► After a month of silence

Hello World 🙋‍♀️

After more than 1 month of silence, I want to tell you that everything is okay with me. I work a lot with the music tracker OpenMPT and I'm still working on my track Haunted. In this track I use more than 90% of my own samples. The samples are created with an incredible amount of effort. Many programs and many VST plugins I used for it.

I also got another opportunity to spend another month working on my upcoming track for a demo scene project. And this time, this month, I have also taken to once again change a few things on the track.

As you may know, I've been working exclusively with OpenMPT for a few months now. This music tracker is really great, and I need time to get familiar with the program. My last track Headlock, I have already written completely in OpenMPT. Maybe you can already see some changes in the track and my music style. And these changes should continue. And I'm working very hard on that.

Well, that should be it for now. Don't worry about me and many thanks to all who have written to me in the meantime. 💙

I can't tell you yet when my track Haunted will be released. I'm still working on the samples and currently using brand new effects in my channels that I've never used before.

PS: and as so often .... please excuse my bad english.

Yours melcom

► I am okay

Hey 🙋‍♀️

I've been asked a few times if I'm okay. Like many of you, I would like to do more in life. Unfortunately, this is not possible due to our never-ending pandemic. It stresses me out a lot. 😑 I try to devote myself to other things. I play computer games (currently The Elder Scrolls Online), make some music, work on new samples or try a new music style or I watch Netflix and Co. My upcoming track Haunted has many of my own created samples. I'm also trying out a lot of new stuff in the track. Possibly not everyone will like what I have done there. But that's okay.

Do you want to know what are currently my favorite computer games, then visit my page: About Me. There I have recently listed a few games. Maybe you will find a game for you to have fun with. 

Otherwise, be patient and give me some time. 🤗

Regards,
melcom

► Working on the web page

Hey o/

At this moment, I am working on the web page! The work will be completed tomorrow during the day or weekend. So there may be some problems with the web page. Most of the time I will be in the music area and do some rebuilding there.

Greetings,
melcom

//Update (2021-03-19 05:47)
I am now finished in the music area. My tracks under the years now have a better overview. In addition, there is now information about the module and the MP3 files. It's not really perfect yet, but it's much better than before.

In the "Older Tracks" section, I have now linked my Classic album that I released last year there. Then I deleted old information there on the page and replaced it with new, more up-to-date information.

Finally, I tweaked the code on every page I worked on that night and removed old errors.

Sometime later today, I'll be (slightly) revising the Music Albums section. When I'm done, I'll give you an update.

//Update (2021-03-20 04:49)
If I haven't forgotten, I'm done now! The download sections under Music & Music Albums have received an update. All kinds of information about the individual tracks or music albums are now displayed and everything looks a bit clearer. It's not quite perfect yet, but still better than before.The various download links are also up to date. If I missed something or if you notice an error, please contact me.

The work on my website is not quite finished yet. I will rebuild or update various areas a little bit in the coming days. A lot has happened in the last few weeks. Who visits my web page from time to time, will still remember the old (gray) web page. I like the new look of my web page and one or two new features.I like the simplicity of a web page. My web page is not perfect, of course. I am also not a professional and have only limited knowledge of html programming.

It will also be a little quieter here. I will watch a few series and movies and possibly play a computer game again. Beyond that, I'll try to get further into OpenMPT. 🤗

Regards,
melcom

► There is much to do

Hi 🙋‍♀️

As you may know, I currently work a lot with OpenMPT. I created my own color scheme and my own keyboard layout, and I'm pretty happy with it. 😃 Keyboard layout and color scheme are still in beta.

I'm also working on a lot of new samples. Many of them I'm also trying to use in my next track or in one of the upcoming new tracks for the future. You can find all the stuff in my Dropbox.

And I added some more information about me ... There is not much new information. I was asked about my favorite books and my favorite games. Or if there is a way to look into my GOG wishlist. And yes, there is this possibility. I have nothing to hide 😉 Have fun

I have also revised my links page. There are many new links and almost every link a small description. I will make one or two updates to the site in the coming days.

And now at the end ...
Give me some time to get more familiar with OpenMPT. I enjoy it very much. That's all I have to tell you at the moment.

 Have a great week!

► YouTube videos implemented

Hello folks 🙋‍♂️

I implemented a lot of YouTube videos last night. People who are subscribed to my YouTube channel probably know most of the videos. These are not high quality videos or anything. It's just about offering my tracks on YouTube as well. Anyway, you can now find these videos under my mp3 and mod files. Here is an example ... 🙃 

In addition, I am very happy with the development of my next track: Haunted. I had recently published a few small alpha versions. I hope you like these very early versions of the track. Also last night, I corrected a few small errors that I only noticed in the YouTube video.

And at the end, a little update on my track for a demo scene project:
After sending the track to the project leader a few days ago, I decided shortly after to pull the track back to revise it again. I wasn't happy with a couple of things. Like for example the drums / snare instruments. And so I made a completely new snare instrument myself. One day you can listen to the track. It's sample #23, if you're interested. This sample / instrument now also consists of several snare samples. In addition, I have reworked the sample at the end again with a VST plugin. I also polished the track a bit and corrected two small mistakes that I noticed only afterwards.

The track is now back at the project leader for a few days and I already got some praise. 😃
So, that was enough information for today.

Excuse my bad English 🤦‍♂️

Woah ... It is the middle of the night. We have it just after 4 o'clock in the morning. I should take care of my sleeping rhythm again 🥱

Good night! Or good morning. Whatever you like 😋
