    I'm an amature music producer. I spend literally every waking moment I can either working on my music, or doing pony related stuff.

  1. Heya! My contact name is nikki-layne Feel free to add me! I LOVE talking about music, but I also enjoy just about any sort of conversation in general. :3
  2. I like this! It's obviously a sad and painful piece and I really relate to the meaning. I've always been of the opinion that the best art is made from the inspiration of some kind of pain, and this poem only reaffirms that notion for me. Good work, man!
  3. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nRMcjkY3J7w Take My Hand (Nikki-Layne Remix).mp3 A song made by my friend Pon3fy, and remixed by myself. I hope you like it!! Please, if you have any opinions on it, let me know! I live for feedback!!
  4. So, I decided to make a remix of Feather's absolutely beautiful rendition of Mad Mares by Ember. I'd really like to hear some opinions on it! https://soundcloud.com/nikki-layne/mad-mares-nikki-layne-remix
  5. Stellar review, DusK! I'm thrilled (and a bit shocked) to have my music featured on your blog! You most certainly will be hearing more from me in the future! Cheers, Nikki-Layne
  6. Brony music producer here, I'd love to help out as an alpha tester
  7. Sorry, bro. There isn't any one video tutorial that can teach you how to make dubstep. Or, I just haven't found it yet. Everything I know how to do I learned either from experimentation, or from trying to imitate something someone else did in a song. Just keep trying, you'll get the hang of it eventually.
  8. I make all sorts of EDM using FL Studio. Here's an example of my best work https://dl.dropbox.com/u/86314533/Eden.mp3 Let me know what you think! I'd love to get your opinion!
  9. Alright! First critique!! Here I goooooooooooo!! First off, your piece has some very well composed melodies. The piano is both well written and well mixed. The only thing I'd change about the piano is the little build that occurs twice in the song. That kind of build is better suited for percussive elements, and it doesn't really lead into anything. If you're going to build tension like that, I think it's best if you follow through with something that releases tension, not just more build up. Second, your drums are a bit weak. I'd recommend turning them up a tad. Also, your clap sample could really use some reverb. Other than that though, they sound fine. The actual rhythms used fit the song quite well. Finally, your overall song structure flows well from one idea to the next, but seems rather ill-defined. I'd recommend putting in more transitional effects to help define each section of the song. Overall, I really like this piece! But then again, I'm a sucker for piano-driven music. XP I hope this helps!
  10. Hello, everypony! My name is Nikki, and I'm here to help those who seek feedback and constructive criticism on their music. Simply post a link to whatever song you want critiqued, and I will reply with an in-depth analysis of what I think of it, as well as what I think you could do to improve it. Please keep in mind though, I am by no means a music professional, and most of what I say will be my own opinion. Though, I will try to remain as neutral as I can. Just take everything I say with a grain of salt, okay?
  11. Please do! I'd love the opportunity to do the mixing for you. But, that doesn't mean you can't do it on your own as well, for practice Plus, you could even just put your own work on youtube if you like your own mixing better! ^^
  12. Founding of Ponyville = Birth of Christ Seems legit. But for real though, I really enjoyed this one. I especially like the way in which you used and manipulated the samples from the show. Very well done, in my opinion.
  13. Picked out? I compose all my own beats from scratch But I have not started composing this one yet. I still need the vocals. Ooh. I know how that goes, man. I used to tend to the ovens at a fast food pizza place. That stupid thing practically cooked my face and throat every day. :/Anyway, good luck on recording the vocals.
  14. You don't need to be able to sing to rap. Rapping is just speaking with rhythm and flow. But if you can't really rap either, I know a good few brony rappers who might be interested in spittin' your verses. I'll see if any of them are interested. Either way, I'll let you know what happens within the next day or so.
  15. Is that really you singing? I only ask because you sound phenomenal! The only thing that had me thinking that this isn't the actual vocals for the song was the mixing. Would you mind having someone else mix this for you? Cause if you don't, then I'd love to do it!
