“Hey guys! I am @very Caldwell, and I produce music under the stage name “@CE”. Just recently I finished a song I wrote on Rhythm Core Alpha 2, and I wanted to share it with you all! (The only part of this song that was not made on the 3DS was the vocoder)
Enjoy, & feedback is totally appreciated!! ^.~”
@very, we think this is awesome! Finally somebody makes good use of all those dubstep wub sounds that I put in there! I can also hear great use of the “GHG Flying” sound (“Green-Haired Girl Flying”: the Lum-flying sound). This is great stuff, and I can’t wait to hear what you do next!
Here is a Nintendo 3DS X rocking a Rhythm Core Alpha 2 vinyl sticker, made for us by our good friend Bryce up in San Mateo. Bryce also did the laser cutting on all the parts we used to make the standee we showed before. Thanks so much for all the hard work, Bryce!
SoftEgg’s Timon Marmex is not only
demoing Rhythm Core Alpha 2 all day at Rockage 3.0 at the San Jose State University Student Center, but he is scheduled to play a full set on the stage, probably somewhere between 3:30 and 4:30pm. San Jose peeps represent! http://rockagesj.tumblr.com/
Timon Marmex has created another fantastic Rhythm Core Alpha 2 composition! His song “So Wrong” was originally featured on his album “White Collar Punk” and has now been lovingly rendered using Rhythm Core Alpha 2 and is quite possibly better than the original! Give it a listen!
It looks like more people bought Rhythm Core Alpha 2 and Rhythm Core Alpha in January than even at the launch of Rhythm Core Alpha 2! This means more people are discovering the joy of making their own music thanks to Rhythm Core Alpha 1 & 2 and we think that is pretty awesome!
Certainly, a lot of people got new 3DS and 2DS systems for Christmas, and that helps a lot! But we have also been demoing like crazy at events like Magfest in National Harbor, Maryland, Frequency 3.0 in Los Angeles, California, and even Sparklecon at 23b Shop in Fullerton! We’ve had fliers out at Anime LA in Los Angeles, and even chatted up some folks at NAMM in Anaheim, California.
Our next stop is Rockage at San Jose State University, followed by Timon Marmex performances at Blacklight District Lounge in Long Beach, CA on February 12th, and Five Star Bar in Downtown Los Angeles on February 19th (right around the corner from where Frequency was!) We’ve planned to be at the LA Science Fair Mini Maker Faire again at the end of March and just applied for the original Bay Area Maker Faire in May. There are a lot more events scheduled as well, so it looks to be a busy year!
This is very exciting for us! Long ago we did live in the SF bay area for about a year and it always holds a special place in our heart. We know so many awesome chiptune artists up in the bay area and have been honored to share the stage with Slime Girls and Crashfaster as well as many others, so being able to play up there is a big deal for us!
So, San Francisco Bay Area folks be sure to check us out at Rockage 3.0!
Playing live with Rhythm Core Alpha and Rhythm Core Alpha 2 is easy and fun, but having a place to set your DSi or 3DS down during a performance can be tricky sometimes.
Awhile ago we devised a microphone stand for the Nintendo DSi and 3DS that we fabricated ourselves out of metal. Now we have designed a new version to be printed on 3D printers. We’re about to go do a test print and see how it works.
