Officially signed on to the mobile game “Not a Clone”

omiya games logo

I happy share with you all that I have officially signed my contract with Omiya Games and will be the sound designer (and hopefully composer) of “Not A Clone” (a satire mobile of all the mobile games in the market).

The game mechanics loosely mimic WarioWare for some fun interactivity of time-based challenges of the games people love such as Super Hexagon, Cannonball, Threes, Flappy Bird and many more!

See video below to get a feel for what “Not A Clone” is inspired by.

Thus Far, check out this video that exhibits my sound design work in the  actual game. (Music is not mine, Sound Effects Only)

More exciting news to follow soon.

Bass Gorilla Posts “Rockband to MIDI Article”

Rock-Band

I recently wrote an article on Bass Gorilla that focuses on linking your RockBand Drums as MIDI Drum Kit in Cubase. XenFlex,the founder of Bass Gorilla, gave me the opportunity to write this article as a guest post on his website.

Bass Gorilla offers tutorials on music production from music producers who are skilled at their craft. On the website you can find articles and videos on how to build your production chops for multiple genres.

In 2011, I had this crazy idea to use RockBand Drums as a MIDI Drum Kit instead of paying $1,000 – $3,000 for one. I was challenged and said it couldn’t be done but I figured out how to get it to work. I took it a step further and programmed some drums samples  to be triggered in Kontakt.

In the article I discuss a step-by-step process of the tools needed for the setup, the signal flow from the third-party software to Cubase and MIDI mapping of the samples to be triggered from the Rockband Drum Kit to Cubase from Kontakt.

You can read the article here. Hope you enjoy it! Happy learning!

I had the greatest honor to be on one of my new favorite podcasts, Pixelated Audio.

James and Bryan run an amazing video game podcast where they select a game and play the all the coolest game music from that game.

My interview debuted on Episode 20 Expansion Pack IV. As custom tradition to their special expansion pack episodes, Bryan and James choose about five video game tracks from any game and alternate playing their choices.

I had a great time being on the podcast and would definitely do doing it again. Click on the lovely art below by James Brunner, co-host of Pixelated Audio, to listen to the episode.
