Hey there! My name is Jackson, most of you will know me by my alias, Xykrotik. (Formerly Nightmare) I'm a nerd, a big nerd, and I love making video game music! I tend to focus my efforts on more orchestral based covers and arrangements of video game and anime music. I tend to be very experimental though, so sometimes you may not hear a traditional orchestral track. 

I always do my best to create something I'm primarily satisfied with, but also something that you guys would be satisfied with as well. I try to make my arrangements and covers the best that they can be to make for a better listening experience! Having your support would help push me further to where I would like to be as a musician and allow me to not only get better but to also reward you guys for your support!

Your money goes towards:
  • Most importantly, affording the cover licenses that distributing my covers requires. Cover licenses are required for any songs you distribute that aren't your original composition, and instead, you are "covering" someone else's composition.(For example, I would need a cover license to distribute an orchestral cover of Green Hill Zone from Sonic)
  • Upgrading and/or repairing audio equipment(Speakers, sample libraries, headphones, mics, midi keyboard, etc.)
  • Hard Drive and Solid State Drives - Why? Well, sample libraries take up a TON of space and the gigabytes add up fast!
  • Editing programs, audio plugins, etc. - There are always new things that are coming out, and I always do hefty research before purchasing, so don't think I'll be blowing money on all of this all the time, only when it's needed!

I also plan to have occasional streams where I create my covers/arrangements and also just to hang out, play some games, and be friendly with you guys! Your support means the world to me, so I want to do all I can to form a connection with my fans so they can feel like they're a part of the process too! If you don't want to pledge any money and would rather just watch the music videos on YouTube, then that's absolutely fine! That still counts as support and I'll be grateful all the same. 

Thanks for the support!

This would help me cover the cost of cover song licenses. It would make distributing my music to storefronts significantly easier and faster. This would also help me cover the cost of mastering. (Only if I were in a pinch and trying to get the song out to you quickly, otherwise I do most of the mastering on the tracks myself.)
