I first started exploring Newgrounds at the age of 6. Seeing that audio portal always made me want to start making music. I always thought to myself "other people do it, why can't I?". Around that same time, my dad bought Sonic Foundry Acid and I would always toy around with that. From what I remember, Acid had lots of limitations and only had a few presets and you couldn't do much with them. I stopped using Acid after a couple of years (that sounds really bad, haha. Just keep in mind, I mean the program, not the drug). In 2007 I became a member of Newgrounds and was trying to find new ways of making music so I could start uploading to Newgrounds. Finally in 2008, when I was 11 years old, I found out about FL Studio. Right away I was hooked and was pumping out, what I thought back then, amazing songs. June 13th, 2008 marks my first audio submission to Newgrounds. If you have time, check it out and see how much I've improved, haha. Anyways, 5 years later I have decided to celebrate this day by creating a song that shows what I've learned up to today (Summer Rain). I can promise you that there are many more submissions coming.
Here's to the past 5 years:
My first song ever
Here's to 5 more:
The song I created for this anniversary
On a side note, you want to know a major coincidence? I also get off GDL today, haha. How those two things work out like that is awesome. All I have to do is look at my drivers license and I'll know the date of my first submission... although that seems to be going a little bit too far, haha.
