Tripcodes are a way to identify yourself between posts without having to register with the site. To use a tripcode, enter your name as ‹name›#‹key›.You can choose anything you want as the key—it is private and will never be shown to other posters or stored on the server. For example:

Rarity#bestpony → Rarity!.4PK7yxdII

If you want a tripcode containing specific words, you can download a program designed to search for tripcodes, such as Tripcode Explorer.

Email?

Entering an e-mail is optional.

There are also code words you can enter here which perform certain actions when you submit your post.

  • sage — lets you post without bumping a thread.
  • nonoko — uses the original post behavior to redirect to the board index.

These can be used at the same time as an e-mail address by typing ‹email›#‹action›.

You can also use Skype names in place of an e-mail. The notation is the same as a link to a username on skype itself, which is skype:‹username›

I got a copy of Fl Studio a couple of days ago. After a few hours of watching tutorials and then messing around for a while, about 12 hours later I came up with this:

Any suggestions for things I could do differently in the future?

One thing you might play with is listening to the 'z' axis of your mix. Everything in this arrangement is pretty 'up front'; it could benefit from some extra-dimensional breathing room.

One simple technique for doing this is reverb. Take a moment to listen to this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SFsHSHE-iJQ

The beat is up front, and the voice and bass have a slight echo on them which puts them in relief. This is just an example; it might be fun to go through your favorite recordings and pay attention to how sonic space is used.

I like the roundness of the keyboard texture you are using in this, but the vocal track sounds a bit raw on top of it. Maybe see if a filter can bring out a flavorful contrast?

>>2476 That sounds like a great idea! I'll try playing around with it, but I'm still kind of learning as I go along. I tried doing a few things to the voice track originally, but I couldn't get it to sound decent at the time. will have to check some more tutorials I guess. Thanks for your feedback!

Great first attempt.

The music needs more power though. The drums and especially the keyboard sound too soft.

>>2476
Great music choice!

>>2479 Thanks! I guess I did turn them down a bit more than I intended, so I'll keep that in mind for next time. :)
