ThatJohnnyGuy's News

Posted by ThatJohnnyGuy - July 7th, 2014

Hello fans and friends!  I'm going to talk about my studio news, my voice acting news, my music news, and more!

Voice Acting News

I've been really getting into voice acting lately and would love to get some roles, I've really wanted to get into some anime fan-dubs, games, and whatever else really.  I posted a voice demo, so if you like what you hear, contact me!

Demo: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/579887

Music News

Music-wise, I'm currently working on a remix of a friend's song (posted "Flawed by Nature WIP"), and stuff for a couple of games.

I also did vocals for this song by Jdawg, and I wrote lyrics for it inspired by Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood.  
Check it out: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/581269

I've felt a more electronic vibe lately, so I've mainly been working on my Lectrix side project album.  I've also been making music for an animation studio but they've taken a break on music as they made a pitch for a conference where all the tv networks go, and some are already interested in the show!   Could be my big break. 

Studio News

It actually cost less than I thought!  We decided to move it to mom's basement BUT I STILL need good equipment, will probably rack up $2500 at max but maybe not.  Maybe a little less, so any donations are appreciated!  When it's done, I'm going to take pictures and a video of the studio room.  Donate to my patreon page if you want to help, there are rewards!  Keep in mind, these rewards won't come out until the album is done.

Other News

Just working a lot and doing a Let's Play series of Lichdom Battlemage.  The developers have been thanking me because I've been helpful pointing out bugs in my videos so I've been talking with them over Steam.  I'm loving this game so far.  Check out the playlist, I'll be uploading more tonight and the following days!

That's all, folks!  In my next post, you might get to see the studio!  It's going to be done soonish.

So I got $400 headphones to do work in the meantime...yeah yeah i know shuddup >_> aannd, I want to get back into voice acting, plus more, see below!

1.  I said SCREW IT and during the day seems my neighbors don't mind now since I've cut back on vocal work and as long as it's not late at night and not so often in the day I should be fine.  So I'll be doing instrumentals and mixing stuff better with my headphones and slowly progressing on the album.

2. I'm still getting the studio and turning it into a business, any donations are appreciated.  (http://www.patreon.com/realfaction)

UPDATE: We got the price, need to get loan, might be ok.  Could be built in a couple weeks or less or around that time.  I'm going to turn it into my business as a second job, people can record vocals and acoustic guitar as well as piano.  Don't have a name for the studio yet, still gotta think.

3. I want to get back into voice acting, as I've been doing both music work and now voice acting for an animation studio that has been working on a show to pitch to tv networks (they got connections, no joke).  Here's my latest voice demo: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/579887?updated=1

PS: I'll even do anime abridged dub stuff or stuff like that. 

4.  I've been doing a Let's Play series of Lichdom: Battlemage on my youtube channel, I'm very impressed with this game, unlike most modern day generic titles. 

Check it: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLM_ItXF6mgdowopsD_j4eeOvnDmpfNu-R

Thanks for yout support and those who have donated so far though it's far off from what I need.  So what's up with YOU guys?

Posted by ThatJohnnyGuy - June 17th, 2014

PLEASE share this with anyone you can!  I can't make music again until I get this studio and I'm not asking for a whole lot, it would mean a lot if anyone could donate.  I do work for an animation studio and it's become harder because of neighbors here and I really want to keep this job :(.  Please guys, I need you.

You can Donate here: http://www.patreon.com/realfaction
And here: http://www.gofundme.com/realfaction

I've only recieved a few donations with Patreon but regardless no matter how you donate, you'll get your rewards when it's time.  In the links are a PREVIEW to the upcoming album.  I've worked hard for practically free for years guys and well now I HAVE to have money because of my living space limiting me :(

Big thanks to Toxi and AkiCarlito for making an amazing album cover!

Hey guys, know I haven't posted in a while, just haven't had anything to post.  Lately I've been going through a rough time right now...won't go into pointless details, but I won't be around for a while, maybe till next month or July, when my new album comes out.  Till then, I'll be working on the album and well...dealing with life.

I got a new Blue Yeti Pro microphone that's studio quality and I'm recording with it for this new album and currently have an NG artist working on the album cover painting over a photograph a good friend of mine took herself and edited.  I'm just working on laying down vocals and finishing instrumentals.

Anyway, felt pretty bad lately, so won't be around much till a bit before the album's release when I get  the single out.  Laters....v___v

The A.I.M. (Art-Inspired Music) resuts are here as well as the album! Check it out!

Download the album FREE: http://artinspiredmusic.bandcamp.com/album/a-i-m-vol-2-art-inspired-music


Also, Back-From-Purgatory and I have our own manga, so far there's two issues, if you want to see more, go to her website forums in the anime section, or this link: http://backfrompurgatory.com/forum/index.php?topic=213

Note: I didn't draw this stuff, it's stuff from Manga Maker Comipro, the program I used to make this, which is really fun.  In the future I want to ask some NG artists to draw some backgrounds and some clothes.  I DID customize some things though and worked with the program.  Warning, mild explicit language...lol. 





Posted by ThatJohnnyGuy - April 8th, 2014

You asked me questions, and now I answered!  I didn't answer them all because either they were too odd, same question was asked, or i didn't have an answer. Sorry about the muted audio in one section, my video has given me serious problems with this for some reason i dont know, i had to literally reupload this a few times and re edit it just to get most of the audio.  Enjoy guys!



Posted by ThatJohnnyGuy - April 2nd, 2014

Very annoying clipping problems with Guitar Rig 5 in FL Studio 10, it's not the volume levels, this just started happening out of nowhere, didn't change a thing. It's like a glitch and I don't know how to fix it. Here's a video and you'll get to see the song I'm working on to hear the clipping issue.  Does anyone know how to fix this?

UPDATE: It's the fact I have so many of Kontakt 5 and Guitar Rig 5 running, something to do with my computer slowing down, it isn't acting as fast for some reason.  I got some advice on the forum thread I posted that may help, gonna probably have to start over on some songs and keep this in mind from now on.

Ask Me Anything!

I really have nothing else to post about or upload at the moment, life is same old, same old, just working a lot and working on music for an animation company and a game soundtrack for an NG game, so I figured, "it's about time I did this".  Basically, in the comments, ask me anything, and I will post a video answering the questions.  Tell me if you wish to remain anonymous or not. 

I also have the Art-Inspired Music contest going on, deadline is April 14th!  Go check the Newgrounds front page and see the scheduled events at the left to go to the thread in the Audio Forum.  Or just check the Audio Forum, it's one of the hot topics at the moment. 

Ask away!

Art-Inspired Music (A.I.M.) Contest 2014

Well folks, it's finally happenin!  Just waiting for Tom Fulp to front page the thread, but the 2nd AIM contest is here!  I want to try to make it annual.  If you're a musician, go check it out in the  audio forum, there's cash prizes and it's a fun experience.  Just PLEASE read the rules, because someone posted in the submission thread when they shouldn't have and submitted way too early.  It goes from March 9th to April 14th.

Unboxing the LAST Mystery Box

I'm sad the Newgrounds Store is closing March 6th (it was the 5th when I filmed the video before they extended it a day), but it's going out with a bang!  As a tribute to the store, I filmed my first reactions unboxing the thing.  I got a LOT of stuff for $25.  After filming, from talking around, I realized I had the last Mystery Box in NG Store history!  I wanted to share th experience with you guys :) this is historical.  Sorry for the slight audio cut outs, had technical difficulties. Here's the video: 


EDIT: Unfortunately I've been informed I no longer had the last Mystery Box because they decided to put up two more...so this is the last of 3.
