I am really happy that my FM albums, solo and collaboration alike have all been so well received and appreciated. Thank you so much for your warm support! It means a lot to get feedback from anyone, but especially those who are fellow musicians and chip enthusiasts!
Now, to the topic at hand :). You may be wondering what happened with FM Portable or why it hasn’t come out yet. Well, the truth is we have more than enough finished material. Perhaps too much! In fact, if we were to compile what we have it would almost be FM Possible 2!
Therefore, we are leaning towards putting out a series of smaller albums over a period of time so that people can have time to take in our new stuff leisurely. However, we still would like your input. What do you think would be best? One big album? Or a steady stream of smaller albums over time? Let me know in your comments bellow :).
On another topic that isn’t completely unrelated, I have started up a VGMM collaboration forum. Why? Well, a lot of people have asked me for a tutorial of sorts and while I thought about it…I discovered it already exists and that would be a bit boring anyhow. Just in case you want to check it out it’s here.
However, I think the best way to learn is hands on experince! So, why don’t we learn from each other by working together?
In here, users can submit song ideas :). My friends and I can take these ideas and attempt to flesh them out. As you download these files and load them into VGMM, you’ll be able to see first hand what we are doing and be able to mess with them yourself. That way, you learn by experince. If you have any questions, post them in the forum and I am right there to try and answer them. Everyone is welcomed, and no doubt it will be a lot of fun to share ideas while building and learning from one another and our collective musical influence.
If this really takes off, then maybe it will open the door for a Noichan VGMM compilation! I am pretty sure once you guys start getting the hang of things, you’ll be like me and get hooked :D.Â Mise is new at this but has already started helping us to create some music, and it has been neat having a fresh perspective so I cannot wait to work with everyone and see what we can create together.
Don’t depend on me only to do everything though! If you want to be a part, jump in there and try :D. I’ll help when needed, and we’ll make something rad together.
So there you have it! Not only do we have plenty of material to release for a new album, we want to make even more and we’d like everyone who wants to learn VGMM to help us out. Let us know how you’d like to see our songs released, and I’ll see you all in the collaboration forums ready to make some more :D.
I know many of you would like to learn VGMM, and I know some of you must have unfinished ideas! So yeah, come on Noichan! Jump in, and let’s do this! :D
