I got quite the surprise this morning when I discovered that, of all things, one of my songs was chosen as one of the Best of the Week! The song in question? A piano/electronic arrangement, Ranked at #5 is...

"Sonic3DBlast- Green Grove Piano" http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen /405191

I really was not expecting this! Thank you all very much for the votes and reviews thus far! I really appreciate it. :)

I never imagined one of my tracks would wind up in the Best of the Week, nor sharing the spotlight with another awesome song by ParagonX9! "ParagonX9 - Blue Marine" http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen /406155

Well, that's all for now. Thanks again, fellow Newgrounders and see you next time! :)

Another Track of Mine in the Top 30?!

Updated

Well, much to my surprise, once again, I have another track listed on the front page of the Audio Portal amongst the top 30! The song in question? Ranked at #21 is...

"Sonic- Emerald Hill Zone Piano" http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen /376198

Yikes! That makes three of my tracks, so far, that have wound up among the top 30 of a given week in the last month and a half! Well, nice to know that people have enjoyed my first original track "Industrial Ruins" http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen /378759 as well as my collaborations with John Weeks. :) Thank you very much, fellow Newgrounders!

In other news. I have a few more new tracks.

For anyone who enjoyed my song "Industrial Ruins" and wanted to use it in a Flash game, here is a looping version of that song: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen /388496

Lastly, I have a brand new song! It's something I made from some inspiration from the older Megaman X games on the SNES, but also because I wanted to finish an experimental song that I have been tinkering with for the last month. Fans of the Megaman X series may enjoy my latest composition, not to mention my second complete original tune:

"Reploid Deployment" http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen /390747

And, for anyone who wants to consider using this song in a game, here is a looping version of this track: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen /390748

Here's hoping you enjoy my original tunes as well as my collabs with John Weeks. See you all next time! :)


Another of My Tracks on the Front Page of the Audio Portal!

Man! Talk about an even bigger surprise!

My first original tune:
"Industrial Ruins" http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen /378759

...is now on the front page of the Newgrounds Audio Portal, ranked at #5!

This means a lot to me as this is the first original song I have ever written! ^_^


How did THAT happen?

Get a load of this. I don't know how long this situation will last, but one of my songs is on the front page of the Newgrounds Audio Portal!

Ranked at #23 is "Sonic- Marble Zone Piano" http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen /374224

I was wondering why my tune had been getting so many reviews in the last few days. Not to mention having the score drop from 4.38 down to 4.01 as of this writing. My song certainly is not nearly as good as the other top 29 tunes listed on the front page of the Audio Portal.

Well, this certainly is quite a surprise for me. I wonder how much longer it's going to stay up there? ^_^;


Yay! Two "Gold" Tracks!

2010-12-24 19:13:11 by DrMackFoxx

In case you were not aware, audio tracks in the Audio Portal used to be given a designation depending on the number of times a song was downloaded. Those designations were:

0-499 Downloads = Audio Track
500-999 Downloads = Gold Track
1000-2499 Downloads = Platinum Track
2500-4999 Downloads = Double Platinum Track
5000+ Downloads = Diamond Track

That being said, I now have two songs that would have been classified as Gold Tracks under the old system of the Audio Portal! Those songs are:

"Sonic- Casino Night Zone Piano" http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen /342274

...and my newest Gold Track:

"Sonic- Green Hill Zone Piano" http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen /333326

I am very happy that people are enjoying the songs that John Weeks and I have put together. There shall be more of these in the near future. See you all next time! :)


My First Composition!

2010-11-25 21:39:48 by DrMackFoxx

Just this morning, I was tinkering around with a MIDI sequencing program. By the end of the day, I managed to complete a good-sounding composition! Without further ado, here is my first original track:

"Industrial Ruins" http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen /378759

Certainly a good ambiance for alien ruins or for the ruins of a city or factory that once belonged to an advanced civilization. What secrets might you uncover? What horrors could await in the darkened, metallic depths?

Constructive criticism is greatly appreciate, especially as this is my first original tune. I hope you enjoy it. See you next time! :)


That's A Lot of Tracks!
