Anyone still motivated to make a full-lenght album?

Need a break?

My friend Bjørn just released an album. It's a mix of old beats he made some time ago and new stuff.
He got two songs played on Jay Scarlett's Sounds Supreme podcast and one on Basic Soul Radio. Pretty damn cool if you ask me! Sending stuff to podcasts or blogs or similar media outlets is a good way to get some exposure.
He has the album up on Bandcamp, here's a link if you want to check it out.

We've talked about doing something together, but so far it has only been jam sessions. Might have to come up with a new name for that project.

Congrats to your friend!
I'm gonna give it a whirl over bandcamp at some point. And yes, one can do as many aliases for the different projects as one needs. I actually created a new one just two days ago too. I'm feeling very good and am excited about my life in the near-latest times.

The whole Corona thing as example also took me lots of pressure off. Not being sadist or anything, but sometimes these happenings may have some kind of a positive impact on some people.

Anyway, cool to see you around mate!
Hope you visit our place more oftenly.

Greetings from Finland! :)

Yeah, I think BC is the way to go nowadays.
I have a few names I've used over the years, but lately I've been sticking to Paralytik.

The crisis has fucked up my economy royally, not sure about how I'll survive the next month. Still waiting for the crisis package the government is working on.

And yes, more activity is good, but I don't have much to contribute with regarding Reason stuff. My main PC is at least rigged up in my new room now, but found out the keyboard is dead and I don't have a spare one, nor any money to get a new one. So no Reason songs from me quite yet.

Might also make a BC account. Right now I have PRO-account in the both, Soundcloud and Soundclick.

Paralytik is a good name IMO. :thumbup2:

Sorry that you're having crisis - hope the government hurries up.

But hey, we also have a 'hardware' and a ' other software' forums here so feel free to post in there too!

By the way, do you know what kind of a midi-keyboard you'd get?

Bandcamp is, from what I've understood, the best platform for selling right now (and has been for years). I buy stuff there all the time, mostly vinyl though, but you get lossless format downloads with that too.

Yeah, I'm happy with the Paralytik moniker, been using it for a couple of years for my dubsteppy things. I have the Soundcloud, the Bandcamp and the Youtube pages, and also the dot com address. Not much music has been made so far though, haha. But it's in the works!

And with keyboard I mean an actual keyboard to type on lol, I've got a few smaller MIDI keys I can choose from. A new keyboard would be cheap, but need to prioritize food and bus card and things like that. I'm working again now, but was temporarily laid off without pay for 6 weeks or something, so my whole budget is fucked for at least 2 months onwards.

I'm gonna try to set up some of my hardware in the new room and maybe make live jamming Youtube vids. So many plans but not enough disciplin or energy...

I have got plenty of music made, but I haven't yet got myself to make music, that would be intended i.e. 'it'.

Ah, ok. I could buy you a new one after two weeks when I recieve my money. Not anything fancy, but I could drop you 20€ for it. :mrgreen:

Yeah, I'm also always having more plans than time, energy or money to accomplish stuff, hehe. :cussing:

Thanks man, but you don't have to send me money lol. I'll get it fixed, got some other friends with money that I can borrow from.

I think my tracker stuff proves you don't need much (money) to make good stuff. The GAS is only in your head. Sure, it can be fun with new things, but do we actually NEED them to make better music? I think not.

Agreed, I didn't mean I have not enough tools/money to make a tomorrow's hit. Rather the money part is a problem to not have enough cash to buy a new couch. LOL! :lol:
