds of course and it doesn't matter what it is *Yes I've been there before too. Guilty as charged) So I wanted to share one of my favorite Art Portal Submitters work which I just fell in love the first time I saw his art. @ErrorCell makes some amazing art pieces that is sure to always please the crowd. He mixes art with a storyline that only a few can understand. Bringing scenario after scenario into a timeline of astonishing backgrounds, Azure, a boy and his companion Alex travel throughout the desolate world trying to reach their ultimate goal. A more brief description;

SideTrip is a graphic novel project I began just about a couple months ago. It's about everything and nothing at the same time, which is as abstract as the story can get. The story follows two characters: Azure and his friend Alex, the God of Hiding and the two visit various places in the insane world collecting secrets, particles, and pretty much anything that they need to reach their ultimate goal. 

Here's some of his amazing work;

 

"He's Gone Forever"

 

"Peace"

And my all time favorite

 

"Valley Of Light"

 

Check @ErrorCell out though one of the links above!

Now for the last and final thing I should mention. Now I want to start running a Sweepstakes or some sort of contest but not sure when and how. I'm still doing some research on that but it should be big. If anything I should mention it it's for Audio Artists Only. Not saying I hate you Art goers and Movie Makers but I like music and I like hearing it. Something maybe like the person that makes and amazing song gets a $100 gift card or try to see about a prize pool sort of thing but I'd have to check up with admins on here. If I can't on Newgrounds I'll go for Youtube since this winter I want to start putting up my music on there. I don't know I think it would be fun for everyone. I'll let you know more one I've figured it all out. So that's it for the time being but yeah I'll keep on producing if you guys keep on listening and vice versa. Until next time!

Hey everyone! I'm back with more news and some sweet new tunes. I've been a bit out of Newgrounds lately since I've been having a bad case of depression and it's really just stirring me up. I'm currently trying to cope with it right now and fighting back but it's hard. Either way I'm not quitting the music biz, in fact I have new stuff coming up so here's what's coming;

 

A new song is still under development and I should be done with it before the end of this month. Might have 2 actually. I'm also happy to announce that I have made it into the A.I.M. Contest and earned Fan-Favorite Audio! This is a big accomplishment for me. Still waiting for that signature though. Either way I'm still happy that I got into the A.I.M. Contest Album which made me happy for @Seprix and @larrynachos for getting into the album as well. 

 

Other news include a contest that I'm still looking to do for people on here, specific crowd of artists. More details will be released later on. 

If you haven't checked out my new song be sure to catch it via the link below:

Well I tried my best this year to get into the NGAUC but I came up short of the score. Shame too, I was like an inch away. Oh well maybe next time I'll make it. Knocked out, like with a baseball bat to the head. Hmm well enough of that. Let's get to the new details. 

 

Got a new song up for you guys. Kind of wanted to experiment on it but if you'd like to listen to it give it a go then. Very different from what I usually make but maybe it's a new aquired taste uhmmmm I don't know you decide really :P 

http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/694327

 

Well I'm off to work on some more music which I'll have for you in maybe a week, hopefully.

So for some who might be wondering. So as you can see some songs CANNOT be downloaded for use. This is simply due to the new release of my prototype album which I've been working hard with @ErrorCell who allowed me to use some of his artwork to base the covers off. I'm not sure if this album will have a release date yet but it's currently in the works. 

 

This also concludes a brand new song that is in the making process right now. It's a remaster of one of my old pieces that you all might like. More details coming soon!

So something went wrong with one of my newest uploads and I had to reupload them because of the problems I was having with them and as I listened closely I had to also edit out some errors in it but now it's back and running. Nothing complicated just some minor issues that have now been resolved.

So a while ago for one of my songs I got reviewed on it. The song was practically simple and not much needed to make it sound like something a DJ would make. Now I thought the song came out pretty good and a lot of people liked it too however it's a harsh penalty for receiving a 2 star rating review when your song isn't terrible at all. Now I just want to explain more on what I do and how I make it because some people lljust don't get what music is about. 

 

Now I'm a simple girl who spends her time working for the most part and on free times I get to finish little segments of my new songs I'm making. I spend hours trying to add all I can and make all my songs sound good. I admit it, I'm not the best with making a drum beat but I'm good at making the main parts of leads and rhythms. So as I mentioned I got a 2 star rated review because I didn't use enough drums and I didn't add what the guy suggested as a "Proper Bassline" not to mention pointed out that everything was everywhere. Finally finishing his review with adding that my song was dull. Now just to make this clear, just because I don't make Dubstep or and heavy genre specific music, DOES NOT mean that it's trash. All my songs include high rises and falls and I don't need much of a bassline because I'm already perfecting the rhythm and leads. So a quick simplified chart of what I do for most of my songs;

 

  1. I use 2-5 different leads in all my songs which sometimes goes from 3-7. Not specific leads are usually blended with the rest of the leads to prevent overiding the actual lead parts which is 2-3. 
  2. My rhythm parts are mostly centered on what my lead sounds like. My rhythm parts come in 2-4 which can include either a bassline, orchestral, strings, etc. 
  3. When I'm working/ concentrating on only my rhythms and leads I don't add much of a beat since I like my songs simple. When I do decide to add a specific beat I look it up throughout my folders and try to replicate it using different kicks and snares. I usually add more beat sequences to drums and bass parts. 
  4. All my songs fall within the specified genres; Chillstep, Drums & Bass, Drumstep Chipstep, Chiptune, EVGM, Techno, 8-Bit Trance, and rarely Dubstep. 
  5. My music is specific to my taste in sounds. I make music with whatever I get. What I have is what I have and if it sounds good I continue to work with it.

