however, since the yt encoder really doesnt like the noiseshader here is a HQ capture (sizewarning, 600+ MB).

It really could use some evolution in the visual and better camera angles, at least. I bet you could do some really cool with this as a base...

I agree with Preacher, but you're indeed improving. The music was just painful though.

Visuals: ok, needs some progression
Audio: just painful. Had to quit. Most instruments sounds decent, but the composition... well...

What Preacher said. Music is not really my cup of tea either but I wouldn't call it painful.

Overall, it's a really cool prod. Especially considering its a first with a new framework! I'm curious about what synth you used. There's some 4 klang to it but also some Clinkster. However, I have a feeling its none of those. Could you reveal the magic behind those nice instruments?
The composition sounds as if this was done in a hurry and without much inspiration from what it was going to be used for, so I'm not blown away by the music as a whole, but the instruments sure are nice.
Visually, it's quite nice too, but perhaps a bit more could be expected of a 32k. All in all, it's enough for a solid thumb. Good work :-)

Nice. Weird tune, though.

Entertaining, with a naïf touch. Iz gud.

Glitchy as hell and simple... But effective!

Punqtured, there's no other synth than 4Klang, ... thanks ;)
Nice noisey, glitchy goodness! :D I would have preferred something non-doof and a bit more glitchy for the music but not a bad effort on the 4klang sound design, Buckethead!

I like the visual element. Nice industrial feeling, just enough noise and glitchiness to give the feeling of a broken machine. Pulse sync with music is good too.
Not feeling the music, I think I understand the style and intention of it but for me personally it just misses the mark.
I know the effort it takes to make a new framework and it is nice that you now have a solid base to work from in the future.
Thumb from me.

Very nice Mudlord! I really get the feeling that I'm watching a recording of a prod on a beat up old VHS tape :)

nice one :)

... but is it just me, or is the downlload link broken?

Humm, there's something strange with the music. I just have the feeling it's out of tune half of the time. Nice synths though. But mudlord, why doesn't it fit into 4k?
added on the 2014-06-10 15:29:57 by skomp skomp
skomp: the reason is because of the new OGL 3.3 framework. I used GLM for matrices, plus the texgen didn't fit into 4k. Plus the GL3 import resolving too. I was hoping for 16kb but I'm kinda disappointed that didn't work out.

I hope to code a GL3 based 4k some day, I just really need to learn how to do all the new GL3 calls in a size efficient manner. Plus there is the matter of the texgen.

Hehe, funny music!

Yeah, I was pondering stuffing around with tesselation at some point...The GLSL subroutines functionality of GL4 sounds appealing too.

I really wish the framework64k base already had Mac OS X support, and that it would be easier to force 4klang to produce some 64 bit code, or at least code that obeys the stack alignment requirements. Alas, it looks like it will be easier to port this to Linux than to OS X.

well, the only matrix i use in size prod is a rotation matrix, and that one i "hide" in a function and build the actual matrix on the fly. i had the feeling this would be raymarching, dunno, just looked like that. for the texture thing: use shaders. i use ogl 4.3 by now (as you know) but i always go for compatibility profile. loading the needed extensions to draw a full screen is a waste of space when you can just call glRects ;)

cute, although originally I saw the screenshot and thought its cutting the background with shape. Tasty arpeggio in the tune.

Thumbs up for the birdy noises

cool. unlike others i liked the tune. more scenes next time maybe thou for 32k.

I liked the tune much

This was cool. I'm a sucker for the 'scene' switches.

Not so bad. OK.
