    Fancy a mind meld? Here’s a publicly accessible/editable Google Drive folder for Zynewave Podium Collaborations.

    As there has been zero traffic at the above location, I have removed the folder. Aside from that, I’d like to use the space to back up data.

    Keep hurling works at our SoundCloud Group and contact each other there for collaborations.

    Why not do a “Nucleum Songs Parade”? I thought the following rules:

    – Add your song no later than 31/12/2012 (I’m Italian … :wink:).
    – Vote for the entire month of January.
    – The first week of February Zynewave will decree officially the winner!

    Let me know what you think.

    Greetings.

    That’s a great idea Me le suono!
    I’m deathly fearful it could turn out to be a one horse race. There’s been no addition to the collaboration folder since its creation. Leaving me to wonder whether the restriction of zPlugins only is a little stifling. For my part, I’ve lost some momentum in writing, so this could spur some action. Deadlines serve as strong motivation.

    Our SoundCloud Group could be the ideal venue. The ♥ Save to Favourites button would serve as an accurate vote counter. It’s just a shame entries can’t be organised into sets. That option is not available for SoundCloud groups 😥

    Alternatively we could use this Google Page.
    I am mindful of Google’s policy on contests and promotions. But if there are no prizes other than accolades awarded and we claim to use the page like a community noticeboard, I think we’ll come off as harmless hobbyists/enthusiasts.

    So to recap:

    1. Write something which features Zynewave’s Nucleum.
    2. Upload to our SoundCloud group
      You don’t need to register or login! Just use the dropbox.
      (or your YouTube channel, or anything else that hosts media).
    3. Post a link of your work on the page. If you don’t have a Google account, pm me and I’ll put a link to your track on the page.

    p.s. I can add you as page manager, Me le suono! I just need your email address to send an invite. pm it to me if you like 8)

    I realized after the difficulty to make available tracks. Your solution is perfect: simple and fast.

    In fact, I too would have expected more enthusiasm and more participation but I realize that even I don’t had much time to devote to Podium. I have so many ideas but little time. 😥

    As for the restrictions on plugins, I just say that I started to fiddle around with electronic music ten years ago with a software (Magix MM 3.0, 1997 version!) that had only playing midi sequences and had only distortion, reverb and echo and a single EQ on the master track. Therefore, they must commit only with the automation and the imagination! :mrgreen:

    Damn life – for being such a distraction. 😉

    It is a pity the folder sits idle. I was hoping to add other people’s synth designs to my preset collection.

    A lot has changed in 15 years. No doubt, despite the minimal features of Magix, it still yielded music.

    The first bit of computer music I made was with OctaMED.

    The ability to write music, without having to play an instrument, or spend lots of money on hardware, blew me away. It was 2 solid days of blissful exploration, if a little clunky and unintuitive.

    Wow, OctaMed, oldschool, I think! I really started originally with Fast Tracker II, which looks newer than OctaMed (though I could be wrong).

    Oh, I lie. I first used SoundClub, but it was still capable of more channels than that one looks like it is.

    I guess, technically I wrote music first in some old Tandy 16 colour computer that could only play 3 PC speaker bleeps at once, using sheet music style notes…

    But yeah, I’m impressed! And similarly, I was also blown away by the easiness of making music without expensive hardware and so on! (Actually since I was a kid I didn’t even really know that sort of hardware was out there, so this was the only way I was aware of to write music).

    Thanks for the nostalgia trip. 🙂