 

My point is that not everyone has the same taste in music. We all see and hear it in different tones. Music don't have to be whatever the music industry tells us it has to be, music has to be purely something that comes from the heart itself. You don't think when you make music, you just make it. You don't second guess yourself on whether you should take the risk or not, you go for it. In your world, your mind, music is whatever you want it to be and if it means making something that no one has listened to before, then that's where you have to go from. Love music the way you hear it.

So Terrible news guys. It seems that we have had a tragic event happening around the world. The shooting of a Colorado gay nightclub which involved the killing of what I believe 50 and 53 injured. Me being a lesbian makes me feel tortured to know that people can't accept LGBT the way they are. It's a sad time and I pray for those who have suffered the loss of their loved ones and that the injured continue to live on. 

 

In other news which is also terrible I am typing from my wireless keyboard and mouse. Yeah apparently my mouse kinda did a die and it's currently not working so I need a new one. I'm trying so hard to work with this keyboard to use Fruity Loops but it's a hassle. Nevertheless almost done with my song. After I get my new mouse I'll start uploading it on here. 

And in other, other news. I'm trying to see if I can put my guitar parts on here. It's not working so well. Maybe I should have checked out some videos to see how I can do this but I'm gonna lay back and finish up on some things first.

It's always ends up like this... I try to keep up with my music but with how everything goes I end up not being able to finish it. I still try to find time to finish my songs up but work stresses me out. It's just a little heavy on my side theses days. I know I haven't released a lot of songs and the way I'm working these days It's going to take a little bit more time to finish them up so I decided that every month from now on I'm gonna release just ONE new song that I've been working on and maybe a loop if something hits me while I'm developing the first choice. Sorry everyone but It's very hard to keep up now a days... Still I'm doing the best I can to bring you all pure entertainment. Tech still loves you all <3

So it appears that I've been hit, I've been hit hard. *sigh* it seems I've contracted a bit of a stomach flu and it's very painful. I honestly don't know how I was able to write this new post really. I'm crying right now :'( I'm trying to keep it strong but it's just painful and all I can do is take an Advil that just seems to calm everything for 2-3 hours but after that it's back to bed. Anyways let's do this quick before I collapse from internal bleeding. 

 

So it's been a hassle for me to go through all your submissions boys and girls. Not because it's boring. I actually enjoy looking at all of the stuff you guys make but it's bothersome to try and review everything at once so instead I made a new schedule. It's as follows;

[ Uploading Original Music ]

  • Loops will be made during the first week of every month along with the new song of the month.
  • Loops will be released every second Saturday of every month to come. 
  • Full songs will be worked on the entire month from Monday-Fridays. Songs will be released every last Saturday of the month to the first Saturday of every month ( Depending on Calender )

[ Portal Watch ] 

I will now be going over Portals for both Audio and Art *Excluding Animation* to check out some new people I might find insteresting. I'll be looking at content for the first 5 pages of both Audio and Art Portals every Saturday and Sunday. 

* Note: This includes criticing on the lastest Audio and Art submitted to on Newgrounds. *

[ Friendly Critic ]

I like looking at new stuff that people I follow and like have new on their portals. I'll be giving my honest and truthful opinions and advice. 

  • Saturday's and Sunday's from 7:00 - 10:00pm (Eastern Time Zone, Pacific ) I'll be looking at some of the new stuff you guys add to the portal. 
  • Instead of focusing on everything you guys make I'll instead be concentrating on the stuff you guys mainly upload. 
  • Critic will be upon your New Uploads Only! If you wish to have something else reviewed, please just mention it on the comments down below with a link. 
  • Only 1 review per week.

I think this is fair considering that I've got many things going for me everyday like work and responabilites of sorts. Don't worry, I won't forget to do so, so don't stress much. I'll go through everyone before I'm done. Well now I'll have to go and lay down for a bit. I'm starting to feel it coming back again so until next time lovelies <3

So I've been on Newground for quite some time now and I like where I'm going with my stuff. I'm not the most popular person on here and I'm not really the best producer because I know that a girl like myself can't just be all that good with music. So I've been thinking anyways about making a schedule. Now this is horrible of me to not even have noticed it at first hand but I haven't been the best sport out there and checked a lot of your new work everyone, including some that are posted when I am available and this makes me feel horrible. So I had the day to think how I can take the time to look at your stuff. Schedules sound quite nicely doesn't it? Well? 

Here's what it will go by;

  • [Monday - Friday] -> I'll be working with my own music and finishing up important flaws that might need to be fixed. 
  • [Saturdays] -> On these days I'll be posting new music ( 2 uploads each month) mostly a loop mid-month and a brand new song by the end of the month or the last Saturday of each month.
  • [Sundays] -> On these days I'll have spent about 3-4 hours looking over everyones uploads and give them rightful props for their submissions. I'll review them as needed of course but I'm not gonna be a b***h about what you upload. I' ve heard, seen, and played some of your creations and I want to help you gain what I gain. 

I only see that it's a fair schedule since I get to make music from the time of my week days after work and on the weekends I look over your awesome works. 

 

Note: There is one important notice. Because of the probable amount of of stuff you guys uploaded, it will take me some time to check all of them. There is no skips, everyone will be rated and reviewed to raise your meters high and above. 

 

-Other News-

  • I'm working on a new song that will be released: Saturday, the 2nd of April. 
  • Exciting new themes to go by.

 

This was yours truly as always, 

Tech <3
